Derek is four and a half months old and growing rapidly. Most people think he is much older when they first see him because he is quite long! He has improved in his fine and gross motor skills. He can roll over with ease and is wanting desperately to crawl! He can grab an objet he desires and places his own pacifier in his mouth. Derek is working on some teeth! Drooling is constant as well as placing his fingers in his mouth to chew on. His favorite object to chew is a refrigerated spatula. Dogs and cats are fun objects to touch and observe! We continue to take a drive every day through Pt. Defiance, which gives mama a break! We enjoy walks in the Bjorn daily, which helps to keep us in shape. I've never walked so much in my life! We think Derek is the coolest kid around. We hope you enjoy the photos!

What a gorgeous picture. Or shouldn't I say that about a boy. I love the coloring. Love all three of you - a lot and miss you hope to see this summer, maybe in August. Oh no - it's hot up there in August, isn't it. Oh well.

Love you three,
Mom R

He is adorable! What a great picture of Derek. I would love to have another little one, especially when I see your baby pictures. However, Robert would love to get a good night sleep sometime soon. We used to go for drives when Reece wouldn't sleep and we thought we could write a great book/map of Torrance for putting babies to sleep. We knew all the streets to take with the fewest stop lights. Isn't parenting full of adventure.

I love it,
Lots of love,
Crista and family
