Bud: 4 Months

December 8, 2011

Three and four months are my favorite baby age. They are still new enough to be content to just lay with you and snuggle, but active enough to be cute and interact. Bud’s smiles make me melt. His coos and giggles are adorable. He has started actually holding toys to play with them (which consists of feeling and gnawing them). He is quick to give a smile, but still doesn’t laugh too much.

We went to the doctor today and Bud weighs in at a modest 14 lbs 12 oz (47%) and is 25.75″ tall (80%). For comparison Monkey was 17 lbs 12 oz and 25″ while Bruiser was 18 lbs and 26.5″ at four months.

Here is how he’s changed over the past month:

Such a happy baby and eager to show it! 1st trip out of the state. Went to SC for Lois's Senior Piano Recital. I let each boy pick out a piece of fabric for Bud's weekly picture and Monkey chose this old map fabric. Bud was an EXCELLENT car traveller. We only had to stop 3x on the way down and 4 on the way back. We also got a surprise visit from Auntie Jen who met Bud for the first time.

Green. Mama's favorite color. Warm enough to go outside for a picture. Oh, the lighting is SO much better when I can take pictures outside instead of inside. No shadows, just bright beautiful light to show off my beautiful boy without any film grainyness or fuzzy limbs. I must work on a better indoor lighting situation. That 14 week picture was terrible!

The weekend after Thanksgiving was spent decorating for Christmas. This fabric was The Chief's pick-he's the one in charge of the outdoor decorations. Bud has learned how to interlock his fingers together. Right after he does it, they go directly into his mouth. This was one of the few shots I got without his hands shoved in his face.

Bruiser learned a new trick. When Bud is hungry he will latch on to your nose. Bruiser had a cold with a gross drippy nose. Guess who isn't feeling well now? Poor Bud. Couldn't get him to smile at all. It's only fitting that his picture this week is on Bruiser's choice of fleece fabric. And that the pattern strangely looks like cocci-shaped bacteria cultures. (Yes, I'm still a science nerd.)
