4 month check-up

We went to Lidia's four month check-up today. Dr. Beetler says she's a growing, happy baby! She definitely proved that at the appointment! Lidia had to get shots again; one that is like a medicine taken orally, and two shots in her left leg. She took the oral shot down like it was candy and she cried for 5 seconds after the two in the leg, but then started laughing! I love her!! The shots hardly fazed her but she immediately fell asleep on the car ride home and has been laying on momma ever since. The doctor gave some good pointers on how to get her back on a good sleep routine since the teething started, so we're going to give that a shot tonight. Looks like no more mommy/baby cuddle time before bed!

I put Lidia in the Jumperoo for the first time and she had a ball! She can't really make herself jump up and down yet but she loves when I swing her back and forth! She laughs the whole time!
Our weekend wasn't filled with much excitement. We stayed home Friday night, made a yummy dinner, watched a movie, and Lidi got to play with her best friend that she hadn't seen in two weeks. For those of you that didn't know, Lidia and I are now living in Urbandale and on Saturday we were able to get more stuff moved into our new place before watching the Iowa game. We then of course watched the Iowa game and loved every minute of it. Even though we didn't win, it was still an amazing game and we are still proud of our Hawks!! Sunday we got up and went to church. Lidia fell asleep through the first part and then woke up in time to start telling stories during Pastor Weaver's sermon! She started squealing and laughing and Ami, Alaina, and I couldn't help but laugh also! She later told me she was just saying, "Amen!' to everything Pastor Weaver was saying and she did not appreciate our "sssshshing!"
