Brooke: 4 months

Height: 23.75 inches
Weight: 11.59 lbs

Brooke has found her voice and has been yelling/growling of late. Strangers often mistake these noises for signs that she is angry or upset but in reality she just likes the sound of it. She is rolling around and even starting to pivot on her tummy! It seems to all be happening so fast! Where does the time go! Some of my favorite moments are when I catch Brin and Brooke playing together and Brin makes Brooke break into full belly laughs. I have yet to catch it on video, they stop when they see the camera. We love our little girl!

Being in a tiny place you learn to be creative with space.  When Brin was a baby I didn't bother with a baby gym but instead hung toys from a broom stick suspended between two chairs; it did the trick. I have tried that twice with Brooke. The first time was fine, Brin was excited to lay down by her baby sister and help her play with her toys hog all of the toys. The second time ended as Brin tried to take the broom stick from between the chairs, causing one end to fall millimeters from Brooke's face. So that is how Brooke's new play station ended up under Brin's highchair. No one seems to be complaining...
