4 months old!

Owen turned four months today. It's gone by so fast, and he's getting so big! It seems like such a short time since he was a tiny baby, and we were strapping him into his huge carseat for the first time to take him home from the hospital. Here are some things we love about our little boy:

-The way he curls his toes all the time. He does it so much that he picks up tons of fuzz - from his blankets, from his socks, from the carpet... It's kind of gross how much fuzz he can get in his toes in one day of wearing socks.
-His dimples! He's got five that we can count easily.
-His little chuckle.
-His new tricks - puckering up his lips (we'll try to get a picture of this soon), and chewing on his own tongue (which looks really strange).
-The way he rubs his own head while he's eating (mom - this is pretty much just like Kevin used to do).
-The way he grabs everything that's placed within reach, and shoves it in his mouth. He can get his entire fist in there.
-The way he slimes our cheeks when he's giving "kisses".
-The way he kicks and splashes in the bath - he loves bath time!
-His "phantom suck" - even when he's asleep and has no pacifier, he sucks on it.
-The way he tries to put his own pacifier in his mouth - we'll have to get a video of this soon - it's pretty funny. He turns it around and around and tries again and again, and can never quite manage.
-His big brown puppy dog eyes.

Ok, so this list could go on and on. :) We love our little boy. Here are some pictures of the last four months:
