4 Months

Hunter went to the doctor for his four month check up last week. According to his doctor, he is perfect. Mr. H is quite the charmer. He flirted with the nurses . He smiled and laughed and won everyone over. One nurse commented several times how handsome he is. All I could do is agree! He is a handsome devil! He now weighs in at 13 lbs. 3 oz. and is 25 inches tall. Poor baby did great during his shots. He screamed for a second but as soon as Momma came to the rescue, the world was better. We missed Daddy at this appointment, but he was having fun in Nashville. Next time, Momma and Mr. H get to go too hopefully!

Hunter started cereal last weekend. He is doing pretty good with it. Of course, there is as much on his face as there is in his mouth! He likes to try to help by grabbing the spoon from Momma. This is still a work in progress. We are figuring it out together. He is growing up so fast! I can't believe he is already 4 months old. About 2 weeks ago, Hunter rolled over for the first time. What a huge blessing that this happened while I was home. I don't want to miss his firsts. I just sat and cried, then ran and got the camera. Of course, he wouldn't do it again for the camera. It took several attempts to get him to roll over for the camera. Of course, his Momma's his biggest cheerleader! Here's a video of Hunter doing his newest trick for all of the people who love him. Yes, he is precious!

Mr. H's laugh is amazing. Everyday he keeps us smiling. His laugh is just contagious! I love it more than words can say. This evening, Hunter and Daddy were inside spending some quality time together and I was in the office. All of a sudden, I heard a sound that would melt any momma's heart. Hunter was laughing as loud as he could at his silly daddy. I couldn't help but smile and laugh with him, even from the other room. We'll video this soon so everyone can enjoy the greatness of Hunt's wonderful little laugh. He is a joy!!!!!

Hunter is growing like a weed. He is just as precious as ever and loved to pieces. Here are some highlights from Hunter at 3 months. I fell a little behind!

Hunter got a taggies rattle for Easter. It provides him great entertainment. He loves the mirror especially. He has a mirror over his changing table and lets Momma know if he can't see it.
Hunter got a walker at Granna's house. It has Pooh toys on it. The kid is so smart!! He loves to spin the Tigger ball and move the little knobby balls up and down. He likes anything that he can spin and lights up. It provides a few minutes of free time for mom and dad. He loves sitting up. He's trying to do it on his own now. The other day, he was sitting in his vibrating chair while momma was getting ready and he reached out, grabbed the corner of the wall and tried to pull himself up. Of course, he was seatbelted in and couldn't go anywhere, but he sure tried. Our little man also loves standing up. Here he is standing by himself holding on to the couch cushion. If he is in our laps, he would rather be standing than lying down. He's got strong little legs! It's so cute to see someone so tiny standing up!

Hunter went to his first birthday party a few weeks ago. We celebrated Kamber's second birthday at the Science Spectrum. Well, Mr. H is a party pooper. He didn't quite make it through the party. He crashed about the time we got cake and ice cream. What a silly kid!
More to come when I can type better and someone isn't kicking my keyboard shelf in every two seconds! I'll tell you all about the start of 4 months. Have I mentioned how blessed we are?
