four months

dear declan,

my sweet boy i'm so late doing your 4 month update, mainly because i'm in disbelief at how quickly these months are flying by.  didn't i just sit down to write your 3 month update?  i was looking at pictures from your birth the other day and goodness how you have grown.  this has been such a fun month because your personality is really starting to show.  you're such a smiley and happy baby and on November 14th you surprised me (and yourself) with your first belly laugh.  thankfully we called daddy at work and you did it once more for him!  such an incredible moment.

you're really filling out my chunky monkey.  you're weighing in at 13 lbs. and 7 oz.  you're also an even 2 feet tall!  we're gradually transitioning your clothes over to 3-6 mos.  definitely in the pants and snapped onesies for length.  also, we finished up all our size 1 diapers this month so you'll head over to the 2's.  you love sitting up and are so strong in your core.  the pediatrician called you a curtain climber ha!  we busted out the bumbo this month to see how you'd do and you love it.  you love being able to check out what's going on around you.  you're sleeping like a champ going from about 9 pm to 6 am and then a morning nap about 7 am to 10 am with an afternoon nap from 1 pm-4 pm.  you love meal times and let us know for sure when it's time.  you also hate the mid break for a burp and scream at your bottle for more.

you celebrated your first halloween this month and were quite the hit visiting friends and neighbors in your costume with daddy carrying you.  you loved handing out smiles and your daddy loved eating your treats.  you too are quite the pair!!  i love nothing more than watching the two of you bond.  your face lights up when he walks in the room and if you're still napping when he comes home from work he can't wait to wake you up for some smiles.

little man we love you more and more each day!  i am so excited for this next month for the holidays and celebrating your first Christmas!!

love always,
