Hanging out and stuff...

Kelsie is 4-1/2 months now and I can't believe how fast time flies by! She is the sweetest little baby, frequently giving out shy smiles and likes to make lots of chit chat, especially with her Daddy! It is so funny to me that the difference between boys and girls is so apparent this early. Carter's first laughs were loud belly laughs and Kelsie is so sweet and giggly. I love it! She is crazy, though. She's already semi-mobile. This is not supposed to be happening yet...she's figured a way to arch her back and kick her legs that scoots her around pretty good. The downside is it has rubbed a bald spot on the back of her head since she uses it as a 5th limb. She is such a wiggle worm! Once she takes off, I'm scared..seriously. She already arches her back and tries to wriggle away while you're holding her on your lap. I'm not going to be able to contain this girl! But we are also dealing with a possible milk allergy with her...poor thing. I take her to the doctor again tomorrow. Luckily it hasn't been too much of fussiness with it, just A LOT of spitting up and really weird poops...Hanging with her Daddy...such a Daddy's girl already!

Carter is shown here while making his new chart we started a few weeks ago. It has 22 things for him to mark off every day. I laminated it so we could just use a dry erase marker. He chooses something fun to do (So far we've done bowling, playing at Grandma Gill's by himself, and today we went on a hike out at Corn Creek) and we say how many points he has to earn to do it (100 marks or something). Anyway, it has greatly improved many things, such as saying please and thank you, cleaning up after himself, and not having any accidents (we were experiencing problems with this). He has not had an accident since we started this chart! (Except for one day when we hadn't done the chart!) Anyway, Mommy, Daddy and Carter are all loving this new chart!
