Kinsley at four months old is so much fun. She’s so attentive and loves to see what’s going on. She prefers facing forward, whether you’re carrying her, in the back pack or in the stroller. She’d rather face forward in the car too, but we all know that isn’t going to happen for awhile yet. Speaking of car seats… we went to the doctor on Wednesday and our little one is not so little! She’s 13 pounds 7.5 ounces and 24 inches long! (42nd percentile for height and 48th percentile for weight. I include these because I was never on “the charts” growing up and Myla was in the negative 3rd percentile at her last check. Amazing!) Kinsley’s almost out of the car seat we have! She’s a happy girl most of the time and wakes up talking and chattering in her crib in the mornings. She is a talker and I told her today that no one will say “she doesn’t have to talk, her sister does it all for her” because, let me tell you, this girl makes sure her opinion is known! The doctor said she looks great.
Myla has adjusted well to being a big sister and only has a few moments when she really wants you to pay attention to her. She’s amazing in her own right and has started to really want to do crafts and cut and paste – more than your usual coloring. I’ve got out my fun scissors and she will sit and cut construction paper with them for 10 minutes. I think we’re going to put her in a preschool program this fall so that she can learn even more fun things. She loves to do just that and I think it will be good for her. But until then, we’re going to bug her daddy to get that swimming pool up. July is almost here and we want to play!
