How did it happen?

When did my baby get to be so big? We just love this munchkin! I still remember when he was just "little" like this.

I'll take a picture and blog about it tomorrow... but for now this tired teacher mommy needs to go to bed.

4 months continued...

Here are his current stats at 4 months:

- 16 lbs. 15 oz.
- 26 1/4 inches

He loves to get things in his hands and hold them in front of his face and just study them! We also bought him an exersaucer and he loves it because he gets to stand all on his own. He still doesn't have a typical laugh but the doctor told us that he is laughing at us:). He seems to be doing just fine now that I've started work, better than me some days. I'm getting used to our new schedule and Adam is doing a great job as Mr. Mom! He still spits up a lot but since his weight is fine, they're not worried. We also started him on some rice cereal about a month ago and he is liking it. The only problem is that he hates being spoon fed and screams between each bite. I finally started making it thicker and putting in a bottle with a bigger nipple hole. He's much happier with that, but I hope he learns to like a spoon. Life just keeps going and we're so grateful to have our little family!

Here are some fun things he's doing:
Jabbering and squealing at kids and babies.
Holding his links and flicking them all over.
Getting his first mohawk, styled especially by daddy.
Playing with his toes and grabbing at his feet.
Razzing all the time and sucking on his bottom lip.
Charming everyone that sees him.... "What a cute baby!"
Triple threat thighs.
Sleeping about 9-10 hours a night.
Sitting up in the boppy.
