four month check-up

Sonia had her four month check-up today. She weighed in at a mere 13 pounds, 6 ounces and 24.5 inches. But strong and feisty. In perfect health. Apparently the fact that she never. stops. moving. means that she burns a lot of calories. Imagine that!

Not afraid to wear pink

Sharing hands with Amaya. They will soon be wrestling.

Is there anything more brilliant than reversible clothing? They should totally make more reversibles in adult sizes. Because, sometimes you feel like a stripe, and sometimes you don't...

All I want for Christmas are my two front teeth

Or bottom teeth, as the case may be. Sonia has been miserable for the past few days in teething agony. I know that this can go on for months, but for Sonia's (and our) sake I hope she has teeth by Christmas.

OMG we moved

So...moving is tough. Try it with a four-month-old. That is no easy task. But alas, we made it. We are in. Thanks to Sanjee's hard work, most of the boxes are even unpacked. We'll wait until it's a little more "done" to post pictures of the fantastic place, but, it's, well...fantastic.

So...let's catch up a bit.

While we were moving on Thursday, Sonia spent the day with her Grandma, Mumsie. Mums took these pictures of the day.

::Reading to her Auntie Tati::

On Saturday, Sonia experienced her first snowstorm. We got about 5 inches. Sonia was totally in to it, as you can see.

She completed her first trimester of ECFE. Here she is with her friends. Her hand is resting on her best friend, Amaya.

Today, sitting in her chair, looking out the window. She looks to me like a rebellious teenager in this photo.

Month four


I'm sure I will say this a million times throughout your life, but this is my favorite age. You are four months old today. You play, you sing, you tell stories. You roll around, chew on your feet, slobber all over and smile these huge smiles. You love to stand on your feet and pretend to walk. You love Sophie the giraffe. You love when we sing "The Wheels on the Bus." You have the silliest hair and the stinkiest feet.

One morning you woke up next to me in bed and I pretended that I was still asleep. I was secretly watching you as you inched your body closer and closer to mine until your nose was pressed against my face. You were cooing and smiling. What a wonderful way to wake up! What a clever little baby.

You are the most curious baby I have ever met. You watch everything with such intensity. I look at you and see the wheel in your brain spinning. You are really trying to figure out the complicated world around you.

We moved this week. While I was so ready to move into a new place with so much more space, I was a little sad to think we were leaving the place in which we brought you home from the hospital. I was sad to take down your favorite ornament that hung above your changing table. But our home now - you will remember this place. It will be filled of your many firsts.
