Charlotte at 4 Months

Charlotte is 4 months old today! She really is such a good baby.


Currently she is practicing blowing raspberries which is actually just turning into a drooling mess.

 If you hold her long enough she will gnaw on your collar bone....I think someone might be starting to teethe.

 Her little giggle is the cutest ever and usually it is followed by a snort

She sleeps through most of the night in her pack and play (that's in our room), except for when she wakes up to have an early morning snack and then I bring her to bed with us (I know, shame on me). 

We have recently tried to put her in her crib for the night but she's not having it just yet. She will nap in her room though. I think some of the problem is because the room is too dark at night, so I just ordered this adorable night light from HouseyHome on Etsy.

She really only fusses when she's tired or hungry. I would have to say my favorite time with her is when she first wakes up. She always wakes up with a big smile on her face!

 Our pediatrician said that we can start giving her food now. I know that babies don't get much nutrition from food at this stage and the game and that it's more for just practice. 
I'm going to start with Happy Baby Oatmeal and fresh steamed and mashed sweet potatoes mixed with breast milk. I'm still exclusively breastfeeding and seriously have a freezer stock of over 200 bags. I actually didn't think that I was going to make to two months let alone four months. 

I really can't imagine our lives without her in it. I can't even picture going back in time. Honestly, I think we'd be bored. Josh and I loved our time before having her but she is the element to our making our "family".
She is such a joy and blessing and I love watching her grow and change everyday! 

And let's just say that she has him wrapped around her finger.....




  1. She is so adorable and that smile is going to get you two in trouble!

  2. She is too cute! Such a sweetheart! I can't believe that she is 4 months already!!!

  3. She is too sweet! Jack stayed in our room in the pack and play till he was 6 months. It was weird because I was the one not ready to put him in his crib. Now he sleeps awful but when he wakes up I put him in our bed too. You gotta do what you gotta do to make it through! Love the night light! Super cute! I'm jealous of your stash of BM. I've never gotten enough to freeze. My supply was just not great no matter what I did. I'm trying to go until 12 months but at 9 months I've barely got anything. :(

  4. Soo sweet! And I love what you said about being bored without her. I don't have any babies and I always feel like, how could we fit someone else in! But then, here I am, parked on my couch doing mostly a whole lot of nothing :)

  5. I swear, she sounds so much like Clara - a happy baby who wakes up smiling and only cries when she's sleepy or hungry. What lucky ladies we are. Happy 4 months, Charlie!


Thank you so much for taking your time to leave a sweet comment. They make my day :)
