Bluebonnets 2015

UV3A4922

The first of many, I pray, of my 3 girls in the lovely Texas bluebonnets.

 

FOUR months

Four Months. Already. Goodness time is sure flying.

At this point the most important thing I can say about Molly at F-O-U-R months old is that she’s perfect. Absolutely positively perfect.

Molly has really blossomed the sweetest and most adorable personality in her 4th month.

We went to the pediatrician for her checkup and she’s 12 pounds 5 ounces which is the 10th percentile. She’s 50th percentile for length and 81st percentile for her head circumference. She received more vaccinations and a perfect check up.

This month, Molly:

Discovered her hands.

Loves to stand while being held.

Holds her head up well now and can turn to follow easily.

Laughed for the first time. 3-20-2015

Is noticeably more interactive and social but at the same time is more shy now.

Seems to recognize her name.

Making lots of sounds and responding to voices.

Beginning to bat objects with her hands.

Kicking in the bathtub.

Molly wears size 3-6 months clothes and has been upped to size 2 diapers. Her feet are TINY so she still can’t wear even size 1 shoes.

She has light brown fuzz coming in on her head and the bluest eyes.

She’s a wonderful sleeper, sleeping anywhere from 10-12 hours at night.

She naps several times during the day.

She’s breastfeeding every 3-4 hours during the day.

She is happy. She hardly fusses. She loves attention. She loves her big sisters. She loves to be held. She is a wonderful baby and we’re enjoying really every minute of her.

One of my favorite times with Molly is in the evenings after the girls have gone to bed and I sit at my computer. She usually snuggles in close on my lap and sleeps or nurses. I cherish these moments where she’s so close to me and so peaceful. I love to photograph her in this way, in this light, the light of my computer screen. Every detail of her is so precious and so quickly changing. UV3A3454UV3A4896UV3A4849-1UV3A3821UV3A3212UV3A3623UV3A3534UV3A3843UV3A4822
