4 months old

Maggie is now 4 months. She had her check up today. Maggie is 12 lbs 3 oz and 25 inches (25th percentile and 75th). She did well with her vaccinations, and got some cool rainbow bandaids. Besides the cold I gave her, she is healthy. Some new things she can do now are grabbing things on purpose.

That is from Maggie's 4 month checkup. So she was just a little bit smaller than Evie Jane.

who's a bad blogger?

Sorry for my lack of posting. Can I blame it on the cloudy, gray weather?
We are still here in Chubbuck, and looking for a house in Lewiston. We will be headed up there mid August. Sam is working hard, and I am keeping busy with the girls.
Maggie is coming into her own, and is very chatty. I have a constant commentary, or singing. It is pretty sweet. Her favorite songs to sing are her "ABCs", "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star", "Baa, Baa Black Sheep" and songs from her Leapfrog DVDs.
I walked downstairs after my shower yesterday to discover her headed upstairs with a glass full of Fritos. Today she dumped the salt out and had a little snack.
Sometimes when we are driving around and both girls are talking I realize how loud it is. How did I get such noisy kids? I love it! "Let's Go to School" and "Max and Ruby" are her favorites.
Evie had her 4 month check up two days ago. She is healthy as can be. She did great for the doctor, but the nurse is a different story. As soon as the nurse scooted Evie up to see how long she was, she started bawling. And when the nurse came in the door to give her her vaccinations she started screaming before she even touched her. Maggie came along and kept saying "you'll be just fine, baby sister" and wanting to see her bandaids.
Here are the 4 month stats: 12 lb 14 oz, 25 inches, about 20% and 80%.
Some things Evie Jane likes to do: watch Maggie, lay on her stomach with her head up, grab her toes, suck on her shirt, drool, and talk. She is also really tickleish, and just all around adorable.

a little update in words:

We are doing fine down in Southern Idaho, holding onto the fact that it will warm up, and it will get hot and we will pull out the baby pool, and maybe I will even get a tan...
Sam has been out of town this week for work, so I have been trying to fill up my time by going to Idaho Falls (about 45 minutes from us) to shop (we have gone twice), and going to Aberdeen (45 min) to see Grandma Patty.
When we are at home I do the usual stuff minus cooking dinner. Leftovers for me and Maggie. After dinner we have been walking to visit some horses that are right down the road and around the corner from us. Maggie loves it and starts talking the second we step out the door. She just goes down the sidewalk pulling her wagon with her baby in it and stopping to wave at all the cars that pass us by. She is such a fun friend for me to go shopping and walking with.
Evie also enjoys the walks. She is at a great age. She is sturdy, and grabbing at things (she got my bangs yesterday), rolling over and giggling. Maggie loves to try and make her laugh, Evie usually likes it, but sometimes I have to intervene when the playing gets a little too rough.
Sam took the camera with him, but I will try and get some pictures up once he gets home...
