4 months

I said "good morning" to my 4-month-old precious girl and thought about how I want to press the pause button and make this wonderful experience as a mommy slow down.

I mean, look at THAT face!

Why can't she stay this way forever?

And while I was talking to her, she rolled over and I thought, "hmmmm did she hit puberty already?"

This photo makes me laugh so hard.

At 4 months, Claire enjoys chewing on her fingers, and occasionally gagging herself.

She's started sleeping with a little blanket and loves wadding it up and burying her head in it while going to sleep at night. I'm trying to keep her from getting attached to just one, so we have 3 we rotate.

She's been consistently sleeping through the night, but this past week has stretched that to 12 hours. And, before you comment on how lucky I am, let me say, I've worked HARD for that. And, I'm sure there's some luck in there, too.

She's mastered the push-up and is rolling over occasionally.

She loves to "fly" and do anything that involves motion.

And, she's loved more than ever.
