4 Months


My little buddy, you're four months old today, 
and still stubborn as ever.
And here I hoped for a baby that resembled more of your father.
Ha, who was I kidding, I have lessons to be learned.

Stubborn and all, you're still the cutest kid around, and I just can't get enough of you.
Your laughs, smiles, and constant babbling melt my heart.
You know how to get what you want, and will protest until you succeed.
Hmm, sounds like someone else I know.  
Whoops!

You're rolling over, sitting up, we discovered that one yesterday, and can stand with help.
Everything goes in your mouth these days.
In fact, your fingers are becoming your favorite toy
And I think you much prefer them to that darn binkie of yours.
Is that bad I'm ok with that?
Listen, I was a thumb sucker, and I still have good teeth.
Forget what your dad the dentist says.

You refuse to not know what's going on around you.
Yes, that even means you're protesting naps these days.
And here I thought we were doing so well in the sleep department.
Just when I think I have you figured out, what works, what doesn't, 
You throw that darn curve ball at me.
Yes, you sure keep things interesting around here.

Nights are your favorite, and I thank you for sleeping so well. 
6:30pm-7am, sometimes 8 if we're lucky, 
it's a little bit of heaven to our, often times, crazy days.

I can't believe you're four months old already,
yet, oddly enough, I feel like you've been mine forever.
Funny how that works.

We just love you to pieces, and love watching you discover new things!
You sure make our everyday a little bit sweeter.

Now, stop growing, because you're huge! 
Where did my baby go?
Oh, right, I never really had one of those, did I?
