Another month has come and gone and here I am posting over 3 weeks late about our little man’s month-iversary….
The weekend you turned 4 months officially, everything changed. You literally grew up right before my eyes. You started playing with toys. You latched on to a monkey shaped teether (“Coco”) and a burp cloth to no end. You seemed to finally see the world around you and experience it in a whole new way. Now you just grab everything and in your mouth it goes. Even including my face 🙂 but I love your kisses!
If you don’t have a toy, then you like to fold your hands across your chest and kick your legs up. And then even that changed once you found your toes. A toy connected to your chubby little legs! How fun! And so cute!
You always want to sit up if you’re even at a slight recline, you struggle to sit up all the way and once I hold you up, then you want to stand. And you sure love to stand. It’s wibbly wobbly, but your face lights up with big boy pride! You look around at us making sure we see your new trick. I see it, I see it all.
Your dad loves to lift you high in the air. It’s a trick that’s sure to get those gummy smiles of yours. I’m always waiting nearby ready to clean up the spit up but I sure do love watching you two play together. The best of friends.
Your sweet little coos have turned into deeper shouts and squeals. But we still hang on to every single word of those long monologues.
A few other random things I want to remember:
– holds bottle on his own-ish
– you love blankets, mostly to chew on but you love to play with them too
– I left you for the first time, for more than a couple hours (your dad and I went out on a Disneyland date night)
– loud noises still startle him, even from the mouths of little friends 😉
– Superman for Halloween, spent the evening at your godparent’s house and slept through trick or treating in the Ergo with Grammy.
Time is just flying by. I sure do love this age the best so far but I miss that little 6 pounder that fit so neatly in my arms. Everyday with you brings so much excitement, I look forward to each adventure!
