At four months old, Trixie is a smiley, content baby. She likes to suck on her hands but hasn't yet started grabbing at things. She still has a lot of hair, but she's getting a bald patch (and a flat spot) in the back from lying down so much. She's also got a bit of receding hairline along the front. (Both the boys were basically bald by four months old, so I'm happy Trixie is keeping some of her hair.) She weighs over 15 pounds and has the cutest chubby cheeks, thighs, and arms, to show for it. This baby loves to eat. She also loves to stand and sit up with assistance.
Trixie's eyes are still blue, and they are such a light blue sometimes I'm sure they'll stay that color. The boys both had blue eyes for several months. Ike's eventually turned hazel, and Felix's eventually turned green. Eric and I both have brown eyes, so it will be interesting to see what happens with Trixie's eyes.
Trixie has the most lovely, perfect lips. See below.
We hung out with neighbors across the street earlier this week, and my friend snapped this picture of Trixie with her pouty lip. This is a new thing and happens frequently, even when she's not sad. Sometimes she sucks on her bottom lip when she is trying to fall asleep.
Trixie does not enjoy tummy time. Consequently, she has the aforementioned bald spot and flat spot. She also still does not roll over, and I don't really care.
Trixie still sleeps well at night, but it takes her a while to fall asleep. We do a jack-in-the-box routine where we are sure she's really down for the night this time, only to hear her crying a few minutes or an hour later. This happens nightly from about 8:30 to 11:30. We are about done with it.
Ike continues to adore Trixie, and she is finally taking notice of him. She is also interested in Felix, which I think makes him like her a bit more. Sometime in the last month I was pretending to be a monster with Felix. I told him I was going to eat his baby sister and he said, "You can't eat Baby! She's part of our family!"
We all love this baby girl and our so glad she is part of our family.
