Four Months Old and Rolling Around

BOSTON, MASS. -- One of these days I'll think of something else to blog about besides monthly baby progression. Until then, here is another round of baby updates as this little lady hits the four month mark!

Oh, I love this girl.
Four Month Stats:
  • 17.9 pounds
  • 26 inches long (95 percentile for both)
Yes, she is a tall and chunky one. She is already wearing 6 month clothing and has been for a month. I tried putting a pair of her 3 month leggings on her the other day and they looked ridiculous. 

Firstly, Marin reached a major milestone when she rolled over last Sunday. Isaac and I were both watching her at the time, mesmerized by the weird way she swings her legs to move herself around, when she suddenly overextended her legs and flopped right over. It took her a few seconds, but she started crying. I don't know if it was because Isaac and I scared her to death by cheering so loudly or if she scared herself by flipping over.  Either way, it was cool to witness this defining moment. She no longer thinks its torturous to be on her tummy, as she once did just a few weeks ago. Hallelujah!

I know I'm biased, but isn't she the cutest thing ever? I mean, come on... look at that face!

I'm such a geek and am constantly in awe over the cute things she does and darling noises she makes. This morning she figured out how to smack her lips together repeatedly. It made me laugh so hard watching her do it, that she stopped doing it to watch me laugh. And then she gave me a huge smile and started doing it again. I think she's figured out how to dig into my heart a little deeper every day.

This past weekend we finally had nice weather (geesh was it a long winter or what!), and decided to take Marin on her first train ride into the city to explore. She was completely fascinated by the train station, and wouldn't stop moving her eyes around once we boarded the train. But in true baby fashion, ten minutes in and the train's rickety movements had lulled her right to sleep, where she pretty much stayed asleep the entire time we wandered the Public Gardens and Boston Commons.

At the Wellington "T" station waiting for our train to take us downtown.
On the train ride home. She made lots of new friends.
The girl is still a chunk.  But I'm always reminded of how small she still is when I see Isaac holding her. She's also happy most of the time, which amazes me. She sleeps anywhere from 10-11 hours consecutively each night, which thrills me to no end!  She's still growing up way too fast (nerdy of me to say, I know)! I love this curious stage she's currently in and can't wait to see what she learns next month. 

These two kill me!

from Lorena: She's looking more and more like you.
No more excuses for posting about her and gushing...it comes with the territory and I expect nothing less! I would be disappointed if you weren't posting about her. And she IS adorable, so you are totally justified.
I seriously can't believe she sleeps 11 hours straight at night. You are soooooooo lucky.

Hey there girlfriend! I sure do love your posts and pictures about your cute little one! You are such a darling mom to that little girl. She is so lucky to have you and Isaac there to cheer her on even if it makes her cry! ;)
