Copeland is 4 Months Old!!!

Copeland turned 4 months old last Friday and I can't believe it!  My how he is growing!  His personality is emerging more and more each day and he continues to be an absolute delight.  He is pretty much all smiles.  Every day at day care his report card says he was cheerful and content. Only once did he come home with a "sensitive" report and that was when he wasn't feeling very well because of his 4 month vaccinations and a cough/cold he's fighting.  Here are some of the things going on with him at this age:

  • He has found his voice and talks to us all the time and also works in some squeals and Tarzan like hollering.  Hilarious!
  • Great hand control - as evidenced by swatting, pushing, and grabbing during schnoz busting (which is what I call it when I have to mine for boogers) and when grabbing for toys.
  • Picking at EVERYTHING!  Especially Daddy's arm hairs and cuticles.  This isn't a new habit but he's getting even better at it with the improved hand control.
  • Even more active than he used to be.  Dressing and diapering him should be an Olympic sport.  He rolls back and forth and scooches forward and squirms and kicks...
  • He loves to try to stick everything he gets ahold of into his mouth, including Mommy's hands, clothes, burp cloths, etc.
  • He absolutely loves his full head of hair and likes to touch it and run his fingers through it.  
  • Sleeping through the night - usually he sleeps for 6.5 to 8.5 hours at a time.  We are very grateful!
  • Splashing in the bath tub!  This has become a new favorite and the other day when I walked into the bathroom the mirror and Daddy were completely soaked from the splashing.
  • He's outgrown all his 3 month clothes and is now wearing some six month stuff but he's kind of at a weird stage where not much of what we have fits him, likely because he is so long and skinny, so he gets to wear the same outfits over and over again. He doesn't seem to mind.
  • He loves watching lights - especially the flickering from the TV.
  • He has already become a teacher's pet at day care.  One of his teachers always gushes about what a doll he is and Daddy says he is wooing all the ladies there.
  • SLOBBER!  I don't think teeth are that far off!
