"For the Lord God is a sun and shield; He bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold
from those whose walk is blameless."

4 months old...As big as a 9 month old!

Hutton turned 4 months old today!! Our precious angel is growing like a weed!! He is officially wearing 9-12 months clothing and we estimate about 17 lbs! If he gets Uncle Cary's height and his daddy's build, Little Hutton may not end up being so little! We recently were able to spend some time up in Kentucky with my family while Craig attended a wealth management forum in Cincinnati and boy did Hutton get spoiled! Nana had set up one of our old cribs, complete with bedding, toys, a changing table, etc! He had new clothes, a slew of new diapers and wipes, as well as a state of the art swing that her cousin donated to our visit! It was priceless. I have a feeling this child will never want for anything...If Nana can help it! While we were there, Hutton enjoyed many firsts: His first cereal feeding with a spoon, his first Hibachi grill dining experience, and his first UK football game! We were confident he would rollover during that trip, but it just didn't happen! We loved the quality time with my family and can't wait til our next visit over Christmas!

In my last post I noted how Hutton was sleeping through the night. Boy did that ever change! He is experiencing a ridiculous regression and mommy is exhausted from it. It began before all the travel and the travel didn't help the situation. Now that we are back at home in Memphis, he is still waking up between 4-5am for a comfort feeding. I don't know what to do!! I've tried letting him cry, but it keeps Craig up which I hate because he has to go to work. I've tried a late night feeding before I go to bed. That hasn't worked! To the old schoolers, I've tried the cereal before bed time, my mother swears by this, and that hasn't worked either! If you have any other suggestions, please let me know!

You know I love to post pictures so here are some more of the little giggler!
