Our baby girl is 4 months old and I cannot believe it. It has been such a treat to watch her little personality develop. She has preferences, different moods and it quite the talker. I will post photos sometime this week after her 4 month photo shoot with mom.
She has her 4 month check up tomorrow as well as round 2 of shots. I hope it goes as smoothly as the last ones did. She cried only for a bit last time and then enjoyed a bottle before going home and sleeping most of the evening.
Her new “thing” is rolling from her back to her belly. This is great, HOWEVER, she doesn’t know how to roll back or keep her head up. She can lift her head up, but then she gets tired. Also, instead of turning her head to the side, she face plants and tries to lick the ground. You see our issue here, right? This has led to many sleepless night because I fear she’ll roll over (which she insists on doing) and get stuck and not be able to “save herself”. So it leads to me hearing any kind of stirring from her crib, and then I have to use the light of my cell phone to shine it on her to make sure she’s in a safe sleeping position *sigh*. So, we’ve been upping our tummy time sessions with her in hopes she learns to roll the other way soon- or at least learn to turn her head to the side. Oh the joys! What will I do when she’s 16 and out past curfew. Knowing me I’ll probably alert the police and organize a search crew. Oh the joys of motherhood. What do chill moms do? Drink lots of wine? I need a chill pill!
Esther continues to love daycare and has made some friends there. I feel like on the weekends she happy to be home with mommy and daddy, but sometimes it seems she’d like more playing with little people. It’s hard during the week because I want to be there to witness her making friends. I’ve seen some of this when picking her up in the afternoons. There is a little boy there around 3 years old that has taken her under his wing! He likes to play with her, show her toys and talk to her. It warms my heart to see her look over and smile at him.
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll check back in tomorrow (or the next day) to let you know how her 4 month appt. went.
Thanks for peeking in on us!
