Sadie Mai: The 4 month Stats...

Well, as they say, time flies, and our little girl is growing so fast!  She had her well child check up today, and in true Connolly (and Prosser) style, she is off the charts in both height and weight.  27 inches long, and weighing in at a whopping 20 lbs (my left bicept can attest to that) is Sadie Mai the four-month old!
Four months is such a fun age.  Sadie has expanded her repertoire of sounds from beyond the sweet little "aah-goos" to a wide range of shrieks, ooohhhs, and cackles.  She is better at sitting up and can actually balance in a sitting position for longer periods of time now before the inevitable tip over occurs.  She can dazzle a crowd with her dimpled smiles and winsome laughs.  Her big blue eyes check out the world around her with intensity and wonder. Speaking of intensity, Sadie also screams with intensity whenever mom and dad try to sneak away  for more than a few minutes at a time.  The screaming immediately subsides when either of us return. Go figure.

Another awesome skill that Sadie is developing is her reach and grab reflex.  So far she has mostly stuck to toys, keys, and the occasional fistful of mom's hair, but she did successfully swipe a few finger-fulls of grandma Sophie's gravy off of her dad's plate the other day. And it went straight into her mouth.  The last thing we should be feeding our 20 lb four-month old is gravy, but hey--cant blame a girl for trying right?

It is a true joy and delight to watch our little girl growing and getting stronger every day.  We are so happy and blessed to have her in our lives.
