4 months

Man time is just flying seems like only yesterday Henry was born. In the past two weeks since I have stopped nursing he has chunked up like nobody's business. He seriously has turned into a round ball...and is looking more like my other babies.

Last night I started trying to train him to sleep through the night. He does it sometimes so I know he can. I fed him at midnight and then committed (to myself) not to feed him again until 7. It is so hard to have to hear him cry, but I know it is for the best. He started crying around 4:30...and luckily for me he didn't cry too hard just fussed a little on and of for about an hour until he went back to sleep and then slept until almost 9. I know there are people out there that think this is a cruel thing to do...but I bet they have never had kids that sleep as good as mine. :)

At four months he still isn't bearing any weight on his legs. He kicks them like crazy but he will NOT stand. Fiona on the other hand ONLY stands. Cali and I think they look like the number 10...with fiona being the 1 and Henry the 0.

He is a super verbal baby a gooing all day long. Cali says he is my most expressive baby so far (which isn't too hard...Oliver we called botox baby because he made no expressions).

He also started holding on to little toys and trying to eat them.

I can't believe he is growing up so fast.

We got out the camera today to take some pictures of the boy. He is getting so chubby Oliver said he looks like a bull dog. I think he looks like how I imagined professor Umbridge to look from Harry potter (you know kinda frog like).

He was beyond done at this point.

Cortney got some photography lights. He has been so sick of trying to get pictures inside in the winter without good lighting.

So far I have been having a great Valentine's day. Somehow my kids think it is a holiday for girls and they have been showering me with love all day. Rob even said if we had another baby and it was a girl then Valentines day would be for her too.

They went with Cortney this morning and got me Einstein Bagels (tradition) and some chocolates from costco, Cortney also let the boys pick me out a necklace from forever 21...mainly because that is what Oliver told dad I should get for Valentine's day. Cute. I am so lucky to have such great boys/men in my life. Happy Valentine's day to me.
