Four Months Old

Dear Giuliane,

Personality is what I think of when I think of how you've changed this month. Your really starting to get one my lil peanut. I have to laugh at myself because when I think of you and your ‘big personality’ I’m reminded of your cousin Alyza when she was a baby and her videos that were sent from CA. ‘King Bubby’ always talked about how much personality she had while the rest of us just stared blankly at the television and a googly albeit cute ~ baby.

This month was highlighted with another trip to Pittsburgh / Ligonier. You finally got to meet your Uncles!!! I still giggle that Uncle Randy’s first comment was on your hairstyle ~ leave it to the hairdresser in the family to notice your lil fauxhawk.

Also important, your daddy and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. You went and hung out in Arlington with Miss Becky (and by default her kind roommate Erin). We had brunch at one of our favorite places, the Market Inn, then walked around the National Arboretum. It was so nice to just be the two of us for a few hours, but we couldn’t help but consistently think of the day when you’ll be able to stroll around with us and enjoy the flowers and big trees.

We also went to the Centreville Days fair, apple picking, and you got to enjoy your first ever Steelers game on TV. Clearly your quite at home with the Steeler crowd already.

But more about you... You giggle is still infectious. So much so that we had to video-tape it and sent it off to friends and family alike.

You’re also starting to get the hang of this sitting thing. You def like the comfort of being propped up on the sofa or in between our legs, but if given the opportunity you can hang on your own for a few seconds. In fact, just the other day, your lil Buddha belly proved strong enough to pull yourself up from a semi-reclined position into a full sitting one. THEN you even hung out long enough for me to run and get the camera and smiled for a picture.

Your also becoming very intrigued by food. You watch us eat it and love to smell smells. Especially good wine and fruits. But who can blame you there. I imagine that by the ripe ol age of 4 or so, you'll have quite the snobby palate. No chicken nuggets for you lil one!

But the best of all is that you really know how to love your Mommy and Daddy. I’ve just begun to feel comfortable leaving you in others care (be it the gym, church or with friends) For the most part you are great in their care, but its your sheer joy upon seeing us return that makes every moment being away from you worth it. It’s like coming to get you first thing in the morning all over again.

But don’t worry, I’m storing up these moments of great joy for when your 11 and can’t stand the sight of me.

I’ll never get tired of you,
