Letter to my Four month old boy....

Dear Nathan-

Today you are four months old!! Time is just racing by. Fall is almost here. The weather is cooling down and the nights are cold. I love this time of year!

You are growing so fast! According to our scale at home, you weigh 19.5 lbs! This past month you have discovered your feet, learned how to roll over, and have found your voice! You babble to us all the time now. I so wish that I could understand what you are saying. You love to yell really loud and then laugh. Sometimes I think that you just yell to hear your own voice. I can't wait until you can say Mama. We think that you are teething now. :( My poor baby. It seems like you are in pain a lot. You are constantly drooling and chewing on anything that you can get your hands on. This has caused you to completely alter your sleeping habits. You wake up every two hours now. Mama is so tired! I feel so sorry for you. I wish that I could take away the pain. Hopefully we will see some teeth soon. On the brighter side, you have stayed with Grandma a couple of times while Mama got out of the house. You have done so well with that! I just wish that we could get you to take a bottle of pumped milk. But you know better! You would much rather nurse! :) Mama was gone for two hours yesterday and I missed you so much! I can't imagine my life without you!

Four months has gone by so quickly. I miss you being so small and new. But I am looking forward to the future too! I can't wait until you say your first word, learn how to sit and crawl, and take your first steps. I love you so much Nathan Cole!

Always,
Mama
