Countdown 1 year {4 months}

Another month has come & gone.
And that means my baby is another month old.
Four months.
At his appointment on Tuesday, his doctor said if you could bottle up babies & sell them, this would be the age to do it:).
Cute, happy, smiley, immobile, content...yep I'd agree to that.

Dad's so funny.
And Tucker's still our little cuddly guy.

It's been a big month for this little guy.
He laughed for the first time on St. Patrick's Day.
He laughed at me.
Good choice...you couldn't have picked a more willing participant Tuck.

We also discovered our buddy could sit all propped on his arms on St. Patrick's Day.
That was a good day...

Tucker, you LOVE to fly.
You get stiff as a board & smile as big as you possibly can.
Then you drool on your personal airplane lifter & make them laugh.
Or maybe cringe...but cute all the same.

Tucker is still super happy.
He does not like to nurse in front of others.
He's much too interested in seeing who's talking than eating.
Which makes it interesting. Even your sister causes you to get distracted.
Today Tucker is eating every 3 1/2 hours.
He naps 1 hour & 45 minutes & sleeps 8- 8 1/2 hours at night.
And a new trick has been discovered...rolling over.
In the middle of the night.

We had to let him learn to sleep without a paci this month.
That was hard. Mostly on mom.
I did not like that.
But I'm so thankful that we did it, because now Tuck's an awesome sleeper.
Soothing yourself is a skill worth having for sure...

At 4 months Tucker is:
Weighing in at: 16lbs 4 oz (75%)
Standing tall at: 26 in (90%)
and his Head was measured at: 17 1/2 in (95%)
Are we sure that's right?
I always want to ask the nurse that....but I don't want to insult her measuring skills.
Besides...I'm pretty sure she's right:).
He's a boy for sure.
A drooly, giggly, happy, squishy, oh so fun, boy.
We love you our adorable baby!
Now, stop getting so big...
Oh. And yes, he still looks just like Mitchel.

What a cute little guy. Or I guess I should say big guy!! Way to go Tucker on the self-soothing! Maybe you could teach Carson and Avery that trick....ha,ha! Amber, he's so sweet!
