Mila Rose - Four Months

Mila Rose, you are 4 months old!

You weigh 15lbs 6ozs (75-90%) and are 24 3/4" (75%) long.  You are wearing 3-6M from Gap and 3M and some 6M from Carters (apparently those are the only places we shop).  You wear size 2 diapers.

You are learning to reach and grab for things.  It is incredible seeing your daily progress in learning more and more about the world around you.

You went on your first plane ride to Minnesota and did a great job flying.  It almost seemed like you were already a frequent flyer.  You had a snack (breast milk), played a little and then took a nice snooze!  I wish I could fly your style, especially on long flights!

It is interesting, flying with you.  We meet many more people, since you have such a cute smile, they stop us and visit about you.  Also, since we have you (a baby) we get to go to the front of many lines.

Flying was the first time I noticed how much you love being in public.  You seem to be very social and love to look around and take it all in.  You are fussy at home sometimes, but almost never out of the house. 

You were baptized on Sunday, June 14th, 2015 at Faith Point Lutheran Church in New Prague, MN by Pastor Steve Trewartha.  Your Godparents are your Auntie Leah and Uncle Alex.  You met a lot of your family at your baptism party at Grandma Menden's house.  Your mom, Auntie Leah, Grandma Menden and family did a great job throwing a wonderful celebration for you.  It was a nice sunny day and a lot of the family went swimming.

During the Church service at your baptism you were a perfect little girl and listened to the message and took a quick nap before your time at the alter.  You were a sweet angle as Pastor Steve baptized you, no crying just smiling :-) 

Mommy and daddy left you for the first time.  You got to stay at your Grandma Menden's house for a couple days without mommy and daddy.  Auntie Leah and Grandma Menden each spent time watching you as your parents went to a special Brooks & Dunn (& Reba) comeback concert in Las Vegas.  We had fun, but really missed you.  Actually, our first night away from you, we spent on the floor in the MSP airport since Spirit Airlines canceled our flight to Las Vegas.  That was a bummer, but we were able to find a lactation room for your mom to pump breast milk at about 3am.  So you can say the first night away from you was NOT a restful night, but made for a memorable moment.

Happy 4 months!
