4 Months

Grace,
I can't believe you are 4 months old today! It feels like I blinked my eyes and went from being 7 months pregnant to having a 4 month old. I love watching you grow, but I really do wish that time would slow down just a little bit. I feel like in the last month you really went from being a newborn to a baby. You had lots of firsts this past month:
Your first snow


your first Christmas
your first New Year's Eve
and your first tooth finally poked through!
You really found your thumb this past month and now it is hard to get a picture of you without it in your mouth!

Between teething and thumb sucking, you have become quite the drooler, we now go through at least 4-5 bibs a day!
You've been working on rolling a lot the past few weeks. You can roll from your belly to your back really well, but have a harder time rolling from your back to your belly. Oh, and you absolutely hate learning how to roll, it frustrates you to no end!
This month your smiles haven gotten even bigger and easier to get!
You've started noticing and interacting with your environment and toys so much more!
Now as far as sleep goes this past month has been difficult. We started trying to put you to bed in your crib, but you just will not stand for it. We try for at least 2 hours every night and have yet to be successful. We've tried switching the order of our bed time routine, we've tried making it earlier, and we've tried making in later, still nothing. That's okay though, I know you'll get it someday, after all I can't be that mad that you cry because you want to be close to me!

Keep growing (not to fast)! I love you to pieces

Love,

Momma

Great post Kristen ... has it already been 4 months??? I hope my time doesn't fly by that fast - but I know it will and in 4 months I will be crying while looking at the comparisons ... and Miss Grace sure has changed - she is so darn cute with those cheeks! How can you not want to have her close ... good luck with th crib move - we are starting our 'move' on Monday - 3 weeks old!!! Ugh! Hope you are staying warm - and BIG CONGRATS on your weigh ins - I am so proud of you!!! Have a great week!
