Hello Nixon | 4 Months!

Nixon_4Month_Shots

Nixie my boy, you are large and in charge.  There is nothing subtle about you, everything you do is magnificently exaggerated and full of sass.  I am so glad you are not a girl as I fear I would have met my match.  You have quickly skipped over cooing and babbling and now spend your days yelling at us and shrieking like a feral cat.  You are quite simply the loudest baby I have ever met.  Not that you cry at all.  Sadness is not an emotion you currently seem familiar with, if you are tired, hungry or bothered you don’t wimp and cry, you roar with anger.  Only one lonely tear has ever rolled down your cheeks.  Just one.  No time to cry as you are too busy practicing what sounds like new baby cuss words and perfecting pulling everyones hair.  This morning your daddy tried to put you down for a sleep and you told him {what sounded like} NONONONO until he thought better of making you angry and waited until I got back from walking the dogs.  You have trained your father well.

You are;

reaching out and grasping toys with both hands, spinning them around to try and find the right angle to get them in your mouth

frustrating yourself because though you still want to soothe yourself with your dummy you are constantly taking it out and inspecting it

eating rice cereal and pears once a day and loving it

charging your Jolly Jumper like it’s an Olympic event

splashing like Shamu and flooding the bath every time we put you in it

making your mama so deliriously happy it’s almost embarrassing.

I love you so much little hippo x

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. That first photo cracks me up! It's almost although he's just told a joke and he's nudging the lion boy doll to make sure he got it – such a cutie! Love the background/quilt too – wonderful colours!

  2. OMG – I just laughed and laughed at this… he sounds like he is a ball of energy and fun already; and could out-do my 18 month old!

    Love the little chubby tummy!
