It's Been 4 Months!!

Well, usually this blog is all about Rylie, but today I wanted to also mention something that I'm excited about. I've lost 30 lbs since I gave birth to Rylie, which still puts me 4-5 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy size, but I'm really close! I've been kinda stuck at this point for almost a month now, so I'm going to work extra hard these next couple of weeks! Here's a picture showing my success! These were the jeans I bought exactly a week after I gave birth to Rylie & they were tight on me then!

Ok, now on to Rylie. She turned 4 months old today! She acts like she's such a big girl now and knows everything. She was "talking" real sternly to her doctor today on her 4 month check-up, probably telling him that she didn't need the shots. Too bad he said! She did so great though! David and I distracted her with a toy & she didn't start crying until after the 2nd shot! Then she fell asleep in the car & we took her shopping. She woke up in the store & it was like nothing ever happened this morning! Here are her stats for today:
Height: 24 1/4 in long--50 percentile
Weight: 13 lbs 10 oz--75 percentile
Abilities: roll from belly to back (only done a couple times tho), hold her head up real good when laying on belly, stand real good when holding her up, good hand-eye coordination for reaching for toys above her and bringing her thumb to her mouth, responds to sound & turns her head towards it, responds with smile and laughter, sleeps through the night, holds head up perfectly, can sit up all the way with little support, and oh yeah SHE CUT HER FIRST TOOTH!!! It's completely broken through the skin & sticking out there! It finally made its appearance this past weekend, so we've seen some relief from the symptoms of teething.
Well, I guess that's about it for now! Here's some pictures of Rylie from today....
