Ani: Four Months

April 8, 2013

If there are four things to know about Ani at four months:

  1. She is a drool machine. (I’m not complaining because she rarely spits up). 
  2. She loves to suck on anything she can find. If she gets her arms out of her swaddle in bed, I can hear her over the sound machine, loudly slurping away at her fists. And if she gets a hold of your hand, she’ll pull it up to her mouth and suck on that too.
  3. She occasionally will roll over from her back onto her stomach, but so far hasn’t figured out how to do the opposite.
  4. She doesn’t cry much, but she is constantly making noises. When she’s happy, it’s quiet, but the more tired or unhappy she gets, the louder and faster her little talking becomes.

(But you might also like to know that she is just the sweetest, calmest little baby I know, and we all are enormously fond of her. She smiles like you can’t believe, especially at Bart and Ella. And those chunky little legs? I die).

    What a little sweetheart! I wish I could just pick her up and give her a hug and play with her. And in a few weeks, I guess I can. Love to all.

    So so so cute. I reaaaaally hope you make it over here so I can snuggle her!!

    My friend's little boy is the same age and loves to suck too. If your fingers pass anywhere NEAR his mouth he will get you and next thing you know you're a human pacifier. Crazy babies.

    I just can't get over her red hair! She is absolutely darling. I can't believe she is four months already. Time seriously flies by! BYW I am halfway through I've got your number and I seriously laugh out loud. I love it, are her other books just as good?

    She's gorgeous!

    And I love that pillow she's posed against, it's beautiful!

    But your baby is still prettier!

    She's adorable! Is her hair that red in real life? Because I love it.

    What a cutie! And I love that you do these fun posts for your little ones. A great way to keep tabs on how they're growing and changing without worrying about recording everything they do. 🙂

    She is looking so mature! She looks like she could hold a conversation with someone and then stand up and walk across the room. She is growing up so quickly. Such a pretty face!

    Ani is just like my Grier! Except he has only really made it about 3/4 of the way through rolling over. I can totally relate to the sucking noise… I feel like I can hear it anywhere in our apartment =) She is a cutie!
