Z at 4 months

I can't believe Zaden turned 4 months old last Saturday! Time is flying by. He isn't showing any interest in food yet so we are not going to add solids to his diet until the doctor says otherwise. This past Saturday afternoon we headed to the instacare because he was showing signs of a possible ear infection, turns out all he has is a small cold. He weighed a whopping 15 lbs 4 oz (with his onesie and a clean diaper on) but surely over 15 lbs!

Zaden loves sucking on anything he can get his little hands on. Some of his favorites include his hands, my fingers, Hickory & Sock Monkey, and hair (but I never let him put it in his mouth). He loves pulling on mama's and aunt ti's hair! Zaden has been drooling like crazy, we haven't seen any teeth pop out but I wouldn't be surprised if we see one anytime in the next few weeks.

Zaden is a mama's boy and will only sleep and nap while being nursed if we are at home. He will nap in his car seat if we are out and about but that's about it. Being a mama is a lot of work and can be a bit frustrating at times but at the end of the day when I see this sweet little guy sleeping in between Daryl and I, I know the hard times are worth it.
