4 months


You are 4 months old today!  I love you so, so much.  I can't even tell you.  I love you more today than yesterday.  It just grows more and more each day!  You are so cuddly, giggly, and loveable.  You know we're Mommy and Daddy now, and it makes us so happy when you smile at us.  Your wide open mouth smile is the sweetest thing every morning!  Daddy and I both come in to wake you up every morning.  Sometimes you're already awake and just kicking your feet around and talking, but sometimes you're still asleep.  You're the sweetest thing ever either way.

Sleep has been amazing from 3-4 months.  This month you (usually) sleep from 8:30 pm-7:15 am.  There are some nights we don't get you in bed until later and some mornings when you wake up earlier, but you're always up by 7:30.  We have to spend time with you before we leave for work.  Our morning routine is still the same.  We cuddle for a few minutes, I nurse you, Daddy makes breakfast, I get ready, then we all play until it's time to leave for work.  You're so happy in the mornings!  A few nights this past week, you have decided to wake up at 4 or 5 am, and we're not quite sure why.  Maybe it's another infamous growth spurt.  Hopefully after we start giving you some oatmeal or rice cereal you'll stay asleep until 7 or so again.

Your personality is really starting to show.  You LOVE attention.  If we so much as look at you, make a sound, smile at you, give us a huge grin.  You laugh so much if we tickle you or blow on your tummy.  It's so darn cute.

We love to hold you, especially your daddy.  He's a "holder."  I have to make him put you down for some blanket/tummy time every now and then.  It still melts my heart when you lay your head on my shoulder or grab onto me while I hold you.  I never wanna put you down either.

You're a very content little guy, unless you're hungry.  Then you get cranky,  just like your mommy ; )  But you really are such a good spirited little fella.  It's kinda scary how fast you seem to be growing.  It's amazing how aware you are of your surroundings now.  We continually pray for you as you keep growing up.  We are so blessed to have such a healthy, happy baby.  You make us want a whole house full of babies if they would all be like you!

Here are your 4 month stats from your appt. this morning:

Weight:  15.56 lbs, 55%
Length: 25 in., 46%
Head Circumference: 16.5 in, 61%.

It was way too easy to get you to smile for your 4 month pictures this morning.  Thanks for being such an awesome baby!  And thank you, Lord, for letting us love on sweet Wilson every day!  We are truly counting our blessings this Christmas season!

We love you baby boy!  Love, Mommy and Daddy
