4 Months!

Oh little lad,y you are becoming more and more fun. You are seriously The most easy going baby I have ever met. You smile at everyone and everything. You have such a great schedule when we are home, with 2 three hour naps, but if we are out and you miss a nap or it gets cut to 45 min, you are still just as happy as can be.

This month you discovered your TOES- something so simple, but so sweet.

We started rice cereal a week ago, and you can't get enough! I can't wait to start making you baby food and watch as you explore new tastes. You love eating so much that I just know this next step will thrill us both!

You eat about every 3 hrs during the day- sometimes more sometimes less. I let YOU decide when you are hungry and let me know, it works out really well for us.

You have been rolling from tummy to back for a while but now you roll from back to tummy as well! Usually you get mad when you do it though so it's definitely not intentional yet!

You TALK. Lots of babbling and cooing. And you listen! My favorite thing is just holding you in my arms and listenening to you talk. Then you pause and wait for me to talk. After I say something you start talking more. I love our little conversations.

You are falling HARD for your brother. You adore him and your face lights up the second he walks in the door. I have no idea what we will do all day when he starts K next week and it's just the two of us.

Your hair. Your beautiful hair is starting to fall out. I literally started crying when I kissed the top of your head and got a mouth full of your gorgeous locks. I know it's just hair. And it will grow back. But it's a part of YOU, and I'm going to miss it.

Yesterday we had your 4 month shots (half of them, we are doing a delayed schedule with never more than two at a time) and you did so good. You only cried for about 2 minutes, then you wanted to cuddle, which of course I Loved.

Length 25.5 inches 91% (!!!)

  1. Not the hair! I can't imaging my daughter without it!

    1. Right?? Many tears have been shed. It's still hanging in there, but definitely a lot thinner. :(
