Seasons of Love - Four Months

Baby boy,

Aside from the not-so-much-into sleeping, you're a very happy baby. You smile and giggle for everyone you meet.

I had my first Mother's Day. It was awesome for many reasons - mostly you, naturally, but also the trip to your first Cardinals game.

You got to spend a week with your maternal grandma while I was at a work training. She got to learn all of your little quirks and habits. You're so lucky to have two sets of grandparents that love the bejeebus out of you.

You went to your first grown-up party. It was really loud and you were not impressed. Regardless, you handled it stoically and got to make your "Aunt" Lou's day.

You also had a coffee date with your friend Kristabella. She posted pictures of you on her website. She was kind enough to cut your fat -- verra verra fat -- mommy out of the pictures.

You gave us your first real laugh this past month. It was hilarious. I still like your "HEH!" laugh, but a true giggle? Heh! Very funny.

We've been struggling with your tummy issues. This acid reflux is so on my left nerve. It makes nursing so hard for you and you're chronically congested. We're working on it ... and hopefully we'll have it taken care of in the next few weeks.


Having you in my life makes me so excited to get up every morning. Your daddy and I think you're amazing and we love you so much. Despite your already thinking we're dorks.

I love you,
Mama
