Look Ma, No Swaddle!

Now that Naomi started rolling over, we stopped swaddling her cold turkey.  Josh and I anticipated a couple of sleepless nights as she got used to her new found freedom but so far, she had been doing great.  We think she may even be happier without the swaddle! 

And Naomi isn't the only happy one.  Now that she is out of the swaddle, Josh no longer has to get up in the middle of the night to reswaddle her when she feeds (as hard as I tried, I could never swaddle quite like Josh can).  Way to go, Naomi!

4 months going on 9

Naomi had her 4 month check-up today.  She weighed in at 14lb 2oz and her lenght is 26 3/4" - the doctor told us she is off the charts for length and is actually the length of the average 9m old.  No wonder she's already growing out of some of her 6m old clothes!

She also got two vaccinations today.  Does this look a girl who just got two shots in the leg?

Naomi versus Naomi

At first it was a fair and even duel but the real Naomi has been tanking up and now definitely has the advantage - Naomi doll doesn't stand a chance against those roly poly thighs!


Our little gift

All wrapped up with a bow!

Naomi has been practicing sitting up like a big girl in her Bumbo.  Here's a picture and a short video:

Mother's Day

I had  fantastic first mother's day on Sunday.  Not only did I get to spend the day with Josh and Naomi, but my mom, dad, sister Jenee and brother-in-law Jason were visiting.  Josh treated us to a yummy brunch and then we lounged around the rest of the afternoon. 

Here are some pics from mother's day as well as from the last few days:

Wenley was such a good dog!

And a special mother's day gift to me from Jenee....a necklace she made that has a 'N' engraved on it as well as Naomi's birthstone

Special morning moment

I thought this picture was so cute it was worth showing Josh with his shirt off (despite Seth's protests).  :)
