4 months!

Today my little boy is 4 months! I changed up his monthly picture. His bath tub we put in the sink is getting a tad bit small. Makes me sad but the age he is now I absolutely love! His personality is starting to show and he is so funny!
He def has his daddy's big 'ole round head! lol

Someone mentioned today that he is starting to look more like me and I can def see it! I always pick him up and hold him like he's hugging me. The day he actually does for real I think I will cry! So sweet!

We decided that every month on his 'month-day' as Blake called it, we're going to get him a present. We buy him stuff all the time obviously but I just thought this would be something special. So today this is what he got...
Every time he eats he always plays with his bib and grabs it. This is soft and the body makes a crinkly noise when you touch it plus the feet are for teething so he can stick them in his mouth. So far he loves it! I found it   at Target obviously. My favorite place for baby stuff!

The other day I saw online that one of our local libraries was having a book sale. Adult books were $2 and children books were 25 cents! We went the first day it started and I got him a ton of books. And today I discovered a store we have here called McKay's. It sells used books and a ton of other stuff. I found him even more books and the best part is they are all Mickey Mouse! His book collection is getting big. One day when I have time I found an idea on pinterest that I plan on doing with them but for now this is where they go...

I'm not sure if it's just Tennessee or not but when you have a baby you can sign them up for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library and every month they get a book. And it's free. I forgot about it until someone mentioned it to me so I signed him up finally the other day! I have 2 books from the Imagination Library that I bought at the book sale and they are super cute! So I can't wait for him to start getting them!

Levi's next doctors appointment is May 11th. It will be his '4 month' check-up and I think he gets shots again :(  Since the mess up with his insurance we got in late on his 2 month check-up so his doctor said to come in at 4 1/2 months just so it's enough time to tell how he's growing. Little boy is getting heavy!

This is his personality lately. He discovered he has a voice...

I love this little boy soooo much! He is the best thing in this world and I couldn't imagine not having him! I am so thankful!

First Time Camping!

Sunday we went to Dale Hollow Lake/Obey River for 3 days and went camping. Levi loves being outside! It was a little chilly so we didn't get to do as much as we would have liked to but oh well.

 First Campfire!
 He loves to look at the trees.
This is why I love the state I live in. So pretty!

Levi will be 4 months tomorrow! The time has gone by so fast. And it's crazy how much he has changed!
This is how he wakes up in the morning. Love this little boy to pieces!

My Alarm Clock

Wouldn't you love for this to be your alarm clock. Every morning at 7 this is what I wake up to. No crying. Just him moving around and making noises. Love him to pieces!





So many faces :)

Another first!

This little boy slept through the night for the first time! Yay! He fell asleep at 7 and woke up at 8:30 and finally feel back asleep at 10. I heard him making noise and moving around at 6:45 so I look over and this is what he was doing...
He managed to lose a sock and always pulls the blanket up so his feet can stick out. He ate at 7am as he watched Mickey Mouse Club house and he's still watching it just smiling and laughing. He now has one foot sticking out from the blanket tho! Lol
Silly baby. 

Thank you jesus for such a happy easy baby!

According to the Baby Center Milestone Chart in the Advanced section for 3 month old's it says babies can bring hands together and bats at toys....

Exhibit A:

My little boy is getting so big!

On the same chart there are things in the 4 and 5 month age groups he can do also like coos when you talk to him. If I say talk to me, he does! He holds toys in his hands. He plays with his hands and feet allllllll the time. Even on the 6 month chart it says imitate sounds. I make a noise and he can do it back. So funny.

His personality is def starting to show and it's so funny. I can't wait to watch him grow up!
He was watching Mickey Mouse Club House this morning and was happy as a clam!
He plays peek-a-boo!

He's now eating 5 ounces and normally goes to bed between 7-8pm and sleeps until about 2am. He eats and goes right back to sleep until 6 or 7 am. Then he's awake until about 10 and takes a nap. Then pretty much stays awake all day. So glad I have such an easy baby!

Growing boy :)

Levi is officially in size 2 diapers today! He can barely fit in the size 1 so we went and got the size 2 and I'm super glad because we can buy boxes now instead of the plastic small packs!

And.....

We got him the toy I've been wanting to get him!
video
He normally hates laying on the play mates but he is having a blast! He's kicking and talking. So funny!

He grabbed the toy on it and got mad because he couldn't let go! lol

Two firsts for Levi...

Two years ago this May Nashville had a realllly bad flood. Our mall got flooded and has been closed ever since but it finally opened one week ago today! Blake and I wanted to go see how different it was because they had to gut the entire thing. Over the weekend there was an hour wait just to park! So we waited until Monday to go. All of the kiddos are on spring break this week so we thought it would be busy but it wasn't to bad. 

Levi is in love with the Mickey Mouse Club House show. Since he's to young obvi to get him an Easter Basket full of candy I had no clue what to get him...until...We saw the Disney store! I had a regular Mickey Mouse in my hand but when we were checking out I saw this...
I knew I had to get it for him since it's his first Easter. It even smells like chocolate!

The mall we went to didn't have the Easter bunny and I knew I wanted him to get pictures done so yesterday we went to a different mall and he got his picture taken for the first time with the Easter Bunny!
This picture makes me laugh because the Easter bunny wasn't very good at holding babies and since he couldn't see what he was doing he kept squishing him. He looks way chunkier than he really is. Oh well! lol

And his second first was last night we gave him baby food! He had the Gerber brand in those little plastic packs that come in sets of two. He had peaches and I'm not sure if he liked them or not. I think the whole spoon thing confuses him because he tried to suck it off. I don't know that I'll give him baby food everyday but maybe once a night or so until he gets the hang of it. He's still got a while until he can really eat it all of the time.

Today we went grocery shopping at Walmart and we were looking at diapers. It's super annoying that some brand of diapers in small sizes don't come in the big boxes. We were using Huggies and they worked really well until I put the size 1 on him. They don't fit right and they sometimes leak. My cousin was telling me that some brands are for girls and some are better fitting for boys. Not sure if that's true but he told me to try Luvs. He has a 9 month old son. When I first opened the pack I was like what is this and even asked him if he was sure they worked. They're a lot thinner than Huggies but they work a million times better and aren't bulky when he pees in them. So while standing there looking at the diapers there was a thing that was playing music for kids/babies. Like sing-a-long songs and stuff. Levi kept staring at it and was giggling. I found which cd was playing and we decided to get it for him. He loves anything that plays music and bright colors on the tv.

I got him one other thing and decided that this would be his first "Easter Basket".
I'm excited for him to start using his Bumbo!

This was before we went to see the Easter bunny. His expression is funny...
Another thing that annoys me...We got his outfit at Target. It's the Carter's brand. It's the 3 month size and the shirt fits fine but the shorts were really tight and almost didn't fit. So I'm thinking what the heck. Then I looked at the tag and the shorts were newborn size. Yet they were attached to each other with one of those plastic things they put tags on with. How annoying right?! So now he can only wear the shorts a few times. I guess next time I'll make sure I look and make sure they match the sizes right!

We don't have any plans for Easter other than relaxing and cooking some yummy food!

I'm soooo happy my little miracle made it into this world and gets to enjoy so many firsts and there are a lot more to come!
