Everyone always asks us who you look like and we're not really sure anymore. You look a lot like my baby pictures when I was your age, but I think you're starting to look more and more like your dad too. Gran-Gran Suzanne says it best: He looks like Hudson! And you do. You are very much your own person. We can already tell how independent you're going to be.
We just had your 4 month check up with Dr. M yesterday. You weighed 15 lbs. 12 oz. (90th %) and your length is 24 3/4" (75th %). You had to get 2 shots as well and you were such a trooper. Unfortunately, they were out of the 3rd shot (Prevnar) and we have to go back next week to get that one. You got pretty cranky as the day went on and I don't blame you. No one likes to get jabbed! We've switched your formula from soy to milk (lactose free) and you seem to be doing very well on it. You've gotten a little more patient when waiting for us to make your bottle. In the past, you would scream and cry until the bottle was in your mouth. Now, you watch us as we make it and patiently wait. Such a good boy!
We can tell that your vision has really increased. You can see things very far away now. You love to play peek-a-boo and you love to grab anything....I've finally come to the conclusion that I can't wear dangling earrings anymore! You've found your feet and they're always up in the air now. Your dad and I watch you on the monitor in the mornings as you lay in your crib and play with your feet and hands. You have so much fun entertaining yourself! You've also lost a lot of your hair recently. Your new hair is coming in very blond and I can't wait to see what you will look like in a couple of months.
You LOVE music. No surprise there since your daddy also LOVES music. I think you'll be very well rounded in that department. We've started putting our iPod in your crib and it plays all night for you. You're sleeping SO MUCH BETTER! You usually sleep from 8PM - 3-3.30AM. And you've even slept until 6am (but only once!) We'll get there eventually. You're doing great though!
You are a wonderful baby and growing up so fast. We are so blessed to have you and thank God each day for bringing you into our lives. We love you, Hudson!
