January 26th - 4 MONTHS - I'M OFFICIALLY A FUN DUDE....

Hi everybody! I had my 4 month birthday on January 16th and to celebrate, mommy took me to the doctor to get shots. But this time, the experience was better because she drugged me up with Tylenol before the visit. The shots weren't too bad and I surprised the doc by showing her my healthy weight of 14.6 lbs, and 23 inches. The doc complimented by telling me I was ready for a Michelin commercial! I was psyched - mommy just laughed.

I've turned into a pretty fun dude. I now recognize people, smile, talk, and have started to play on my tummy more. We're still working on the "tummy time" game but the one game I've gotten really good at is that "bubble game." Basically, I blow bubbles and slobber and if I can convince someone else to blow them back, I get very competitive and keep playing the game - all whilst smiling. It's a blast.

I've gotten to be really well behaved. I now sleep through the night almost consistently, I can play by myself for quite a while while mommy gets ready for work in the morning, or cooks dinner at night. I really like my nanny Tami, and I strive to make her life easy. One example of how good I am was yesterday morning - here's how it went down:

Mommy and Daddy were running Carlsbad half-marathon. They woke me up early in morning to eat- daddy said that I had to empty mommy's boobs so she could run faster. He always talks about drainage in the Zoot shoes so I think there was a relation to liquid weight and speed. They put me in this really warm fuzzy cozy outfit that Uncle Vinu gave me. Don't I look cool?

When we got to the race, we had packed everything but daddy forgot my diaper bag, with my mid-morning milk bottle in it. Mommy almost didn't want to race but I gave her a kiss and told her I have stored extra milk in my cheeks, and would be a good boy for Uncle Drew and Aunt Ashley. Mommy and Daddy both had good races. I secretly know that it's because they wanted to rush back to me. I'll admit I was hungry when mommy finally met me but I was distracted by the excitement of her PR race. We celebrated for about a minute, and then I made mommy feed me in the car. I didn't care about her sweat or anything, I was just happy to snuggle up to her and eat.

As you can see, this baby stuff is getting fun and if you come visit, I will interact with you and we can play the bubble game! Come on over!
