I will probably feel like this every month, but four months is definitely my favorite age so far! After five weeks, Hazel is finally coming out of the big developmental growth spurt she was going through at three months. She is less fussy, more willing to take naps (although she will rarely sleep longer than 40 minutes anymore) and she has come out the other side a more curious and engaged baby.
Travis noted that before this mental leap, she was curious, but unable to act on her curiosities. NOW, when she sees something she is interested in, she tries to interact with it. She will lean, tilt or roll toward her toys and puts anything she can find in her mouth. She complains if we leave the room and perks back up once she has someone in her sight. Everyday, her personality shines through more and more. She’s so much fun and I know it’s only going to get better!
