But today all he really wanted to do was shove his shirt (and the sticker) in his mouth.
But I still managed to get a few smiles out of him.
He needed to lie down and take a break so he could really concentrate on the sticker on his chest.
The photo shoot was over and it was time to play! A little sticker is not very interesting when you have bumble bees and butterflies to reach for.
We went to his 4 month appointment today and he had to get shots again. But he didn't let sore legs keep him down.
A bit about Andrew at 4 months:
-He weighs 13lbs 11 oz (25%) and is 24 inches (25%) long. I was a little worried he’s still so small, but Mom reminded me that I was only 14 pounds at 7 months so he comes by it naturally.
-He easily rolls from back to belly and belly to back. I worry about leaving him alone on the floor for fear he'll roll into a table or the dog. He just doesn't stay still for long. I'm afraid he'll be crawling soon.
-He loves to chew on his feet. He shoves his big toes into his mouth! Strangers are always commenting on him eating his feet when we're out and about.
-He's still eating about every 2 1/2 - 3 hours during the day. Sometimes he'll surprise me and go a little longer, but 3 is really his max unless you want to see a meltdown. It's like he's sure I'm going to decide not to feed him this time.
-He's not sleeping through the night yet. There's not even much of a pattern. Some nights he'll sleep until 1AM some nights 3AM. But he always wakes up hungry. And he always wakes up ready for the day with a big smile, usually around 7AM.
He is just a joy and a delight. My love for him continues to grow every day, and it amazes me.
(I have to add...as I was working on this post Andrew pooped while he was in my lap. Unfortunately, he was wearing a size too small diaper since that was all I had in the diaper bag earlier. Oops...amazingly it was the first time he's pooped on me. And then he peed on me when I went to give him his bath.
It was just that kind of day.)
