Happy 4 months old, baby girl!

Honestly, it really feels like me + daddy just brought you home from the hospital. I can't believe you're changing and growing so fast. You're doing new things everyday. You're unstoppable!

Mommy has had the biggest pleasure in my life being around you. Your smiles and laughs brighten even my worst moments. Watching you figure something out for the first time is thrilling. Helping you learn new things is amazing. I'm so happy that we finally have you here. I love daydreaming (when I get a free moment, you keep me pretty busy little lady!) about all the things you'll learn and get to do. We've seen your first smile, we've heard your first laugh and last night, we saw you eat cereal for the first time. There will be birthday parties, playdates, imagination + dress up times, your first words, your first steps, first heartbreak, first kiss, your graduations + wedding. I know, those are all very far into the future, but still I think about them. I couldn't be prouder. I am your mommy - and nothing gives me more bliss + happiness.

Mommy (and daddy!) love you so very much, bug. We always have and we always will! Keep growing into that amazing little girl you are...

So I know everyone wants the latest stats..

Your 4 month checkup isn't until next week so all that good info will come later.
You're still eating 6 oz every 3 (sometimes 2 1/2) hours.
We gave you rice cereal for the first time. You weren't quite sure what to do at first, but I have a pretty good feeling you're going to love it. Take 2 will come tonight!
Your smile gets prettier every day + you've officially mastered the laugh. You love laughing at mommy. And sometimes, you look at me or daddy and you have this smile that says "I know something you don't know" and it's ADORABLE!
You are an excellent bumbo sitter. You can sit up great anytime you have a little help.
Those legs of yours have amazing strength. You'll stand (with help!) for minutes + minutes at a time without getting tired. Mommy + daddy like to think one day you'll be a runner or a soccer player...or maybe a dancer like aunt ashley!
We think you may be starting to teeth. You never drooled before and now it comes out like a waterfall sometimes. Okay, yes, mommy is exaggerating a bit, but seriously baby, it's some major drool. Just something else to get all over mommy, huh?!
You still throw up after your feedings. Not as much, but still enough to warrant a bib on you most of the time. People keep saying it should stop around 6 months...we'll see!
You're a good sleeper. You recently figured out days from nights and you so sweetly sleep all night. You don't always go to sleep easily at night but once you do fall asleep you don't wake up until around 6-7 am. You'll take a bottle then sleep in your swing for another 3 hours! Usually. Naps aren't your favorite but sometimes you participate easily. And when you don't, mommy + daddy have the car. It always works!
3-6 months clothing is what you are in...although, an occasional 0-3 months onesie will fit and a hand-me-down carters 6 months dress fits you great.
You're moving into size 3 diapers.
You love playing with the baby in the mirror!
You love new faces + new places.
You LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba.
You've learned how to hold your toys + rattles and will play with them.
You're doing good with tummy time. And, when you are on your boppy during tummy time, you push yourself right off over the front of it!
You found your feet and LOVE playing with them! It's only a matter of time before those piggies are in your mouth.

Until the next letter, keep smiling and being amazing!
