4 months

Well here we are four months old, I can hardly believe how fast time is flying by. Nico looks a wee bit underwhelmed in the obligatory couch and pillow shot.

It is really hard to get a picture of her smiling because when we pull out the camera she stops what she is doing, giggling, smiling, and just stares very soberly at the black box obliterating the photographers face. What can I say, she really likes looking at people's faces.

A few days ago she started to reach out straight in front of her. Now she can actually grab the dangly things on the baby gym when she is under it, no more staring at those little toys just out of reach. She has begun to stretch her arms out to us now, so that she can grab at our hand, face, whatever, and suck on it. Nico smiles very easily, but it takes a bit more effort to get her to laugh. When she does laugh it is usually a loud squawk, or a high squeal. We love it when she favors us with a laugh, we feel so privileged.

Nico is still sleeping in a bassinet in our room. She wakes up a few times at night to eat and usually goes right back to sleep. However, in the early hours of the morning she gets a little restless and noisy, and she ends up in bed with us so we can all sleep a little longer.
We are still just as smitten with her as ever.

She's so adorable! My mom kept gushing about how cute she was when she saw her at church last week! :-)

Isn't it fun when they hit those little milestones? I love it!

I think I've mentioned this before, but Nico is the most beautiful baby. Her little features are just perfect and small! What a beauty!

"obliterating the photographers face" I love the word obliterate.

When are you bringing her over?
