4 Months Old... sort of

Joshua is now 4 1/2 months old... sort of. Being more than two months early, he acts more like a 2-3 month old. Although, at his latest well-check appointment, Joshua weighed in at 12 lbs even and 22 1/4 inches long, which actually puts him on the "normal" curve for a 4 month old (granted only 8th% and 3rd%, but no longer measured as a preemie).

Joshua's cousin, Nathan, who came to visit us this past week with my little sister, Shantel, is a true 3 month old and they act a lot alike... but, they couldn't look any more different. I was so happy to get to meet little Nathan at this age and am very excited for him and Joshy to hang out again soon - and to hang out with my little sis again. ;)

Here are some pictures of Josh and Nathan together.
Just to show us how different they really were, they wouldn't even smile at the same time. :)

Some way cute pics of Josh...

Such a good big sister. And such a receptive little brother. :)

He already looks up to his Daddy. :)

Showing off his muscles. "I know I look good".

Loves to snuggle....

... and loves to sleep.

Just hangin out on Mommy's shoulder.

Brooklyn, the Robot

Brooklyn is a HUGE fan of Curious George, and we have several episodes of the TV show on DVD, one of which is called, Robot Monkey Hullabaloo (or as Brooklyn calls it, George and the Robot). She requests to watch that episode by name EVERY DAY. So, knowing how much she loves that episode, Matt and I thought she would like to dress up like a robot just like George did in that episode. So, we let Brooklyn decorate a box (basically she just colored the inside of the box with her crayons) and cut out some holes for her head and arms. Then we put a silver bowl on her head. Doesn't she make a very cute robot??!

PS. I am very grateful for boxes and that our diapers always come in boxes. :)
