Baby Milestones at 4 Months Old

In September last year, I was struggling with adjusting my new life with the arrival of the 'third' person who came in between my husband and me - our baby. Four months later, I am inseparable from this little person and could not bear spending few hours away from her. I am totally attached to her.

Baby Naomi just turned four months old yesterday and she is getting even more adorable than ever!

Happy 4 months old, girl!

She definitely can recognize my face and scent by now (she almost instantly stops crying whenever I hold her, believe it or not).

My sweet lady.

She can hold her head steady but can't sit without support.

She drools, blows bubbles and recently, really enjoys playing with her own saliva. She also makes noises like "Brrrrrrrrrrr" when she's busy exploring her saliva. If I don't stop her, a minute later - her mouth, chin and cheeks would be all covered with her saliva.

She coos or even squeals whenever her Dad and I talk or sing to her. Too cute!

I have no idea what her Dad does to make her laugh like this 
every time he plays with her.

She smiles and laughs a lot! Every adult loves her because of this.

Told ya!

She can grasp a toy but usually this doesn't last long as she loses her grip pretty fast too at times.

She puts almost everything into her mouth. Her fingers, my fingers, her clothes, her bibs, her toys... Everything that she can grasp will likely go into her mouth.

Your gums are so itchy, huh?

She can touch her own feet when she's lying on her back. What a little gymnast. Mommy can't even touch her toes right now - this is indeed a phenomenal task for an adult who barely exercises.

Kiss me once and you'll want some more.
Thanks to S-26!

The only thing that she's trying hard to accomplish now is rolling over. She's almost there in rolling her body from her back to tummy by herself. I can see this girl gets really frustrated when she's 90% rolled her body but can't quite perfectly accomplish this milestone just yet.

Oh, she's my perfect companion for gardening too.

Be a Mom. Be happy.

  2. Sorry I haven't been around since she was born. She is so beautiful. I am so glad to see her doing so well! Such a cute smile. I can see she looks like you in some pictures and your husband in other pictures.
