And the little one said: Roll over, roll over

So Amaya did. She rolled over once about a month ago, and then hadn't done it since. But within the last week, flipping over from her back to her belly is all she does. Then of course, she gets mad and starts screaming because she can't roll over onto her back again. Her screams are paired with so much drool production that it is to the point where it's sometimes hard to find a dry spot to lie her back down on when I come to flip her back over.
Her other physical gymnastics include doing crunches to try to sit up, working on her breast stroke in the bathtub and clapping her hands to "The Ants Go Marching".

She continues to grow at an unapproved rate. Her appointment on the 2nd found her weighing 15 lbs 2.8 oz and measuring 25.5" in height. That puts her in the 90th and 80th percentile respectively. If she keeps his up, she'll be bigger than her brother by July.

In other Amaya related news, she has become a very violent eater. While she's sucking down her grub, she digs her little claws into your hand and grips it with such force as to be sure that you have no intention of taking the bottle away from her greedy little mouth. Once the formula has been completely drained, she lets loose a wail of such rage at the loss of the food that you'd think she hadn't had anything to eat for days instead of just three hours. She can present a quite angry disposition when she wants to which concerns me for how her teenage years are going to go if this is what we are already dealing with at four months. Boarding school might become an option...
