Stafford's 4 Month Update

Stafford at 4 months

Dear Stafford,

Once again it has been a fast, busy month!  You are growing too fast and Mama keeps trying make time stand still.  Being your Mama is the most amazing thing I have ever been a part of.  Your Daddy and I love you so very much.  You make us smile all the time.  I always tell people that you make me want to have 100 more babies.  One of our friends at church says you have a "happy heart" and that is so true.  You have a happy heart and you make our hearts happy!

This has been a busy month for you!  We traveled home again for Thanksgiving.  You got to meet the rest of your cousins and great-grandparents. You were a fabulous backseat driver!!

You are still wearing your 0-3 month clothes but Mama will be putting those away soon.  You had your 4 month appointment this week and you weighed 14 pounds.  You were 25.5 inches long.  You had 3 shots and you were really brave!  You only cried a little bit.  You still wear size two diapers and love having your diaper changed.

You are a great sleeper and we are working on taking better naps.  You usually go to bed between 7:30 and 8:30 and get up around 7:30 or 8.  You have started napping in your crib.

Just recently you have started playing with toys.  You can grasp them and you even shake your rattle.  You love playing in your little gym and spend most mornings there.  You have started to notice the lights and the music.  In the car you sing to your CDs.  Whenever I play your CDs you say "oh oh oh oh" over and over.  You are just a happy baby and fun to be around. You talk and play all day.  You are very social and smile and show your dimple to anyone who will talk to you.

You make being parents so rewarding and fun.  We love watching you learn new things and seeing things through your eyes.  I find myself caught between excitement for milestones and knowing that each day could be the "last time you did this" before catching on to something new. Pretty soon you will be doing all sorts of new tricks!

We love you little guy!  We thank God for you everyday and we pray that you will know Him at an early age.  We pray for your sweet wife, that she will love Jesus as much as she loves you.  I pray everyday that you will never wonder how much or  if we love you and that you will always love your parents.  We love you so very much.

Daddy & Mama
