4 Months Old!



4 Months!

Charlie had his 4 month doctor visit and the doctor said he was 'perfect'. Of course he was referring to size, but we like to think in general.

16.1 lb ~ 75% for Weight
25.25 Inches ~ 70% for Height


What a good boy! He smiles and laughs a lot and has the cutest dimples.

He's a great sleeper, as good as I could ask for. Just after 9pm we do our bedtime routine. We read a story and get our jammies on, and then wrap up in our blanket and by that time Charlie's eyes are drooping, sometimes we rock a little and sometimes we go straight into bed. He looks around for a few seconds and then goes right to sleep all by himself!

When it comes to naps though... he's a dinkus. You never know what he's going to do, which makes it pretty hard to make plans for the day ~ It could be five 20 minute naps, one for 2.5 hours, and then sometimes he decides he's too big and important to take naps at all... ha. On a day by day basis we have almost no luck getting him to adhere to any type of routine. I suppose if I had to choose between him doing this during the day or during the night... I'd chose day - so I feel lucky.

We set up Charlie's jumper. He's figuring it out... we'll see how he feels about it for real. The first time it seemed like he was really getting it, but then the next couple he just sat in it and pulled up his feet and was real lazy about it and then would get off balance and start swinging around.

Charlie has started to figure out toys and be more purposeful with his hands. If he wants something he can reach out and grab it and feel it out. He always seems to find hoodie strings. If you're wearing a hood it's almost a guarantee that if you look down he will have one or both in his hands.

Charlie has a great tempermant. Really if there's not something wrong like he's sleepy or hungry he's pretty good. He can get a little over stimulated or a little needy, but typically he's just veeeerrrry chill.

And seriously, how cute is he?

Take Me out to the Soccer Game...

video

Hey Mom and Dad, thanks for taking me to this sweet game. To show my appreciation why don't I poo all the way up my back and down my leg while you're about to get me in the car to go home. Then I can poo on both of you, and we can all try to figure out how to keep the poo damage to a minimum in a parking garage.

Love, Charlie

A Little Plug for Business

I finished a new layout on my photography website & my friend Jeff (a great freelancer, if anyone wants) coded it for me.
Yay! So go look!

There is also a give away in honor of my sweet new website.
It's a very large discount and it's up for grabs. So check that out.

Spread the word, this is a potentially huge opportunity for a prospective bride who wants a lot of shooting at basement prices, so if you know anyone like that you may want to pass on the news.
