4 Months Old

Height: We will find out this stat next week at my 4 month check up.
Weight: Stay tuned for this stat as well!
Sleeping Patterns: For most of the month I took a morning nap and an afternoon nap when Mama picked me up after work. I would fall asleep on the car seat. However, the past few days I have been staying awake more and more. A bonus because of that....I've had a few 8:00 to 5:00 night time stretches!
Eating Habits: I always have a morning feeding before Mama leaves for work, I'm getting 3 bottles during the day (always a 6 oz. bottle at noon) and sometimes I get an extra 6 oz. bottle. Then I get a little "snack" in the evening and one more good feeding before bed time.
New Foods I Liked: Still just Mama's milk. I have been eyeing up food though! We went to dinner last Friday and my hand ended up in Daddy's honey mustard twice! Mama is going to ask about starting me on rice cereal soon.
New Discoveries I made: I'm a pro at rolling over now! I can even roll both ways but I normally just roll from my back to my stomach. My hands are still very fascinating. I've also discovered sleeping in my crib at night time now.
My Accomplishments: My long stretches of sleep at night time and my rolling over skills. I've also started to giggle and find my voice. Mama can find my tickle spot (on my neck) and make me giggle.
Places I went: We took our first Carowinds trip and the biggest trip was that I went on an airplane with Mama and Ayla to fly to Pittsburgh to visit Oma and Opa.
Special Memories: I went on my first ride at Carowinds (the helicopters) and I went on my first airplane ride! 

Here are pictures from our photo shoot today....

Busy and Hot Weekend!

I love the weekends and spending time with Mama and Daddy. We had a pretty busy one this weekend! On Friday we went to Duckworth's for dinner and then stopped at Birkdale Village. We got some frozen yogurt to share. Yummy!
Mama and Hayden
Yesterday we went to Statesville to visit Aubrey and her Mommy and Daddy. It was a beautiful day and we spent lots of time outside. Andy even got the swing out for Hayden and he enjoyed swinging in their yard. Mama bought some Easter Eggs at Walmart so that we could have a little egg hunt together.
Hayden loved the swing.
We squirted the daddies with water guns.

We had so much fun finding eggs.

Aubrey and I took a picture with Hayden.
Water balloon fun!
We had a tea party outside.

Hayden hung out with the daddies for a little bit.

Going for a walk around the neighborhood.

Tummy time with Hayden.

Hayden fell asleep and Mama put him on Aubrey's bed.
She went in and tucked him in.
Today we went to the White Water Center. This weekend they had a lot of activities going on. One of the activities was a rubber ducky race where all proceeds go to an organization called Kindermourn. It helps family members who have lost a loved one, especially children. We wanted to buy a ducky for the race but they were all sold out already. It was so hot that we ended up leaving early and not seeing the race. Hopefully next year!
Enjoying the sunshine.
Happy Hayden
Hayden and a big Ducky.

I got some new sunglasses and a
beach ball.
We enjoyed the rest of the day at home. Some inside and some outside.
Tummy time.
"Hey there!"
I insisted on wearing my pink dress
from Oma and Opa.
Mama made me change though when I
played in the water table.
Hayden snoozed in the shade.
Oh yeah, and check out Hayden hanging out in the Bumbo...he's getting so big!
"Hi, Mama!"
"This is so much fun!"
What a fun weekend! 7 more weeks of school and then Mama and Daddy get to stay home with us!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter from the 4 Harbins this year! It's crazy to think that last Easter I didn't even exist yet! Mama, Daddy and Ayla are so glad that I am here. We enjoyed a nice, quiet Easter. I've had a fever since Friday so we just took it easy. We went to BeBe and Pappy's for brunch this morning and took some family pictures. Mama and Daddy seem to think the fever is from a slight cold/teething. I know it sounds crazy to be teething at 3 and 1/2 months but I've been drooling so much and have my fingers in my mouth all of the time. Lucky for me, the Easter Bunny brought me some more teething toys. Here are pictures from today....
Our Easter Baskets. The bunny left tracks!

Ayla was excited to check everything out.

She got Minnie walkie talkies! 
Mama helped me with my Easter basket.

That's one of my new teething pacifiers.

Ayla enjoyed her chocolate covered pretzel.

The Easter bunny left treats at
BeBe and Pappy's house too!

Here is my Easter basket from BeBe and Pappy's house.

Hee Hee! I'm not too sure about getting my picture taken.

A picture with Mama.

Family picture.

We also had to take one with Nana.

Pappy and me.

Ayla enjoyed her German chocolate from Uncle Guenni,
Aunt Michelle, Kai and Nora.

Ayla also got this awesome bunny
shirt from Uncle Guenni, Aunt Michelle,
Kai and Nora. I'll try my shirt on soon.

Ayla helped me use my new teething toy.
We had a great Easter and missed all of our family far away!
Tomorrow the "real world" begins again and Spring Break is over. Sniff Sniff! Luckily there are only 7 more weeks until summer vacation!
