Maxwell turned 4 months old last Thursday. I really feel like, just last week, he turned this corner and has become a much more manageable baby. It’s hard to explain but I just feel like I “get” him more now. Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t know what I’m doing a lot, but he’s not a complete mystery to me anymore. We’re getting the BEST smiles, some hilarious laughs and giggles and the cutest noises you have ever heard. Recently he has just been talking up a storm…babbling on and on. He rolls over almost every time we put him on his tummy and he’s now a big fan of the bumbo! He LOVES to put absolutely anything in his mouth, especially his hands. He’s exploring his world and it’s so fun to see him discover things. He’s doing pretty good sleeping through the night. We rock him to sleep for just about 5 minutes and then lay him in his crib drowsy but still awake. He’ll still cry a bit every night – anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes usually – but then he’s out! He’s still getting up to eat once in the night but will go right back to sleep after his tummy his full. We’re working on getting him to sleep a bit later in the morning. His current 5:30 am wake-up time is just too early for mom and dad! 🙂 He’s quite the charmer and will willingly show friendly strangers his dimples…but then will usually get shy and turn his head into me. He melts my heart daily. I can’t believe this perfect little chubbo baby is mine. I love him soooo much!
Ok, as usual with the monthly photos, there are a TON. I just can’t narrow them down so here we go…
Happy to be 4 months old!
He’s obviously still a very good eater! 🙂
Mom: “Hey Maxwell, can you show me how many months old you are?”
Maxwell: “ummm…this many?”
Mom: “4! that’s right!”
Maxwell: “Yay for me!”
Mom: “You know what else is pretty funny, Maxwell?”
Maxwell: “Ummm…What Momma?”
Mom: “You’ve had your hand resting on your diaper in all these pictures! You kinda look like Michael Jackson…he he!”
Maxwell: “hahahahaha! oops! I’m so funny and I didn’t even know it!”
My baby, just being cute…
The next four photos are proof that his very favorite thing to do right now is chew on his hands!
Just hanging out…one of my favorites.
Maxwell: “Hey Momma, remember when I used to only be this tall…”
“Well look how tall I am now compared to Little Al! I’m a big boy!”
I know I’m biased but I even think he’s got the cutest feet around…
When he’s not chewing on his hands, he’s always holding them together up near his face like this…
Cute, huh? And this is one of my very favorite expressions of his…
Happy 4 months sweet boy!! I don’t think you can get any better and really kind of wish you’d stay this size forever! 🙂
