4 months!

You can see here how she loves taking her monthly stickers off? This was in a crumpled up ball in a matter of 2 minutes. 

Mira is 4 months (tomorrow)! I can't express how much I'm loving having the summer off with her. I am spoiled lucky!

We just had an awesome weekend at my parents' lake cabin filled with boat rides, jetskiing, bonfires, grilling, drinks, and tanning. I get to do it all over again starting today, but Adam has to work the entire weekend :(..... I often fantasize about how awesome it'd be if we could both just not work. Fantasizing is obviously as far as that idea goes.

Height/Weight: Still TBD (her 4 month appt is on July 9)
Feeding: Exclusively breastfed. She has about 7-8 feedings per day and takes about 4 oz. per feeding.
Sleeping: We put her to bed at about 8 and then usually between midnight and 1 am she will be up for another feeding, and then again between 4-5 am. Some nights are better than others. On a good night she will go from about midnight until 7 am. I don't think she's ever gone more than 7 hours.
Clothes size: 0-3 months (yet getting a little more snug), 3 months, and 3-6 months. 3-6 months stuff still has plenty of growing room.
Development: Grabbing things, she can now reach for objects, even pulls the covers up when she's cold! We only put her blanket on her legs at night but noticed the fan made her cold because she would pull the blanket perfectly up to her neck. Babbles, laughs, smiles huge! She also knows her name now, and pretty soon will be sitting on her own.
Me: Like I said, I'm happy as a clam to have the summer off with Mira. Trying to keep up working out at least twice a week, reading almost a book a week (currently reading 2: one for pleasure and one more for my career), actively seeking a new job (had an interview last week), and just got done throwing a surprise birthday party for my parents with the help of my sister. 
Adam: Still working 50 + hours a week between his two jobs plus lifting 4 times a week. I think I've also got him on the book train; he just finished reading world war Z.

Mira loves:
Bathtime (every single part surrounding it, including lying down getting undressed before the bath and getting wrapped up in her towel afterwards)
Slightly screaming (video to follow)
Hearing herself make noises
Looking in the mirror
Grabbing things
Holding mama or daddy's iphone for 5 seconds and then dropping it
Being outside
Boat rides
Putting things in her mouth
Being in her carseat
Trying to "help" unbuckle her carseat, take her diaper off, take her nuk out, or any other "helpful" thing that involves pretty much taking something off
Watching tv
Watching us eat
Watching us have conversation

Mira doesn't like:
Having her picture taken
Getting her hand stuck between the crib bars
Sleeping on her back
Being hungry for more than 2 seconds

Happy 4th everyone!
