Four months already! Time flys when
you're having fun and boy, has it been fun! Can I just say that I LOVE
being your mom! And I LOVE getting to stay at home with our little
"Bean-er" Yes, we call you "Bean-er". I can just hear you saying
"Bean-er? What a terrible nickname." Well here's the story: We called
you our little jelly bean once...that went to bean, and then Dad started
calling you "bean-er". It started cute, okay. What it turned into...I
still shake my head at, but it seems to have stuck. What can I say? I
LOVE my little "bean-er"
So you're 4 months old.
Or...20 weeks. Or...technically 10 weeks. Whatever you want to go by.
You're growing so much. At your 4 month check up you weighed in at
11lbs 4oz. We we're pretty excited about that and the doctor was
pleasantly surprised at how well you are doing!
off...You sleep like a CHAMP! We'll put you down at 10:30 and you'll
sleep until 7 or 8. In fact last week you slept until 9:30! You're
parents appreciate this more than we can say! We feel incredibly
blessed and we realize we're spoiled beyond belief to have such a good
I kind of have to work for
the giggle. Your smiles you seem to be a little less stingy on. If
anyone says hi to you and gives you their undivided attention...you'll
give them a smile. And if they go as far to make any sort of noises
with their mouth or tongue...they are your new favorite person! You've
also been introduced to your first friend. Emma Cornelius. You two
don't really care much about each other now. You kind of just compete
for attention currently...but us parents think you're going to one day
be great friends.
started to discover your hands, you stare at them and you're starting
to swat at things. You're recognizing and starting to appreciate toys
now too! Where before we'd show you something with lights and moving
parts and music and you couldn't care less about it, now, however, you
think anything with contrasting colors is pretty cool.
still spit up quite a bit. And usually all over me or your dad. I
change my outfit at least once a day. And still almost always have
goobers all over my shoulder. I need to start adding a change of
clothes for me in your diaper bag! Aren't I a terrible mother for
taking a picture of this and THEN cleaning you up? hahahaha
have started loosing all your hair. All that adorable brown hair.
Breaks my heart! I don't know if it's because your head is getting
bigger and bigger all the time and your just growing right out of your
hair or if it's because I always played with it. Regardless, you have
far less hair now than what you came with. So sad.
For your first Halloween we dressed you up as a little pea pod! You
were the cutest little thing, but you hated your hat. So that didn't
last long. We went to your Dad's Halloween work party and you went
trick-or-treating and you were so generous that you gave all your candy
to your dad and mom!...probably the first and last time that that will
also starting to "talk" to me now. You'll coo at me and make the
sweetest noises that just melt my heart. I'm pretty enamored with you
my little guy. Everything you do. You've made me so happy, and just
when I think I couldn't love you more...you always do something to prove
Forever and Always and No Matter What!
