You have become quite the chatterbox this month. You love the mornings and after your 6:30 am bottle  you sit and "talk" and smile with me for a long while. You are taking 6 ounces of milk every 4 hours during the day, you take your last bottle at 10:30 at night, and then you sleep until about 5:30 in the morning most of the time. You are wearing size 2 diapers and are sort of in between sizes in clothes right now (0-3 months are becoming a bit snug and 3-6 month clothes are too long). You like to be held upright against my chest and sometimes when you are cranky the only way to calm you down is to walk laps around the house! You have been such a joy to your Daddy and me. You have changed from such a serious little guy into a happy, cooing, smiling baby.
Love you to the moon,
Your Mommy

You have also learned to smile and "talk" this past month. You will ooohh and gaaaa until you wear yourself out as long as someone is sitting in front of you and talking with you. You are not much of a morning person. You are the happiest/smiliest at about 8-9:00 at night. You are wearing size two diapers, take 6 ounces of milk every 4 hours, and are in between the 0-3 and 3-6 month size clothes. You sleep so well at night and most days we have to wake you up for your morning bottle. You and your brother are still sleeping in mommy and daddy's room and when we go to get you up in the morning you always have both arms over your head fast asleep! You like to sit up against the corner of the couch in the evenings and you looove to stare at the tv. I can't wait to see what you can do by the end of this month! 
Love you to the moon,
Your Mommy

  1. They are simply precious! You will be so glad in years to come that as busy as you have been since their birth that you have taken the time to tell their story month by month in pictures and comments. We keep them in our nightly prayers
