     Today, Amara is 4 months old. What can I say? She is growing into such a funny little girl. She is all belly and hair! The smiles are still there, but now we have added our voice to the mix. I think she found it. It doesn't come out all that often, but when it does, it is loud, proud and oh so cute!

     She is definitely a people watcher. She is so alert and aware. She enjoys sleeping on her side. We don't quite have our head control down, but we are about 70% there I think. She can do tummy time and hold it up completely as she smiles because Gabe and I are usually screaming "YAY!!" We have our 4 month doctor's appt. on the 25th of this month, and I can't wait to see how much she weighs. She is definitely feeling heavier and squishier! I LOVE IT!! I pretty much kiss her chunky thighs everyday! Everywhere we go, we get stopped with things like "She looks like a doll!?!" "Look at all of that hair!!!" "She is such a beautiful baby!" and I think to myself.....WE DID THAT!?!? ( well, God did that) We still can't believe how much attention she gets. She is quite the show stopper, and I am not complaining.  I am so proud to carry her on my hip and show her off.

     One of my biggest prayers for Amara is that she grow up to just be a good person! I know it sounds so plain when you say it, but it seems to be harder than we think. I just want her to know who she is and it be GOOD! Obviously, this encompasses a lot of things, and I pray for so much more than this, but I just want her to light up people's lives! :) Ya know.....the same way she does mine!

Here are some other 4 month pics .....

She is continuously balling her hands up and either looking at them
or stuffing them in her mouth!

It is amazing how much I walk in and find her laying like this!

P.S. Babe, if you are reading this......( I know I will have to e-mail you the link because you don't read my blog), but I LOVE YOU and we have made it 4 months. You are the best daddy a little girl could possibly ask for! There is no man that will ever love her more!
