We've got a roller!

We have not had too many adventures recently, but have enjoyed hanging out together at home.  It was a bit of a rainy weekend here in Massachusetts, so it was nice to have a chance to relax and catch up on our rest!  Alice has been growing and changing so much recently.  It is hard to believe that she is already almost 4 months old!

Here are some of her recent fun experiences.  First, here she is seconds after rolling over by herself for the first time (9/11/09):

She was so proud of herself!

Alice has been really enjoying spending time on her tummy, which is a change.  Until recently, she was not so excited about it and preferred lying on her back.  Now, we usually get big smiles when she is on her tummy, so it was inevitable that the roll-over would be coming soon!:

We recently broke out the "jumparoo" that we received as a shower gift.  Alice is just too short for it, so we ended up putting it back away for a few weeks, but she did enjoy giving it a test run:

When the kids across the country watched President Obama's message to them on the first day of school, Alice and Nonee were not left out.  They watched the speech as well, and Alice really seemed to enjoy it!:

Alice is also enjoying sitting in her Bumbo chair:

We have been making an effort to eat at the table with her in the Bumbo chair so that she can watch us.  She is very interested, as you can see.  We were told at her last doctor's appointment that she may get the ok to start eating some food at her 4 month appointment, which is this Wednesday.  She will be so happy!

Since she has been so constantly drooly, we decided to try and move her to her highchair while we eat at the table.  Here she is trying it out for the first time.  She isn't 100% convinced yet that the highchair is fun, but we imagine that will change when she can eat food in it!:

Here is a link to the rest of the recent photos.  Have a great day! 


  1. Happy 4 month birthday sweetie. You are getting so big and so pretty and I miss you very much. Thank mom and dad for me for doing such a great job with pictures and keeping us all up to date on all the amazing things you do already.

  2. Watching Obama at 4 months old, and with such interest?! I totally LOVE Alice!
