J.D. at 4 Months

I was always really good about getting Anna Lee's portraits made. I'm already behind on J.D. I like having them made every 3 months because it gives me a very visible way to mark time. I like seeing the different baby stages and how they change so much so quickly. Because of Anna Lee's hard recovery from her tonsillectomy, J.D.'s 3 month mark came and went. So I decided to grab some quick portraits at Target the other day just to have a few nicer pictures of what he looked like at this stage.
(Please excuse the spit-up...but it definitely goes with who he is right now.)

I have tried for weeks to get a good picture of J.D.'s dimple. He has a cute little dimple on his right side, kind of on his smile line. I was so excited the girl caught a shot where you can see it.

At four months right now, J.D. is a joy. He is changing so much everyday. At his last appointment, he was in the 75% bracket for weight and the 95% for height. Not surprising given his 6' 5" daddy. J.D. is as laid back as they come. He is a happy little dude, except if he has dairy. He is beginning to be much more physically active, starting to grab toys, playing in his excersaucer, and rolling over from his tummy to his back. He loves to be held and especially loves to be cuddled and rocked. He also loves to be outside. Rocking him outside is his absolute favorite. His favorite person by far is Anna Lee. He watches her all day, and she loves to play with him. J.D. slept in the swing for months because of his reflux and the need to be upright, and has just recently transitioned to his bed. We made him cry it out several nights this week, and he will now mostly sleep from 9 pm to 5 am. It has been a nice change. He still loves being in the swing, and would stay there for hours if I let him.
When we found out we were having a boy, I couldn't imagine my life with a son. Now I can't imagine my life without the sweet one we have.

Cute pictures! I can definitely see some Wilson in there, no doubt about it. And I am very glad to hear that he has settled into a happier state of being and sleeps through the night. Talk about a more peaceful home, right?
