Four Months Old

Our little Sawyer "Monk" is four months old! It really seems like he's always been with us, and at the same time like it's been no time at all, is that possible?Our dashing little man has a personality all his own. He's more discerning than his sisters were about who he'll smile at and when, but when he decides to grace you, watch out, you will be his! And the giggles, oh my goodness the giggles! He finds it extremely funny when we pull on his little sleeves to take his shirts off and is very ticklish on his tummy and chest, especially when Daddy's whiskers are involved!

Mommy's little man weighs in at 16 pounds, 2 ounces, which puts him in the 75th percentile for weight. He's in the 80th for height, which is no surprise, and the 55th for head circumference. "Growing beautifully" as the doctor put it. No rolling over yet, but he's sure doing a lot of rocking. He likes to rock from side to side to reach for toys when he's on his back and is working away on those mini push-ups when he's on his tummy. His favorite position is sitting up. Heaven forbid we put him in a reclined position in a baby seat, the crunches begin immediately!
Chillin with daddy is one of Sawyer's favorite things to do. There is something special between this father and his son. He's been sleeping really well, at least 7-8 hours at a stretch during the night and better naps during the day. We're now working on getting him to bed earlier, he's a bit of a night owl like his daddy. I've said it already, but I'll say it again, I really want this first year of his to slow down!

Oh My Goodness he's so handsome. I wish I could squeeze him more often. I see you a lot in the pictures you put up. And not just literally. Cause really, you're not in many of the pictures are you. Ha ha! Happy New Year and yay for the better sleeping. Love You!
