Four Months: A Baby HDawg Update


Nope, that's not an ad for the world's cutest baby ever. That's just my son. Who just so happens to be the world's cutest baby ever. Well, in my world, at least : ) Especially with that slobbery smile! I know I'm annoying and say that every time I post a picture of the bebe, but I can't help myself.

Little H is already four months old. Actually, it took me awhile to get this post up, so he's already four and a half months old. Time flies.


The past month with this sweet boy has been amazing. Every single day he grows more and more into a sweet, charming little fella. He's been laughing at us for awhile, but recently we've started to see his silly side which just makes me swoon. My little guy is a jokester!


In the looks department, he's looking more and more like David every day, which I love. His eyes have stayed very blue and his sweet little hair is turning blonder by the minute.


His favorite toy is one that Santa brought him- a jumperoo. We've laughed so hard we've had tears in our eyes over this kid in the jumperoo. He. Loves. It. And is not afraid to show it by doing a little Irish jig side to side while sqealing like he's a pig in mud. Hey, I can't blame him. That jumperoo is fly. HDawg also still loves his books- currently, his favorites are all things Dr. Suess, as he loves the colorful illustrations and the sing-song lyrics. But the thing he loves the most? "The Ants Go Marching" song. All you have to do is sing that song and he is in heaven. I'm sure it doesn't hurt that I make the best voices to "the little one stopped to tie his shoe" and "boom boom boom boom." I've got a voice as smooth as silk, I'm telling ya. Not. 


In the last month, we celebrated our first Christmas together as a family, which was wonderful. Just pretend like I have makeup/brushed my hair (or my teeth, for that matter!) in the Christmas morning picture above. We also dealt with H's first illness- he had the flu and then, as a result of his congestion, a double ear infection the next week. So. Not. Fun. Poor little guy just couldn't feel good! But we got him on meds and got him feeling back to 100% as quickly as we could. We also worked on sleep training our sweet baby who is now happily sleeping through the night! I'm so proud of our little man.


Currently, H weighs almost sixteen pounds. Yup, he's a biggin'. But I love that! He's still exclusively on momma's milk, although David is ready to introduce rice cereal (our pediatrician said H is ready when we are). The crazy mom in me isn't quite ready to go that route yet... he's already growing up so fast!

Oh and I also started back to work two weeks ago. I'm so very, very blessed to be able to start back with a part-time schedule and until H starts his daycare in March, he's staying with family (my mom and sister-in-law, who are wonderful with him!). It's really been a great transition so far.


I cannot believe how much he's grown in four and a half months. My baby will be in college before I know it!! David and I are trying to remember to sit back and savor every minute... life is so precious and we are so, so blessed to have our sweet baby H!

  5. His 2 month picture cracks me up, so serious H and so big all of a sudden! Easton also was a master of the sideways jig in the jumperoo (we have the same one). Once he hit around 7 months though, he decided he was way too cool for it :(

  17. Wow, 4 months! He's a cute kid! It goes by sooo darn fast. We have a 2 yo and it's nuts how fast they grow. Enjoy it! Once they start walking/running/jumping/reaching their hands up on the counter blindly pulling things down, you're life as you know it is over. :)

  18. Your little guy is adorable! It's been fun for me to see your posts about him because I have a little baby girl the same age (4 months). I have to ask--what was involved in your sleep training, and what time does he go down for the night?? My little lady (who slept through the night at 6 weeks old) is now up every 1-2 hours at night and I'm starting to get nutty from sleep deprivation!

  19. I'm in the same boat as the post above, my 4 month old slept fine at 2 months and now it is ridiculous, up every hour and sometimes more!! I can't take the crying though with cry it out, it breaks my heart.......
