Micah is 4 months old today. We’re absolutely thrilled that we’ve made it this far without too much difficulty (although it was no walk in the park either). I couldn’t think of anything special to write about, so I decided to just snap a bunch of photos to commemorate his first four months of life.

Here’s Micah having his his late afternoon nap…

We’ve been having some difficulty getting him to nap in the afternoons, so it was really nice to have him sleep on his own today for a good few hours. After he got up, I sat Micah down in his high chair at which point he promptly stuck his fingers in his mouth.



Since I was hungry, I decided to have a bowl of cereal before attempting to do anything else. Micah always gives me this look when I’m eating, as if the whole idea of putting food into your mouth was somehow incredibly fascinating.

Not long after, he started to get fidgety…



…so we went out for a walk out to the lakefront since the weather was good. When we got home I put him on the couch for a while (because he’s heavy and my arms were tired) and since Micah looked like he was in a fairly good mood, I went and took some more photos.

It’s hard to imagine how quickly four months have gone by. Although it’s been tiring, maybe even exhausting at times, Micah has proven to be a source of much joy in our lives. We’re looking forward with great anticipation to the coming months and years. Happy four month birthday Micah!
