4 months old - May 7, 2009

Dear Blaise,

You have been in our lives for four months now and the time has flown! We have been very busy recently and you are keeping us guessing with things like sleep, feedings and schedules! We have had some visitors in the past few weeks which is great - we love showing you off! Abbi and Andre came to see you in March and cousin Kim even moved half way around the world to be closer to you :) You had a great time laughing with Kim! We are also having a great time spending some time every day with Jen since her maternity leave has already begun. You like to take naps in your buggy on the cobblestones...even if they aren't as long as Mommy would like.

We took our first trip with you to cousin Jana's 50th birthday celebration in Seifersbach. You were a very good baby and the trip went well. It was the test run for our big trip in the fall.

You have begun doing lots of cute baby things! You are very interested in your hands and we are starting to worry that you might swallow some fingers! In addition to your coos, you are ah-gee-ing and even have the best laugh I have ever heard! You are just starting to learn about laughing and it changes often, today you squeeled in delight. We love watching you take in your surroundings and we wish we could know what is going through your sweet little head. You really seem to take in a lot and we are trying to challenge you as much as possible. You are so strong now that you can hold up your head by yourself and you seem to be enjoying this very much - the first real sense of independence.

I am in awe of you every day.

Thank you for sweeting our lives. We love you so much.

I love your monthly letters to Blaise! It's a great way to record all of his milestones and what you're loving about his current age. :)

These are such great pictures and I love the little sign! Aah, you've reminded me too that I need to post about Elliot turning 10 months. I'm so behind!

He is so adorable! I feel like I've posted this same thing a billion times already, but it's true. I cannot wait to me the little guy!
