Happy 4 months!

Dear Little R, 
I know I say this every month - but I can't believe I have a four month old! It really does go so fast. 

Yay for 4 months!

Love to smile but not sure what to do with my tongue

You have been growing like a little weed! We go to the doctor on Tuesday to get your official stats but I am thinking you are around 12lbs and 25 inches (per my own measurements).  You have found your voice and it is so cute when you are talking to me! I love it so much - sometimes you just have sooo much to tell me.  You found your hands really early in this month and sometimes you just stare away at them. You really love sucking on them and make such a rukus while doing so. You also found your feet but are less intersted in those at this time. Sometimes when you lay on your back, you kick your little legs so much - you look like a little ninja. You did roll over once earlier in the month but you haven't done it since so I am not sure that was on purpose.  Your favorite toys these days are a little green ball that you grip and little plastic play rings. We built your activity center and you really enjoy playing in that as well. You are still to small for it so I have books underneath so your feet don't dangle. We also have to move you around in it so that you can see all the fun things to play with. We started using your Bob stroller and you love it! You can fit into it without your car seat. Bob loves it too - you both ride in it while mommy pushes it!
Over the past month your routine had adjusted so that you wake up around 7am--there are still some 5:30am mornings but for the most part you sleep till 7am. A couple of times you have even slept until 8:30! You also take your last bottle at 10pm regardless of your last feeding. You have no interest staying up past 10pm and you let us know that. You usually take an hour and sometimes two hour nap midday and you still take a mini-snooze between each feeding which is nice for mommy. You still get a bath every night with daddy and absolutely LOVE it! I can't wait until the summer because I think you will be such a little water baby!

Sticking out my tongue

You grabbed some leaves and stuck them right into your mouth - in true boy form

Sticking out your little lizard tounge

Here I go sucking my fist

Ok mommy I am DONE with the picture taking....
We took another flight down to Houston and you did great. Flying is pretty easy so far - we have another trip coming up in December so hopefully it will go just as well.

Thumbs up:
- Getting up in the morning = BIG smiles
- Bouncer & Swing
- Activity Center - you love the bird and will even reach out to hit it. The panda's on the see-saw make you jump every time they go up and down -it's really funny!
- Green grip ball & play rings
- Bath time with daddy
- Bob

Thumbs down
- Getting into car seat 
- Waiting on your nightly bottle to be warmed

Here are some fun pics from the past month!
