4 Months!

Elliott turned 4 months old this Thursday! He's a really pleasant little guy and we can't believe the past 4 months have gone by so quickly.
He continues to nap well and sleep 12 hours at night, which makes me incredibly thankful. When Elliott's awake he loves to be able to see all the action around him. He watches Malachi all the time and laughs at him a lot. He's starting to play in his jumperoo and sit in his Bumbo chair more often.
Malachi likes to watch Elliott "swim" when he's on his belly. He won't prop himself up with his arms to look around much, instead he kicks his legs and moves his arms until he gets tired. He then just gives up and rests a bit before doing it all again. Smiling all the while, of course.
Elliott has rolled over a few times, although we've never actually witnessed the big milestone. We just find him in a different position when we go to get him up from naps! He doesn't like his pacifier at all. He prefers to suck the middle two fingers on his left hand or his right thumb.
Malachi continues to be a great big brother. He likes to show Elliott what he's playing with, make him laugh with funny faces and read books with him. He's also started including him in our conversations and games. He talks in his "Elliott voice" to let us know what Elliott is thinking and what he wants!

We go to the doctor on Monday for his 4 month check up so we'll find out then how our little guy is growing!
