Larkyn 4 months

The time is seriously flying!  I haven't sat down to blog in over a week!!  I'll try and catch up at some point, but for now I will just write about my little Larkyn.  She is 4 months tomorrow!  Woah!  I am seriously soooo in love with this little girl. Her smile melts my heart.

Things I love about Larkyn:

Her dimple
Her eyes
Her crazy hair
Her strong neck
Her "always" smile
The way she sucks her thumb
Her cuddles for Daddy

Her cuddles for Mommy
The way she puts up with her silly siblings who like to do silly things to her
Her go-with-the-flow personality
The way she intently watches her siblings at swimming lessons...or anywhere else...
Her joy
and most of all - her smile!!!  *Photo Credit: Angela Ross Photography*
This month Larkyn is just on the brink of giggling as well as experimenting with her voice (just as of the last week).  Here is a little video of what I was able to catch -

She is doing great in tummy time, and will most often role over right away on her back (due to her heavy head!)  However when she does manage to stay on her tummy she is quite focused in watching her siblings play as in this video.

Larkyn is still a champ sleeper, sleeping a full stretch from 8pm to 7am or 8 am every night.  This month she started crib naps (transitioned from swing naps or bjorn naps) and is doing great.  She will fall asleep on her own in her crib once at 9am and sleep for 30-60 minutes, once at 1 or 2 pm and sleep most of the afternoon (sometimes waking to feed once in the middle), and then one more short crib nap around 6:30pm.  We are often out and about for some mid-morning activity/swimming lesson/BSF/playdate/errand/etc between 10am and 1pm so she usually does a mid-day short nap in the bjorn or carseat.  She eats around 8am, 11am, 1pm, 5pm, and 8pm.  She really never cries unless she is hungry or tired, and even then will stop crying almost immediately when picked up.  She is such an easy, sweet, smiley, cuddly, perfect-in-every-way baby that is growing up way too fast ;).   I love you so much Larkyn Emery!!! Each day you are more fun and I am SO thankful God chose to give YOU to US!  Happy 4 months, baby girl!
