Four Months


It's funny because those first several weeks and months just flew by but now I can't even remember what life was like without him, so four months seems like forever ago. We've finally got our groove down, he's in such a great schedule. He's in bed between 7 or 7:30 and wakes up between 6 or 7 to eat then goes back to sleep for an hour or so. When I put him down he's so sweet to just lay there and drift off to sleep on his own. He never cries and sometimes I go in after about 15 or 20 minutes and he's just laying there with his little eyes wide open just blowing bubbles. He takes great naps now and is such a sweetheart. I quit nursing right after he turned 3 months, it was a little sad but my life is much easier now. At his check-up he weighed 15 lbs 3 oz (50%), was 26 1/4 in long (85%) and his head was 16 1/2 cm (45%). He spends most of the day smacking on his little hands and sticking his tongue out, and my lips pretty much spend most of the day attached to his soft chubby cheeks and I can't stop squeezing his squishy little body. It's sort of an obsession of mine and I can't get enough, not even close.

Yay for cute babies! Aiden is finally on a great schedule as well. I can't keep my lips off his cute cheeks either, well, excpet for when they are turned so his slobbery darling lips are on my cheeks! Love it!

You are so lucky - just pray he stays this way. Mags was pretty much the same way at his age, and then around 6 months, she started waking up twice in the middle of the night screaming to be fed. every night. she hasn't stopped. shoot me. by the way, I laughed so hard at all of jayden's antics. He makes me want a little boy :)

I love the tounge and those big brown eyes! Give him some extra snuggles for me. I'm just dying that I'm not going to be able to see him at Jennifer's wedding. Thanks for posting so many cute pictures. You'll have to let me in on all of your baby training secrets. Sounds like you have it figured out.

He really is one yummy baby, I can't handle his little giggles, he just melts my heart. Glad to hear he is doing so much better.
