Four Months Old Yesterday

I just want to start off by saying that one year ago yesterday I went into the bathroom at work and took a pregnancy test and...two pink little lines never looked so beautiful.  I am so blessed.
P.S. I wrote this post yesterday but finished it today.

Dear Sullivan,
You are four months old today.  Every time I look at you I am so amazed.  I love scooping you up in my arms in the morning and seeing you smile and stretch your arms up over your head.  Playtime is so much fun, you love to make sweet noises and get excited sometimes.  You are such a happy boy.  Today when you were laying in your  play yard I couldn't help but laugh while you swung your arms boxer style at the little parrot that hangs down.  Your little legs were kicking excitedly too.  I love that you still love taking baths, it's something I look forward to everyday.  You light up my life more than I ever imagined possible little one.

Weight: 18 Pounds (95th percentile)
Height: 27.3 Inches (97th percentile)
The doctor says you are just a big baby all around :)
She also thinks that your blue eyes are here to stay...we shall see.
And little one, you are getting your first tooth.  The doctor showed me and its coming in on the bottom.  No wonder you have been clamping down on my finger when you put it in your mouth.  Teething toys here we come.
You wear size 3 diapers now and sizes 3, 6, and 9 month clothes depending on the brand.
You are so curious about everything and are constantly turning your head to see things in all directions around you.
I love taking you places...I think you like going to the grocery store and Target with me.

I know that you love to be held oh so much.
And I love carrying you in my arms or in one of the two carriers that I have.
You rolled over this week and it was so exciting.
You have started reaching for things that I am carrying like a banana, a bowl, or a piece of paper.
Baby boy you are learning new things every day...and I feel so special to be here to witness all that you do.
I love you!



  1. This was such a beautiful post, Megan! Such sweet words to your son. :) I bet it's so exciting to see him change and grow -- he looks like lots of fun!

  2. Yay! 4 months! Its all that delish breastmilk that is making him grow so big! Auntie Kaysie can't wait to see him!

  3. frozen bananas in that little "net pacifier" are the best thing for new teeth!! also cold mashed up food helps too!!

  4. Can't wait to see you Sully. God bless you.

    Love, Grandma and Grandpa
