All the Frills: Four Months and Plugging Along

Guys – Eleanor is older now but here are her four month-old photos. I mean, objectively, she’s a damn cute baby. She also recently came down with her first cold, unfortunately. Baby's first cold is no joke - she was utterly miserable while her immune system figured out how to deal with it and I was sick myself and just wanted to rest and, of course, couldn't because Eleanor was so upset. So it made for a pretty ugly week around my house. But we knuckled down and got through it and now she's all smiles and giggles again.

Here are the things she's infatuated with these days:

  • The dancing fox on her activity mat (we call it Dancing Foxy)
  • Making a lot of insanely high pitched noises as she explores her "voice" (we now refer to her as the Queen of the Porpoises)
  • Sleeping - we're trying to get her on a daytime nap schedule (she fights us on that and is still all over the map, making my life difficult because I never know when, or even if, I'll have a bit of free time to do all those luxuries like eating and showering) but she's an awesome overnight sleeper and regularly goes down from 10 pm to at least 4:30 am and oftentimes to 6 or even 7 am (thanks Satan!)
  • Looking at herself in a mirror and just giggling for a solid 30 minutes

She still HATES being on her tummy but we diligently have tummy time every day. I'm hoping that any day now she'll be ready to start rolling...and then I'll basically have to alter how I do everything but it will be a huge milestone.

I love her cute little jammies! My little guy is obsessed with alligators lately and giving kisses (to basically anyone and everything)!

I'm obsessed with the Winchester Mystery House! Thanks for sharing this article!

These are great milestones! It is crazy how much they learn at this age. My son is 6 months old now but reading your post I remember how he was the same.

I am following you on Instagram. Did you want to do the IG Challenge?

Goodness, she is really adorable! Sorry you were both sick - that is never fun, but I'm glad it's back to giggles now. Good luck when she decides she's ready to be mobile!

Ugh, first cold, I can only imagine - and even worse that it happened when you were sick, too. But if nothing else, I suppose it teaches you just how much you can suffer through and still survive ;)

I just read that article on the Ark... I am in full awe.
