Alternatively titled: “HELLLLOOOOO Ladies!”
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…
