Four Months Old!

My little punk turned four months old yesterday.

my 4-month-old and me

Where does the time go? I can't believe it's been four months since she was born, since the midwife and the doula almost had a heart attack when she almost dropped right down on the birthing center floor. She came out with drama and has been drama ever since - it makes for a busy four months!

This girl wants to MOVE. She used to be content to chill on her belly or try to roll onto her back. Now she just wants to go somewhere, doing "blanket swimming" until she's pivoted herself around in a full 360 and is just frustrated. She is starting to learn how to roll from her back to her belly. Her current obsession is sitting up. She wants to sit up all the time. No more reclining, no more bouncy seat, no more swing, no more car seat. Just sitting upright. All upright all the time.

This girl wants to SEE THE WORLD. Her favorite position is any position involving looking out, which of course usually means sitting upright on my lap looking out at everything around her. She loves to look out the window, she gets excited when she sees animals, she talks to other babies, she studies her hands and feet.

This girl wants to EXPLORE. With her hands, with her mouth, it doesn't matter. She wants to know what's up.

This girl is getting SO BIG!!
