Dayton: 4 Months

This has been a full and packed month! Dayton took his first plane ride to Tulsa and was dedicated. He's growing like a weed and had a great check up with Dr. Davis.

Here are his stats for the month:

Weight: 13 lbs 7.5 oz
Length: 24.5 in
Head Circumference: 41.5 cm

Here's a look at what you've been up to this month:

-You love to have little conversations with mommy and daddy. We practice the alphabet and associating words, all the names of our family members, and silly little phrases.
-Your favorite song is still the honey bunch song. Mama loves to sing this to you in the car in the mornings.
-You had many firsts this month. Your first plane ride. Success! You were the best little baby. Everyone around us couldn't believe how happy you were (and quiet). You found your toes and haven't let go since! You had your first taste of sold food. We are trying out Earth's Best Whole Grain Oatmeal mixed with mama's milk. You love it and squeal for more when it's all gone. Your first successful bumbo time. You weren't wanting much to do with the bumbo seat, but now you are really enjoying it. You play with all your little animal babies and toys on the tray.
-We were so blessed to have Pa dedicate you while we were in Oklahoma! It was such a sweet moment for us all to share. We feel so blessed to have you and believe that by giving you back to God he will do great things with your life!
-You still aren't a fan of tummy time. We are actively working on it though!
-Teething is upon us. You're a trooper, but have had a couple of rough days. It just means extra snuggles for mama.

Here are pictures from this month:

So relieved that Daddy survived the Tough Mudder.

Food might as well be cocaine to you. Delish!

Oklahoma 4th of July

Dayton took his first big trip! He rode on an airplane and changed time zones. He did it with such ease we (and everyone around us) couldn't even believe it! A happy little traveler to say the least.

We had such a wonderful time in Oklahoma with my family! We met our sweet new nephew, Connor, and Dayton got to meet his older cousins, Graham and Claire. Of course, seeing Nana and Pa is always a highlight! We just couldn't have been happier to spend our summer holiday anywhere else.

Meeting this little peanut makes me happy!!!

Loved seeing our sweet friends, The Gundys

I love this sweet girl

See what I mean?

Nana and Dax! Yay!!!!!

Graham is so big. I can't even handle it.

My love.

Dayton and Uncle Rod

Pa and Claire Bear!
