I say it every month, but seriously how is our little bunny already FOUR MONTHS OLD?????????
^^I know, Jason. You’re like “what the what????” I feel the same way little baby. It’s CRAZY.
But in all seriousness, this little love bug. He is so sweet. Always happy. He is the very best part of every day for me. He is just the best.
Somehow, I only managed to bust out the “big camera” one time last month for a little photo sesh with him. Sad, but true. Here are a few favorites on the beautiful afghan my Grandma knitted years ago for future babies she knew I (and my sisters) would have. She made several baby afghans for my sisters and I while we were all still in college. Unfortunately, she passed away my junior year at U.F. and my mom kept these for each of us until we each had our babies. I love that my Grandma had the forethought and took the time to do something so very special for each of us (she made at least 7 of these that I know of), and I know she is watching over us (alongside my Grandad) and loving seeing Jason enjoy the afghan she made! She would have especially LOVED Jason’s red hair! :)))
Here are the updates on this little guy’s last month…
…starting with the most unexpected…he cut TWO teeth. At just over 3 months, the first started coming through, quickly followed by tooth #2. (Which was insane because he is SO young and doesn’t know how to chew on a teething toy or anything yet! Plain old distraction (from what I’m sure is painful teething) has really been our only remedy.)
…has definitely mastered rolling over. I am bawling my eyes out just thinking about how soon he will be crawling.
…has become super aware and super grabby. Jason looks around when he hears an interesting or loud noise wanting to see exactly what’s going on (and always needs to scope out Oliver’s location when he hears him bark). He also wants to get his hands on EVERYTHING (hair, limbs, toys, you name it).
…is constantly babbling his adorable baby sounds. They are THE BEST.
…lights up when daddy comes home from work. He loves seeing daddy and gets super duper smiley when Jereme walks in the house.
…started using the exersaucer and (I think) he loves it! It’s like watching a really drunk person try to do anything coordinated, but he is definitely getting the hang of it.
…is still rocking naptime with a solid morning and afternoon nap. He’s also moving towards longer nighttime stretches of sleep getting a combined 11 to 12 hours on the regular and only waking for one feeding.
…and is still a rockstar dining partner when Jer and I go out to eat. We’ve never had a single issue and I’d love to keep it that way, but I know we’re already on borrowed time for some kind of public meltdown.
This past month flew by SO insanely fast! I’m excited to see what the next few months bring for us. Here are a few photos from last month…
