Jude is 4 months

Our baby boy is 4 months old today.  He is sweet and smiley and happy and content and we can't help but smile when we look at him.  He is our precious Jude.  

Here is what he has been up to this past month:
  • Jude's newest trick is rolling over from back to belly to back to belly. He almost immediately goes onto his belly if laid on his back.  
  • Sleep.  He was on a roll there for awhile and was getting three good naps during the day and 5-6 hour stretches of sleep at night.  Now that he is rolling over, we had to take him out of the woombie.  Let's just say we are in an adjustment period...
  • This child loves to be talked to and loves to talk back.  He will coo and smile and almost sing to anyone who will listen.
  • A big part of Jude's personality is his 'go with the flow' attitude.  This is most definitely the case when he is spitting up, which happens about twenty times a day.
  • Like his brother and sister before him, Jude has started sucking his fingers every now and again.  Right now he prefers his left pointer and middle finger, but there is still time for him to change his mind.  If those are the fingers he chooses, he will be copying his big brother Luke.
  • The weather has warmed up and Jude loves hanging outside looking up at the trees and sky.  Good thing, because we have been outside a lot lately.
  • Jude nurses four to five times a day and gets two bottles at night.  He doesn't miss a meal.
  • Luke and Lily are still his favorites.  He loves it when they talk to him or engage with him.  The feeling is mutual.
  • Bath time with Daddy is always a highlight of his week.  Getting a rub down in warm water is definitely his jam.
This boy of ours has stolen our hearts and it is bittersweet to watch him grow. We love seeing each new thing he does, but we also adore cuddling him and memorizing every little feature and movement.  He is a keeper.
