Lynnea's Prayer

Last night Lynnea said her prayers all by herself. Usually I give her some suggestions, but this one was super cute.

"Father in Heaven, thank you for the food. (pause) Thank you for Jesus. (pause) Thank you for Santa. (pause) Thank you for mamma and daddy and Jordan. Jesus Christ, amen.

The pauses were especially cute because I could tell she was thinking hard. I'm just glad I made #4 - I mean, what more can I expect...not even mom can top food, Jesus, and Santa!

Jordan's 4 Month Checkup

No pictures with this update, but here are the stats from Jordan's checkup today.

  • height: 25 inches (55%)
  • weight: 13 lbs 14 ozs (29%)
  • head: 16 3/4 inches (57%)

He's getting so big now! He's rolled over a few times already (pretty sure they were all by accident though). He's sitting up stronger, and really grabbing for objects now. His hands are getting fast! Last night he got a handful of my mashed potatoes...lucky kid!

Still as happy and smiley as ever. I'm getting pictures taken of him this weekend or next so I'll be posting some keepers soon! Keep an eye out!

I have come to grips with the fact that I am just not a cake decorator. This may be the ugliest birthday cake of all time. If not, it's got to be in the top three. "Unappetizing" would definately be a euphensim here. But Lizzie and all her friends loved it!

She loves her mini tea set from Grandma Crowley!

Rod took Lizzie to the store and bought her flowers when he came home from work tonight. She wore her pink boots in honor of the event!
Caitlin was happy to help Lizzie in any way possible! Lizzie was very nice and let Caitlin take the ribbon off her presents. She loved opening her presents!
She had two parties- her many friends came over yesterday and we did the "friend" party then. Today, being her real birthday, we had our family party. We celebrated with homemade mac-n-cheese, peas, honeydew, and hot dogs! A true 4-year-old feast!
Then we go around the table and say what we love about Lizzie. Then we watch the "Lizzie show"- a slideshow I made for each girl after they turned 1 of their first year of life. Then presents, then cake! But having two parties- it's more like cake remnant. Lizzie didn't seem to mind.

It was a little tough for Caitlin watching Lizzie get all the attention over the past two days. But losing (and swallowing!) her tooth was very exciting for her! She loved waking up to find 3 quarters and some fairy dust where her note "Dear tooth fairy, I swallowed my tooth. Love, Caitlin" had been!
