You, my love, are Mommy's angel. You have given us another month of delirious joy each time you look into our eyes, and I can not express to you what a GIFT you are to our family. You make each day such a sweet one, and the light that you bring can not even be put into words. I just want to smooch your little face off each and every day! You receive approximately 567 kisses from Mommy each day because your face is like a magnet to my lips! Oh, how I LOVE YOU.
I tell people all the time that I have never seen a baby so full of joy. It exudes from you, child. Your face can express true joy unlike anything I have ever seen. You smile all the time - even when you're crying. I don't know how you do it, but you do. Your joy is contagious and even though you are only four months old, you are already teaching me so much. You challenge me every single day to see the happiness surrounding me. To smile. To laugh. I can't help but compare your innate joy to the joy that we as Christians experience through knowing Christ. You are already an example to me, sweetheart. I love your happy, smiley, lovely little personality. To know you is to LOVE you. Oh, how I thank God for you!
You are the strongest little fella, my sweets. When you're laying down, you try to sit up and I can't get over how strong your little core is! You are going to have 6 pack abs by the time you're one! :) You are rolling over all the time, but your little arm stops you and then you get stuck. You sweet little thing. You are so very aware of your surroundings and you laugh at your brother all day long. You laugh constantly. You chuckle and giggle, and baby face, it is so contagious!
You are eating almost 6 ounces at every feeding, you big boy! We go to the doctor next week, so I'm not sure how much you weigh, but I'd guess around 16 lbs or so. You WERE sleeping like a dream, but the past couple of weeks you've been waking up a couple times to eat. I'm not sure if it's a growth spurt or what, but you suck down your bottle, never opening your eyes, and go back to snoozing.
You are in size 3 diapers and wearing 6 month clothing. Some things are 6-9 months! My jolly little giant.
I swear you said "Mommy" the other day. Glam*Ma heard it, too. :)
Like your brother and your daddy, your eyes tell me exactly what you're thinking. You can give me the most PRECIOUS looks that let me know how much you love me. When you see me in the mornings, you start kicking your legs and arms, opening your mouth with the biggest smile you've got, and you start laughing. It's like you're saying, "MOMMY! It's you! I've missed you so much!" As I smother you with kisses, you bury your face into mine and just laugh! It's one of the sweetest times of my day with you. You are my dreamboat.
You will sit staring at us, just waiting for someone to make eye contact with you so that you can smile at them.
Your favorite toys are Sophie the Giraffe, your play mat, your jumparoo/exercauser, and your lovies. You love to hold something when you sleep and you throw your lovie over your face. You like your pacifier, but I'm not sure that you love it as much as your brother did. We'll have to wait and see. You also suck three of your fingers a lot.
You love bath time, especially if it's with your brother. You laugh and laugh and laugh the entire time you're in there. You're a water baby!
You continue to bless me, teach me, and even encourage me with your precious little disposition. Ezra, I love you with all that is within me. You are my precious little soozie.
