Our Baby Cakes is 4 Months Old!!!!

One year ago on the 22nd of October, I found out that I was pregnant…and as of the 24th our Baby is 4 months old!!!  I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone by and I am doing everything I can to treasure every moment with him.  Looking back on pictures, he hardly even looks like the same little baby we brought home from the hospital in June.  He’s grown so much and is able to do so many things now, and I swear he woke up this morning and looked different than he did yesterday!  It really is bittersweet, and in some ways you wish they could stay that small forever, but in other ways there is so much to look forward to and it’s such an exciting time in his life.

2 Days Old

4 Months Old

We’ve really been enjoying the cooler fall weather for so many reasons.  It’s one of my favorite seasons because of the temperate weather, the beautiful colors, the tasty beers, and Thanksgiving : )  I also love it because when we do our daily 3 mile walk with the buddies a pair of yoga pants and a T-shirt with a light weight sweatshirt are the perfect clothes, and I’m not covered in sweat mid-way through!

We Love our Walks!

We had our 4 month well check this morning and the Doctor says that Garrett continues to be a very healthy little boy.  He eats about 4.5-5oz every 3 hours and naps consistently 3 times a day.  I’ve been working on his daily schedule and it finally seems to be paying off though it’s never spot on.  But I believe that being flexible is key to his routine.  We do what works best for us, and it seems to be going really well!

This rolling stuff isn't so bad once you get the hang of it!Look how big I am!

Here are his monthly stats as well as the milestones he’s accomplished (or working on accomplishing : )

  • Sleeps 7 or more hours straight every night
  • If he eats in the middle of the night, it’s only one time right around 4 a.m. and he is changed, fed, and back to sleep in about 15 minutes then sleeps another 3-4 hours
  • Rolls from his tummy to his back with ease
  • Rolls from his back to his tummy occasionally
  • Holds his head up for extended periods of time
  • Reaches for and grasps objects then brings them to his mouth(especially his fingers)

    yummy!

  • Follows objects and sounds
  • Starting to take interest in the Dogs
  • Talks ALL of the time
  • Smiles and laughs in response to lots of different things
  • Makes Dan and I smile and laugh several times a day : )

    Handsome little man!

We are so blessed to have such a perfect little man and we are so proud of him!

*I’m hoping to blog about some recipes I attempt to bake in the near future.  Just have to figure out when I can squeeze in time to bake with this little monkey who requires sooo much attention : )
