4 Months!

Look who’s four months!

Cody decided he ate enough in his first three months of life that he can take a vacation from growing for a couple months, so he only gained about a pound this month, bringing current weight to 18 pounds.  Plenty big.

We had a super nice, relaxing Christmas!  Ironically, this year’s Christmas was exactly what I was craving last year when I was feeling really rotten in my first trimester of pregnancy: staying in pajamas all day, napping, not really doing anything or going anywhere.  Ahhh.

We did make it to church on Christmas Eve.  Here we are afterwards:

I had limited time to get this shot in very low lighting, so had to do some funky editing :-/

We let Cody have a go at opening some presents, helping him grab and pull the paper, etc.  I think he had more fun than he lets on in this clip:

Cody has been sleeping very well at night, which naturally means he sleeps well during the day(one of nature’s cruel or beautiful Catch-22s, depending on which side your baby is that week) which means the return of some energy for creativity for Mama! I enjoyed making this cheese ball for a little gathering with Caleb’s training class:

And I had some fun wrapping presents with craft paper, recycled greeting cards, glitter, oil pastel rubs, and this string and circle idea I adapted from Real Simple. 😀

And I attempted to take some “arty” photos of Caleb and Cody for fun.  🙂

We’ve found the secret to making Cody smile/laugh for photos or for fun is to wave his arms around.  Anyone else ever had that work with your baby?

And if he’s in the right mood, this makes him laugh:

    Cody is getting cuter and cuter by the day!!! Love the pic of the little “feetsies”:) And your living room with Christmas decor and fireplace looks so inviting. Your packages were almost too beautiful to open, as were ours from you-but glad we opened them!
