Adeline at 4 Months

Adeline is 4 months old! It is both hard to believe she is so old and hard to believe that just over 4 months ago we had not even met her! Life without her is such a distant memory. Labor isn't a distant memory though, so grandparents can stop hounding me for another grandchild anytime soon!

That said, I think Adeline is the perfect baby! I know, I'm biased. But that's how moms are supposed to be right? Here's a little about Adeline at 4 months...

I'm going by memory for our doctor's appointment yesterday. She's 24.5", which puts her in the 50th percentile for height, and 12 lb 10 oz, which puts her in the 20-something percentile for weight.

Dallas Icemageddon 2013

We had a couple more bouts of power shutting off throughout the weekend. Friday morning we had a nice blanket of ice!

On Sunday we finally reached above freezing just barely. And only for a couple of hours. The parking lot was an ice skating rink though, so church was canceled. They did have a streaming service though online - how convenient is technology? 
Schools were closed Friday and Monday. Temps got up higher Monday and Tuesday in the afternoons, making the ice start to melt. Grocery stores are sold out of produce, and many took all refrigerated and frozen foods off the shelves due to lack of power.
