4 Months Old

Harry is 4 month old!  For some reason I feel like he is much older than he is, maybe it is cause he is so HUGE!  He is like a fatter and juicer version of a regular baby.  He wears all 6-9 month clothes, and even then most of the buttons are popping open.  He worships Clark, and no matter how rough or mean Clark is he just giggles and waits for more.  He gets a big kick out of Clark "talking" and always get a huge smile on his face when he hears him.  Right now he is all about eating whatever he can get into his mouth, and kicking his legs.  He kicks and kicks all day long.  By some miracle he is still sleeping through the night, although I am waiting for that to end any day now (he is due for another growth spurt, which for Harry means constant feedings).  He loves to sit in Daddy's massage chair, and taking bubble baths.  We have started feeding him rice and applesauce, but he is just not that into eating regular food (the only thing I can figure is that his cheeks are just too fat and it is hard for him to chew and swallow).  He likes to sit up, and if he is laying on his back he does these funny little stomach crunches trying to get up...I am surprised he doesn't have a little baby six pack.  He hasn't rolled over yet (except for that one time a couple months ago) he just hates being on his stomach, he will just bury his face in the carpet and scream.  He's got the biggest bluest eyes, always so alert to what is going on, taking it all in...planning his next move.  He has already mastered the fake cry, and has the cutest pouty lips.  I am a total sucker for this fatty nugget.  He melts my heart and brings such joy to our family.  I don't know what we ever did without him...
