Ralphie is 4 months old!

Dear Ralphie,

On Sunday you turned four months old. I can't believe how much you've grown this past month! You are growing and changing before our eyes!

I spent a good part of the day reminiscing about your birth. It seems like just yesterday, and then at the same time I can hardly remember how it was without you. You fit into our lives perfectly.

You go with us everywhere, and you usually do pretty well! In the last month you've gone to a wedding rehearsal, reception, three different airports, and to the Ritz Carlton in Charlotte!

You are rosy-cheeked and happy, most of the time. When you smile, you smile with your whole face.

The most often heard compliment we get from others about you is how content, and good-natured you are. You are a blessing, sweet boy. 

This month you have been busy finding your voice, and chewing those fists. Teeth coming soon? Maybe... we've ordered you some amber beads just in case.

Boy, are you chubby! I could eat you to pieces, you are so yummy. 

You like to stand on your toes when we hold you, kick your legs when you are on your back, and look all around when you are on your tummy.

You giggled for the first time this month. I thought I was going to cry. I was the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. You're very selective about your giggle time, though. You won't just do it at any given moment for any given person. No, sir-ee.

Your eyes. O, Ralphie, Daddy and I love your eyes. We could stare into them all day long. They dance.

Every night I pray that the Lord woud watch over you and protect you. And every night I pray that you would know Jesus as your savior.

My precious boy, I love you. I didn't know it was possible, but I love you even more than last month.
