4 months

Bringing in 4 months with this sweet little guy! Today also brought along his first cold.  Even with watery eyes, a runny nose, and more drool than my shoulder can hold, he was still full of smiles.  And snuggles.  Trying to be his cheerful self, but just not quite pulling it off. 

 Caleb, you've had a busy  month.  You still seem so small, but after visiting my best friend's newborn, you suddenly are so not a newborn anymore.  A little perspective changes everything.  You are growing by leaps and bounds.  You still fit perfectly in daddy's arms though.  You love to snuggle on my shoulder, but when anyone else holds you, you prefer to be looking out at everything. And you sure are taking it all in with your blueish gray eyes.
 You love to hang out on the floor on one of your blankets.  You are starting to roll over.  Mason was the first one to witness your new moves.  He was so excited and couldn't wait to tell Emma and daddy when they got home.

Mason and Emma still love to hold you and ask several times a day.  They also like when I put your bouncy chair in their room.  They include you in their play and it's hilarious to listen in.  You are usually either little baby bear or the little brother.  They cook for you and take you on trips.

When you cry they look out for you. 

Once I returned from feeding the chickens and Mason exclaimed, "there you are mom...I've been bouncing this chair (bouncy seat) forever (maybe 4 minutes) and every time I stop he just keeps crying.  I'm worn out."

And of course when Emma is around and you start crying, you will soon be covered with every blanket in sight, be surrounded by every stuffed animal and she will try singing about 2 centimeters from your face.  Her motto: more is better and try to be louder!
 Some things to remember about 4 months:

~you have found your toes and love to grab them
~you also love to grab Emma's hair
~you drool like crazy
~you take great naps
~your sleep patterns at night could improve though...you have added a couple extra feedings, growth spurt maybe?
~you love to go for walks in the stroller, but prefer to keep moving and fuss a little when Mason and Emma start exploring their surroundings
~you've started grabbing your toys and moving them around
~you have the best belly laugh and love to be tickled
~you love baths
~you're a happy little guy!
We love you so much, Caleb!
