Sweet sweet baby girl.. you're just 4 months away from your first birthday... and we have no idea where all this time has flown. We can say, without a doubt... that this stage that you're in... is our absolute FAVORITE stage. Everyday you learn something new... show us a new part of your personality... and we just adore it all.
You are full of smiles, day in and day out... even when you were plagued by the Norovirus this month... in between throwing up, you still managed to pass little smiles our way. Yes, you cry... especially when you can't play with our phones, or when we tell you "No."... but, most of the time, you are the happiest girl. You and your sister joke/fool around constantly... it's like you feed each other with laughs... Your laugh is pretty contagious... especially when it's from deep down in your gut.
Lets talk about your tongue... it's constantly sticking out of your mouth these days. Just another thing that you do, that is so you right now... because we definitely didn't teach you that.
You still have no teeth... not sure why nothing has popped out yet. We have this feeling that when one pops out, they're all going to pop out at the same time.... and it's going to be a LONG night. In the meantime, we'll continue to enjoy your constant drooling.
This face (above) is the one you give to most strangers... if they start talking to you, startle you, or are too loud, you immediately cry.. unless Mommy is holding you. You have some serious stranger danger... which is opposite of what we're used to... your sister has never met a stranger in all her life. The good news is, is that with some time, you usually warm up to unfamiliar faces.
Your sister on the other hand, is your best friend... you cannot get enough of Charlotte. You will sit and play with her for many minutes which feels like hours. You love her dolls, her performances/singing, flipping through her coloring books, and especially pulling her hair...
Marley... you keep us on our toes, and we wouldn't have it any other way. You are one adventure seeking little baby. Ready for whatever is coming your way... and we can't wait to share more and more adventures with you...
We love you dearly,
Daddy, Mommy, Charlotte and little baby Davis
