4 months

Harvey at 4 Months:
  • weight: 19 lbs. 10 oz
  • has been wearing size 6-12 month clothes since he was about 3 1/2 months old
  • cooing all the time. loves to have long "conversations" with me after he eats and it's my FAVORITE time with him. he gazes up into my eyes like i'm the most wonderful thing on earth and just sighs over and over again. i melt.
  • loves to gnaw on his fists & fingers
  • easiest way to get him to laugh: stand him up and bounce him on my lap and say "Har-Vee-Jay!" as he bounces (Wendy likes to "help me" do this and changes the words to "CHUB-EE-JAY!" Harvey's laughs turn into nervous smiles, but he still loves it).
  • loves the mirror... will smile big and coo to himself then gets embarassed and burrows his face into my shoulder, he totally flirts with himself
  • SO laid back. I feel like it's because I neglect him (compared to Wendy who NEVER got put down as a newborn, he spends some time in his swing & bouncy chair so I can take care of both of them). It's like he's learned not to expect much. But then again, I really think it could be his personality.

His eyes are amazing! I LOVE these pictures! And how can Wendy even attempt to pick him up and bounce him. The thought makes me laugh and scares me at the same time.

His eyes are SO blue! What a handsome, big boy! I can't believe he is already almost 20 pounds! No wonder you set him down during the day. :) Talia is 9 months and not quiet 16 pounds. Love his chubs though. So kissable.
