4 months old!

Hello sweet love! Here you are 4 months old already and getting more beautiful as the time passes.

Stats: 13 lbs, 21.5 inches, 16 inch HC - all within the 50th percentile
Diapers - Pampers size 1
Clothing - 0 to 3 months
We have a small fortune tied up in pacifiers. We have tried Soothies, Nuk, Avent, Mam and most recently the First Years brand Gum Drops. You tolerate the Soothies at times, the Gum Drops and your preferred pick are the Avent however you are just as happy gnawing on your fingers or thumb. You still take very sporadic naps throughout the day. Some days better than others. You continue to sleep through the night PTL.
What is new? You now have the most scrumptious chunky thighs, you smile easily and even belly laugh which I can't get enough of. You rolled over from front to back for the 1st time on Cinco de Mayo and have done so several times since then. You have thee.most.ridiculous hair line on the back of your neck. This description doesn't do it justice but it looks something like this ... peach fuzz all over until you reach the classic baby bald spot (and baby girl you are sporting a good one!), followed by a long, thick, dark tuft of hair that rests on your neck. Your siblings have shown an increased interest in you this month. Your bubby has even tried to pick you up on occasion and covers you in kisses regularly.

We all get lost in your big blue eyes. A new nickname you have adopted is my B-BEG.
My Beautiful Blue Eyed Girl XOXO

This is your favorite play "toy." You love your piggies and inevitably reach for them when it is time for diaper changes.

And I love this picture because you are a professional bubble blower and can be caught with bubbles on your adorable pouty lips at any given time.
Mommy finally started on your 1st year keepsake album this past Friday night. I completed two layouts. I am excited to dive into it, but am having difficulty making the time.
Mommy will sign off with the lyrics to the song played on your birth slideshow.

You're a little piece of heaven
You're a golden ray of light
and I wish I could protect you
from the worries of this life.
But if there's one thing I could tell you
it's no matter what you do
hold to Jesus, He's holding onto you.
Hear me dear Jesus,
rock this little one to sleep
keep her close when she is scared, and
give her grace when she is weak.
I know she'll stumble, but I know she'll make it through
if you hold onto just like you said you do
hold her Jesus so she'll hold on tight to you.

I want prints! Again, I'm so glad you take the time to record all the baby information. I really see Travis in her now too. Love & hugs. Mom

Aw, SUCH a pretty girl. I love her bubbles. :)

Love the headband! And your backdrop. We have the same one we bought when Ben was a newborn. Great minds think alike!
