Four Months Old

Four months old already. 

Hazel is such a happy baby. She sleeps through the night most of the time, and loves to stand up on your lap. She is starting to laugh out loud, although it usually results in hiccups, and she has definitely found her fingers. Probably a good thing since she isn't the best at keeping in her binki. We have settled into a nice routine, but she also puts up with the bouncing around that inevitably happens with three older siblings and errands to run. 

She is growing right on track:

Height: 24 1/2 in (52%)
Weight: 13 lbs 9 oz (36%)
Head: 41.9 cm (85%)

She is a healthy, happy girl.

Blue Sun Soda

We took the kids in search of some local Whistler Soda and found a fun old truck, pinball machines, popcorn, and rows of candy at their new location. A fun break in our Saturday afternoon.

Taste Tester

He is always happy to taste the dough to make sure the cookies will be great.

Pretty sure his face says it all!

Sneaky February Deliveries....

This giant envelope has been floating around our house for the last couple of weeks. The challenge was to write a note to someone in the family and sneak it under their pillow. Whoever received it, wrote a new note the next day and delivered it to keep things going. It has been fun both to receive notes from the kids, and to see what they would write to each other. Such a simple way to share things we love about each other. I will definitely be tucking this envelope in the holiday box to repeat next year.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Packages in the mail are always our favorite...
And getting an early holiday package is the best!

Super excited! Thanks for the new hats Grandma!
They loved that they were all a little bit different.

 Can I get a "Wahoo"?

Hazel was happy to be part of the fun too.

 Sadie literally couldn't wait to eat the M&Ms.  I think they lasted about 10 minutes.
The kids have been wearing their hats everyday since they arrived.
These girls were even wearing them to bed.

We spent some time finishing Valentine's Day boxes on Saturday, then the girls had fun at school with parties and sharing of treats today. To celebrate at home, the kids love to get out the "fancy glasses" so we had sparkling juice, heart shaped jello, and other favorites for dinner. During the day, Graham helped me get cupcakes ready by adding the sprinkles. It was a fun night together!

Harry Potter Fun

We made sure to mark our calendars for the Harry Potter activity at our local library. Clara was especially anxious to go when her teacher told the class she would be there too. The girls were excited to dress the part and Graham was just excited to come along. They stopped at the sorting hat first then had a few activities to try out. They made wands, met some snakes, and went on a scavenger hunt through the library to figure out a secret spell and earn a galleon. 

Taking a rest after their hard work on the scavenger hunt.

 Graham had fun going down the line of snakes and learning what species each of them were.

It was a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Three Months

Going back into baby mode has been a serious adjustment.
Especially when figured into the routines and activities of the other three.
But this girl is such a sweet baby. She makes it completely worth it.

It doesn't hurt that she has been sleeping through the night for the last couple of weeks. 
Bless her. She must know that her mom is much happier with some good solid sleep.
And she is at that point where she smiles about everything and is just on the edge of laughing.
So fun. We are all in love with her.
