The Golden Baby Age

  According to one of many baby milestone emails that I read, 4 months is the golden baby age.  The time when babies laugh lots and interact, look very cute, and stay in one place still, making them easy to handle.  It’s a very lovely age.  Baby E is now constantly pawing at faces and trying to either wolverine it off or lean in enthusiastically for a slobber on cheeks. He’s also under the impressing he has springs for legs.  The jumperoo is assembled and getting a good work out. E bounces away happily for ages squealing every so often.  I think he thinks we’re around for jumperoo-ing too, constantly wanting to bounce in our laps the minut we pick him up.

I’m also pretty sure teething has well and truly started.  We have rosey red cheeks and various degrees of poonamis through the week.   I forgot how you can have a baby in a very cute outfit one minute and then have to change them about 33 minutes later.  Sleeping is a bit more stable again, which is lovely! There are of course nights that are still a bit up and down but, on the whole, he is sleeping much better and that’s rather wonderful for my eye bags.  I now need to desperately get my hair cut and take my huge hat off that I’ve been donning for the past 4 months.   It does keep my ears and head wonderfully warm though so I think I’ll miss it.   

I think there’s lots more golden moments to come, 4 months is not the best of it.  There is the first crawl, the first words, the first steps, so many firsts.  Having a baby laugh heartily at your crap jokes is the perfect audience for any kind of self esteem boost though!  I’ve noticed he can roll over now and is putting a lot of effort into trying to get his foot into his mouth.  I’m making a lot of effort in trying to capture that moment.  Another first. Any day now…I think!

  1. he is resting on your lovely blanket from TBaM! I love baby feet they are so cute and squidgy. Those early months are so precious – enjoy them and don’t worry about your hair, plenty of time in the future to worry about how your hair looks x x

  2. Can’t believe four months have gone already. I liked four months with H. He started to be able to sit up at 4.5 months (the only big physical milestone he made early), so he was a lot less floppy and more robust which I liked. Plus as you say he was still in one place. Plenty more fun to come though.

  3. I think four months is a lovely age and it is definitely good when they can’t move as it all goes crazy from there. ;0) But I did find myself with both the girls thinking oh I never want this stage to end and then the next stage being just as lovely. Although of course each stage brings its different challenges. x

  4. Oh I love those little baby feet, so gorgeous! There are so many ‘golden ages’ I think. I love the newborn stage when you don’t want to put them down. When they start interacting more is great and I am loving the stage we are at now where Baby A really is getting her own little personality. So much fun which definitely outweigh the lack of sleep and grumpy teething. We are very lucky 😀
