Aiden Daniel // 4 months

April 10, 2013

Dear Aiden,

You are four months old today.


In the last month, you’ve moved out of your co-sleeper in our bed into your bassinet. You have started being more and more vocal. You have earned the new nickname Mr. Dribbles, because you’ve started drooling like it’s going out of style.


You are growing, little boy. That may be a given, it’s what babies do after all, but as your parents, we watch your growth with a sense of wonder. You are able to sit up and stand for longer and longer periods of time. We still have to pull you up, but you carry most of your own weight.


You used to hate tummy time, but now that you’re stronger, you hold your head up high and seem to enjoy the challenge for a while before you get frustrated. Your focused and excited facial expressions are the best.


You love variety. You enjoy sitting in my lap for a bit, but then you want to move on to other things. You still enjoy your play mat quite a bit. You like sitting in my lap while I read to you. You’ve started recognizing the books I read the most often and you’ve started talking to them while I’m reading to you. It’s so much fun to do this together.


We’ve been going on more walks since the weather is warmer and you happily sit in your carrier or in your stroller, taking in the world around you.


One of my favourite things right now, is that you’ve started putting your hands on our shoulders while we carry you. We love your little baby hugs.

We love you, little boy, with a passion.

Your mama

    He is such a GORGEOUS baby, and his little outfits are the best! If I ever have a boy, you’re going to have to tell me where you buy Aiden’s clothes.

      Aw, thanks Kelly! Will definitely be happy to share sources for clothes if you end up with a little boy! And when might this be happening I wonder? ;)
