So our little girl is growing! It's hard to believe she's already 4 months old. I took her in today for her checkup and shots and got her new stats. She's 24" now (49th percentile), has a head measuring 16.5" (75th percentile), and weights in at 15 lbs. 3 oz (81st percentile...yes that's right...81 and we love every little roll!) She's healthy and happy and we have so much to be thankful for. Here is a picture of her from today.

And a few other shots for your amusement:

Katie's scalp was dry so after some great advice from my mom I decided to put a little bit of baby oil on it. It definately did the trick, but I took mom's advice to the next level and decided that if a little was good...more was better! I slathered it on her little head and here she is after two attempts to wash it out.

After 5 attempts. Looking happy, but still oily. :) I finally gave up and we got it out the next day. I still claim it as a victory becuase her scalp is looking lovely! Next time..less oil for sure.

On another note, I was so proud of Jack today. He got a surprise booster shot at the doctor's during our visit and he was a champ. He went before Kaitlyn and I told him how he could show her how to be brave. He totally did. Cried for 30 seconds and then said, "I'm brave!" One more Jack story since I have a captive audience. I was busy on the computer the other morning and heard Jack playing in the kitchen. I went to check on him and found this:

What a little organizer I have! Now if he could just get to my closet.

We had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends, and are so thankful we got to celebrate this special day with those we love. Thompsons, we sure missed you, but can't wait for our belated Easter celebration with you. Get well soon! We didn't get many pictures, but here are a few. :)
