Oh baby Graham – you’re growing up so fast! I can’t believe it’s been 4 months. (Really almost 5 now!) I feel like you just got here, but I can’t imagine my life without you.
You’re smiling and giggling all the time. Which is so much fun since you slept so much the first few months of your life. Everyone at church always joked that you were the perfect baby. You slept all the time and never cried.
You’re still an awesome sleeper at night – last night you slept for 13 hours!! You usually do 11 hours. You go to bed at 9 and wake up around 8. However, you are NOT a good napper anymore. I’m lucky if you sleep for 2 hours total during the day. But I’ll take a full nights sleep over naps. 🙂
You’re still pretty skinny to me, but you’re starting to get some cute chubby thighs. Here are your stats from your 4 month doctors appointment on Jan 9th:
Weight: 14lbs 13.5oz (33%)
Length: 25in (72%)
Head Circumference: 17in (88%)
Wow – you’ve got a big old head! 🙂
Your doctor was a little worried at your appointment about your head control. She thinks if you don’t start holding up your head better within the next month, you might need some physical therapy. But you’ve got such a big head! I think you’ll be just fine.
I can tell you love me SO MUCH! I’m so happy I decided to stay home with you. (And very blessed to be financially able to stay home.)
You’ve started to find your voice this month. Now you really can CRY!! No more perfect sleepy baby – when you get upset nowadays, you let us know. You still don’t scream, thank goodness. But I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before you learn how to do that. 🙂
You’re wearing size 2 diapers and size 3-6 month clothes. It was so sad packing away your 0-3 month clothes. Maybe you’ll have a baby brother one day who will wear them!
You love your daddy! He’s so good at making you laugh. This past weekend mommy had lots of plans with her girlfriends so you and daddy got to spend a bunch of one-on-one time with each other. Daddy finally understands how hard it it is to keep you entertained these days!
My sweet Graham-a-lam! You’re so awesome. I love you so much!
