4 Months

Esther is 4 months now. Such a big girl - she's trying to roll over - can find her hands and get them to her mouth (all the time) and reach for things. The rest of the kids are fascinated by all the changes that seem to happen daily in a baby's life. Esther also now weighs 13 lbs 5 oz. - a soft snugly little package. Such a blessing from God!!!

Sweet dreams
Abbie and Essie - what a pair!!!
My happy face
On another note: it seems winter is finally making it's way to the Pacific Northwest. They say an Arctic Blast from Alaska is headed our way.
For snow to arrive here the conditions have to line up perfectly without any interference from the warm Pacific Ocean or any blockage from both mountain ranges in our area - all that also makes it extremely hard on the poor weathermen!! So by Friday we are going to be below freezing and they say a bit of snow. Then again on into next week.
For as many children who pray for snow in here there are probably twice as many adults who try to pray it away (I'm not one of them). There are many steep hills in our area and a lot of inexperienced snow drivers. I just stay home and play, play, play.
So we are praying for snow and more snow. We are getting out the mittens and scarves and hoping all the conditions line up right and we wake up Friday or Saturday with our yard looking like this:
So that we can all go outside and do this:
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!

I love the precious sleeping picture! I hope your kids' wish comes true! :o) Your trees are beautiful in the snow. (btw, going via Lake Crescent is my favorite way too!)

My kids wish we had snow here! Barely a dusting the other day, definitely not enough for sledding or anything like that! Your baby sure is an angel:)

4 months already. I am loving seeing the Ester become more and more alert and watching her notice the world around her. She is so precious. One of my babies was smaller her first year of life and it was so nice when I had to carry her around..easier on my arms!
