4 months old?

"Where did my newborn baby go? Did it really go by this quickly?" I have been asking myself this a lot lately, especially when we go to church and 3 new babies are born and I see just how tiny they are.

I miss him being so tiny, but I am LOVING all his new things he is figuring out. This has been such a fun stage for us. ( I especially love that he is still my snugly boy, a lot of people told me he would grow out of it by now, but I think like most things about him, he takes after his papa on this one too, and will be a snugly guy forever)

He had his 4 month check up on December 3oth and
weighed 14.5 lbs and is now 24 1/2 inches long!

He is in the 40th percentile all around.

He is not quite as big as a lot of the babies in our families but he is catching up. :)

Some of his new things this month are...

He talks a lot! Or rather jibber jabbers a lot. Its cute and I love it.
He loves it when you play peek-a-boo with him, and will laugh so hard he gets hiccups EVERY TIME. (poor guy) Unfortunately, he gets that from me, and if anyone has heard my hiccups you would be sad for him too...

He loves raspberries (no not the fruit, tho I am sure he would love them if I let him try them, the spit with your mouth kind) For the longest time this was pretty much the only thing he would smile at, that and "Delicious Muffins" :) But now he has started to do them back to us. He really likes it when Kory Beat boxes at him, but not me, just daddy, I think its because I am not good at it :)

He has finally figured out how to get those hands to work for his benefit! I am so happy for him, but sometimes this is hard for me, because he'll grab at my measuring cups while I am cooking or my glass of water, or my fork. Then when we don't give it to him and let him have some of what we are eating, he gets sooo ticked! Its funny in a way, but its going to be a long two more months for us before solids can be introduced.

He rolled over twice, but that's it. He doesn't see the need to do so just yet. He usually just lays his head down and sits there. Then he'll look up at me smile and then lay his head back down:) He'll get it one day.

I am pretty sure he is teething, or growing or something. Because his sleep has been out of whack lately. This has been hard for EVERYONE, so we are off to bed, even tho it is still early to try to catch some much needed z's.

So cute! He is one handsome little guy!

I think that Shane is going through a growth spurt too, because he is up literally every two to three hours at night and is eating like crazy all day.

I love Axels hat, it is SO him :)

I keep having weird dreams that I'm pregnant again.... AAAAAAAAAA...

Luckily those dreams are SO NOT TRUE.

And props to Kelli for making that hat!

I love seeing his progress - good job little guy. Your comments are a little hard to read on the new background though - maybe it's just me.

How did I miss this post? His skull jammie/mohawk hat combo is pretty rad.
My kids get the hiccups if they laugh at all, too...and then they puke. It's all fun and games until someone gets the hiccups, and that's usually two seconds within having fun.

he is so stinkin cute! i love holding him, he's such a light weight compared to my little tank. I was surprised with how much jerome liked playing with him, he usually doesn't like other babies.
His smile is pretty awesome. i love it.

Rainey, i remember babysitting Riley over at your house once and we were playing on the purple rocking horse you had and she started laughing so hard and she looked at me and said, "uh oh, im gonna barf" then she ran in the bathroom and threw up. it was pretty funny.

Love that little dude! Such cute pictures. Good luck on the teething thing that's always a little rough but so cute when they eventually break out.

Jill said...

Ditto, Kory. Props should go to Kelli on that hat. Awesome.

Amy! Thanks for the "congrats" you sent my way. Yes, I am really only three months away (due April 23); we kept it on the d.l. until christmas if you can believe it. After the miscarriage...anyway, I pretty much waited until I could tell people were speculating. We don't know what we're having and are really excited for the surprise. Little Axel has me excited for one of my own! (And, after almost seven years of marriage, it will be nice to have people stop bugging us about having kids already!)

I totally just took a trip down blog memory lane and life was a lot more interesting when my address was in Provo!!!!!!!

As soon as ya'll get a free night that you want to get together just let me know :) We are down for anything.

He is so handsome (as Maggs would say). Love the hat and his smile! I want that pretzel recipe, looks yummy. I don't know how you can have stuff like that in your house when you don't eat sugar. I would eat it for sure!

Oh my gosh he is sooooo adorable!
I Love Him!!!
The hat is way too cute on him~
