There’s just more to love ;)

I’ve had a lot of emails asking how big my chunky monkey is these days…

He’s HUGE. 🙂 He is bigger (taller and heavier) than almost all of the babies in the baby room… and, NO… he still can’t roll over.  But, he’s getting closer! It will be any day now.

At his 4 month well baby check up, Graeson weighed 18 pounds, 2 ounces- which places him in the 95%.  He was 26.5 inches tall- 90%- and his head circumference was 41.5 cm (28%)… Apparently he has a small head… we all know he didn’t get that from Daddy or Mommy! 🙂

🙂 Thanks for asking about my little Boo.

Oh, AND he sucked his little piggy toes today for the first time… Who knew something like that would make me so proud?! 😉


Letters to Grae- 4 months old

My Darling Boy,

You are four months old now and the awe of being your Mommy hasn’t even come close to wearing off- if anything, it becomes more apparent every day.  Daddy and I just look at each other and exclaim, “Isn’t he just perfect?!” multiple times every day.

You are showing some signs that rolling over is growing near.  Your little feet go up in the air and you are starting to swing them from side to side, as if to give you some momentum. You have started pulling yourself up into a sitting position when you are propped up at a slight angle on pillows or when I give you my hands for leverage. You have a strong grip and it sometimes takes serious effort to peel your little fingers off objects (usually fistfuls of Mommy’s hair- OUCH!). You discovered your feet last week and now hold on to them for dear life!

You laugh all the time and the joy you spread around is so infectious.

Having the honor of watching you develop from a tiny newborn to this precious little boy with so much love, happiness and personality is the greatest thing I have ever known.  You have forever changed the way I look at the world.

I love you, Graeson.
