Life at 4 months

Four months ago today I held my littlest for the first time. It was at that moment when I looked into her eyes and knew that my life was going to be changing (for the better). As love filled my eyes in the form of tears I wondered how I deserved such a perfect, swollen face, sweet baby as this. But, my faith reminds me that God already knew I would be here. He gave me this opportunity; this daughter.

Mommy loves you, Leah Hope.

In four months, Leah has grown to show us so much personality. More than I remember noticing with Ayla at this age. As a first time mom, you worry and read and "think" too much. Now I just try to make sure to slow down to cherish everyday with both of my girls.

At 4 months Leah....

mimicks laughter in conversation.

smiles often.

gets a little stranger danger.

rolls both ways and all over the place.

has a very strong standing reflex & loves to jump.

nurses well, still every 3 hours. Takes one bottle a formula at night.

starting to watch daddy's fork as he eats and smacks her lips!!

plays with toys well.

drooling and chewing alot!

On every month birthday I have done a little photo shoot with Leah. Ayla usually gets dragged in to join. Today was beautiful weather. Jeff worked in the yard. I painted alot. And then took the girls outside before dinner to snap a few shots. Im going to go out on a limb here, but Im pretty sure I have the most beautiful girls Ever. Really.
