Months 3 and 4 with Carlota

How is Carlota already 4 months old?  Time needs to slow down..this girl is going to be headed to school in a blink of an eye.

Month 3

Carlota is constantly moving around and exploring the use of her limbs.  She doesn’t understand the concept of sitting still.  She started daycare 3 days a week and has adapted very well.  She made her first painting for us, and gets along well with her classmates and teachers.  She loves being swaddled for her naps and looking at herself in the mirror.  She is starting to learn how to roll over.  When she’s on her back she likes to roll onto her side, especially when there is a toy in her vicinity.  She is finally starting to take notice of her toys and Pinxo (our Boston Terrier).

We took Carlota to get her ears pierced.  She did so great! There were a couple of tears but as soon as she was comforted she calmed down and was back to her smiley self.  Carlota also had her first swimming lessons or introduction to the water.  This requires its own blog post since it was so magical and special for us.  She loved the water and floated with me just holding her head above the water,  She has also started loving bath time and post bath baby massage.

You can definitely tell that Carlota is undergoing her 4 month leap/growth spurt.  She is becoming more of a little girl and less of a newborn.  As much as I’m loving watching her grow and conquer all these milestones it makes me sentimental to think my baby won’t be my little baby forever.

Carlota has finally perfected the roll over and likes to do it all the time.  She won’t stay laying on her back for long, and quickly moves to her favorite tummy time position.  She is much more able to amuse herself on her play mat and with her toys.  This also means that she has graduated from sleeping all swaddled up to using her sleep sack.  She is still working on mastering this transition.

She loves chewing on our fingers and toys.  She is in full teething mode already.  Carlota is starting to be interested in what we are eating and drinking.  She loves to talk to us and complain and make bubbles.  She still hates the car and car seat, but has started to like the stroller.

Thankfully Carlota is still a mama’s girl….I’m hoping to keep that up forever!!
