Hank is 4 months old

Hank is four months old.  Hold me.  For real.  And on top of all that people swear he looks 6 months.  Thoughts on that?

Hanky-boo (as your sister so affectionately named you), you are quite the little gentleman full of personality.  You laugh, you cry, and most recently, you talk.  Yep, you coo so frequently its just like you have something to say.  The other night it sounded just like you said ma-ma.

You are still my great little sleeper and horrible little napper.  You usually wake between 7:30 and 9:00 and go to sleep around 10:00.  You sleep 9-10 hours in your crib and its quite fantastic.  The hours in between-mercy.  Some days you hardly nap at all. Some days you will nap an hour or 2.  The secret to a happy Hank?? The thumb! Oh how you love it!!

Usually your happiest time of day is in the mornings.  You'll take a 30 minute to an hour nap or just sit in your swing or chair and watch big sister play until 12 or 1. After mommy feeds you then, you become mr grumpy.  I think you're tired and just refuse to sleep.  Some days I can cuddle you to sleep for 2 hours and some days not at all.  After 5 or so you seem to relax a little after you eat again.  You will lay on your play mat or sit in your swing.  Sometimes you take another 30 minute nap on the way home from Rosies or in Daddy's lap when he gets home from work.  You eat again around 8:30 or 9 and immediately go in your crib.  Most nights you go straight to sleep.

Looks like you are a pretty big fella and I'm guessing you weigh 15 or 16 lbs.  We'll see at the Dr in a few weeks. You are currently wearing size 9 month clothing though some 6 month still fit.

Your favorite thing to do is watch big sister.  We have found when she's in the room you're happier.  You love TV also.  You LOVE chewing on your hands and everyone says you're likely getting a tooth!

Chew, chew, chew. Drool, drool, drool.

Hank, you are momma's cuddle buddy and daddy's football watching pal.  We love you so very much!
