4 months old and YAY for Obama!!!

We celebrated Obama's victory and Maddox's 4 month milestone all at once! Our little guy is Mr. Patriotic - he was born on the 4th of July and he wouldn't go to sleep last night until he was sure Obama had secured his victory! He is weighing in at about 18 pounds now - it is getting harder to lug the carseat around! I am so proud of him though - he is a little cutie and a very good boy. He is "talking" more and more and has the cutest little laugh. He also loves to scratch his head and pull on his own hair (as well as mine). I am hoping to catch some of these cute things on video soon to share with you. His hair is as wild as ever as you can see below, but I really don't want to cut it! It is getting long on top and is hard to style, it just won't lay down right. He is able to push up his chest now during tummy time and has rolled over a few times. He loves to "stand" in your lap too and thinks it is so funny. He also found his feet last week - he loves to grab them and try to stick them in his mouth. They are just as good to suck on as his hands apparently. He really thinks it's funny when we stick his toes in his mouth and make a funny sound. We love trying to find new things that make him laugh - these little things are so wonderful!! I have a lot more photos I would like to share - I'll post some more soon...

Oh, how fun, Mad found his feet! Aren't babies so cute when they giggle? It's not surprising that you're trying to find more things to make him laugh! He's so big already - 18 lbs, wow. My little guy weighed in a 9lb 8oz today.

Maddox is so adorable. You will have to enter him in a photo contest. I would be very proud of him if he decided to go into politics. He is so cute he makes me cry. I can't wait to hold him. Love Mom xxoo
