Alexis turned 4 months old today. In the past month, Alexis has spent so much time playing with her hands, grabbing and reaching for things. Her head and neck control has gotten even better, and she’s able to face forward in her Baby Bjorn now, which daddy loves. She props herself up on her elbows during tummy time, can reach for things in front of her while she’s on her belly, and can roll onto her back when we put her on her side or almost on her tummy.
Alexis has also become quite the biter, gumming everything that ends up in her mouth and drooling everywhere. She’s started watching us eat with interest, following our forks with her little mouth hanging open like a baby bird. Today, we both agreed that we heard her truly laugh. Just once, and it was a lovely sound.
