Preston is already 4 months old! He now weighs 16 pounds and is 26 inches long. These past couple of months have gone by so fast and our little baby boy is growing so fast. Alot has happened in the past couple of months. Preston had his first visit from his Aunt Niki while Brian was out of town for work. I was still on maternity leave so the three of us enjoyed lots of shopping and some great lunches. The next week or two after my sister came to visit we had some really great weather. We went on lots of walks and Preston got to go on the swings in the park by us for the first time. One of the nice weekends we had some visitors. Matt, Melissa and their little girl Paige came to visit and meet Preston. We had great weather so we went to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Preston’s first visit to the zoo and he missed it all because he slept the whole time. After the zoo we had some lunch in the park. Such a beautiful day.
At the end of April, my mom came to visit and help us get ready for my return back to work. I started back to work on March 27th and Preston started in daycare. He was three months when he started. It was so hard to leave him and I admit I called and checked on him many times those first few days but we both survived our first week. He is doing great in daycare now and loves seeing all of his friends everyday. I do enjoy being back at work but I definitely cannot wait for five o’clock to roll around everyday. He is the joy in our life and everything is so much better when we get to pick him up and see his smiling face!
During April there were many firsts. Preston had his first cold which not only left him tired and cranky but us as well. He couldn’t sleep through the night like he had been for the last month and he was so stuffed up. Unfortunately, I had to stay home with him for two days. Then the following day we took our first road trip with him and headed to Cleveland to see my family. Preston got to meet his three cousins for the first time. Kenny, Tyler and Brady loved him and wanted to hold him over and over. Brian and I then headed to Virginia Beach and left Preston and Lucy with Gag and Papa. Our first time away from him! We went to Virginia Beach for one of my best friends wedding. It was a small intimate wedding on the beach. It was so nice to see everyone and so nice to sleep in for a couple of days!. We had a great time and we couldn’t be happier for Danielle and Louie! Congratulations! We then went back to Cleveland to pick up Preston and Lucy and they both had a great time visiting with family. While in Cleveland we got to spend some time with my other friend, Jess and her lil girl Cristina. Cristina is 7 months old and such a cutie.
The last week of April he started talking a lot more and tells us many stories. He especially likes to tell us stories while we are changing him into his new outfit for the day!
A few of the lil things that we love about Preston at this age are his lil sneezes, big smiles, and when he rubs his eyes when he is tired. He couldn’t be any cuter. We love him so much!
