Goldie Bird is four months old!
... teething. She has two little fangs trying to come through just in time for Halloween. I can see and feel her canines through the side of her gum. Baby vampire. Perfect. Despite cutting teeth, she is still the most mild-mannered, delightful baby.
... laughing. Big, deep, from-head-to-toe chuckles. It's my favorite sound in the world. She is super ticklish sometimes, and will giggle and giggle. A few times, she's just started laughing out of the blue and she thinks Afton is hilarious. It's the best!
... a snuggle bunny. She loves to be held close and tight. When she gets a little restless, she will settle right down as soon as something soft and warm is touching her face. She wriggles her blankets up over her head often - she just loves the feeling of blankets on her cheek. She likes to nuzzle right into my neck, and often buries her little face in my hair. Afton used to do the same thing. I don't know why -- but it's adorable.
... so beautiful. I truly have strangers stop me in the grocery store to comment on how beautiful she is. Her skin is so milky white and her cheeks are the perfect baby round. She is gorgeous.
... so strong. She is constantly trying to sit up. She does this impressive little crunch and lifts her head, trying with all her might to get upright when she's laying down. She has a tight grip and has figured out how to grab onto things and pull them to her. She is so fascinated with everything within her reach.
