One by one- Princess Lou

I can't believe our princess is 4-months-old! Its her turn for a little update...
First, the question I know you all can't WAIT to have answered...Why "Lou"? I have no idea. Her nickname/blog name came very naturally. She's just been her name-Lou from day one. Not sure why. Just flows.
We went for her 4 month check up last Monday. She was just over 13lbs and 24 1/2 inches with a rather large noggin. She's just a little string bean, long and lean.

She can rollover now, but can only go from back to stomach and it makes her pretty mad that she can't get onto her back. She LOVES her pacifier and her soft blanket luvy. She pulls the luvy up over her head to go to sleep like a real diva (don't worry, I take it off of her face after she is asleep). She also LOVES to be in the sling on my hip and she LOVES to wear bows (ok, maybe that is momma's love, but she doesn't seem to mind). She could really care less about toys for the most part, preferring to just be in the middle of the floor watching her brothers play. She is easily the most laid-back at this age of any of our three children. Sometimes I think she is fake, she is so easy. She is also very alert, observant, and happy. All her brothers have to do is smile in her direction and she breaks into giggles. She giggles at everything (and nothing) all the time. I sure love this baby girl.

Watch her grow...

One month

Two months

Three months

Four months

This "four month" one is my favorite. This is a true Lou smile, the one we see ALL the time, and she is in her classic pose...the flying princess. This four-month-old thinks she is going somewhere. She gets on her belly and arches her back and moves those arms and legs like she can propel herself forward. I have a feeling she will be crawling much earlier than the boys. I also love this photo, though, because she is laying on a quilt made by my Grandmomma, snuggling her favorite luvy and has on a diaper cover given to her by one of my dearest friends.

Ok, and since you asked nicely...just a few more of my favorites.

She rarely gets mad, but when she does she is D-R-A-M-A-T-I-C. The queen of pout.

This was her first pedicure (sort of).

Girl's best friend...a monkey? She gets in her carseat and just starts giggling at this orange friend. So funny!She absolutely LOVED her first tastes of cereal. She made a huge mess with it, mostly because she figured out how to make bubbles with it and because she likes to put her toes in her mouth. Probably should have used the tray on the highchair. Ah well, it was way more fun that way!
...and lastly... those baby blue eyes. How can you resist those gorgeous eyes? Her Daddy says its impossible (and her momma is inclined to agree)!

We're only beginning to get to know this sweet girl and couldn't possibly be any more in love with her! I can't wait to see her personality continue to develop.

She is such a doll! I cannot believe she is 4 months already! Craziness! Hudson also really disliked when he could only roll to his stomach, but not off of it. He was a mover and a shaker since he was born, like her, and he started crawling before he was 6 months old, so you may have your hands even MORE full very soon! ;)
