4 months old :)


Where has the time gone??
Today: December 25th...Declan is 4 months old!
Weight: 13 lbs, 3 oz+ (weight a week ago)
Height: 25.5 inches (yes, almost 5 inches longer than at birth!)
New nicknames: Declan-do...he giggles when we add "do" to then end of his name. He still goes by a plethora of other nicknames.
This past month...
-Declan has slept through the night ONE time. Yes, a backslide from last month, but whataya do?
-We've dropped his evening nap this month so he now gets to hang out with us all night. Usually he gets a bit crabby and nods off for a bit before his 10pm feeding. He still gets up around 3:00am and then is up for the day at 7am. I'm hoping to blog at his 5 month birthday that he's dropped his 3am feeding. Please please please! ;)
-Declan loves his exersaucer!! Mr. Strongpants loves to play in it and it's so cute to catch him "reading" the book that's one of the attached toys.
-All his newborn and 0-3 month clothes got put in storage this week. Some 3-6 month pants also made the storage bin as well as some of his 6-9 month jammies. It's shocking how quickly kiddos outgrow their clothes.
-Declan is much more interactive now. He loves to sit on our laps while we hold his hands and be bounced around. His little laugh is a heart melter.
-Declan now sleeps in his crib. Woot woot!
-We had a little Christmas party with his birthparents this month. It had been awhile since we had seen them so it was touching to see them experience all his new faces and sounds. We had a great time with them!
-The doctor gave us a green light last Friday to start yellow vegetables! He's going to skip rice cereal since he has a suspected milk intolerance. I've been researching how to make my own baby food and have plans to get him started here soon. *Wish me luck.* ;)

We had a great time this Christmas hanging out with our families. I have a horrible head cold so I've been a little cloudy in the brain but still have good memories. Here are some pics of our little family (minus the dog children):

So cute. Hope you can drop that 3 am feeding. 5 months was when we dropped ours most of the time.

I can't believe he is 4 months old already! Time sure does fly by!! He is sooo adorable and I love hearing of all his new "talents." Baby belly laughs are a slice of heaven!

How is it possible that he just keeps getting more and more adorable?!?!?!

We are working on rice cereal right now, but looking forward to veggies.
