Happy 4 Months Old, Lilah!

Lilah months old today, no way! That flew by! I take her to the doctor next week for her 4 month well visit, and I’m pretty sure the doc will tell me that we’ve got a healthy baby.

Lilah continues to be a happy camper. She recently started to laugh, more like giggle, it is the cutest sound ever…I am on a mission to get it on video asap so you can hear it :-)

She was sleeping through the night, but now has regressed…but this last week it’s only been to get up once right around 2-2:30ish, then once she eats she goes right back down. I hoping (and praying) it’s just a growth spurt and she’ll be back to sleeping through the night again soon.

At night, we all squeeze into Vivianne’s big girl bed and Lilah will listen as I read Vivianne bed time stories…she will just lay quietly on Vivianne’s pillow and watch and listen as I turn the pages. When Vivianne goes to bed, it’s just Lilah and I, and I swear to God she knows it :-) She’s probably thinking, “FINALLY! I’ve got Mom all to myself!” She has already learned to be so patient, to wait her turn, something her big sister never had to really learn, until now and let’s just say that’s still a bit of a work in progress (aahhheemmm, “a bit” may be an understatement).

I’m constantly reminded of the fact that Lilah has never been an only child, never had our undivided attention at her whim…and so during these times, at night, when it’s just she and I, I do my best to make her feel like she’s the only one.
