Lilah: Four months old!  Time is flying by.  You giggled this week for the first time.  I was the only one there to hear it and, boy, was it adorable!  I teared up a little because I was so touched by how sweet you were as you laughed so happily.  You have starting using a pacifier this week, as well.  You look so cute with your big eyes peeking out over it.  You have been having lots of conversations with stuffed animals--especially this zebra toy that you seem to like.  It's more like squawking than talking, really.  You sound half happy, half angry, as if you and Zebra really have some important things to work out.  You are also starting to roll your legs to the side, which makes me think you will be rolling over in the next month.  All of these milestones are going to start coming more and more quickly.  I'm trying my best to savor every one.
