Walk and Talk

Christian and I met up with Heather and Shane this week for coffee and a walk along North Creek Trail at the Town Center. We grabbed our Starbucks and headed out only to be greeted by rain! So we changed plans and sat outside Starbucks on a bench with our strollers and chatted. 

Christian and Shane
We finally got some pictures of the boys together. We hope that these are just the beginning of many pictures to come in the following years.
What a blessing it is to have dear friends with babies so close in age!

He has recently discovered that his hands taste DELICIOUS! 
Me and my boy
Such a sweetie :)

4 months

I am 4 months old!
4 Month Stats
Weight: 13 pounds 8 ounces (15%)
Length: 25 7/8" (78%)
Head Circumference: 16 3/8" (55%)

**I am a bit late on this post...oops!...So these stats are for 4 1/2 months
*** Also note we are no longer going by his adjusted age! He is on the actual 4 month old scale :)
Fun side note- while we were at our 4 month appointment we ran into Christian's first roommate from the NICU! Small world!

Look I can hold it myself!

Clothes: Christian is in 0-3 month and 3 month clothes. The newborn clothes are officially all packed away :( They grow so fast!

Yes he looks cross-eyed but I can't help but love it!
Playtime: Christian is starting to do a bit more tummy time, but still only lasts at most 10 minutes before he throws a HUGE fit! He loves playing with his blocks and on his new bouncer from Nana. We sing songs all day and now he tries to sing along by cooing and trying to mimic me. :) These days it has been all about "Ho Ho Ho Hosanna", "Itsy Bitsy Spider", and "This is the Day the Lord Has Made". Christian is also very ticklish and has rediscovered his love of his activity mat. This boy is constantly kicking and moving!

Love Him!
Development: Christian "accidentally" rolled over last week so technically he rolled over once but hasn't again since. He is smiling, babbling and starting to giggle. He has started reaching for things as well: toys, my hair, jewelry, etc. He is getting better at holding his head up while on his tummy but is not quite there yet!

Sleep: Christian sleeps from 7:30/8:00- 10:00; 10:30-6:00, and 6:00/6:30 to 8:00!
Naps... hit and miss :)
