Baby Girl 4Months

It's hard to believe how much The Babe has grown in just 4 months. So much change in such a short time. Luckily she seems to be over the colic phase for the most part. That's a nice change for all of us.
Other than that she is so much more alert and aware of her surroundings. She's very sociable and likes to be able to watch what we're all doing. She's also quite chatty and verbal. She likes people and is quick to coo and giggle and smile.
We had a rough week last week where The Babe had a cold/stuffy nose at night. She had a terrible time sleeping but it seems to be on the way out and last night was an improvement.

The Babe is still velvety soft and cuddly. Although she often prefers to be held so she can see what's going on around her (like a sack of potatoes her daddy says). Her big brothers take time to notice her now and then, mostly appreciating her toys!

One thing I enjoy so much and will miss later is the way she puts her little hand on my chest, or tucks it into my colar when she is eating. I love that sweet little hand!
I also love the way she always smiles and is so happy to see me when I get her up in the morning. Pure sunshine!

The Babe is such a joy. Even with all the daily chaos I enjoy her so much.

Let the Sunshine in...
She's gorgeous!
Great shots Mrs. them all, the look of concentration with the book and the fist in mouth...too cute.
I love this feeding business because of the cuddle time, once their need to feed with us is gone, will they cuddle as often? Doubtful. Enjoy that little hand. It's precious.

You're doing great with all your photo stuff...I enjoy seeing what you come up with. (I just have to make the time to play w/ my camera day soon)

She is darling and adorable in every single way. And your comment on the little hand made me feel a little choked up - I remember that so well!

She is so beautiful. I love the picture with her on her stomach reading intently. You are very talented.
