Connor: Four Months Old

2014 March 7

Dear Connor,

We must be in a time warp because I just can’t believe you are already four months old!  They say the days are long but the years (months) are short and boy are they right!  I am usually counting down the minutes until Daddy comes home from work but then before I know it, a whole month has passed and I am writing to you again.

You are a growing boy and did lots of changing this month.  Last week you weighed 15 pounds, 12 ounces at baby group and have been gaining about 6-8 ounces per week.  We have started to pack up the 3 month clothes and pull out the 6 month ones.  Especially in pants — you are one tall boy!  As Daddy likes to say – you have more rolls than a bakery — such a chunk!  Your eyes are still brown and you have a little tuft of hair along the back of your neck.  I think you are starting to teeth because you are SUPER drooly and like to chew on everything.


As always, you had lots of good milestones this month.  Your first trip to the park. Your first Valentine’s day.  Your first time in the high chair.  Tummy time is getting more tolerable.  You survived a trip to Nordstrom with mommy.  Tied for for the most important milestones — you laughed for the first time (It was such a magical sound) — And, you slept through the night!!!  You slept from 11 pm to 6:30 am and it was so nice.  You slept through the night for a whole week before deciding that you were over that and have now reverted back to waking up at 4 am to eat and then go back to sleep again.  It isn’t too bad but we hope you go back to sleeping all the way through again soon.


Breastfeeding is going well and you even consented to take a bottle a few times this month.  It still isn’t your favorite thing but you will do it.  Mommy got a chance to go to the store alone and I even got a haircut.  I love you bunches but sometimes it is nice for us to have a little break from each other.  Baby snuggles are one of life’s greatest joys so I don’t mind that we are basically joined at the hip.  I am guilty of letting you take your nap on me more often than I should because I know soon you’ll be too big and grown up to snuggle with me.  I hope that day is still a long ways off!


I try not to talk about your sister too much in these letters, but she loves you so much and is a big part of you life so I must mention her.  You are starting to show your love for her too.  You smile when you see her and that just makes her day.  She lays down on the floor and shows you toys during tummy time.  She reads you books.  She gives you so many kisses (almost too many!) and tells you that she loves you multiple times today.  I love watching the two of you together and I can’t wait until you start interacting with her more.  She is so proud to be your big sister and always tells people “That is my baby.  His name is Connor.  C-o-n-n-o-r.”


We are all in love you little man and we are so thankful you are part of our life.  Things are certainly busy around here, and Mommy and Daddy are overwhelmed at times, but we both know that our lives are so much better because of  you and your sister.  Thankfully you are an even keeled guy so you are pretty content to go with the flow.  However, you certainly know how to scream when you are hungry!  You are a growing boy and you need your food!

You are right on the cusp of so many exciting developments and I just know the rest of spring and summer are going to be filled with fun.  Thank you for bringing us so much joy!  We love you Con Man!

Happy Four Month Birthday Connor!
