Four Months Old and Growing Strong

Natalie is now Four Months Old and is such a sweet and pleasant baby!
We went to the Dr. today and got weighed and measured, she is:

13lbs 10 oz
24 1/2 inches
she was 50th percentile on everything

So, here are the pictures- she wasn't giving me much to work with so we did the best we could
 Natalie sleeps from 9:30 pm until 5:30 am and then eats and goes straight back to sleep until 8:30 or 9 (most days)
She is kind of a cat napper which is sometimes tricky when I'm trying to get things done in the day, but for a good night's sleep it is worth the trade off.
 She is laughing lots and LOVES to suck her thumb(s)
She is a secretive roller.  Occasionally she will roll from her tummy to her back after her nap, but no one has actually ever seen it happen.  She can almost roll from back to front.  She loves her brothers- and smiles when she sees them.
 This little friend is Mary Jo Reynolds, she was born a month after Natalie was.
 However, there is a size difference!  I guess my friend Christie produces a special type of milk, and she can grow her babies BIG!!  
I've been so proud of Natalie's "chunkiness" but she pales in comparison to Mary Jo.
Oh well, they can still be BFF's.

I'm surprised she's only in the 50th percentile for her height...she looks so long! Love the new more!

Those pics of Natalie and Mary Jo turned out so cute! and yes-christie does grow the chubbiest babies I've ever seen--both of them are darling! (and you can still be proud of natalie's chunky monkey thighs!-even her belly is nice and rotund ;0, too bad none of that looks quite as cute on me)
