Caleb 4 Months

He is 4 whole months already! 

He is still an incredibly happy baby. He smiles a ton and is so patient. He has been watching me and making raspberries the whole time I put this post together.

He is starting to appreciate his toys more and he loves to watch his big brother play. He still loves books and has a fantastic attention span for a 4 month old.

He has recently started eating a bit less. He is down to about 7-9 ounces 4-5x/day. Sleeping has been a bit rough this past month. He is has been congested the whole time so we think that is why.

He MELTS my heart with these smiles of his! 

His eyes are still a deep, dark blue. They haven't changed too much since birth.

He is such a good conversationalist. Just make eye contact and he'll tell you some stories.

He has been chewing on his hands quite a bit lately. 
 He wore this outfit to church recently and I knew I had too get some good pictures of him in it! Adorable, right?

 It's kinda hard not to just sit around and pinch his cheeks all day.

Here is his almost sit.
 At Caleb's 4 month check up we saw a different doctor since ours was on vacation for the week. He noticed that Caleb is holding his head well and is almost sitting on his own (he can for a few seconds) and thought that was good. He asked if he was reaching out for me to pick him up. I said no. The doctor said that usually happens between 6-8 months and it's something to look for... towards the end of the visit the doctor looked at Caleb's stats and apologized because he thought he was 6 months old. I also heard the nurses asking each other, "Does he really weigh that much?"

Yes! We have a 20 pounder already!

Caleb's 4 month stats:
weight- 19lbs 15oz- 99.09 percentile
lenght-27.5inches- 99.85 percentile

Green Eggs And Ham

Archie has been enjoying Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss lately. I finally made him some green eggs for breakfast (we didn't have any ham around so just eggs). It was a hit!

  I read him the book while he breakfasted. (Caleb slept in.)

He ate it all!

This cell pic before I got out the DSLR. He was so excited!

Christmas 2012

We enjoyed Christmas morning at our house. Archie got to take his time opening and then playing with his presents.

This year we did a Christmas book advent. Every night we placed a wrapped up Christmas book under the Christmas tree and Archie would open it and we would read it to him. So on Christmas morning Archie avoided the larger gifts and went straight for a book. He even found one with his name on it. This was probably coincidence but he is getting good at recognizing his name and a few other words.

After the morning with just the four of us we went over to my moms and had more presents and Christmas lunch.

This year we also celebrated St. Nicolas Day and did the Sunday candle advent. We have done these in the past (Jacob and I did St. Nicholas Day before we were engaged). I wasn't too good with taking photos of the Holidays for 2012. There is always next year.
