4 months old

Time sure does fly when you're having fun...and not getting much sleep!  Sometimes the days all seem to blur together!  Adley turned 4 months old back on Oct. 21st.  She is still quite tall for her the 95th percentile, but she went down from the 75th to 70th percentile in weight this month.  So I guess she's getting longer & leaner!  She weighed 14.5 lbs at her 4 month check-up.  The biggest change over the last 2 months is that she cut 2 teeth the week before she turned 4 months!  Those little teeth are so stinkin' cute, and I was quite surprised that they came in so early! I still haven't been able to get a good picture of them because she is usually sucking on her fingers these days!

Baby girl has been busy this month...not only did she cut two teeth, but she has also learned to roll over (and roll, and roll, and roll...) & she has become intrigued with her toes!  She loves to lay on the floor and roll until she bumps into something.  Then she gets mad & cries because she can't roll anymore...she hasn't quite figured out that she can just roll back the other way!   

We had fun celebrating her first Halloween, and I enjoyed getting to make her first costume!  We went to a neighborhood Halloween party (where she won the costume contest!) & to Trunk or Treat.  She was a super cute little lamb, although her ears kind of stuck up so some thought she was a bunny.  Either way, she was precious! 
This month has also been busy for Matt and me, as we considered a new job opportunity for Matt.  He was offered a job as in-house Trade Counsel at Weatherford International in Houston.  We had a tough decision to make because we didn't want to leave the Dallas area, especially our friends, the closeness to family, and our house.  But, ultimately, we decided that making the move to Houston was in the best interest of our family & Matt's career.  So, once again, we will be packing up & setting out on a new adventure in Houston!  Matt will start the new job in January, so we are starting preparations & hoping that we'll be able to sell our house with the holidays quickly approaching!  That's about all we have to report, so I'll leave you with a few more pictures of Adley (since I know that's really the reason people visit our blog anyway!)  Love to all!

She's just too cute and I can't wait to spend some time with her. I cannot believe you guys are moving again! I thought Chris and I were the only ones to move so often! Tell Matt I said congratulations on the new job and I look forward to hearing all the details this weekend. Love you guys.
