As the time flies by

Another week goes by as we hit the 4 month, mark can you believe it?

It seems as though the roll over Grace performed was a one show only event, as she has not done it again. She is really close to rolling from her back to her tummy, but for now she likes rolling on her side to look around.

Silas on the other hand is content with just laying there playing on his back, but he is getting close to rolling. I think he prefers to just have me carry him around instead of going anywhere himself, and I see this in the future also. Grace is very independant so I have a feeling she will do everything first, as big brother Silas watches from my arms.

No big issues this week but it seems there are never enough burp rags within reach when you need them... Silas burps up a little each time on my shirt.

They both really seem to become more aware of each other every day as if it's something new to them. Grace doesn't like to look at Si directly for some reason only she knows. She will tuck her head in your chest, sometimes make a sad face, and turn away. But Silas really loves to look at little sis and stares at her wide eyed. Diaper time has gone from no one liking to be changed, to laughing each time, needless to say there are a lot of laughs each day.

Clothes that were once baggy are now getting smaller and diaper supplies are dwindling. We sometimes have to change the trash after every diaper to make sure the house stays fresh. We keep keeping on, waiting for the day when I'll be wishing they only just laid there. I feel bad that the dogs and cat have no idea what is coming. I see a lot of tail pulling in their future.

I have mastered the chocolate cupcake so now I'll move on to another flavor and keep on improving my frosting skills as my new past time of baking continues. (Wow did I really just say that? What has become of me!? )
