Just a few of the 300 pictures taken:
Today Andy and I celebrate 3 years of marriage. I woke up this morning so thankful for the past 3 years and all the experiences we have shared together. We were talking last night about some of our favorite things about being married, and we both came to the same conclusion that we have just had so much fun being friends, laughing, hanging out, walking through ups and downs, and growing our little family. I was looking back at some old pictures of us, and thought it was fun to see how each year has brought about changes:
It’s been a fun 3 years!
Don’t know if you saw the previous post about Bradford’s thumb sucking attempts, but we spent some time watching and laughing as he searched for his thumb. The process was mildly hilarious as typically he would start from attempting to fit his entire fist in his mouth, to then moving his thumb all around, to finally getting it in his mouth. After several weeks of practice, he has gotten much better and now goes thumb to mouth immediately at the beginning stages of being tired. Finding his thumb has been monumental in him going to sleep with ease, and it is also really cute to watch him curl up and suck his little thumb.
The day today was a great one. We haven’t had a good family day in a while with the craziness of May that has gone on. We spent it just hanging out together at home and then by taking Bradford for his first swim. We, of course, (well I) was trying to snap a thousand pictures while we proudly danced him around in the pool, waiting for a reaction. Bradford remained very consistently one emotion: entirely neutral. He reacted neither happy or sad (except the moment that we dunked him, he did not like that very much) throughout the entire excursion. We, on the other hand, had a blast.
Bradford’s 4 month old stats:
Weight: 15 lbs 4 ounces (75th percentile)
Length: 26 inches (90th percentile)
His growth has been consistent from the beginning, and we are loving all the fun changes. Things he is going now: smiling and laughing all the time (especially when people talk to him and get right up in his face…I think he’s going to be a people person like his dad!), rolling over back to stomach and stomach to back, still sleeping great giving us 12 hours solid every night, showing a mild interest in toys (but still mainly much more interested in people), putting everything in his mouth, beginning to drool a lot, and sitting and standing with support. He’s getting more and more interactive every day which is so fun!
