Happy Four Months, Callie!
You are such a precious and sweet baby, and I can't imagine loving you any more than I do. Your daddy and I think you are the greatest thing that's ever happened to us, and we feel so lucky that God has entrusted us to take care of you and raise you!
You love to sit in your jumper and play with toys. It's been so fun to watch you learn to use your hands! You like to read books and are pretty happy entertaining yourself, but also love to be held. You are starting to put everything in your mouth and have just started to roll over from your tummy to your back! You love to keep your eyes on your mom, all day long. Everywhere we go, people comment on how cute you are. Your favorite way to fall asleep is in mommy's sling. Your grandparents are crazy over you. People say you look like your mom. Other people say you look like your dad (and have the same expressions and smile). You have a record number of Aunts and Uncles that love you (4 and 3...and counting)! You sleep with your mouth open when you are totally out (just like dad)! Mommy loves to dress you in little cute dresses and says you are her little doll. Daddy loves to play with you, and you've started to whimper when he puts you down (already daddy's little girl). You make the cutest little singing noises and your giggle is the best sound we've ever heard. Whenever we bring you close to our faces, you open your mouth all the way like you're trying to eat us (dad says this is her "only defense"). You're starting to whine and not just cry to communicate; it's cute.
