Ella is 4 months

Ella turned 4 months old today and she is definitely no longer content sitting still. She has become quite the active little baby rolling from tummy to back and back to tummy in order to get herself around the family room. She likes to grab onto things and often ruins my folded laundry piles (assuming one of the other three kids hasn't plowed over them first). She is not crawling, but she loves to be on her tummy now and she is able to sit in the exersaucer and play until she falls asleep (see pic above). Ella loves to talk (much like the rest of her family) and often babbles to us about everything. She's still the most "smiley" of all of our babies and she is super easy as long as she can see one of us and know that we are still close by.
At her well baby check up, the doc said she's perfect. She is 13 pounds 7 ounces, now in the 53rd percentile. Her length is amazing- she is just over 25 inches long (83rd %ile), less than 1 inch from Catherine at 9 months!! Unlike all the other children, she has kept her blue eyes and they don't look like they will change, so we might finally have our blue-eyed baby!

Enjoy the pics...
The mom.

Christa's eyes changed well after a year, but there are blue-eyed adults out there, so maybe :)
