Letters to Charlotte: 4 Months
Um, I guess you somehow got the memo that today you turned 4 months old, because wow, you have really turned it ON today. You have been babbling and cooing all day long- I think you are going to be quite the chatterbox. With your new hobby of talking, talking, talking, you also decided today that naps are apparently for the birds. Good thing you are so cute, because I am utterly exhausted tonight.
You still love to eat, and are so far exclusively breastfed. You are a petite little girl, weighing 11 pounds, 4 ounces. You wear 3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. You have started to show some interest in toys, particularly ones that light up and play music (hmm, sounds like someone else I know). You can roll over, but you hate tummy time so much that you don’t show off that skill very much yet.
Last month, our schedule and routine were disrupted for a few days because your brother was in the hospital. I was so proud of you- you were an angel and just rolled with it, even though you never knew where you were going to be taken or wake up. It’s taken us a few weeks to get back to where we were before as far as sleeping goes, but I think we’re just about there. You usually sleep a 7-8 hour stretch and then another 4-5 before we get up in the morning.
It is one of my greatest joys to watch you develop and hit milestones. You are spunky, active and opinionated- exactly what this family needs. You are beautiful and I love you so, so much. Happy 4 Months baby girl!
