Four Months

There have been a lot of changes since hitting your 4 month mark. You can recognize me from clear across the room now, and every time you do, your chubby cheeks form a huge grin and your eyes get all Asian. It is adorable!
You watch your sister Annabelle like a hawk, you adore her so. 
I really look forward to when you two can run around together :) I hope you two grow to be best friends!
She is your mini-mommy too. Most days she rushes to your aid before I can even get up. She knows you like your binki, and your teething giraffe. And she will huddle around you every few minutes, just to tell you how cute you are. I think she adores you, too ;)
Speaking of teething, you have two teeth!! And my heart aches a little every time I think about it. I want you to stay my baby forever, and teeth just make you seem so much more grown up! They popped through this week, and I cried. Haha. I know it sounds silly, but teeth already? I'm slowly getting used to it...
You like to hold my fingers when I rest my hand on your chest. And your floppy ears make me all sorts of crazy for you.
I am so deeply in love with you! You are just such a sweet sweet boy. And you have this really sweet high pitched coo when you're telling us stories. And sometimes your chit chat sounds a little more like you're yelling. You usually use the latter form of communication when you want my attention. And it works :)
Your lips have always been so adorable to me. That upper lip of yours was the first thing I noticed when you were born, and it's one of my favorite features of yours. Sometimes you smile so big, your whole body goes into a little spasm. It's like you just cannot contain your happiness, and I adore that about you.

I keep telling myself you'll stay a baby forever and time will slow down. It's gonna be a real shocker next month when you're rolling over or something. I have a feeling time won't slow down, but I so wish I had a pause button. You are so much fun right now, and just so sweet. I can tell you adore all of us, and we definitely reciprocate the feeling. You have made this family complete, and we are so happy to call you ours!
