four months old

I can't remember when I moved away from counting Cole's age in weeks, but I feel like I've been saying he's three and half months old for about a month. Today, I get to reset my accuracy 'cause he's exactly four months old.

Though he still wakes up several times during the night, thankfully, the times in between are longer. Sometimes I'm able to get him to go back to sleep when he wakes at 4 or 5 am and get a couple of extra hours of sleep, but today wasn't one of them. So, we were off to an early start on this milestone day! Since the rest of the household were still snug in their beds, bright-eyed Cole and I shared an early morning play time with his favorite toys...which he slobbered all over. I think he's an early teether.

He's holding his head up well, but wobbly at times. He's also got a firm grip. His vocabulary of coos continue to grow. (I love our chats!) And he's a wiggle worm while he sleeps. He's my little baby and I'm tickled that I can still clothe him in outfits with giraffe, bear, and puppy dog feet.

pure honey

I'm back at work this week. (sniff.sniff.) Since Cole's night time routine to wind down starts early, I'm in the room with him shortly after arriving home. I usually read a magazine or play my DS while he dozes off. Tonight, I was stuck with a freshly dozed off baby on my lap without something to flip through, nor an interest to play BookWorm. By some stroke of luck, my cell phone was on the bedside table...

B (upstairs playing a video game): Hello.
K: Hi.
B: You need something?
K: My laptop and a refill of my tea.
B: Okay.

Minutes later, I'm online and enjoying a freshly brewed cup of tea. I love room service!
