FINALLY an Update

OK OK~ I'm sorry to be so behind in updating!!! I had every intention to post a 4 month update but the time has gotten away from me! (I do have the valid excuse~ "I was moving across the country" <> )

Mary Katherine is now 4.5months and getting so big! The scale here @ home says 14lbs! (She has her 4 month check up tomorrow so we should know for sure then , it's just a few weeks delayed due to the "move")
The girls loves to chew/eat her hands/fingers/thumb. She loves to put your hand and fingers in her mouth or try to suck on your arm. She found her feet in the last week and half and now loves to suck on those. Any time she is laying down her legs come up to her hands! Mary Katherine is preparing for her career in the circus as "gumby baby" and her show stopping act is getting her foot into her mouth and babbling all in a matter of seconds!
Mary Katherine is a chatty girl. But only when the mood strikes her! She can be babbling on and as soon as a grandmother is called or skyped so they can hear she stops!
She is still loving bathtime! Lays there and kicks and splashes! She can't sit up by herself yet but as soon as she can that bathtub is going to be her favorite place I'm sure.
Mary Katherine still loves standing up but she now no longer stands still. She is a squimer. Her head is constantly twirling around checking everything out!
Actual big update: For those of you that don't know~we moved out to Colorado for our first duty assignmet.
Mary Katherine did GREAT with the 3 day trip out here. First day she slept ALOT, second day is slept alittle less, and then the third day she slept for like 2 hours out of 9!
She has adjusted just fine (not that she really knows we are now living on the other side of the country)! She does miss the attention she received while living @ Grammy and Grampy's. Since I have been unpacking boxes and organizing the house and household duties she can go for a good 30 minutes (in the am) of playing in her jumper seat and then she wants attention. Now in the afternoon it's only about 10minutes that she last until she is crying for some attention and as soon as I am in sight and acknowledge her, she is all smiles!
Ok I will post more updates more often and post pics as well!
She has definitely adjusted to having her Daddy back! It's like he wasn't even gone! She loves the attention and the fun she has with him. He makes her laugh and smile all the time!
