Four Months

Our darling Eva turned four months old yesterday.

She would like to take this opportunity to show you how she is an expert at sucking on her hands and to thank Grammy for the cowlick she inherited.

At four months she is doing all of the wonderful things she is supposed to do. She makes eye contact and smiles and flirts like a pro. She coos and gurgles and talks to you, her toys, herself, and the wall. She drools like CRAZY and must have a teething bib on at all times, otherwise her clothes are saturated in minutes. She can look at something and then reach out to grab it. She then immediately tries to put it in her mouth. I have a feeling that babyproofing is going to be a challenge this time around. She loves to play in her jumperoo, bouncing a little and then concentrating on the toys. She does not love tummy time.

I don't think it has occurred to her that she might possibly roll out of tummy time - she usually looks around for a bit, then sucks on her hands for a bit, then puts her face down on the ground and cries. So we've got some work to do there.

She is, however, really working on rolling from back to front.

She has successfully made it over only once, but it seems to me that with the amount of practice she's doing (notably when I am trying to change her diaper) more rolling can't be far away.

She is very interested in our mealtimes. We usually start her out in the swing, where she is happy to remain for about five minutes. After that she insists on being on a lap, where she is content to sit and look around and try to swipe food off of our plates.

We ordered her high chair yesterday and expect to get the go-ahead for solids at her pedi appt at the end of this week.

These past four months have been such a blur that I am almost surprised to look up and find we have such a happy, healthy, delightful and OLD baby! Good work Eva Joyce!
