Happy 4 Months!

Happy 4 months, Andrew!

You are a growing boy, and every day brings more personality, more smiles, and more love for you!  You have giggled a few times, mostly when being lifted up in the air, playing "airplane".  Maybe you'll end up being a pilot like your Grandpa!   You love to listen to Daddy sing, and you're starting to babble more - it's the cutest thing.  

Bath time, and play mat time are still so much fun for you.  You have just started to grab at our faces and noses, practicing your hand/eye coordination.  This past weekend, you rolled over!  Twice!  From your stomach to your back.  We are so proud of you!  

At your four month check-up, you did great.  You weigh 12 lbs, 4oz, and you are 24.5 inches long. Which puts you at 10th percentile {for weight} and 25th percentile {for height}.

You are still breast-feeding, but you're also a champ at taking bottles, if you need to.
You are sleeping 9 hours straight through the night (from 10pm - 7am) by yourself!  Great job!

In 10 days, we get to take you on your first plane ride to Florida!  You will be meeting your Uncle Brad, your Great-Grandpa, and Mommy's best friend, Ashley!  And you'll get to visit your Mimi and Papa D...they can't wait to see how you've grown!

We love you sweet boy, oh so much.  You are just our favorite thing.  We pray that you always feel loved, and that you continue to smile, even when things get hard.  You have given us so much joy, and taught us so much about God's grace, and unconditional love.  

You love "Roo"!  Y'all have become the best of friends :)

And you love your mobile - you can follow the animals around and around, and you also get so excited when I wind it up for the music to play.  

It is so beautiful and refreshing to see the world through your eyes - pure wonderment and curiosity.  
We can't wait to watch you grow up. 

Love you to the moon and back, again and again.
