Our little boy is 4 months old already! He is twice the size he was when he was born. No sign of teeth yet but he is drooling like crazy and always has his fingers (or a toy) in his mouth. So they are probably going to show up soon. His hand-eye coordination is getting better each day. He is pretty good with taking out his pacifier but it’s still a little hard for him to return it there. He loves loves loves to be kissed and we make sure to give him as many as we can! He is starting to talk or coo for longer periods of time now. Sometimes he’ll just sit there and chatter on, while we listen and try to talk back. We’ve been able to enjoy a few parks with the weather being nice, and also sit in the backyard and admire the sad sad garden (not enough sunshine yet!!).
I returned to work last week, but on a transitional part-time schedule to start with. I will be fully back into the five days a week in three weeks. I am thankful that my employer allows me to do this, I know that having to start back with five days a week right off the bat would’ve been so hard for me. It was nice last week knowing that I got to stay home every other day with him. His Grandma’s Trudie and Betty did fabulous with him and are loving the time they get to snuggle him all day. And I know he loves it too! I am super grateful to them for helping us this summer. We don’t have a daycare plan lined up after that, but we are working on it.
Here are some more fun photos from the last month:
We hope you are enjoying the summer!
