// Linden Atlas - Four Months

Our little Linden turned four months old on Sunday! So bittersweet! It's hard to see the months race by so quickly, even if the days feel so incredibly long. At this rate he'll be turning a year old before I can even wrap my head around it. I have such a hard time coming to terms with him getting older and bigger, because I want him to stay my sweet little baby forever, ya know? (All the while I can't wait for him to: sleep through the night, be able to feed himself, communicate with what's making him upset, etc haha! DREAM BIG, KB!) FOUR months! I just can't.

This month Linden:
+ weighs 13 pounds 10 ounces.
+ measures 25.5" long (holy growth spurt!)
+ decided naps and sleeping are like, so not cool. (wah!)
+ started really teething. (heaven help us all!)
+ slept in his 4moms Breeze for his first night away from home (we were still with him!)
+ moved into his sidecar crib in our room.
+ had his first ear infection. (boo!)
+ started wearing his cloth diapers.
+ experienced his first Halloween (and dressed up like a bag of popcorn!)
+ finally outgrew most of his "newborn" sized clothing (sad face!)

This next month is definitely going to hold some doozies. He'll be meeting several members of our family for the first time, and he'll be trying his first solid food! Hooray for new experiences!


  1. Ohmygoodness, he is so adorable. My first is due next month, so I love seeing other first time moms enjoying the hell out of their little ones. Love that picture of you guys baking at the top.

  2. What a sweet little face he's got! Haha, I've just turned 21 and my mum still says the same about wishing I coulda stayed a little babe. She's started to just wish a baby upon me instead, which, not yet, but it's kind of funny. She just loves babies!


  3. He is just soooooo adorable! I see so much Toby in him, it's crazy! Congratulations again :) I can't wait for the day my husband and I have children, it's been a tough 7 months of "trying" (tmi? hahah), but I know it'll happen when we're ready. Buying a house is in our plans for early 2015, so I'm not too upset lol His style is also so awesome, better than my husband's ;)

  4. Linden is just the cutest! How is it going with the cloth diapers? I don't have any babies of my own yet, but a friend of mine is considering using them for her little girl, and is still a little hesitant.

  5. I love all of the photos but that first picture is so perfect. Like, print that out and frame it!! <3 I can't imagine how sentimental sad I'll be about my baby getting bigger. I'm about to be in my 2nd trimester and I'm already like, but you were JUST a poppy seed! Haha.

  6. He has the best happy baby face I have ever seen in my life. Looks like he's telling the funniest joke ever AND laughing at the punchline himself! Good job on this cutie patootie! :)

  7. I love your blog and have been lurking around for quite some time! I rarely take time to post comments, but I just wanted to congratulate you on your adorable baby! I was reading your posts right up until... I had my own daughter on July 21st. :-) I started back to work and have been getting caught up on my computer time. He is gorgeous, and I am so happy for you guys!

  8. That boy is so much like his brother. They are going to look like nearly-twins as adults, I guarantee it. I love how grown-up Linden's little face is!

  9. Hahaha oh dear Me babies are the most adorable things ever lol and most frustrating as well!!!
    And such a happy baby, this little dear is!
    ^_^ Happy 4 Months, Linden!!!
