I missed it by a couple weeks but this little girl is 4 months old.
And I’m so in love with her.
Not that I didn’t love my other children when they were babies too. But the timing with Clara is a little different.
Lucy was the first child and I’m sure I was anxious for her to sit up, crawl, walk, talk…you know, do stuff. I kinda wanted her to get out of that “baby” stage. Then when I had Owen (cough) 21 months later life was pretty crazy for a while….and Owen was a more needy baby….so I didn’t enjoy that first year like I could have. Granted, now I LOVE that my kids are 21 months apart. I see the benefits since they are perfect playmates and honestly best friends. I just smile watching them play.
But now with Clara….the other two kids are older (4 and 6) and I’m really just enjoying her.
She is an absolute dream and such a sweetheart. She drools everywhere (not so dreamy), sleeps 11 hours at night, smiles and smiles, and just chills in her carseat when we’re driving.
I can not get enough of those chubby cheeks! I’ve never had a baby with so many rolls and I’m lovin it. She’s smothered in kisses all day long from me and Lucy.
Those gummy smiles and coos,
that her feet still fold in together, like she’s clapping,
and that she can finally fit her little H&M sweater dress!
Don’t grow out of it little lady.
Here’s the 4 month comparison:
