Hailey Update

I'm sure you all have been waiting for an update on our now almost four month old. (I didn't post her three month picture given all the birthdays and other news but this is her 3 month shot!)

Hailey continues to be a fairly laid back kid.  She rarely cries and when she does it's easy to calm her down. She does recognize us now so if we put her down and walk away, she doesn't like that unless she spots something interesting on the ceiling or has a toy to play with to occupy her time. Her neck muscles are getting stronger so she's almost holding her head up by herself now. She's not sleeping through the night yet but she's doing a pretty consistent job of sleeping from about 7:45 p.m. until about 4 or 5 a.m. Then she eats and it's back to sleep until about 7 a.m. Not too bad.

She is also a very happy, smiley kid. It's easy to get her to smile or make her laugh. Simply tickle her collar bone and she'll let out an adorable little giggle. I need to get that on video! Austen and Peyton continue to be a great big brother and sister and hold her or entertain her whenever needed. Austen is usually the one who tries to soothe her if she fusses at all. He'll try to stick the pacifier in her mouth and if that fails, he'll sing.

Next week she goes back to the doctor for her 4 month check up so we'll get an update on height and weight. She certainly has no issues eating and rarely spits up either. She has outgrown most of her newborn clothes and is ending her time in her 0-3 month old clothes too. That makes me a little sad to know that none of my kids will ever be this small again.
