Four months with Baby Girl! I noticed that I’m more excited than sad this time around. In the past, I’ve been pretty emotional about how fast she’s growing, but now I’m looking forward to all the things she can do! This month, she is going to be able to try solid foods! I want to wait until her actual 4-month appt so we can get some guidance from her doctor first. I also won’t have any stats on her height and weight until then. But I’ll update this post with her stats and let you know how her first foods went next month! So, without further adieu, here’s an update on her life!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you saw the first pair of shoes that Autumn wore! My mother in law bought her the cutest little boots for the colder weather. She also knit her a sweater set, which came with little booties that are too small for her feet now! 🙁 Awhile back, Autumn received the shoes below from one of my husband’s friends. I’m hoping that they fit in time for the holidays! Look how adorable and festive they are!
Autumn still loves a good diaper change. I realized from my previous post in this series that I don’t have any images of her getting a diaper change, so I’m hoping that I’ll get to capture this via photo or video before she realizes that it’s just a diaper change. It’s still so amusing to me to see how excited she gets!
These days, it’s rare that we find her sitting without her fingers in her mouth. Everyone says she’s teething, but I think she just discovered her fingers and liked the way they taste!
This month she has started becoming increasingly mobile. I’m not really sure why, but she started doing leg lifts. At times, I’ll look over at her and she’ll just be laying on her back with her legs suspended straight up in the air! I’m thinking she’s going to start rolling over (back to front) soon. In fact, the other day I watched her like, rotate herself — for lack of another way to explain it. But don’t take my word for it!
Ugh! The connection I feel with this little girl is truly amazing. After she has her first bottle of the morning, she’ll usually lay on my chest and just look up at me. I love those moments when she just looks up at me with her big, beautiful eyes and her little dimples.
I also love watching my husband with Autumn. When he wakes up in the morning and joins me and Autumn on the couch, she doesn’t take her eyes off of him. He loves getting home from work to see his little girl. When asked, my hubby always says that he loves fatherhood — that it felt like it came naturally. I know there has been a learning curve for us as new parents, but the love we have for her can be described as just that — natural.
