Being 4 months old is tough!

4 Months Already!!!!
Luca had her 4 month appointment yesterday, and the poor girl had a cold when we went in. So, to add insult to injury, she got 4 vaccines and had her ears cleaned out. Needless to say, she wasn't SUPER amused with the process, but little trooper that she is, she slept it off and was in a good mood the rest of the day.

Chillin' after the vaccines and Baby Tylenol kicked in.

Anyhow, she's still small (11.4 pounds), but doing so well on her milestones that her Dr is not at all worried about that. So, I thought I'd share some pictures highlighting her milestones. I think once you review them, you will agreee we are raising a genius.

Here is Luca, sitting up and explaining to Daddy that crabs are cold water invertebrates AND make a delicious rattle/chew toy.

If she looks confused, it's only because the duck isn't wearing any pants.

She's already breezing through books, such as the Classic 'Touch and Feel Farm'.

Yes, the toy is the size of her head, but that won't stop her from holding it.

Luca and Piggy: BFFs

There's no denying it....what Piggy wants, Piggy gets. And Piggy wants everyone, large and small, to love her. In an effort to make Luca love her, she has taken to following us wherever we go, just in case Luca might possibly reach out and touch her. By the way, the face in the last picture there is the same one she makes when we try to kiss her cheek.

Two smiling, happy girls!

Luca just wanted to show Piggy her cool wrist rattles.....

...but Pig had other ideas.

Luca and Melody...friends before they were born!

Our friends Kristin and Jeremy had a baby about 3 months before Luca was born. The beautiful Melody Eileen is quite the charmer with all that hair and those big, beautiful eyes! They knew each other before they were even born (why do I get the feeling they'll be tired of hearing THAT someday?). Proof of this can be seen below:

Kristin and Katie: This was on New Year's Eve 2006. Kristin was due almost exactly a month after this, and I was due in May.

And here I am, about 7 months pregnant, babysitting a 2 week old Melody. Excuse my look...I was too busy creating life to bother with looking presentable (hahaha).

Anyhow, that was then. And this is now! We were lucky to be entrusted with watching Melody so her parents could get out for the night, and we had so much fun. It was great because it happened to coincide with Luca's discovery that other kids are super fun to stare at and touch. And, by the by, it was just coincidence that they ended up color coordinated. Not only is Kristin a great friend, but she clearly has impeccable choice in clothing, if you ask me!

First Melody noticed Luca and reached out to her.

Initally Luca was not sure how she felt about the whole thing.

So, she reached out and gave Melody's tummy a little poke.

Turns out....she decided this was fun!

I fully plan on torturing them with these pictures when they are both 15 and SO embarrased by their parents!

Too cool that Luca has a BFF already! She's well on her way to being the captain of the cheerleading squad. ;)
