4 Months Old

So I’m a few days late with this post. Does that really surprise you? No? Didn't think so!
Moving’s what Mr. Henry has been up to this month:

He has really started babbling and cooing and gurgling and laughing this month.

He is ticklish!

He LOVES to be thrown up in the air and gives the biggest cackle. Although, his mother really prefers it when she’s the one to toss him up. When daddy’s does it he throws way to high!

He has rolled over a few times from stomach to back.

He loves to lay in his crib and watch his mobile go round and round. He will lay there a good thirty minutes before he starts fussing to move on to something else.

He rode in his baby k’tan at the grocery store for the first time this month and he LOVED it! Now I don’t have to wait until the evening when I am bone tired to go.

He watches me intently and when I look down or over at him his entire face lights up like a Christmas tree and he smiles the biggest, most beautiful smile you have ever seen! He is my heart.

He has slept through the night a handful of times since he was born. But never more than once in a while. This week since Sunday he has slept 4 out of 5 nights ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!!

There have been quite a few nights in the last 6 weeks or so that he has woken up to eat and then after he had his belly full and I put him back in his bed, he has just laid there and played. And by played I mean kicking and cooing and cackling, basically making the cutest baby sounds in the whole world. The ones that make you want to get up and play with him! He did that the one night he didn't sleep all night this week and I just layed there listening wanting to get up and play but I was just so tired. Lol.

He LOVES his giraffe! Its the first thing he reached for and grabbed. He loves to “hug” it and chew on its nose. We all love watching him play with it. And it makes for seriously cute pictures!

He went to the doctor for a well check yesterday and had to get shots. I hate shot day! He was super duper fussy last night and I had to swing on the porch with him for over an hour last night to calm him down. Its hard to see him so upset because he is always so happy! He has slept most of the day today and been a little fussy. He weighs 14 lbs and 13 oz and is a little above average for length and has a slightly less than average size head. Over the last few weeks I have really seen A LOT of baby Audrey in him! He has the same size and shape head as she did, petite! I find this quite amusing because there is nothing else petite about Mr. Henry! He has chunked up quite nicely and has some delicious fat rolls. He’s definitely a snap on baby :)

Forgetting to Remember

I'm going to have to start a blog journal for topics. Several times a day lately I’ve had thoughts that would be good to document and every single time I have sat down to blog my brain shuts down and all I can think is “Now what was it I wanted to remember?” And I sit here for several minutes while my brain short circuits trying to remember until I finally give up and go fold laundry or something that doesn’t require thinking. Hisssssssss boooooooooo.

3 Months Big

Henry is 3 months old today was 3 months old on Tuesday. Hard to believe so much time has passed already. Here is what he’s been up to lately and what he enjoys doing:

Laying on his play mat and looking at himself in the mirror on it.
Watching videos of himself on my phone
Looking at the bright light of the screen on my phone
Watching his Baby Einstein video, Baby Mozart

LOVES talking to his mama and always smiles when he sees her face :)
LOVES talking to his daddy and always smiles when he sees his face :)
He gets so excited sometimes talking to us that he does this little cough

Adores watching his brother and sisters talk to him and especially enjoys watching his littlest older sister perform tricks for him

He smiles at every one and can make them squeal with delight
Loves being in his car seat and it puts him to sleep almost every time he gets in

Blows raspberries all the time and has started drooling a lot

Gets so excited when we lay him in his crib to watch his mobile go round and round

Eats every 3-4 hours
Sleeps 5-6 hours in a stretch at night
Naps for 1 1/2 - 2 hours in the morning and afternoon
Takes 1 - 2 cat naps in the evening before bed time between 9 and 10

Just graduated to a size 3 diaper

Has the best daddy in the whole wide world

p.s. I posted twice today so keep scrolling :)

Getin52-Last Week

I’m enjoying the Getin52 project but am so behind on posting. Last week I had the great idea to film Olivia and I doing her homework like we do every afternoon on the couch. And I kept it real. Except for the random piece of food (I think it was a cashew) under the side table that I just had to edit out.

I learned two things that I need to work on from this series:

1. Learn to hide the remote better.

2. Loose weight.

Yes, yes, I know. I just had a baby. But I “just had that baby” 3 whole months ago and am fully recovered from it so there are no excuses really except that I am lazy. Haha! And seeing yourself in the frame on a regular basis really can be eye opening. A little too much at times :) But B&W conversions can hide a multitude of sins. And pounds. LOL!!!!
