Noah's 4 Month Update

Ahhh!!!! Where is the time going? It sounds so cliche, but I can't believe how old Noah is and how quickly the last four months have gone! Sometimes I just look at him and cry because I feel like this is all going to be over before we know it. I LOVE spending my days with Noah. I'm so grateful that I'm able to stay home with him. I love having a sweet little buddy with me all day. You know the saying, "The grass is always greener on the other side"? Well, for Josh and I at least, the grass of parenthood really is "greener". WAY more challenging, but greener. I feel like we're the luckiest people on the planet and Noah has honestly made our lives so much happier and more meaningful (another cliche, I know). Anyways....onto what's been going on with Noah this last month.

He has a new awareness of his body. He's always chewing on his hands and he's started reaching for things and touching things while he's looking at them. He's also fascinated by his feet when he notices them. He'll just stare at them in cute.
He also loves to sit up (assisted, of course) and is getting stronger every day. He's also started to really enjoy tummy time.
He's started moving a lot more! When we unswaddle him when he wakes up in the morning, his arms and legs go flying all over the place, to the point where I'm like uh, don't hurt yourself there. He also arches his back and kind of pushes off the ground and moves around a little bit.
Our little mover. He was where the monkey is laying when I got in the shower. This is what I found when I got out.
He's getting chunky and is in size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes. At his 4 month appointment he was 15 pounds, 6 ounces and a little over 25 inches long.
We think we're making progress with his carseat, finally! Noah has generally hated his carseat, but has been doing a lot better since we took out the infant head control piece. I think it' s because he's able to move his head more and can look around.
We're still dealing with the "45 minute intruder" at naptime, which has been going on for three months now! The list of things I've done in an attempt to fix this would amaze you, so I won't go there.  But, the last week or so, one of his naps each day has been anywhere 1.5 to 3 hours!

Still taking daily walks in the baby carrier (love that thing!).
Rockin the shades on our walk.
Snoozin' in the baby carrier
We were also able to spend some time outside this month. He loved it!

This month also included a visit from the grandparents

and Noah's first hike.
And just for kicks...
