Growing so fast...

My sweet baby girl is growing up way too fast!  I know it's normal for children to grow and change but it's really starting to hit me that these will be my last "firsts" with an infant.  She is now 4 months old and changing in many ways.  We have started to give her rice cereal at dinnertime and she seems to love it.  She was quick to figure out how to eat off a spoon.  Next, we are going to start introducing veggies one at a time.  I'm excited to try new foods with her and watch as she explores different tastes.
She is now rolling over, but she learned it in the wrong order.  She rolls from her back to belly and cannot yet roll from her belly to back.  This has become a problem because at night she keeps rolling to her belly and getting scared.  She immediately cries and won't stop until I roll her to her back.  One of 2 things needs to happen ASAP so we all start getting rest again.  Either she needs to learn to like being on her belly or she needs to hurry up and learn how to roll from belly to back. 
Hannah is also becoming much more alert.  She always wants to watch her brother and needs to see who's talking.  She loves to smile, hold toys, put anything in her mouth, and stand (with support).  I love watching what each new day brings with her and look forward to her upcoming milestones.
