Hooray! You are 4 months old! I haven’t written in my blog since your 3 month letter and that is a little disappointing. We’ve had a tough month but things are starting to look up. Mama was really sick for a couple of weeks and you had your THIRD cold/cough in your short little life. Breaks my heart every time. You handle it so well though. . . much better than I do.
You started rolling over this month! You roll from your back to your stomach but haven’t really mastered rolling from your stomach to back. Once you roll to your stomach, you get frustrated since you still hate being on your stomach unless you’re asleep. Your favorite place to practice rolling is on our bed while I’m changing your diaper. I don’t get to lay you on the floor as much as I’d like since your big brother is always running wild and I don’t want him to step on you. . . so I’m surprised you mastered this skill so quickly! Such a smart little thing.
You also found your cute little feet this month and they are in your mouth or hands every opportunity you get.
You’re already fitting into your 6 month clothes because of how long you are! We just had your 4 month checkup yesterday and you are 24.5 in tall and weighed in at 14lbs 3 oz! Both of which are in the 60th percentile. Could you be anymore perfect?
This month you experienced your first Valentine’s Day, my little love! Mama didn’t get you or your brother any special gifts since I knew you wouldn’t even remember them but we did make cards for your daddy! We traced your tiny little hand and I wrote in it for you. He LOVED it! You are his precious Valentine every day.
You are seriously one of the happiest babies I’ve ever known. I know all mama’s probably say that about their babies…but I’ve been around a lot of them and I can honestly say so! Although not everyone has been able to see you like I do since you still aren’t a big fan of many other people holding you. You love to observe safely in my arms. Your brother is your biggest enjoyment right now. When he’s running wild around the room, your eyes stay locked on him. I know you can’t wait to play. Oh and just to brag some more…it’s quite possible that you are the smartest baby in the world. You’ve already mastered taking out your pacifier and putting it back in. Some may say it’s by accident, but I say you are just a pure genius! (like your daddy)
We made it through our first week without daddy. I know you missed him a lot. It wasn’t easy, but your grandma and papa helped a whole lot. We have all loved having him back home this week and it made me appreciate him so much more. It’s going to take a while to get used to him traveling.
You have been the most amazing addition to our family. I dreamed about you for so long. . . and I am still amazed you are here. You have the sweetest personality that is starting to really show. When you were first born, I was scared the intense love I felt for you would slowly fade but it’s done the opposite. It grows more every day.
I love you baby girl.
