Harper is 4 months old

Our sweet Harper Grace is 4 months old. I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine today and we both giggled that I can now say "When Harper was little" (well, littler at me she is still so small).
What are you up to at 4 months old Miss Harper:
-size 1 diaper
-size 3 month clothes
-eating 5oz every 3 hours during the day and going much longer at night. We had a full week of you sleeping 12 hour stretches at night with only needing your paci a couple times; however, this past week you have needed to eat at least once in the middle of the night and you've been so restless at night. Possible growth spurt?
-smiling, smiling, smiling. You have the most contagious grin and you are not shy or selfish with these gummy grins. You love when people talk to you and you coo and smile the biggest smile.
-you still absolutely HATE riding in the car. My mercy you scream like someone is hurting you while we are in the car. You are fine in your car seat up until I start moving. Ugg sweet girl, I hope you out grow this phase really soon. Mommy's nerves are shot. :)
-you rarely cry unless we are in the car or I wait too long to feed you. You wake up grunting and moaning a little bit, but not really crying.
-you only want your pacifier if you are having a hard time sleeping, other than that you refuse to take it.
-you adore your big brothers and smile at them frequently
-you startle easily with sudden loud noises. Your "scared" cry is the saddest thing I have ever heard. Breaks my heart little one.
-You are getting stronger and stronger everyday. You can lift your head really well while doing tummy time and if you are on your side you try so hard to roll over.

Oh sweet baby girl. I cannot believe four months have passed since you entered this world and blessed our family. We love you so much and cannot wait to watch more of your sweet little personality come to surface!! You are certainly loved little one! We cherish and adore you!
Love how sweetly she is looking at grandpa voda

Eeek. Ruffles!

Silly smiles while helping her brothers decorate cupcakes

This picture just makes me laugh. The boys were decorating cupcakes and it looks like she eagerly wants one herself!
