4 Months Old!
I can't believe she's 4 months old! Time is just flying past us. I'm really trying hard to cherish these little baby moments because they'll be gone before I know it!
Likes: Rocking, using the paci when rocking, eating, playing after eating, the playmat, the jumperoo, laughing at mommy and daddy, watching tv, grabbing things, rolling from your belly to your back, anything RED, bathtime.
Disklikes: Being put in the swing when you want to be held, your carseat "the green prison", rice/oatmeal cereal, having your nose suctioned, when someone takes your food from you prematurely, getting hot, and being put down when you first wake up.
I never realized I could love someone THIS much. I actually worry that I can't love more than one child this much! (I know that's not true, but it's hard to imagine!) Our lives have been richly blessed!
Judd and I were sick a few days ago and Mrs. Candy had to come get Caroline and keep her overnight. I cried! I missed her so much! I snuggled her every chance I got when she came home.
Caroline is a WONDERFUL baby! She sleeps from about 11pm-6am when Judd gives her a bottle before he leaves for work. Then she wakes me up anywhere from 2-4 hours later. This morning she didn't wake me up until 10:15am! I was SHOCKED when I saw the clock! That was a great night's sleep!
And here's what Caroline thought of rice/oatmeal cereal in ONE picture:
Four months has been the most fun so far! She smiles all.the.time. Her Granna even made her laugh out loud on New Year's Eve! It was possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen. She laughed and laughed. I got her to giggle yesterday but since Granna left she hasn't laughed anymore! Guess we need Granna to come back and visit! ;) Really, Caroline is a pretty "easy" baby. She hardly ever cries anymore unless she's super tired or needs to poop. We really can't complain! If all of my children are just like her - we'll count ourselves VERY lucky!
I can't wait to watch her grow up, but at the same time, I wish she would stay little forever. Last night, she put her head on my shoulder and we rocked. She was so content. I was so content. I wanted that moment to last forever! But since she has to grow up - I'm glad I got the privilege of being her mom. I can't wait to watch every single second! We love you, Caroline!
