The Bean is Growing Up!

It's been another month since I last updated the blog and I know that's a bad thing.  Our little guy is growing up quickly and it's hard to keep track of everything that is going on.  

Every time we set him down on his back he rolls on his stomach and across the room.  I can't even begin to think about what life will be like when he starts to crawl and walk.  We may have to keep a leash on him.

It's so fun to see him lift himself up in push-up position when he's on his stomach.  We took a little video that we thought was worth sharing:

he's getting so strong and his ability to grab things with his hands is getting great, as well.  He's now 4.5 months old and so dang cute!  I thought he would be crawling by Christmas Day, but Im not sure that will happen.  He seems somewhat content to to just lay on his stomach and grab things and put them in his mouth.  He'd eat a live animal if he could grab it and shove it in his mouth.  He's funny.

We were out all day today and he was such a great boy.  He slept and smiled and stared and grabbed and did all the good things we thought he would do.  Only at the very end of the day did he start to get whiny.  I can't blame him for it, he was probably exhausted and his diaper needed to be changed!  Anyway, when we got him upstairs and changed and fed, we put him down on the floor and played with him.  He was so happy and let us know it.  Check it out:

To end the post, I'll post a picture and Mag and Sam that her dad took.  It's a fantastic picture and I love being able to look at it and think what a lucky guy I am!  Enjoy!
