Hunter: Four Months

We regressed a little in our sleeping habits. We had you on a solid schedule of going to sleep at 7:30- 8:00 pm and sleeping till 6am.  Now you wake up around 10:30 pm-- just as I am drifting off to sleep.

The epic nap from 9:30 am- noon has gone the way of the dodo bird.  Now you sleep in 20 minute increments-- which means I have become really good at getting a shower, dressed, hair done and make up on in  19 minutes.

You have really taken an interest in your toys.  You'll reach out and grab them and shake them around for 15 seconds.  Then you drop it and look around helpless until someone picks it up for you.  Your new favorite toy is Frank the Elephant.

Something else you have really taken to is screaming.  You aren't angry or frustrated;  you just learned that your volume can go up.  And you think it is hysterical.  Daddy and I don't find it as funny.

You have really developed a laugh this month and you laugh a lot around you Dad.  He is totally your buddy.

The drool keeps coming like a faucet.  We change just as many bibs as we do diapers.

We are getting a little better with tummy time.  Daddy discovered that you might not realize you can look up, so he propped you in the Bumbo seat and dangled a toy above you.  Ever since, you have gotten sooo much better with tummy time.

You got to meet your cousin Alexi last week.  She was all about you.  You couldn't really be bothered.  

But you did try to hold her hand, which was the most precious thing in the world.

I finally packed up the last of your 3 month clothes and got out all your 6 months outfits.  Seriously dude stop growing, because it's making me super sentimental and I may have choked back a couple tears as I folded the onesie with the puppy paws printed on it.  

Always & Forever,

He is so handsome. And the last photo of the two littles holding hands warms my heart. Love it!
