Milestones and Updates

I am off bed rest now but still have to take it easy. My mom was here this week and will be here again next week since I am not allowed to pick Sarah up, but at least I can hold her in my lap :)
About a week ago Sarah began to sleep through the night unswaddled .. Yeah!

Sarah can roll onto her tummy but still can't get off, but here's a video of "My little inch worm"

Thought I would duplicate one of my favorite pics from when she was younger... This time we got a smile (and what used to be long pants are now fairly short capris :)

More fun in the jumper today. She LOVES it!

I wish we lived in the snow cause she is sooooooo cute!

Sherri is on three days of strict bedrest because we are attempting to get a sibling for Sarah!
We had 11 embryos frozen when we implanted the embryo that became our little girl. Yesterday they thawed out 6 of them and 4 of them were viable for implantation. We implanted one 8 cell, two 6 cell and one 5 cell embryos. Hopefully we will get ONE healthy sibling for Sarah. (Don't tell whoever comes out, but I'm hoping for a boy this time...shhhh.)

Updates about Sarah

Sarah is starting to like tummy time spending most of her play time on her tummy. She can now roll onto her tummy from both her right and left sides but hasn't figured out how to get back onto her back yet. She is "mobile" now (reminds me of an inch worm). She gets her knees under her and her butt in the air and inches ever so slowly forward.. but she IS moving!

Sarah enjoying her new bouncy.. Thanks Tracy, Kelly and David!

More tummy time fun!

Weekend Festivities

This weekend was kinda busy and tiring. It started out Friday night with a retirement party for my mother at a Chinese restaurant in Irvine. Saturday we drove down to the Outlet center in Carlsbad for the afternoon. It was a beautiful day to walk around outside. After shopping, we went to Kelly and Tracy's house for dinner and to visit. Tracy needed to meet Sarah! Sunday we went to Scott's folks house for a dip in the jacuzzi and for the first time Sarah really enjoyed herself. She loved the bubbles and kicked around like crazy. We were going to go to dinner with Alex and Heather and family but unfortunately Heather was sick (hope you get better soon :)) so we had a nice relaxing night in and watched Twilight (which neither of us liked, oh well).

When we were shopping we saw these enormous great danes...
Tracy, David, Me and Sarah. I hope the kids become good friends.
Sarah having fun with daddy in the jacuzzi.

Does Sarah have a twin???

4 Month Checkup

Sarah had her 4 month check up and vaccinations today. She seems to be right on track with her milestones and is growing steadily.
She is 12lbs 13 oz and 25 in long (Still considered long and skinny).
She still is wearing mostly 0-3 month clothes, except for a few brands that she fits 3-6. (There are even some 0-3 that are still to big on her in the waist...I wish I had that problem :)

Too Cool

My sister in law Jan is an optometrist and brought some samples of frames that she has for sale to show the family.. even Sarah got in on the action.

Photo Shoot

When Sherri and Sarah were at Baby's R Us today, they offered her a photo shoot with Sarah. Of course then they tried to sell Sherri a package. They were unsuccessful, but they did provide her with a free sample 8x10 pic:

Happy 4th of July

This year we spent the 4th of July in the valley helping to celebrate Scott's great Aunt Midge's 80th birthday. Pool, food and family made for a fun afternoon.

Today we went to brunch at my folks house to get together with a bunch of family friends that we hadn't seen in a while. As if friends weren't enough my folks made homemade stickybuns and Kalua laced hot cocoa. Here's Sarah looking cute as usual in her matching hat.

After we got home Sarah had some good play time in the gym.

Sarah's 4 Months Old

Sarah turned 4 months old on July 3! She's such a happy baby and she's now bigger than her stuffed animals we've been propping her up against. We go for her check up and vaccinations on Wednesday so I will post more of her statistics once we have them. we are having a busy 4th of July weekend so I will post pics from that tomorrow.
