4 Months Already?

I can't believe that Kaelyn is 4 months old today. She is getting such a fun personality! She loves all of her siblings so much, her face just lights up when they come and talk to her or play with her. She can sit and stare at Kendall for hours, he loves to make her laugh. I think that Cameron has made her smile the biggest so far. In fact, in this picture she is looking at Cameron.

At 4 months Kaelyn is 13lbs 8.6oz. and is 25in. Next to Shelby, Kaelyn is my smallest baby at this age. She is only in the 52% range for her weight, my boy's were always in the 90-95% range. I like having a little petite baby.

Kaelyn is a great napper, she takes 2 long naps and then cat naps in her swing or bouncer in the early evening. She had been sleeping through the night at 3 mo. but recently started waking up in the middle of the night, it is driving me crazy. I don't do well with interrupted sleep!

Kendall loves to stick his tongue out at Kaelyn to see if she will stick her tongue out also. Poor thing can't! She was born with a short frenulum, or in other words, she is tongue tied! She is having it clipped as soon as Kaiser gets back to me to schedule it. In the mean time Kendall will keep trying to get her to stick it out.

We have totally enjoyed these first 4 months with Kaelyn and look forward to watching her grow! Although, I do wish that she wouldn't grow so fast! I love to sit and cuddle with her, she is my last baby and I want to hold on to her a little bit longer. They grow way to fast for me.

I Hope They Call Me On A Mission!!

It's official! Samuel's call came yesterday and he was so excited! He had been waiting for the mail every day since getting home from BYU! He waited until we were all together to open it.

Before watching the video be sure to turn off the music below.
If you can't hear the video, because of the crying baby, he has been called to the Paraguay Asuncion Mission. He enters the MTC on July 22. This is the same mission that his cousin returned from last year.

We are so happy and excited for him! I am also happy that he will be speaking Spanish. Where has the time gone? These next couple of months are going to fly by getting him ready to go and then the next two years will probably feel like forever for me. I am so proud of Samuel and the Man that he has become!
