big 4 month old girl!!!

i seriously want to scream SLOW DOWN from the top of my lungs. this child is growing soooo fast and changing so much. looking at her picture from the day we brought her home (see in post below) i just can't believe how different she is. instead of a mass of black hair, she has a head covered in blonde fuzz. and since last month alone, she can laugh, she can coo (and even copy some noises), she can spin around in her exersaucer,

she has been sleeping through the night for about 6 weeks, she can roll over from her belly to her back

and as of yesterday...the child has a TOOTH!!! holy cow!! it was still another 2 months before the boys got their first tooth. i knew she had been drooling a lot (not uncommon b/c 3 months is when the salivary glands start to produce saliva) and i could see 2 big knots in her bottom gums, but lots of babies have those for a few months before anything breaks through. but oh no...miss priss is READY!! i can feel it today. (it's the right central incisor.) she is my last baby and i just want her to slow down!!
oh...and she now gets to start eating cereal. she has done pretty good this week. she is getting the hang of it. we go to the doctor next week for her 4 month check up and shots :( so i'll give you stats then. (but i know she is a big girl!!) like her brother, she has inherited a ton of nicknames (oddly, luke only ever got 1.) she is called sissy, baby sissy, sis, bitty girl, bitters, girly girl, angel girl...i think the list goes on.

I totally understand the "slow down" thoughts! I feel the same with my sweet boy! I have a feeling (a very sad feeling) that he is going to be my last and I just want to hold on to this tiny speck of time forever.
Happy 4 month Miss Ally Claire!

Oh my, she is looking much older.. It's bitter sweet... And all the stuff in the refrigerator.. I'm just going to say that our kids are super busy because they're smart... Looks like ya'll are having tons of fun. Have you given up on having your house clean all the time yet?
