four months

there's a quote that goes something like people who say you can't love a second child as much as the first don't have more than one child. i know that's not exact wording, but it sums up the idea. i was so fearful before our second baby was born. how could i love this baby as much as i love harper? would there be enough love to go around for both of them?

in a word, absolutely. i don't know why i ever questioned it. my heart isn't divided in half for the two of them; it's doubled.

i am in awe and wonder over this little being. she's pretty amazing.

right now, she's rolling over, front to back and back to front. she's ticklish, even when you're not purposely finding her sweet spots. she's giggling. she's cooing.

Photobucket

she has the twinkle in her eye. she's laid back. she's sleeping (ok, not a ton, but it's getting better).

Photobucket

she is pure heaven, this little one of ours.

Photobucket

she's got a few rolls here and there, and i love it. her cheeks are perfection. she is well fed.

Photobucket

she is loved and adored.

i took her 4 month photos, and realize looking back at these pictures that it completely describes her at this moment in time.

she adores her sister, and lights up whenever harper is near her or paying her any attention...

Photobucket
harper is my blurry subject on the right.
she is a drooly, drooly mess most of the time...

Photobucket

she goes from no smile to full-wattage in less than 2 seconds...

Photobucket

she sticks out her tongue...

Photobucket

she shows concerns over things around her she's not sure of...

Photobucket

and then she spots someone she knows...

Photobucket

everything goes in her mouth, including anyone's finger who dares get near her grip...

Photobucket

she is starting to sit longer in her bebe pod...

Photobucket

she reminds me that i need to clean my floors more often...

Photobucket

she is raspberrying constantly...

Photobucket

she is so lovingly nicknamed cee roz, cee cee, croz, baby bee, cc bungalow, cc rider, and my favorite- shmoo boo or shmoo berry, after the 1948 cartoon, shmoo.



same moniker we used to call griffin, whom she reminds us so much of.

Photobucket

she is a delight, and we are so lucky and thankful that she's ours.
