Devin- 4 Months Old

I blinked and these four months passed by! It's hard to believe that his first year of life is 1/3 over. Makes me kind of sad. But this is an incredibly fun age and I am truly savoring every moment. At four months:

-He is a great sleeper at night. He usually eats for the last time at 10:00ish and doesn't need another snack until 4:00 a.m. And then he just nibbles and doesn't want another full meal until 11:00 a.m.

-He LOVES the boobie. I am thankful that he has never had a moment of difficulty with nursing. He has great instincts and he can find the boob during the night on his own. He's like a puppy that way.

-On his four month birthday he weighed 16 lbs 3 oz (76%) and was 25.5 inches long (73%).

-He fits nine month clothes just right, with a tiny bit of growing room.

-He isn't really fat, just husky. Big boned and broad like his big brother.

-His Bumbo chair is his favorite thing, other than Mommy.

-He drools constantly. Puddles pour out of his mouth all the time. He loves to chew on things and I think he'll be an early teether like Ethan.

-He wears a size 3 diaper.

-He has discovered his hands and more so, he's thrilled that his hands are tools! If he is laying on his back and I put something in his hand, he slowly holds it up and when his eyes catch sight of it he gets really excited.

-He will pull anything to his mouth to suck on it. Hence, the great nursing instincts.

-He has a really funny cowlick in the front. People ask me if I part his hair in the middle on purpose. I always looks at them like they are dumb. Yes people, I want my child to resemble Alfalfa from "The Little Rascals".

-He knows his mommy. I am happy to say that I am still his favorite person on the planet. No one can comfort him like I can. And that is how it should be at this age.

-He likes to be in my wrap facing out so he can see the world. But when he is sleepy he likes to be worn against my chest.

-He has hist first ear infection which was discovered at his four month check up. Thanks Daddy. He inherited his bad ears from your side!

-The poor boy is trying so hard to roll over, but he hasn't quite gotten there yet. He gets very frustrated and starts crying when he gets stuck on that arm.

-He smiles ALL THE TIME and has the most precious dimples. They make me melt. He also started really laughing and it is music to my ears!


Devin is a very well adjusted and happy boy. We are so grateful to have him in our lives. We are all madly in love with him and he is a ray of sunshine!

When he was first born, I thought he looked just like Lauren, but the older he gets, the more he looks like Hailey!
