Probably the best baby in the universe

This Sunday our baby girl turns 4 months old. I can barely remember a time when she wasn't a part of our family, yet the idea of her already celebrating another milestone astounds me. This morning she had her 4 month check up and I'm happy to report that Hayley is growing and developing perfectly (not to mention rapidly!). She now weighs 16.5 lbs and is 25" long. She's over 2 feet tall, can you believe it??
Look at the difference 4 months makes!

This past month Hayley has been very social. She's had a few play dates with her new friends Logan and Leila, as well as her old friend Caiden.

Hayley also got to visit with Grandpa David and Grandma Tina. They couldn't believe how much she'd grown since they'd seen her last!

One thing I hope to never forget about this month is that this is the month that Hayley really started giggling. Geoff and I agree, there is nothing we wouldn't do to hear that beautiful sound. We were lucky enough to get her first real giggles on video, which you've all seen below, but since then there have been many random events that have elicited a chorus of giggles from our little one. One such event was a mini hat fashion show Hayley did over at Leila's house.
I think we have a budding fashionista on our hands!

Hayley's started holding her own bottle from time to time and she's even managed to roll over on to her side to better reach her toys which she's also showing increasing interest in.

Our little turtle continues to love the bath, only now she invites some friends in to splash around with her.

Hayley has also recently discovered the great art of playing. Whether she's playing dress up with Grandma's jewelry, having some tummy time or playing with her new activity center while watching Baby Einstein movies, Hayley is having a blast!

June was a big month for Hayley's Aunt Kati. She went to prom and graduated from high school and we were all lucky to be involved in both.
Geoff and I take a lot of pride in what a great daughter we have and I just can't express how it feels to be blessed with such a happy little girl.

I can't wait to see what her 5th month brings!
