Happy 4 Month Birthday, baby!

19 May

Dearest Daughter of Mine,

Happy 4 month day!  I cannot believe it.  You are getting so big!  The doctors say you are 25.5″ tall and 15.5 lbs.  Sometimes you feel like you weigh 50 lbs.  Like this morning, when you actually decided to wake up to eat your first breakfast.  And then promptly decided it wasn’t worth it and fell back asleep after only finishing half a boob.

Just last week you’ve discovered so many fun things.  Like putting your own pacifier in your mouth.  And playing with the bathwater.  You are also able to sit by yourself with only occasional support and can sit up and lay down well controlled with only minimal support from our fingers.

The only thing you like more than sucking on your hands and pacifier is sucking on other peoples hands.  Especially your Auntie Marla’s.  That’s your all time favorite.  I’m surprised she even still has a fingernail left with how avidly you grab her hand and pull her finger into your mouth.

Mmmmm Hand.....

You love your puppies so much.  Anytime Darius comes around, you want to watch him.  I cannot wait until you can play together, because I know he will be such a good friend to you!

You also have finally started to like your Nana, much to our relief.  At first, she made you nervous with her voice and her twitchyness.  But now, you will gladly go over to her and even have some great smiles when in her lap.

Your all-time favorite person other than mommy and daddy though is your Grandpa.  He can make you happy in ways that no one else can!  Something about how he walks and how he holds you makes you SO happy, even when you don’t want to be.  You had your first day being watched without mommy or daddy with him last week and had a blast.  Especially when you decided to tell him all about your hands after waking up from your naps together.

Your daddy and I love you so very much, Sugar Bear.  You are everything we could have hoped for and everything we dreamed.  You are so beautiful, inside and out, and I cannot wait to see the girl and woman you become.

Love always,

Your Mommy

      That’s our dog Darius. Who LOVES his baby. He does so well with her, it’s amazing. She was laying on him while her daddy took the pictures for about an hour.
