Holy freakin 4 months!

Brayden Ryan... You are FOUR months old! I know, I know..... I say this every month, but the insanity of this is just unbelievable! You are growing and shocking the crap out of mommy and daddy everyday, because you are constantly changing and learning... and your smarts are just astounding.

This month, You learned how to roll.. front to back, and back to front.. so youre a little rolling machine! Rolling over has brought so  much joy to you.  You have discovered the floor of your playmat, and you just adore all the bright colors.

You are so determined to sit up. You grunt, and stretch, and fidget until whoever is holding you, finally sits you in an upright position. We try to remind you that youre only 4 months old, but you are far ahead of your times.

Holding up your head is no longer an issue ever. Your legs are the strongest. Sometimes, you get so excited, and kick so hard that it seriously hurts sometimes.

We have started you on Solids, and you LOVE your food! Bananas are your ABSOLUTE favorite so far, you thought apples were pretty good, but we're not sure if you are sold on the Peas yet. You act like you love them, and then we usually clean you up while youre screaming like a maniac. Not really sure why it is about your love/hate relationship with these peas... but good news is, we're almost done with the Peas days and we will be ready for pears in no time!

You weigh over 14 lbs, and are about 23 inches long putting you in the 50th percentile for weight and height. You are still wearing 3 month clothes, but are quickly growing out of most of them, so we have begun the transition into all of your 6 months clothes! You are in size 2 diapers.

You are a drooling mess. We average 4 bibs a day, and you have been giving our washing machine a run for its money. I used to LOVE baby clothes, until I had to wash and fold them all week long.

You are a talking machine. You have so much to say, and I absolutely LOVE hearing every detail! You coo, and goo, and gaga all day long, and when you get really excited you SCREECH!

You love smiling and laughing, and when you laugh really hard, you almost always bury your face in your hands.. and its got to be the cutest thing I have ever seen.

You adore reading books, and I could not be more happy! Mommy reads to you at least twice a day... Your favorite book is "My mommy and Me" , and "Guess who? ELMO!" After we exhaust ourselves with reading, we usually cuddle up together for a quick nap on mommy and daddys bed =)

You crack daddy and I up every single day. You have such a cute little personality, and we can not get over how much we love and adore you. We are so lucky to be your parents.
