4 Month Update
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Charlotte actually turned 4 months on the 24th, but we were too busy cooking and cleaning to post a quick update. We enjoyed the holiday at our house and ended up having 23 family members here. The guys smoked 4 turkeys and the gals prepared numerous side dishes and desserts. We had fun eating and chatting all day long!! Charlotte has been doing great and growing like a weed. We go to the pediatrician on Friday and I can't wait to see her weight and height gain. I'm raising a giant. Well a giant compared to me. I'm only 5"2' so she looks very long draped across my body. Plus she wiggles non-stop - unless we are outside. It's a fabulous workout.
I love spending the day with my sweet baby girl. She has the most infectious smile and cutest laugh. She's still drooling and chewing on everything in sight. Her favorite teether is Sophie the Giraffe. We are still working on the whole rolling over idea. She can get on her side, but then has no clue what to do with her bottom arm. She's getting close though! She still loves going outside. I've started wearing her in the Baby K'Tan wrap and taking a walk in the afternoons. She would stay out there all day if she could. She also loves sitting in her Bumbo chair. She helps me cook and often curls her toes on the edges of the bowls as she sucks her thumb and watches as we mix things up. The bottom picture is from this morning. I put her in the Bumbo while I do my makeup and she always sits there chattering and watching me. However, today she finally found herself in the mirror and was just beside herself with joy at seeing another baby. We are really looking forward to decorating for Christmas and seeing her reaction to the twinkling lights. Thanks for checking in on us. Enjoy your day.
