The Princess Proclaims.....
"My mind went on vacation but now it's back!"
"Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a Princess Ballerina Fairy Mermaid Astronaut."
"Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."
"Mom, I love learning about God and singing about God. Everyone needs to learn about God!"
"Mom, when we say I Love You to each other, it makes my heart sing!"
"Dad, I have to tell you something. Did you know when you eat, your ears wiggle?"

She is doing so many things now. She seems to have found her hands and feet finally. She also seems to have noticed her toys as well. She was holding a rattle and shaking it yesterday. Not rocket science, I know, but up until a few days ago, she really had no interest in any toys at all. She will swat at her toys on her play mat and she actually tries to scoot a bit when you turn her over on her back. She absolutely does not like lying down. Whether she is on her changing table, in her bed or in her bouncy seat, she is constantly trying to lift herself into an upright position. I have a feeling she will bypass crawling and go right to walking.
When we go for walks, she is really enthralled with trees and plants....especially when they blow in the wind. I think she may become a horticulturist :o)
She is sleeping through the night...about 7-8 hours average which has been really nice. She is teething so I'm sure that will change, but for now N and I are enjoying having some quiet time in the evening and getting a good nights sleep.
That's all for now. I'm probably getting her pictures taken next week. She will be 4 months old on Friday :o)

She truly is a joy and a blessing. N and I thank God every day for allowing us to bring her home with us.

N had to work today, so we did not have anything special planned. It was a warm but cloudy afternoon so The Princess and I went for a walk on the beach. I took off her socks and let her toes touch the cool sand. I wasn't sure what her reaction would be....and she didn't really have one. I took it as a good sign that she didn't scream....like her big brother J did whenever I tried to put his feet in the sand or the grass.
The Princess is sleeping through the night...for the time being. It seems like she might be starting to teethe, so I anticipate many more sleepless nights, or at least fewer hours of sleep, in the upcoming months. N, as usual, will sleep through everything :o)
That's all for now.
