Contrary to the look he's giving the camera in this photo, Fox actually tolerates bath time. Trust me, tolerating is a step in the positive direction compared to the way he felt about them a few months ago.
It's been a while, so here's a little update on our favorite little buddy.
This little guy just gets more and more fun each day.
He has officially developed a laugh that is just the best (It's a laugh, not a giggle -although he sometimes giggles in his sleep). Fox basically finds it hilarious when you make kissy noises, click your tongue, or make fart noises (he knows good humor, obviously). Along with the laughing, Fox is also a noise machine. He's always chatting it up (usually with himself). His favorite word is goy/goi. I don't know what it means yet, but when he says it a ton in a row whilst sucking on his pacifier, it sounds like that little trick when you hold your fist in front of your mouth and say girl over and over (it was a jr high thing?) And he is so close to making the Chewbacca noise, it isn't even funny.
Even with no real prior knowledge of the holiday, Fox is totally stoked for Christmas. He loves looking at the lights on our tree and staring at our Merry Christmas banner any chance he gets. And he loves listening as Cam and I belt out Christmas carols whenever we're in the car (he likes to pretend like he's sleeping, but really he's just soaking in the magic that is the Christmas season mixed with our amazing singing voices).
Fox had his four month checkup last week. This kid is a champ. He practically laughed in the nurse's face when she gave him four shots all at once. Ok, so that laugh may have actually been a wimper, but he was back to his happy self before we were even finished putting his clothes back on him (yes, he prefers taking his shots in the nude). And Camaron and I didn't even cry -yeah us! At the appointment, we also found out Fox's current stats. At four months, Fox measures at 25.5" tall (75%) and Fox weighs 12 lbs 4oz (10%) with a head circumference of 16.5" (30%). And although this kid is a little on the thin side, he just started wearing his 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. We have a growing boy on our hands -and it's freaking me out. The doctor also said it looked like his bottom teeth should be coming in soon -that's freaking me out even more.
