4 months

How did that happen already? I can't believe Emma and Carter turned 4 months old yesterday! They are so funny and have quite different personalities.

Emma is more stone face, will smirk here and there, is talkative (but not nearly as loud or as vocal as Carter), is content hanging by herself. Emma likes to take little cat naps during the day, but most nights goes to bed @730 and sleeps until 8am, maybe waking for 1 bottle if any. Emma is still smaller then Carter and still fits into most of her newborn clothes, but is slowly starting to fit into her 0-3 month clothes. Both babies are now wearing size 2 diapers. Emma loves to eat her hands and is still a huge puke machine! (we go to the GI specialist this Thursday!) Emma carries most of her weight in her chubby cheeks, while Carter packs his in his belly! Emma's favorite activity is to stare at her hands. She is often found like this:
it cracks me up!

Carter on the other hand is such a funny boy, he loves to laugh, and boy does he love to hear himself talk!! He likes to "talk" as loud as possible! If he is awake and not hungry he will just laugh and talk the whole time. It does not matter what you say or do, he thinks it's funny! However if Carter is hungry or tired look out...he is a screamer! Carter does sleep okay at night, he usually wakes a few more times then Emma does, but he's still not even a bad sleeper. Carter likes to take long naps during the day, unlike Emma. Carter is also a puke machine, but not nearly as bad as Emma. Carter has outgrown almost all of his newborn clothes and mainly wears 0-3 month clothes.

Emma is okay putting herself to sleep, but Carter on the other hand needs to either be feed to sleep or be rocked to sleep. If he is rocked to sleep I play the game....rock until he falls asleep, put him down, he wakes up, I re-rock him, put him down....and so forth, it usually takes a few times around the cycle for it to work.

I was trying to take their 4 month pictures today and Emma kept looking off, like this:
What was she staring at.....
Grace and her naked baby of course!

I can't believe how much they have grown in the past 4 months!
