At four months, Clara is the smiliest baby you ever did meet (ahem, even though she’s not smiling here). And, more than that, her smile is mesmerizing—if you catch her smiling at you, you’ll lose your train of thought and your knees will go all weak and you’ll just beg the whole world to stop so you can take a moment to catch your breath and soak in her cuteness. Or maybe that’s just me. She rolls from her back to her tummy, but so far not the other way. She sleeps on her tummy (ALL night! A child who sleeps all night? What is this wonderful creature?). She has so much to say. So much. All the time. She sucks her thumb—both of them, actually, if she can manage it. She is incredibly patient with two rambunctious big brothers who are always in her space. How we love our laid back, sweet-natured little girl.
