4 months

Happy, happy, happy! That describes our little fella. He wakes up happy, he is nice to strangers, he is generous with his smiles and he hugs our faces every time we get close enough. His 4 month check up isn't until later this month so I can't share weight and length but I can share a few more milestones. Brady's been rolling from his tummy to his back for a long time now but just last week in Wisconsin, he started rolling from his back to his belly! After he did that one time, he was rolling all over the living room. We can't keep him on his back anymore. It's great for him that he's mobile, but it presents a few other new problems. He's always hated his carseat but now he HATES his carseat. Add the five point harness into the mix and its kind of a nightmare. Add to this, Logan is worried for Brady's safety and car rides are long. Sleeping has become tricky too. He's a belly sleeper but has started rolling over onto his back while sleeping, and he either hits his head on a crib rail, or can't fall back asleep on his back. I've started sleep training this week to try to win some extra minutes of sleep but its proving tricky and I may become frustrated here soon. I know he is.
 He's had a few tastes of ice cream, and is a fan. We plan to start sweet potatoes this week, I'm ready to bust out the baby bullet. 
 In his short 4 months, he's travelled to Houston, Tennessee, and all of the states between Dallas and Wisconsin. He went camping for the first time this month, toe-tested a lake for the first time, met his dads parents and grandparents for the first time and loved all of it. Is favorite was camping...he's an outside baby for sure!
 He still nurses full-time, puts himself to sleep and mostly naps well. He wears size 6-9 month clothes now and is in a size 2 diaper. 
 He enjoys the pool, loves watching our frog, and his favorite is still being outside. If he's in the front pack, he'll be happy anywhere for any amount of time. He's very vocal, laughing and cooing. He very clearly says, "hi"...he's just mimicking us but we count it as his first word. 
 He sucks on his fingers, usually 2 at a time. It's super cute, and I'm thankful he can soothe himself this way. He also found his toes!
 Here are a few pictures from the last month...
