I can barely believe another month has come and gone. You have added so much joy to our lives. I never knew before that I could be as happy and blessed as I am in this moment. Your light and loveliness* shines on all of your family members and we are all better people because of it. You are helping me rediscover my own childhood through your eyes and I am so thankful for it. You are so important to me, your daddy, and your brother. You are mommy's little sidekick and I cherish every moment we are together.
Thank you for being you. I love you.
Laying in her crib (just for show)
What you're doing these days:
your favorite word is already "yes". I get huge grins and giggles from you when I say it.
your favorite song for mommy to sing to you is "A Bicycle Built for Two (Daisy Bell)"
you have a strong and vibrant voice and like to tell us exactly what you need
you are so strong and love to "stand" and be "taller than mommy!"
when you're being carried you like to turn your body to see where you're going
you love to watch your brother and his friends run up and down the court at his basketball games
you're enthralled by all the children at school when we pick Kameron up each day
you are still working on teething (we feel ridges on your top gum) and have teething toys, but prefer knuckles
you have noticed your fingers and toes and you're constantly playing with them
you've graduated from the Bumbo to the exersaucer
you still prefer to sleep in mommy's arms during the day (no swing or crib for you yet)
you sleep through the night and are mommy's little cuddle bug
you like when I say "I'm going to get you, I'm going to get you!" and I wiggle my fingers as I get closer to tickle you on your neck on either side. You smile so BIG!
you still absolutely loathe your car seat. You fuss when you go in and fuss when we get you out. You fight against us when we're unbuckling you even though it just makes it take longer to free you from your car seat. I try to explain that to you each time, but you just don't quite understand yet. You still feel the need to scold us.
you rolled over on your 4 month birthday yesterday!
Yaaaaaaay! We love you sweet girl!
