hello erin »

four months

Dear Alexandria:

Month three has been the best month yet! You’ve developed such happy baby disposition and love to giggle, talk, and give us giant gummy smiles.

You wake us up every morning not with crying, but with lots of babbling. Talking to your mobile, your fishies, and Pierre. We must talk about Pierre- Pierre is your lovie- this adorable striped horse attached to a soft pink blanket. Your aunt leslie named him “Pierre” and it’s stuck- you sleep with Pierre every nap and every night. It’s so sweet the way you cling to him (and chew on him).

We’ve all settled into quite the routine- eat, play, sleep. Playing definitely seems to be your favorite of the three as you reach, grab, and shove everything into your mouth. Your toys are definitely getting a work out!

Tummy time has brought you some awesome head and neck control. It’s also brought little kicking legs desperate to propel you somewhere.

It always feels like the next big thing is just around the corner.  Rice cereal can’t be far off, and we’re hoping your big 4-month check-up brings the go-ahead.  We’re insanely excited to see how you like big-girl food!  It also seems like you’re itching to go mobile in the next few months.  As soon as you get on your tummy, those arms and legs start flying.  And you can put a surprising amount of weight on those little baby legs of yours!  Lastly, your mom and dad are keeping a close ear on those cute baby sounds you’re making…a “dada” or “mama” can’t be far off.  You can be sure we’ll be there waiting with plenty of encouragement!

Keep up the good work little girl…your mom and dad are eager to see the next big changes this coming month!
