4 Months!

Knox arrived 4 months ago today! I know I keep saying this, but seriously, time is flying by incredibly fast. Even though so much has happened, so much has changed, I swear it was yesterday that he was born. But let me tell you - this kid is totally different from that first day. Still as sweet as ever, but just ever-changing.

Remember what he looked like on day one?

And then at one week?

Now look at him - he's a chunk!!!

Now, I realize if you don't have kids, you're going to think I'm a total nut-job for being as excited about this as I am...but last Saturday, Knox learned a new trick. I thought it was an accident at first; but he keeps doing it - over and over and over again. He is officially rolling over, and it is his new favorite mode of transportation. He will start on his back in the center of the room, then roll from his back to his belly to his back to his belly, over and over again, until he gets to where he wants to be. It is quite comical. I caught it on video last weekend (below); but over the course of the week, he has been perfecting his little game.

He also started playing in his little exersaucer thing - it's like a whole new world of toys! He LOVES it. In fact, he literally spent a full hour in it by himself earlier this morning. This is going to become my life-saver as school heats up!

It truly is incredible how much he has changed, and it kinda makes me sad to think about how quickly he is growing up. I mean, seriously! It's only been 4 months - I'm probably being slightly over-dramatic. But I wish I could just freeze time, or at least slow it down a little, just so I can cherish every single one of these little moments with him. Before I know it, he's going to be driving off with some girlfriend who I won't approve of...honestly, I need to chill ;)

Knox truly is a precious, sweet little guy. From what I can tell so far, he is going to be incredibly chill and flexible. He won't want to inconvenience anybody...kinda reminds me of my mom! And that will not be a bad thing at all! He really is just a perfect little blessing.

  1. I LOVE THE VIDEO! that is hilarious and so precious. happy 4-month birthday Knox!

  2. And he has two fantastic parents! When you said he was "chill and flexible" it reminded me of his Uncle Pud. So Knox gets it from both sides of his family. One complaint....the video is too short! I just want to pick him up and give him big cuddly-huggy-kisses cause he's that kind of guy!
