Emma Lynn: Four Months


Dear Emma:

I can't believe we are here again. You are just growing too fast. I know four months isn't that long but at the same time four months is also a very long time. It's amazing to me how much you have already grown in just the four months you have been here. And it's not just about how much you have physically changed but also how much you are already learning.

After we got through our last Wonder Week, you changed so much. The biggest things was how aware you suddenly were. You started tracking us easier. You started grabbing things. You have a lot more play time, which includes you just entertaining yourself. Lately you have been wanting to just sit up and watch everything. You are strong but not quite strong enough to sit up by yourself yet, but you can't wait until you can easily take everything in.

You are currently going through another Wonder Week which includes your 4 month wakeful period. I know we have a long way to go before we are out of this Wonder Week and wakeful period, but so far it's been a bit of struggle. You just want to stay awake and see everything. But we are getting through it.

The biggest thing for you this month is definitely that you have officially moved into your own bedroom. We moved you for a nap and you took a crazy long nap so we decided to move you at night. It was an easier decision since it's just across the hall and not down and around the corner like with your brother and sister. So far it seems to be doing you some good because you have been sleeping about 10-11 hours at night. We definitely aren't complaining about that.

In the last month you have taken to being a happy spitter like your sister. I can't tell you how many times you have thrown up on me in the last few weeks. I have just stopped changing both of our clothes unless we are just so soaking wet because you are just going to do it again. But you never seem to be bothered by it. You usually are just so happy and it just starts coming out of your month then more and more. But yet you are happy through it all. At least it doesn't seem to be bothering you. Or causing you to eat more often. You usually eat anywhere from 4-6 ounces every 3-5 hours; going longer at night.

You are definitely the most talkative of all the kids. We guess it's because you know that you will have to be that way to keep up with the noise of your brother and sister. But we love all the talking. And even more we love the giggles.

You are such an amazing little girl. You have so much life and energy. We all adore you so much. I can't wait to see what you'll do next. I love you so much.

Love, Mama
