Oliver: 4 months

Our baby boy is 4 months today! To say that time is flying is an understatement, I can't believe how fast everything is having this time around!
Oliver is such a HIGH MAINTENANCE baby.. as cute and adorable as he is, he is also extremely demanding and exhausting!
At 4 months he STILL doesn't sleep longer than 4 hours at at time and wants to eat every 2 hours during the day. He cries inconsolably when he's not being held and I always joke around and say that he has 3 modes: Sleeping, Crying and Eating.  I never imagined having such a needy baby, let alone succumbing to his every need and whimper; there are nights I wish God had given me a different baby and then I feel awful for feeling that way and I just keep on loving the one I got, which is perfect in every way...even when he drives me insane!
Oliver currently weights 16lbs 13oz and is 26 1/4 in long.. he grew over 3 inches in less than 2 months and the doctor was very impressed about this...what can I say, we make them big! LOL!
When Oliver isn't crying, he is such a pleasant baby...he smiles ALL THE TIME (even when he cries..LOL!) and LOVES attention and company.  He already started to grab stuff and shake toys and can roll from back to tummy and tummy to back...he's quite the active little guy. 
We are still exclusively breastfeeding and going strong..this little guy loves the boob so much and I am in absolute awe about the bonding we have, so unique and wonderful.  I almost feel guilty for not having breastfed my 2 girls exclusively, but that's in the past and all I can do is enjoy this last chance I got!
I won't lie... I'm really hoping Oliver starts some sort of pattern/schedule because I live in zombie mode most times and I know I can't keep this up much longer! 
I won't introduce solids yet so food isn't going to help for a while; we'll just have to wait and see what this little guy has in store for us!
Here's a couple of pics! Happy 4 months, baby boy! :)
