Week 19 May 31st-June 6th

I had my 4 month check up this week and I'm doing well.  Still in the 75th percentile for height and weight, and I think my head has moved up to the 95th percentile.  Nuts!  I was just shy of 16 lbs, but am now 25 3/4" long.  Even though all of that is exciting, what is more exciting is that I started laughing out loud with some giggles!  We were at the doctor's office, waiting for my pediatrician to come in.  Mommy and Grandma was trying to keep me busy so that I wouldn't start fussing (as if I really ever fuss at all.  Puleez).  So long story short, Grandma started blowing kisses into my thighs and Mommy was smiling really wide at me, and I started laughing.  Not just the one or two short laughs from last week, but a few good giggles!  Mommy's smile got even wider!  They were both soo happy.  Now if only I can do it on demand for Daddy.  Daddy didn't think it was fair that I didn't laugh for him.  So later on this week while Mommy was holding me and because Daddy was jumping around like a monkey, I started laughing for him. Really I was laughing at him, but that's a minor wording issue.

Now that I'm bigger, I'm busting out of my swaddle wrap.  I'm also moving around a lot in my crib when I sleep.  Look at me here.  My head use to be facing the other way...I moved 180 degrees the opposite direction.  Mommy and Daddy are going to have to put the crib bumpers on soon.  They don't want me to get my feet or arms caught between the bars.

I finally got a picture with Auntie Naomi.  She's the youngest of Mommy's cousins.  She's going to be staying at Grandma and Grandpa's house for the summer to take an SAT prep course.  Yay!  That means I get to spend some time with her too!

Last weekend I went to Auntie Nathalie's housewarming party.  It was time for me to nap, but I didn't want to go to sleep.  Too many new things.  Here's a picture of Daddy trying to get me to fall asleep.  It didn't work.

Check out my rolls.  Mommy and Daddy really love kissing them.

Great Auntie Leona, Great Uncle Paul, Uncle Brian, and Auntie Mary came into town this weekend.  They were here for business, but I got to spend some time with them too.  Uncle Brian and Auntie Mary didn't get to meet me when I had my 2 month birthday party.  But better late than never.

Uncle Brian was being silly here.

That's more like it.

I was sleepy at the restaurant.  It was way past my bedtime.  When I'm tired, I tend to rub my face into whoever is holding me.  Look at Grandpa's shirt.  That's my drool.  :)

 I woke up in time for Auntie Mary to take a picture with me.

Here's a link to a video that Daddy took of me.  Enjoy!


  1. The video is awesome! The fun's really starting now. Enjoy!

  2. Oh the video is too too too too cute! Love it! He looks so big already, and I haven't met him yet--so sad :( :( :( The pic of your dad's shirt is hilarious too.
