4 months


Alternatively titled: “HELLLLOOOOO Ladies!”


Dear Isaac,

Today you are four months old.

And a whopping 20 pounds!  (Average 9-10 month old…)


You are busting the seams out of your 6-12 month clothes, and settling comfortably into the 12-18 month size.

Could you slow down a little, please?  I love babies and you are getting so big so fast!


I took you to the doctor today.  You were so cranky last night (up. all. night) that I was convinced that you had an ear infection.

Not so much.

Just a little stuffy nose. (which makes you KIND OF a chubby little wimp…)


When you were younger, I would always tell people how GOOD you were.  It was one of the first things I would say.  “Oh, Isaac is SOOOO good/easy.”

Well, not so much anymore.


I love you anyway, you know, but let’s just say you are starting to “assert yourself.”  In other words, if you are not strapped to mommy, with a full belly, and being walked around following Joseph or being visually stimulated in some way… you are NOT having it! (read: crying hysterically)

Also, the sleeping through the night thing has gone out the window.  You, little smartie pants, have discovered- why sleep through the night when I can be fed every three hours* in the arms of my mother?

*or constantly from 3 am on, depending on how tired mommy is…


But you are a great napper.

And SO smiley.

And the cutest 20 pounder I know.


I love you SO much.

Now please start sleeping more.  A stuffy nose isn’t THAT bad…

Look at Mr. Chubby McChubbington Cute Pants!!!

And I love that you called your 4-month-old a wimp! You are a mother after my own heart!

Jen said...

LOL! Seriously. Love this chubby baby of yours.

And WOW, I don't think Hayden who started out at 10lbs 10oz was that big at 4 months.

Perhaps are your boobies making cream? ;)

Serious cuteness in a seriously cute diaper.

And that profile photo - I can see some Joseph in him.

He is a whole baby bigger than our 4 1/2 month old!

WELCOME BACK CAITLIN...and thank you for taking such good care of that little "ladies man" He is a charmer to be sure and I can't wait to plant a kiss on those squishy cheeks!!!

That big smile is just to cute! What a little chubber he is, I love chubby babies. I had that child who started off sleeping so well and then it stopped and we were up all night for a long time. Hopefully you are just going through a short phase.
