4 Months, a Little Late...

Sorry I've been MIA. We're right smack dab in the middle of teething and a growth spurt.

Plus, T is with my sister wife.

Needless to say, we're both worn out.

I finally got around to taking Cali's 4 month pictures today. I only had about 5 minutes of good mood time then it was back to eating and sleeping. So, I'm not thrilled with these but I figured if I waited too much longer she'd be 5 months and that would defeat the purpose...

So here we go.





She's constantly chewing on either her bottom lip or her fingers.

Also, pardon the drool.



This one is blurry but I love that smile.


We just got her Bumbo seat (which she's sitting in) and she's not quite sure what to do with it.





You might notice this gorgeous "backdrop" Cali is laying on.

Here's another look...




It is a fantastic baby blanket by Candy Kirby Designs.

T surprise ordered it for me and it just came in. We loooooove it.

Also, look. at. this.


I'm not sure you can see it that well but MY BABY HAS TEARS!!!!

I saw them today and my heart broke.

Naturally, I took a picture.


She was in the middle of tummy time but growing and teething is hard work!

She got tired.

The past 2 days we've pretty much stayed in bed. It's been storming here plus she's eating every 45 minutes and sleeping the rest of the time.

On a completely unrelated note, the off season will be here in just over a month.

Don't be deceived, however. My sister wife follows us wherever we go.

I cannot believe how quickly these past 4 months have passed. I'm really trying to soak up the little moments because it's just starting to hit me how quickly she's changing. Being a mom has been the most amazing experience of my life. She's a true game changer. She's completely changed the way I love and shown me depths of myself that I've never known. 

I worried so much about how my marriage would change with a baby. I read all of these horrible statistics about how the odds of divorce skyrocket after you have children but for me I've fallen more in love with T than I ever knew possible watching him as a dad. She doesn't know it yet but she's a very blessed girl to have him in her life.

Well, I'm sleep deprived from this whole growth spurt so I'm heading to bed. I have some more things floating around in my head that I want to write about but they will have to wait for another day.

Lastly, I'll leave you with this gem...



Until then.
