4 months!

Dear Graham,

You are 4 months old.  You have become such a great baby.  You are very laid back and so content.  And have the easiest, sweetest, cutest little grin I've ever seen. 

You have adjusted pretty good to daycare.  And we all are falling into our new routine.  You take 2 bottles at daycare, usually around 6 oz each.  You nurse in the morning before daycare, in the evening, before bed and once during the night.  You are great eater.

You go to bed around 9 or 9:30 and I usually have to feed you between 2-3 am.  You usually wake up around 6.  I'm looking forward to a full nights sleep,  but I know we'll get there.  I'm just thankful you are a healthy, happy baby.

You did have your first fever/cold about a week ago and were so pitiful.  It was heartbreaking and exhausting because you didn't really sleep for a couple of nights.  We had you all checked out at the Dr. and they couldn't find anything wrong so we are guessing it was just something viral and it passed in about 48 hours. 

You are wearing size 2 diapers.  And 3-6 month clothes.  You weigh around 15 1/2 lbs. and are around 25 inches long.  We go for your 4 month check up next week so we'll get your official stats then.

You are starting to like your paci a little more but you chew on your hands most of the time.  You love to sit in the bumbo or sit up with our help so you can look around and take it all in.  You spend a lot of time watching your wild brother.

I can't imagine our little family without you.  Everyday you bring us so much joy. I love you more than you will ever know!

Mommy
