Phoebe just passed her 4 month mark and is growing so quickly it gives her momma chest pains. Much to our surprise, she rolled from her front to back at 14.5 weeks. By 15 weeks she had rolled from her back to front which is now the preferred position for almost everything, particularly sleeping. Piece of mind, out the window. There were a few restless nights for mom and dad while we reassured ourselves that she was strong enough to push up and change positions if she needed to while on her tummy. Consequently, she is taking much better naps! So I'm thinking a tummy sleeper is not so bad after all. Bee is starting to show a slight preference for who she smiles at and who is holding her. When BD was out of town for a few days she kept looking at the door, then back at me, then at the door again, as if to say "where is that guy, and shouldn't he be home by now?" She prefers to put her self to sleep these days and will rarely tolerate us rocking her for very long. Sigh. Of course, that has its perks, too. Bedtime routine is our favorite time of day because daddy is usually home and it's great family bonding where we are all together and focused on her. Bath, massage, jammer-jams (I don't know why), books and songs, nurse, burp, snuggle, binky, down. Then, binky, binky, binky, on repeat until she settles into a spot to doze off. Bee is trying really, really hard to suck her thumb. Mom is trying really, really hard to encourage the binky. It's not certain who is winning just yet.

I do my very best on this blog to make us look perfect and insanely happy in every way. Which, indeed we are. However, you should also know that sometimes we disagree, we don't get everything we want or everything we pray for, I'm not a size 2, and our sink leaks. Amid all the craziness every day brings, we live each knowing that life is fair, it's just not over yet.
