4 months

weight: 15lb 12oz
length: 26 1/2 inches
translation: the weight of a six month old and the height of a seven month old. she is still laughing and smiling all the time. talking comes and goes, so i am guessing she is more like me. i have my days were i talk nonstop mixed in with quieter days. her dad is all the time, nonstop. this is just a guess though. she is still not rolling over. if she is on her side and i give her the smallest little push she can do it, but she almost immediately starts to cry when she realizes that she is now on her belly. she does like the bumbo. she now perfers to sit in her bumbo and play with toys in the morning versus her playmate. and really she doesnt need any toys because she has discovered the dogs. she very much likes to watch them and invite them over to lick her. that is probably her most favorite thing to do at the moment. she did great with her shots the second time around. much better then the first. she really is getting big fast!

i have had elements for a while but havent done anything with it really. so confusing, i didnt know where to start. so my very talented and awesome friend came to the rescue. it doesnt look like much, but let me tell you, i am uberproud of these edited photos. so here are some before and afters

amy warned me not to overuse the "burned edge" affect, but i think i could use this on almost every photo. i love it

the light, its blinding!

still not perfect, but getting there

mmmm, its not christmas without lefsa!!

notice the text on this one...

the rolling of the lefsa

the end to a perfect day after a lot of baking

i love a good black and white photo. notice the burned edge thing again :)

i hope to have some better edited ones from our trip. i am so excited to finally be able to do fun things with my photos!
