Summer: Part II

We've had a great summer so far and Tayen had his first 4th of July! I got him a red, white, and blue romper that says "Team USA" on it. I figured it was perfect because not only could he wear it on the 4th, but he could wear it during the olympics since we LOVE the olympics at our house!

The Saturday before the 4th we went to Che's Grandma Miles' house and had our annual Independence Day party with all of the Miles side. We had so much fun visiting everyone and especially watching all the little kids play on this huge blow up slide. I hated myself for forgetting my camera because they were just too funny. I think they hardly ate because I never saw them get off that thing except for a cookie ha ha. It was this huge blow thing that they could jump on, but it also had a big slide with hoses on the top to spray water. It looked like a blast actually. Tayen had fun getting held by everyone and being outside in such nice weather.

Wednesday, July 4th, we went shopping as a family to the mall and a few other places. For lunch we barbecued and ate underneath our new canopy. It was such a beautiful day, I loved eating outside. Later that evening we went to my parents for a barbecue, played ringtoss, and enjoyed the outdoors. We had so much fun on Tayen's first 4th of July!

4 Months

My little boy turned 4 months today (July 18) and I can't believe how fast he is growing! I look back on his newborn pictures and can't believe it. I feel like I just had him! He is the sweetest baby and I can't get enough of his smile. AT 4 MONTHS TAYEN IS:

14 pounds and 26 in long. He is in the 90% for height and the 40% for weight.

Smiling A LOT...and it is the cutest thing. He's been smiling for a while now, but it is now constant.

Laughing: When I sing popcorn popping, zipping up his jammies, making funny sounds with my mouth, high pitched talking, when I peek in his crib in the morning and he's awake staring at me, and when he sees Dad.

Rolling over on his side: He grabs his little feet and rolls over right on to his side and then continues to play with his feet. It's the funniest thing.

Possibly teething: He drools quite a bit and loves to eat his blankets and burpies.

Sleeping 8-10 hours at night

Eating every 2-3 hours

Napping for 3-5 hours a day (not all at once)

In size 2 diapers and probably going to grow out of those very soon ha ha.

So happy and excited when Dad comes home from work. He laughs for no apparent reason, just looking at his Dad makes him go crazy, I love it.

Loving his playmat. He has loved his playmat for a while, but now he gets super excited when I put him underneath it and sometimes he falls asleep.

Moving from place to place on his tummy. He can turn around in a full circle in seconds when I put him on his stomach. It is crazy. He is a mover with those limbs ha ha.

Loving the outdoors. He is so fascinated when we go outside and sit on the step. We just look around and watch the cars go by. He loves it.

Splashing in his bath. He loves taking baths and has the best reaction when I put him in for the first time.

Sleeping to the sound of rain (on his sound machine)

Sitting really well in his bumbo

Fascinated with the bright colors on Disney Jr.

Loves having snuggle time with Mom.


Love our little family!! Can't imagine life being any better than this. Happy 4 months my growing boy, I love you!
