We have a tooth!

Toby turned 4 months old on Sunday, April 29th and his first tooth popped through a few days later! Now my single greatest task each day is to teach him NOT TO BITE! (I am still nursing)

You have to look hard to find it (bottom left), but believe's there!

We had his 4 month visit today and Toby weighs 17.1 lbs (85%) and is 26 1/2 inches long (90%!) Our little man is perfectly proportioned...and not so little!

Toby and I have a daily "love session"! It's my favorite time of each day. I tell him how cute he is, how much I love him, how proud I am of him, how strong he is and I kiss him a ton...
and now he is starting to kiss back! (or so I tell myself)
I have learned that it is best to keep your mouth closed! He is drooling a TON!

you are such a great mom. i can tell not only from your pictures, but because of my time i got to spend with you when you were here. if that's any indication for what a great mom you are than toby is never going to feel unloved.

i miss you!!!

What a big boy! He obviously is going to take after his daddy. He's about the same size and weight as Kyle was at six months. Hope he learns to walk before you can't carry him anymore. I love the new pictures and how happy you all are. It was also nice to reread my own journal about my emotions and feelings as a new mom. It's such a magical bond between a mother and child. It is still just as special every day even though he is becoming a young man. Enjoy your "little" man as he won't be little very long.
