To my dear sweet Kaia,
You turned 4 months old last week. It's be a whirlwind just like everyone says it is. "Enjoy every second because it goes so quickly." "Don't blink you might miss something." "Enjoy it." I am enjoying "it." I'm enjoy it more than you will ever know. You are a light. You make my heart so happy.
You've grown a lot this last month. Everything you hear about the fourth trimester is true. It's a time of waking up to the world both for mama and baby. The haze of birth and adjustment is beginning to lift. It was not a bad haze or an unenjoyable haze but rather just a time where I was getting to know you and you were getting to know me and we were getting to know our new world together. You really are amazing. From the second you opened your eyes on the day you were born you had an aura of "I've got this." And got this you do. You are mastering new skills each day with ease and enjoying every second of it.
You can roll over like a champ.
You were working on it for a few weeks and you finally got it while we were in mommy and me class last week.
You love to talk. I think your working on 'hi'. I might even count it as your first word! Your Auntie Caitlin heard you say when she was over the other day.
As you've woken up to the world around you, you've discovered your big brother and future best friend...Frankie! You guys love each other. He can't wait until you can crawl around with him. But for now he's happy just to lick you when mama's not looking.
Last weekend you went to the ocean for the very first time. It was a beautiful day. We meet Damon, Sofie and Noah for lunch and walked around Manhattan Beach. We will be spending many many days to come there.
And this weekend your took your first boat ride! You LOVED it!
Daddy loved it too!
I can't help myself with the sleeping pictures. Your little face makes my heart so happy.
You are learning to sleep in your crib. Last week your graduated from the cosleeper because you can roll over. It took a few days of of practice but now you are rocking it.
Mama still loves cuddling you in bed in the mornings and for naps.
You started laughing! Your daddy made you laugh for the first time during a family nap yesterday. Oh my heart.
Sofie is your best friend...
...and there is nothing more fun in the world than your toes.
We've been taking a lot of walks around the neighborhood and at the park.
This afternoon we meet your "boyfriend" Edward and his mama Gaby at park for a playdate.
I think you love him.
And I love you. I love you more and more every second.
Thank you for letting me be your mama.
