Our little BS turned 4 months (five days ago)! What have those first 4 months been like? Well… they’ve been:
Not in a dangerous way! For example, we tried rice cereal out the other day because BS loves to eat and Erin can’t keep up. It was a mess, and I’m sure it’ll only get worse when she starts using the spoon herself.
It’s funny how you can stare at a baby for hours, and just watch their funny faces and how they discover things like their fingers. You would never do that to a grown person. And if you did, I’m sure you’d be considered a real creeper. Or just really odd.
Completely in the physical sense. Ever since she started daycare, we have been constantly rotating sore throats and colds! Someone should invent a humidifier that pumps out sanitizer mist and throw it in the middle of a the daycare.
Oh the things we do to try to get a baby to smile or laugh… crazy! Someday, I’m going to strap my GoPro on Reese’s head so people can watch what they do to get her to smile
Yes, I said restful. We put her down around 8 each night, and I have to wake her up at 7 to get her ready for daycare. Everyone keeps telling us our second child won’t be the same, as if they wish agony upon us… but we will prove them wrong. Someday. In the very distant future. Very. Distant.
Reese likes to party. And by party, I mean do anything and go anywhere we want, and she enjoys it. I’m sure some parents slow down once they have their first kid; we have not. If anything, we’ve sped up, and Reese is always up for the ride.
Reese is ALWAYS happy. It’s rare she has a “bad” day… whatever a bad day could actually be for a baby. So no matter how crappy my day was, when I get home from work she greets me with her happy smile. And no matter how rough or short my night was, she always wakes up laughing. I can’t help but feel the same way!
For those interested, she was 14 pounds (59th percentile) and 26 inches (100th percentile) at her checkup last week. She’s healthy and growing fast! Hopefully she keeps it up and scores a college basketball scholarship
Be well my friends. – Justin
