Four months already?

Where has the time gone?  My sweet little man is changing so fast! He gets the giggles now...  Mama and Daddy are his favorite comedians, some days.  He's starting to teethe, too, which makes me very nervous.  He's been such a well-mannered little guy, I don't want him to be fussy :(  But he's handling it pretty well.  We go in for his four month checkup next week, I'm pretty sure he's up around 16 lbs and he's probably grown another inch.

He's outgrown his bassinet so we've had to move some furniture around to make room for his pack-n-play in our room.  I'm still not ready for him to sleep in his own room yet.  That, and we don't have his mattress for his crib!  Ooops.  We're planning to make that big move in July when we come home from our extended trip to Kentucky.  Plans are in full-swing for his christening in early July.  He'll be christened at the church where my sister, two cousins, Maggie and I were christened, Daniel was baptized there, I was married there...  It's very special because we grew up in that church.  It was right next door to my mom's parents' house (which is now part of the church as a counseling and meeting area).  The day we're having Hayden christened, church is scheduled to be outside under a big tent down by Owl Creek- which holds fond memories for many of my cousins and me.  We played down by that creek so many springs and summers...  It's a very special thing for us to be able to do this.  It's important to me that Hayden be officially welcomed into God's family.

Little dude is trying really hard to sit up by himself and it takes a LOT of entertaining for him to want to stay on his back anymore.  He seems to want to skip rolling over in favor of just walking.  He loves standing up- with our help, of course.  Nap-time is actually a fairly regular occurrence in our house now, and he's still sleeping like a champ through the night.  I'm so lucky!

Hayden will typically wake up between 5 and 6:00am and want a diaper change and a bottle.  With me, he usually just conks out in my arms while I'm burping him.  With Mike, he'll want to stay up and play...  But he'll usually play himself back to sleep within an hour or so.  He'll typically sleep till about 10:30 or 11 (which is LOVELY for me!) and then we're up for the day.  He's taking naps around 1:00, 5:00 and 8:00 and will generally sleep an hour or two.  We're learning to live together, the three of us, now that Michael is home.  I'm thinking about starting yoga next week- I feel so old and stiff- and I know that I'm going to have an active little boy to keep up with!

We're so excited about our upcoming trip...  We'll be in Louisville for almost a month, so- no excuses!!!  Come visit!
