On a roll...

Elsa is rolling again. Yesterday, she rolled over in her crib once. Today, she rolled over in her crib twice and also rolled over once while playing. She is exactly 4 months and one week. I never did mention that Elsa is starting to hold her own with Sophie. She can actually make Sophie cry!!! Sometimes, when Sophie lays her head on Elsa's chest, Elsa will grab Sophie's bow along with a fistful of hair. Maybe Sophie will stop poking Elsa in the face so much (yea right). Sophie is just so fascinated with face parts. When she wakes up in the morning and also when she lays down for naps or bedtime, she points at all my face parts and wants me to label it. She will point to my eyebrows 5 times in a row...I think that is part of her hair obsession.

This past Tuesday was Haley's last day of school...yippee for summer breaks!!! Sophie and Elsa will get to spend a lot more time with their big sissy. We will have to plan a lot of fun summer activities soon because the summers seem to go by way too quickly.

Yesterday, Sophie, Elsa, Miranda (our cousin) and I went to a park that has all kinds of farm animals. Sophie absolutely loved it. She is so fascinated with pigs. She signs pig at least 20 times a day. Maybe she just likes to point to her nose and snort...who knows what goes through that girl's head! Grandma Debbie took her there a couple weeks ago so I was trying to figure out how much Sophie actually remembered. It seemed she somewhat knew her way around. I would love to take her to a farm where she could actually pet all the animals. At this place, there were signs all over saying the animals bite so I made sure we didn't get too close.

Good luck with the face poking....We still threaten Ryan with "If you poke at the baby's eye one more time..." Of course Julia loves to see her brother coming and she has learned to go into the fast blinking protection mode! Then Sara moves her around like a sack of potatoes and sets her up as her "preschool" student and gives her math and spelling lectures.
I guess all the squeezing, poking and head to head contact those younger ones get make them all the more resilient. Sounds like the girls are starting to develop that "sisters forever friends bond"
Enjoy the summer.
