Four months old

I know I say this every month but I really cannot believe that the babies are four months old! It really has flown by and while I am ready for this newborn baby phase to be over I am a little sad that they are growing up so fast!  Emma and Levi have had a busy month.  We went many new places and learned a lot of different things like they are not ready for restaurants! Ha!  During this last month we went: to Old Navy, the eye Dr, the pediatrician, children's hospital, Mimi's house, my sisters house, school and Chuys!  We are slowly trying to take the babies more places but come October we will be basically shut ins until April.  October begins RSV season and it is DANGEROUS for the babies to get this.  So we will be basically living at home with the occasional visitor! 

A few other exciting things happened during the babies fourth month. Levi rolled over! He has only done it a handful of times but we are still working.  Both babies have started smiling and I am absolutely in love with those little gummy grins. Levi started laughing and it is hysterical! We have been going on morning walks now that it is not as hot as the sun in Texas. They love their walks and it helps them to take a good morning nap! We have also started sleep training the babies and they are starting to get the hang of it. They usually eat a bottle and go to bed somewhere between 7-8 and then we dream feed them around 11  and they sleep until between 6:30- 7:30.  We are still trying to nail down a daily routine but one thing at a time! This month we also started rice cereal.  It has been slow going as they just aren't used to it but they are starting to get the hang of it!  Here are their four month letters:"

Dear Emma aka pretty princess, precious darling, angel, Emma delima, pumpkin~

Mommy and Daddy are so in love with you!  You are the sweetest little thing and you rarely cry. They only time you cry is when you have a tummy ache or are really hungry. Your smile makes my heart sing and I fall in love with you more and more each day,. You are still tiny and mommy worries you are not gaining enough weight!  You are a pretty good sleeper and usually have to be woken up to eat because your brother is starving.  You love to swing or sit in the bouncy but your favorite place to sleep is on daddy's chest!  We love you so much Emma Gentry and can't wait to watch you grow!

You have been diagnosed with asthma. We aren't sure that you actually have it yet but you are on your way. Breathing treatments should be interesting!

At our four month checkup the dr said the babies are doing well. We are supposed to work on the gross motor skills and will be getting an evaluation by ECI (early childhood intervention) to see if they need any extra support!  Here are some pictures from the last month!
