4 Months

Eli was four months old yesterday! We went to the doctor and found out that he weighs 9 pounds, 8 ounces, which means that he is gaining more than an ounce a day! This sounds so silly to anyone with a "normal" baby, but for a preemie baby this is HUGE. He's had such a hard time gaining weight, so this is such a good thing for him.

He's as sweet and interactive as ever, talking up a storm to whoever will pay attention to him. I am so proud to be his mom. Here are a few things that I love about him...
-The way he sleeps with his arms above his head, like he's surrendering.
-His constant noisiness! Even when he's asleep he's making some sort of cute noise.
-How he loves his daddy.
-How interactive, attentive, and curious he is.

I could go on and on. :) What a JOY it is to be a mom. Getting pregnant with Eli was the biggest surprise of my life, but it has been the biggest blessing for sure. There is nothing better!
