Four Months

Dear Lorelei,

Another month has gone by too quickly. And I know what you’re going to say: of course it went by too fast, it was February and there are only twenty-eight days (twenty-nine if it’s a Leap Year) in February. Well, Miss Smartypants, you are correct but that doesn’t change the fact that it feels like time is speeding by at a record pace.

You’ve started this month out with a bang. Or should I say a scream. As in, you spent all of this afternoon and evening screaming because you got your shots today. Can we talk about how upsetting that is for poor mommy?

You’ve gotten so big, although you are still so small. Eleven whole pounds and one ounce, not quite double what you weighed when you were born. You can sit up now, albeit with someone or something propping you up, but you don’t lean over to the side as much anymore. You can push yourself up when you’re on your tummy and scoot yourself just a fraction of an inch in the direction you want to go. You’ve gotten so strong that you can pull your elephant toy to make it play without any help. Sometimes, I’ll be sitting here typing away and I’ll be surprised by the sudden music. This morning you detached your zebra (still your favorite toy) from not only the gym but also its ring.

Littlest girl, time may be going by so quickly, but there are days when it feels like you’ve always been here. The perfect completion of our little family. Just do me a favor and don’t grow up too fast, I still like snuggling in bed with you.

Love always,
Your Mother
