Tomorrow marks Kathryn's 4 month-day and it has been an amazing ride.
Over the last month some fun and exciting events have taken place:
-Rolling over from back to belly and belly to back- she especially enjoys playing the roll over game with Mommy.
-Spending quality time with her Daddy. She is especially fond of singing songs from "Philadelphia Chickens" -(book and CD by Sandra Boynton) with Daddy. A favorite of theirs is "Cows".
-Night time tuck ins which include a feeding and prayers-weekday nights are done by Daddy and weekends are reserved for Mommy.
-Spitting up!-Miss Kathryn wears a bib a lot these days as she has a new affinity for tons of drool and spitting up.
-A somewhat regular sleep routine-Kathryn has been hitting the hay between 7-7:30pm and wakes up between 7-7:30am with one night time feeding. (Of course this in not always the case yet, but it is becoming more of the norm!) Paul and I have added a fun morning wake up song as we open the blinds in the morning. It ALWAYS brings a smile and an occasional giggle to Miss Kathryn. We are especially thankful to our friend Alisha who recommended the book "Good Night, Sleep Tight"- having a somewhat regular routine is key to LOTS and LOTS of smiles and fun times during Kathryn's waking hours!!!!
-Tons of sucking on anything she can get her hands on-Kathryn is especially fond of her colorful links and her vibrating grape teether!-(thank you Auntie Leslie-a long time friend of mine who is also an OT in early intervention)
-Sitting up with the assistance of Mommy or Daddy, or her Bumbo.
-A fabulous snow day to enjoy Kathryn today.
-Regular adult time in the evenings for Paul and I- we especially enjoyed our Superbowl dinner of homemade pizza and a beer.
It is amazing to look over the last four months and to see Kathryn's personality develop. A couple of nights ago after she went to bed, Paul and I were looking through all of the videos we have taken of her and we are amazed at the growth that has taken place in such a short period of time. In such moments we truly stand in awe amazing gift of human life that God gives us and to daily try and offer that gift back to God.
