To me, four months has always been a favorite stage. With Henry I felt like once he hit four months he really started interacting and showing such glimpses into the little boy he'd grow up to be, and it's so fun to look back at photos and videos and see that same twinkle in his eye. In Charlie's case, he's showing the sweet, gentle, and very happy boy his baby self is turning into. He is truly all smiles, and as Henry says, "the sunshine part of our day." In a word, Charlie is easy-going. He goes with the flow, and is rarely upset. This reminds me a lot more of his Dad than myself, so it will be interesting to see if he is more like Hank or me as he grows.
Charlie at 4 months:
officially rolling over, back to stomach and stomach to back
very vocal- lots of high pitched squeals and imitating sounds
laughs and smiles constantly
napping 2x per day, around 9am and again around 1pm
goes to sleep at 6pm, and wakes up 1-2 times depending on the night
always has his hands in his mouth but isn't a thumb sucker like Henry and won't take a pacifier
Charlie babe, it's hard to convey the joy you bring us, without feeling like I'm repeating myself everytime I talk about it. The way you light up when you see a familiar face, those dimples and that smile- every bit of you makes my day, everyday. You are the sweetest thing in the world. I think my favorite part of this stage though, is the way you look at Henry. You can just see how much you love him already, and it's amazing to watch your bond develop a little more everyday. Your Dad and I are constantly laughing at your funny sounds and expressive face, and I can't wait to see what next month holds. If this month is any indication, I'm sure it will be amazing.
Happy four months, sweet boy!
