Bradley {four months}

You, my sweet baby Bradley bear, are four months old!! This month has been a so.much.fun with you. I am amazed..daily..but how much you've changed and learned. You have so many new little 'quirks' that have really kept me on my toes. Your daddy and I love you so very, very much!!
We went to your four month appointment on Monday (4/8/13) and were very happy to hear what a healthy boy you are! You weighed in at 17lbs and were 27'' long, 85th percentile for weight and 95th for height. You were given 4 shots and handled them like a champ; seeing you get shots still seems to make me tear up though. You are still wearing size 2 diapers and 6-9 month clothes. You are eating about 4oz every 2-2.5 hours and are still exclusively breast fed. 

This month it seemed like we watched a lot of basketball! Sometimes you didn't quite understand all the excitement, but you loved the quality time with mommy and daddy. You also reached a milestone this month: rolling over front to back, and back to front. You are also "talking" so so much. You "coo" and squeal all the time; your smile is contagious.
We celebrated your first Easter. We've learned that holidays are so much more enjoyable now that you're here. It was so fun to dress you up, spend time with family and show you what the Easter bunny brought you. You are much more interactive with your toys now- you love your O-ball and anything that "rattles." You'll put just about anything in your mouth, and your drool have been out of control this month! 

You are still sleeping throughout the night, which makes mommy so happy. You are a very curious baby- you always want to be in an upright position to be able to look around. You especially like when we read to you; you always seem so calmed just by our voices and look like you're just taking in everything we're saying to you. 
Braddles, you are honestly the best thing that has ever happened to us. I know we tell you that a lot, but it's so very true. You have taught us patience, time maintenance, and unconditional love..not just with you, but with ourselves as parents as well. We strive daily to be the best parents we can for you. We can only hope we can you realize just how very much you are loved!
