4 months old!

Hello there!
Chomping away!
Serious biting business!
What's going on?
Mom & me, just hanging out!


So another month has passed, it's just amazing what time is like with a baby!  We continue to love every minute with our handsome boy.  He loves to smile & is such a happy guy (though he does get his point across when he's hungry or tired).  He's starting to play with toys a lot more & is getting better at it.  He grabs for anything nearby & is figuring out that his hands & fingers are good for something other than munching on, though he still loves to fit as many as he can in his mouth.  I finally moved him to his crib at night, instead of just during the day time naps.  That was more of a mom convenience factor than him not being ready.  Plus we've had a break through in the sleeping department, after a week of sleeping through the night (a good 6-7 hours in a row) I finally started putting him down much earlier.  Last night he went to bed at 8:15 without a single peep . . . I couldn't believe it, what have we been doing . . . let the boy sleep already!!!!!  Though he did "peep" tonight I now know that his bedtime can be normal & he will benefit from the extra hours (so will mom & dad :>).  We are so grateful for his bright smiles, squeezable cheeks, & inquisitive looks!

I agree with Jennifer, his hair does look like it is getting lighter. He is a cutie. Can't wait to meet him. But what will he think of his Grandma "G"???

He is SO adorable. It is so funny because we did the same thing with Kelsi. We were keeping her up until like 9-10pm and one day, I just put her down early and she just SLEPT! Little by little she goes to bed earlier and earlier. She's in bed by 7:30pm now and goes for 11-12 hours. It is so nice when babies love their sleep! Here's to alone time with our husbands!

Good for you, you figured out the sleeping thing much sooner than I ever did! My first stayed up until at least 10 pm! We couldn't figure out why he cried all of the time, poor kid! Yea, I was doing it all wrong. Troy is such a cute little guy!
