Brielle is 4 months!!

I am a loser...I completely skipped on her 3 month post. But I am at least doing her 4 month. She is just such a different baby from a couple months ago. She is so fun. We can interact with her and you can just see her coming more and more into her little personality. She is a smiler. You look her direction and she thinks you're looking at her and gets all excited. Same with talking, if you're just talking to someone else in her area, she thinks you're talking to her and she just gives you the biggest smiles. Makes it hard to not talk to her :)

She is becoming quite mobile lately. She's been able to roll over for a couple weeks but its more routine and intentional this past week. She prefers her tummy and is really trying to move with her legs everywhere.

She is still pretty quiet. We keep wondering if she'll start 'talking' soon. She has her moments where she talks but I remember our other kids being so vocal by this point. It cracks us up cause we'll talk to her and she looks like she's going to squeal or make some loud noise and her expression and body just gets so excited and then only a little croak or sound comes out. Pretty funny.

She loves her brother and sisters. And they love her too. She is definitely starting to figure out people and recognize people.

We started sleep training her this week. Its been hard, but she's doing great. She sleeps in till like 6 right now which is beautiful. We are hoping to move her into the girls room this weekend hopefully.

We had our swing break this past month which has just not been fun. Out of all our kids, Brielle has taken to every gadget we have. Which is nice to a point but then when they all seem to break down, it makes it hard because we struggle with going to get a new one just for a few months with knowing she is our last one, or making do. The swing was a necessity unfortunately but my mother-in-law was sweet enough to buy it for us. Its nice and small and doesn't take up as much room. We think the other swing probably got done in with the older kids (especially Brecklynn) getting in it and swinging in it. She's light enough but she's just a little rough. So that's what I think happened. Its been weird having Brielle knowing she's our last though. Where I really wanted the next stage to come with my other kids, I am hoping Brielle will stay little longer and not go on to fast. Well here's some quick pictures I took from yesterday for fun. I didn't edit them and should have, but will try that later. Just wanted to get them on here before I just didn't do it and another month passes.

Can you believe its September...Holy Cow!!
