Reese is 4 Months!

Last  week my sweet Reesie girl turned four months old and I think its safe to say she has left her newborn days behind.  I don't know when it happened but all of the sudden she has gone from a sleepy newborn to an alert, active, and charming little person!  And dare I say, things have just gotten easier.  I'm starting to feel like I know what I'm doing a little bit more and we are really getting the hang of one another.  In the last month her personality has just exploded and she loves to babble and make sounds...and I swear she's trying to tell me something.  Sometimes she talks through her sleep and she wakes me up each morning with tons of sounds over the monitor that let me know she's ready to start her day!  Her hands are constantly in your mouth and the drool is never-ending.  She's discovered her rattle and can hold it and shake it on her own. This month we celebrated her first Thanksgiving and kicked off the inaugural Christmas season.  I'm just so excited for her first Christmas and love starting new traditions with our little munchkin.

This month (knock on wood) we have gotten the hang of sleeping at night (YAY for me!).  Right as she hit four months she began sleeping from about 8:30/9:00 until anywhere from 5-6:00am. Sometimes she'll need a little extra help settling down to go to sleep for the night, but seems to have dropped her 3/4:00am feeding all on her own.  I've packed away the 0-3 month clothes and we're sporting 3-6 month sizes, although they're a bit big on her.  She's still rocking size one diapers but probably not for much longer.  

I'm beyond smitten with my girl and absolutely love watching her grow and although it's bittersweet how quickly it all happens, nothing compares to the joy of watching her discover new things.  She is the sweetest, most curious and affectionate little girl.  I hope no matter what she'll always know how deeply and fiercely she is loved.   Here's to another great month!
