Letter to Micah

Dear Micah,

You are now 16 weeks old, that's about 3 1/2 months(usually its 4 months but because of the calendar you won't technically be 4 months old for about 2 more weeks)

You are a very active little baby boy and very talkative.  You like "standing" on anyone's lap who wants to hold you and you love any toys that allow you to "stand".  Your Nana bought you a jumperoo for Christmas and you love it, even though your feet don't don't touch the floor!!

You are a great NIGHT sleeper, but during the day you don't usually nap for more than 30 minutes at a time.  You are a very cuddly baby, unless you just want to play. Sometimes when I try to rock you to sleep, you pull your paci out of your mouth because it makes you sleepy. I love giving you your bottle at night because it makes you fall asleep and you have the sweetest look on your face.
You started smiling at Daddy when you were one month old, but Mommy didnt get that smile out until you were 2 months old.  Your Daddy also made you laugh for the first time this month, but you have not belly laughed that hard since.  Now you love smiling at people everywhere when they smile at you, but sometimes a funny look might scare you and you stick out your bottom lip and start to cry. 

This month you started drooling on everything and everyone and today your Daddy and I realized that your first tooth is growing!   

Everyone tells me that you like exactly like your Daddy, and you do.  But at Christmas, Aunt Heather pulled out one of mommy's old baby pictures, and your face looks like mine a little too!!

Your Daddy and I are so thankful that God chose us to be your parents and we are so excited about what God has in your future!
