Anyways, in the past month we have landed a new job, had Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease, attended a wedding, gone on vacation, turned FOUR months old, got shots, had play dates, given up naps, attended a birthday party, grown two teeth, rolled over, and fallen out of the crib. The last three events occurred today. It was a busy, busy, busy day.
|Happy four months, baby Abby!|
Turning four months means 2 shots and an oral vaccine. It also means updated statistics. We all knew she was a big girl. But , we had NO idea that she would weight 20 pounds, 1 ounce (99.99 %) at 4 months old and measure in at 28 inches (99.99%). She IS incredible and likely the biggest baby EVER!
Ella is becoming quite the master at the potty, especially when she is "napping". She knows just how to manipulate mommy into taking her out of the crib. All she has to say is "wanna go potty". And she does. She goes, pours it in the big potty, and wants to try again. Then she goes.... again. We spend lots of time at the potty when she should be napping. Stinker.
Well, today was no different. Abby and I were having some time together while Ryan was at Costco, of course. Then I hear the infamous quote, "Wanna go potty." So I place Abs on the play mat and head upstairs. Abs is content. Ella does her thing once. Then twice. And while she it trying for her third little sprinkle I hear Abby wail. And I knew, I just knew. Poor Abs rolled over with no cheering squad, no round of applause, and no one there to comfort her. I ran downstairs and there she was, panicking. To make matters worse for her I wanted to take a picture. I rummaged through the diaper bag looking for our camera. Can't find it. Look again. Not there and so I empty out every pocket. Abs is beyond herself but to help ease my mother's guilt I want to get the REAL result on film. It was not meant to be.
Minutes later via phone Ryan informed me the camera was in the big pocket. Silly boy, that pocket is for the changing mat, nothing else. Uggggghhhh. I totally missed the shot.
Here is the reenactment:
|This is where Abby was when she did roll over except she had tears... lots of them.|
|The mess mommy made looking for the camera. Mommy fail.|
