Liam: 4 & 5 Months

In the blink of an eye, my sweet little baby boy turned 4, and now 5 months old! How is that possible?

Liam has grown so much in the past 2 months. From 3-4 months Liam started sleeping in 5-6 hour stretches, he's really started babbling more, and he loves watching TV, specifically he loved the Olympics. Its so funny how when certain things are on, the TV will catch his eye! When he goes to his Aunt Mandy's house to be babysat, he REALLY likes their big tv, especially when his cousin Charlie has TV shows on with all kinds of bright colors.

At his 4 month appointment, he weighed 14 lbs 13 oz, and is in the 30th percentile for both height and weight. He's starting to get some peach fuzz hair on the top of his head. At 4 months, he was indifferent about bath time. He doesn't get excited, but he doesn't fuss at us when we bathe him either. He's still sleeping in a bassinet in our room at night, and he eats 5 oz of breast milk every 3 hours except for during the night.

We got to celebrate Valentine's Day soon after this pic was taken

By about 4.5 months, he started sleeping through the night! He will usually sleep anywhere from 7-10 hours, which has Lee and I feeling pretty excited!! I'm dreading the sleep regression that I hear comes along with teething. Speaking of teething, he's become a slobbering machine, but we haven't spotted any teeth in his mouth yet.
He loves playing with those piggies

That sweet little smile melts my heart

He loves playing in his jumper, and on his turtle play mat. He has really figured out how to push buttons on his toys to make them play music. His favorite toy currently is his toes... it's so so cute watching him reach for his toes and play with them. He really recognizes faces and he gets excited when his grandma comes over to babysit him. He is starting to look a little snug in his 6 month jammies, so we've recently bought a couple 9 month sleepers to try out.

We are loving every minute with our sweet little miracle, and our families are pretty obsessed too. Here's a few more pics of our happy boy during months 4 & 5.
This cute was all dressed for Valentine's Day and was excited to spend his day playing with Grandma.

This little sweetie loves his jumper! 

My brother always says I have the best "ugly faces" when I'm being sarcastic to him... I see this in Lee's future as well!
