Heidi – you are now 4 months old! Fall is in the air and you are growing to be such a big girl! You grab anything that is within your reach. Your eyes get so big and your mouth makes this little fish face when you you are staring or concentrating on something that you might want to grab. Your eyes are still blue, which I love!! You are now sleeping in your crib in your very own room and you are fine with it – no problems at all! You are such a deep sleeper, which is very nice since sometimes Hunter likes to bark at the neighbors or cats during the night. Laughing and smiling are two of your favorite things to do. You are such a happy baby. I am still your favorite and that makes me so happy. We are still breastfeeding and you have gotten such a big appetite. I feel like an overworked dairy farm sometimes 🙂 While we were in Gatlinburg for your first big vacation you stood up while holding onto my hands. I didn’t help you at all! It was crazy and we could not believe it. Probably a fluke, but yes, you stood up! You are rolling over from your belly to your back and you are always so proud of yourself! You are happiest when you are sitting up or while we are holding you and walking around. It is so cute the way you want to look and observe at everything that is around you.
Morning time is when you are the happiest. I think its because you are sleeping for such a long period of time. You still go to bed between 8 and 9 and then wake up once to feed around 5 and then wake up again around 8. You seem to like going to church and you are really such a good baby throughout the whole service – no fussing or crying or anything! I still do not enjoy working only because I hate being away from you. No other reason. I would rather sit at home with you having a PJ day than do anything else. I bought you a little exersaucer this month at a yard sale and you love it! Right now you are still a little small for it, but we stick a little towel in the front and that helps you fit a little better.
You can fit in some of the 0-3 month clothes, some 3 month, and of course 3-6 month. I love to put you in the little sleepers and pj’s with feet. Sometimes your dad and I will take a peak at you during the night and just giggle at you with your little booty in the air. Heidi, you are such a precious blessing to your dad and I – to our entire family. I thank God each and every day that you are here – that you made it here.
