I cannot believe that my baby boy is 4 months old today! Seriously... mommas aren't joking when they say "time flies." This is my first monthly post and I hope to continue them until he turns one. This was the EXACT day last year that I took a pregnancy test and discovered we were expecting our little man. I found the chalkboard monthly labels here and it is such an easy way to keep track of Sawyer's monthly pictures. I plan to make some sort of collage and frame them when he turns one!
Has it really been four months already?! I remember when we brought you back from the hospital and you were this tiny peanut. You amaze me more and more everyday. You are so curious about the world around you and love to take walks outside, especially in the baby carrier. You try to put everything you get your hands on in your mouth... believe it or not, you even tried to put your big, furry brother, Oliver, in your mouth! Luckily, he's a good sport and just sat there and took the abuse. You're also a big drooler, there is drool EVERYWHERE! If you're laying on your play mat, you'll leave a puddle of drool behind. My favorite part of my days are when I'm holding you and you glance up at me, giving me the sweetest smile and then bury your head in my arms. The other day before daddy was going to give you a bath, he was getting you undressed and blew on your tummy, you started laughing and squealing with delight. Your daddy kept doing it and you just kept on laughing. Your laugh is definitely my new favorite sound in the entire world! You are also quite the chatter box. Usually between 5-6 am, you start babbling to yourself about who knows what? Daddy and I joke that you are our little alarm clock...if only I could press the snooze button on you sometimes (hehe). You've been rolling from your tummy to your back, it's very entertaining because you surprise yourself when you do it. Grandma G actually saw you flip from your tummy to your back for the first time on Skype (you're such a show-off). I think that you are going to roll from your back to your tummy very soon because you keep lifting your legs high in the air and I will find you stuck on your side. We have your four month check-up this weekend in Hong Kong and I am excited to hear how you've grown, but I'm also dreading it because that means you get shots and that makes my heart hurt to see you in pain. Daddy and I love you so much little man! :)
