On this day, 4 months ago, at 11:00 am, I gave birth to Naomi's beautiful baby sister, Sadie Marie Marish, weighing 4lb 15 oz and 16.5 inches long. I kissed her on her sweet forehead and griminced at her sweet newborn cries.
It feels like yesterday that I was being wheeled in to the OR by the nurses & DR. I remember that day, passing a newborn baby girl just a few hours old and thinking awe, that is going to be me very shortly. Oh how I wish I can do it all over again.
At 4 months old, Sadie can:
smile, smiles at mommy, grandma and others. She has the prettiest smile ever. When she smiles, her whole face lights up and she just gets besides her self. It is by far the cutest.
laugh!: Just a couple days shy of turning 4 months old, Sadie surprised mama by laughing at a weird sound when I was changing her diaper! She only did it 2 other days once in a row, but I am sure as this month goes by, I will hear more baby laughter, music to my ears! Oh I just get all giddy hearing her little laughs, so cute and amazes me those noises come out of my little girl.
can hold her head up pretty good & looks around & is aware of things alot more!:She will turn her head alot and look around at things in the house or when out. It is just so crazy in so little time how one can change and how much she can learn. She also is on to sucking her little thumb to calm her down & have her be at peace with herself. She holds and plays with her little blankey and will figure out a way to put her thumb into her mouth & soothe herself to sleep, melts mamas heart!
She also does very well at tummy time, will go for a few minutes & then wants to be picked up by mommy. I noticed alot that she has become a LOT less colic, I'd say it pretty much has gone away.
The other day, she slept 6 straight hours after mama put her to bed for the first time in her own little thing. It felt great that I was able to do that yet sad because she is growing up way too fast.
My little Sadie is 4 months old! WIll have her 4 month old checkup tomorrow :( having to see her get those shots, pains me, but it keeps her from being a sick little girl often! I am curious on how much she weighs! I am guessing around 12.5 lbs. Last visit at the special doctor for her kidneys she weighed almost 10 lbs !
