Amazon Baby

July 31, 2011

Anna had her 4 month check-up yesterday. She’s currently taller than the average 7 month old that’s taller than 97% of other babies her age, heavier than 95%, and her head is also larger than 95% of other 4 month olds. Hey, at least she’s proportioned. The doc said she’s the largest 4 month old he’s seen in a long time.

Other than her size, she is changing so much all the time. She laughs all the time – mostly at Alice. Serious belly laughs. She is also reaching out for things and grabbing them, so now we have to be even more vigilant about what Alice might set in front of her – Cheez-its, pretzels, crayons, etc. Always on our toes. Anna is also rolling over a bunch and we’ve heard that if she’s on her tummy for a while, she’ll even scoot forward a bit. Trouble is just around the corner.

We’ve been really enjoying walks around the neighborhood. These days we’re on the lookout for Helen the Spider (of the Be Nice to Spiders fame), and every time we go to one playground, we see her in a giant web.

Now for pictures and stuff. First we have Alice putting Deacon night-night. Keep in mind it’s probably 95 degrees, with 80% humidity, and Deacon is letting Alice cover him in a fleece blanket. What a sport.

Next is an absolute show-stopper of a picture that will soon be enlarged and turned into wallpaper for the living room.

Finally, we have a little video of Anna talking and Alice, well, being Alice.
