There is a First for Everything

Since Lenna has turned 4 months old she has had MANY firsts.  We are currently relaxing on vacation in Sedona, AZ.  

Lenna did great on her first flight yesterday.  While we went through security we had some struggles with our stroller going through the scanner and a boarding pass confusion for Tony.  Then she pretty much slept on my lap for the first hour of the flight.  After a diaper change, it was back to sleep with Daddy.  We heard a little whimper from her when the plane started to lose altitude for landing but other than that no fussing.  We arrived in Sedona yesterday afternoon.  After getting aquainted with Grandma Jenny and Grandpa Frank and we called it a day yesterday.  
Today Lenna got to enjoy some time with Grandpa and Grandma this morning while Daddy and I hiked Soldier's Pass (man I'm outta shape, I was huffing and puffing)

This afternoon Lenna got to enjoy her first day at a swimming pool!  Did we have a good time.

Here are some other firsts from this month so far: 
First pair of sunglasses (her future is so bright!):

She got her first lawn mower ride:
She attended her first horse show this month and was able to watch her Mommy compete:

Happy 4 Month Old Birthday Little Lenna!

Lenna is 4 months old today!

Mommy had some stomach bug today and was sick :( but luckily for Lenna her Uncle Chumly and Aunt Kelli took her and spoiled her until she had to go to her 4 month well baby appointment. This meant shots. I made Daddy go with and hold her arms this time. It was a cake walk for him because Lenna screamed for less than a minute and was smiling again. Even now that she's home she's happy and playing with Daddy on the floor as I type this.

Here are the stats on Lenna now:
Height: 24 1/4" --> 52nd percentile
Weight: 14 lbs 1 oz --> 62nd percentile
Head Circumference: 42 cm --> 79th percentile

Lenna had 2 shots in her left leg and 1 in the right and 1 oral vaccination. She got pretty band-aids as a present though:

So no one warned me that babies start moving around this fast in life. Lenna is rolling back to front and front to back. Dr. Sunberg commented that her legs were "really strong" when she checked her hips today. Dr. Sunberg also gave the go ahead to start rice cereal and fruits and veggies. Doreen, Lenna's daycare provider said we are going to have it in for us, Lenna will want to crawl soon. She puts Lenna on the floor at daycare to play on her gym and she is all of a sudden across the room. I guess all that tummy time pays off. Look at how she holds herself up!
Lenna also can put her nuk in her mouth herself and take it out if you hand it to her. She is quite the talker and has a nice loud tone of voice like Mommy and Daddy. She also stands with support good and sits up almost unsupported. She doesn't like to be held like a baby and hasn't since she was born -- unless she is feeling tired or after shots so we enjoy those moments.

Happy Mother's Day!

It was my first Mother's Day as a Mommy and it was a great day. The weather was good. We went to brunch in the morning and then in the afternoon I took a break and got out on horseback. Then Lenna and I had a nice nap in the afternoon and had a laid back evening.

Here were some cards I made for the Mommies in our lives:

Happy Birthday Grandpa and Mommy!

Last Friday was Grandpa Lenny's 65th birthday and we celebrated by taking a picture of Lenna and Grandpa:

On Saturday it was Mommy's birthday. The big 3-0. I went to a horse clinic and when I returned Lenna was all dressed up like this looking like a sweetie pie.

I just had to post such an adorable picture of Lenna with Daddy today:
