4 Months Old!

Our little ray of sunshine is now 4 months old! She has matured so much this last month. She now laughs (we think it's her baby version of laughing), likes to stand assisted, sits with assistance and is getting cuter and more fun with each passing day. She is a good baby, but clingy and super stubborn. I worked 1 shift at Williams Sonoma and they will be phasing me in soon, so we are trying to get Summer to drink from a bottle. No such luck.

Somerset still doesn't have a real schedule yet, but I look forward to her falling into one. Luckily for me, her and Leo wake up around the same time everyday, which is between 7:30-8 a.m. She still wakes up 2-3 times a night. She also naps 3-4 times a day, but these naps are short and often interrupted by her boisterous brother.

Leo is as clever and adorable as ever. He loves the Blazers now and is constantly talking about his favorite Blazer, Nick Batum. He has recently started collecting basketball cards and knows the names of many of the players.

His obsession with Star Wars continues. He isn't just a fan, he's an expert. We plan to have a Star Wars themed birthday for him this year. He is very imaginative and builds excellent x-wing fighters and other space ships. We have checked out every children's book in the library pertaining to Star Wars, but luckily, he also like Spiderman, so we have moved on to those books.

Leo's love for Summy is unbelievable. He always talks about how sweet and gorgeous she is. I have never detected an iota of jealousy from Leo towards his baby sister, which speaks volumes about what a kind spirit he has.

Joe has taken up home brewing. He has fully immersed himself in his new hobby and is super excited to try his first batch of beer (me too). Photos to follow soon!

I have started running again and have enjoyed the chilly, yet exhilarating exercise. It is so nice to have a moment to myself, even if it is physically painful. I love running through the neighborhood....our neighborhood!
