4 months, 4 inches, and a touch more than 6 pounds later…

and while Sophia Grace is still wee (25.5″ long and 14.2 lbs. of baby love), she’s a heck of a lot less wee than she was when we started this journey of family making. She’s no longer a vaguely outlined jellybean or a heavily pixelated jawline or a scrunch-faced newborn. She’s become a cross-country traveler, a curly-haired-mohawk chica (still with a touch of a comb-over, but an adorable comb-over in our opinion), a very vocal music appreciator, an eater of books and fingers and shirts and pretty much anything else she can fit in her mouth, a gazer at trees, a roller, a brow-furrower, a laugher, and so much more. We can’t imagine our lives without her.
