Four Months

Oh, my beautiful boy.

Four months. Four months?!

This right here is what I go through to get one picture for your monthly photo shoot.
And that's not counting...the rest. (I refuse to list the complete number on the grounds that I may incriminate myself and you.)

You're still a very zen little fellow. You forgive us for the crazy ways we dress you up. And you can pretty much sleep anywhere, any time:

Unless it's the middle of the night. In that case, it's near Mom or nothing.
We haven't had your check-up yet, so I'm not sure how much you weigh. My right arm is definitely getting stronger from toting you around in your car-seat, though.

You can roll over both ways now, so tummy time is not quite the torture it used to be.

You smile and laugh and blow bubbles and drool and stick out your tongue and clutch your blanket and so much more. And everything you do is the cutest thing we've ever seen. Because you are the cutest thing we've ever seen. Each one of your sisters is head over heels in love with you. There are actual fights about whose turn it is to hold you.
Your name means laughter and it is fitting. You make me laugh when I feel like sighing. You help me get up in the mornings when I'd rather pull the covers over my head and stay there. You center me when we're nursing and it's just the two of us. Your blue eyes meet mine, you smile that lopsided smile, and I know you are the most fantastic, unexpected thing God has ever entrusted to me and I feel unbelievably blessed.

So cute! I love all those sleeping pictures. I have a picture of me as a toddler, standing up against a couch, completely naked and asleep. It's a family favorite :-) But neither of my children are especially sleep prone so I've yet to get any fun sleeping ones like face planted in spaghetti, asleep under a table or even in a exersaucer.

Also, did you just take pictures of him with a blank piece of paper and add a font later? Mind blown!

I love all the "extra" photos. I don't dare tell you have many pictures I actually take for Roman's monthly post either.

I promise to be candid and you can be too. Blogging is best when it's a conversation. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and respond. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
