4 Months

Dear Lukey,

Happy 4 month birthday - sort of. You don't really get a legitimate 4 month birthday this month thanks to there being only 28 days...

So Luke, you are just getting to be more and more fun every day. You laugh all the time, never stop talking, and smile at everyone you make eye contact with!

I don't know why but for some reason you seem to like your dad more than me. I'm coming to terms with it...he can get you to laugh like no one else! You get SO excited to see him at the end of the day, and he plays with you for as long as he can when he's home.

Ashlee let you borrow Paxton's "bumbo" chair and I think it is in the Top 5 of my favorite baby inventions ever...right up there with the johnny jump-up and the nose-sucker :) You LOVE to be able to sit up like a big boy!
Your new favorite toy is paper...you could play with paper all day. Don't worry - I make sure you don't actually eat it...just suck on it and slobber all over until it shreds into pieces. You get so angry when I take it away from you!
You can roll half-way over now - and usually only when we put something that you want behind your head so you crane your neck up and that makes you turn part way. You still hate tummy-time - it's no wonder you won't roll over...you hate your being on your tummy!

You have started grabbing everything within your reach - and sometimes actually leaning to reach things too. Your newest discovery is your feet...you have actually managed to get them in your mouth a few times. It's actually quite funny.

You learned how to spit too - it's more like blowing bubbles and that "razz-ing" kind of sound. Your shirts are consistently wet because you are drooling ALL the time. I am a little nervous for what will happen when you are teething and have even more spit in your mouth!

Amber introduced you to Carmichael today - you now sleep with him every night and we are going to make you love him...Ambers demand :)

I also decided that it's more like we are buddies, than mom-son. You are one of my favorite people to hang out with, and I can talk to you about anything (only because you have no other choice...) and I just love to be around you!

You are so big, and so cute. I just love love love you!

Love,
Mom & Dad
