Micah Claire is so close to crawling. She rocks back and forth on her hands and knee and then finally tries to pick her hands up and move. After the second hand moves her upper body gives out and she does a face dive into the carpert. As much as we are ready for her to crawal, we know once she does there will be no stopping her (scary). Harley is slowly starting to befriend Micah Claire. And, Micah loves nothing more than to grab ahold of those big, long ears and pull real hard. Needless to say, Harley doesn't care for that too much.

Mohawk Baby

Micah Clarie's hair is growing like crazy; but only on the very top of her head. We have tried everything to get it to lay down and nothing works. So, we have just decided to go with the Mohawk look! I personally think she pulls the look off very well. She is now completely sitting up on her own. We are so close to sleeping threw the night. She sleeps from 8:30 to 3:00 am and 3:30 to 6:30 am. Her two bottom teeth are still trying to make their way in. THANK GOD for Orajel!!!!

Check out my Slide Show!

4 month check up

Today was SUPER busy for us. This morning we had family pictures made and this afternoon we had our 4 month check-up. Dr. Slay says Micah Claire is doing great! Of course her check-up involved getting shots. This was Shawn's first time to have to watch her get them. I think he finally understands why I dread them so much.

In the last week Micah Claire has found her feet. And boy oh boy does she love her toes! It is so fun to sit back and watch her go to town on her big toe. She is just on the verge of really crawling and being able to sit up. She can now balance herself in a sitting position for a few seconds! It's so exciting to watch her grow, change and master new skills! I wish she could master the skill of sleeping all night (HAHA).

4 months old

Micah Claire turned 4 months old yesterday! She now weighs 15 # 7 oz and is 25 1/2 inches long. She can now sit up and balance herself for a few seconds and she's still trying to figure out the whole crawling thing.
Even though Micah fell in love with Harley instantly, it's taken Harley a little longer to accept Micah Claire. But, now Harley will lay beside Micah and lick her head. We are so relieved; we really thought we were gonna have to get rid of Harley!
I wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year! I am sure our new year will be full of crawling, talking and walking events!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
