Happy 4 months Brennan! We found out a year ago yesterday that we were going to be parents, and all that excitement doesn't even compare to the last four months. This has been your most eventful month yet I think. You have begun to eat cereal, teethe, sit with support, sleep through the night, ride in your stroller, use the jumper and exersaucer, and try to roll over on occasion. One of your favorite activities is playing in the floor in your room. You love to read books, kick on the playmat, sing, and have tummy time. You weigh a little over fifteen pounds. Your hair has started to grow, and is blondish brown so far. You laugh out loud when we tickle your chin and tummy. When you are just sitting around, you almost always have your hands folded in your lap or a fist in your mouth. You still love to talk to everyone, and show big smiles when anyone looks at you. You have grown past the fussy stage and have had a very happy month.
We celebrated your first Easter at Fairview Church, and then had all of our family over throughout the day. The next week was Aunt Mandy's birthday. We had everyone to our house to celebrate. Gam's birthday was this month also, and we all ate at Outback. You now love restaurants. You usually sit in my lap and watch all the action. Nonna opened Sweet Annie's Antiques. You have spent several days (and nights) visiting there while Daddy and I work. We had our first overnight alone while Daddy traveled for work. You had to check in with me a few times that night, and we didn't get much sleep. Daddy and I had a date night, and you stayed at home with Nonna. The two of you strolled through the neighborhood, and stopped to visit neighbors on their front porches along the way.
There isn't much you don't like at this point. You still prefer to be close to me, but you do not mind other people holding you as much now. The biggest change for me is that you always want to sit or stand, and do not lay in my lap unless your sleepy. It makes you seem like such a big boy, and you no longer look like a little baby. You are resisting sleep right now, but I'm pretty sure it's because you're teething. You have one funny habit when you are sleepy. You bury your head in my arm. I guess you don't like the light, but every once in a while your head bobs up to check out what's happening.
You are such a blessing in our lives!
