4 months

Haylee is 4 months old today! We went to the doctor this morning and she weighs 18 lbs 13 oz already and is 26 1/2 " long. She's definitely a healthy and growing baby! Last week we took her to the zoo and she really enjoyed looking around at everything.

She even knew the difference between the monkeys and the zebras and actually said "elephant". Ok so I'm kidding, but she definitely took in all the new sights. While we were in Houston we went to the zoo there, but she was much younger and successfully slept the entire time.

We gave her rice cereal for the first time yesterday just to see how she would react. I don't think she really knew what to do with it, but she had fun trying something new! I smelled it and it definitely doesn't smell tasty! She got a weird look on her face during each bite (almost like the bitter beer face), but she smiled after each swallow as well. She's probably thinking "geez mom...can't we just start with bananas instead of this sandy stuff??".
Oh yeah, we were having problems with our computer and a friend was working on it for about a week. I don't have an excuse for not blogging the other week. Therefore I only take half responsibility so it's no big deal, right?!? :)

I win the award...

for worst blogger! Sorry it's been a while. I can't even blame it on having a baby because Haylee is so good! We have been really busy this summer though. We try to stay home during the day when Brad's at work because it's so darn HOT outside! Most days we end up having something to do, but Haylee just goes along. She's very easy going and flexible like us. It's great! We went to Minnesota a couple weeks ago to visit family. It was a very short trip, but we had a great time! Haylee did awesome! On the plane she either slept or smiled at everyone. Brad would hold her up and she would flash the biggest smile at the people behind us. I was so proud of her. It was really good to see everyone. Hopefully the trip will be longer next time though! Here she is at a park in Minnesota. (Not sure if that's a baby gang sign or what?!?)
My parents came to visit one day and brought her a cute ladybug balloon. Much to our surprise, she loves playing with it! Here's a video we took. (Ignore me talking in the background. I was on the phone while Brad was recording this.)

Here's the smartest baby ever reading her book.
Last, but DEFINITELY not least, Haylee got her first Texas Rangers hat. It's so cute and we even had her name put on it. We got it done at Lids in the mall. It's a little big on her now but I'm sure it will fit better soon!

Hope everyone is having a good summer! I promise to TRY and blog a little more often.
