4 months


Little Elle turned four months on Sunday. Sometimes I feel like we should throw a party every month for her (really just as an excuse to eat some cake and buy balloons)! This little one continues to wrap us around her little finger!

At four months, Ellie:

-loves, loves, loves music. I am in primary now, and every Sunday during singing time, she hums/sings/baby talks right along with us. When daddy plays his guitar, she is enthralled. And these songs calm her down instantly put her to sleep at night.

-loves to stand, all the time. She enjoys the sitting up thing, but would much rather be standing. We’re currently on the hunt for an exersaucer, because man, my arms get sore from holding her up!

-drools. like. crazy.

-rolls onto her tummy and onto her back and loves to scoot across the floor. She is always scooting off her little play mat and all over the living room.

-starting to grab at everything. She loves to take sips of our water as she holds our cup, chew on the remote if we are holding it, and loves pulling mommy’s hair!

-wears size two diapers and is just barely transitioning to 3-6 month clothing.

-has a little personality starting to emerge. If she isn’t happy, boy oh boy, she’ll let us know (with loud screams!) She loves to babble at everyone, although sometimes she gets really shy, and smiles then covers her face with her hands. Most of the time, she’s pretty sweet. 🙂

    ohh she is just so cute!! I don't have kids yet, but my close friend has a nine month old baby boy now and when I went to visit her I saw that her son was wearing this yellow necklace. Turns out it is an amber teething necklace, and it helps to prevent the symptoms of teething (i.e. DROOLING!). I thought it was kinda weird, and none of us have any idea how it works, but I watched him both with and without the necklace, and when he wasn't wearing the necklace there was noticeably way, way, way more drool, plus he also got crabby and grumpier much more quickly than he did with the necklace on. Maybe you could look into it for Elle! 🙂
