4 Months


Buddy, you are FOUR months today. I know I say this every month, but how are you already four months old?!

You have changed so much over the past month. We are learning more & more about your personality. I love how interactive you are becoming! 

About the past month:

Sleep! You are so all over the place with it. Some nights, you sleep GREAT! Others, not to much. Most nights, you still go to sleep around 9 or so, up for a bottle at 10, then sleep until 3-6, up for a bottle, then back to sleep until 7 or so. These nights are fabulous! You have even had a few 10pm-6:30am nights. We love those nights! On other nights, you are so restless that you wake your self up. You just can't get comfortable enough to get in a deep sleep. On those nights, you are up at least 2 times, if not more. We play the "paci game" a lot to see if that might help calm you enough to get in that deep sleep. Last night, you were up so much between the paci game & getting up twice for a bottle that momma is tired today! Overall though, you are still a decent sleeper so we can't complain too much (plus, it's not every 2 hours). You do still sleep in your cradle (I know!), but we're slowly transitioning you to your crib. 

Mommy & Daddy made the decision that momma is going to go to part time at work. She is so excited & can't wait to be home with you more!

You grab at anything that is in your sight, including mommy's hair, toys, & even Juno! Most of the time, if you can get something in your hands, it goes straight to your mouth. The drool is still a crazy amount & you love to chew on anything that you can. We believe you are starting to teeth. Your bottom gums are a little swollen & warm to touch. Hopefully, it won't bother you too much. 

You have officially moved to the big boy bath in the bathtub & you adore it! You kick & smile the entire time. Nine times out of ten, you pee during your baths. ha! Silly boy! 

Tummy time is starting to get better! You will tolerate it much more with each passing day & love to look around & take everything in during it. You did roll over from belly to back the other day in momma & daddy's bed, but I'm thinking it was a fluke because you haven't done it since. Soon enough! 

Speaking of accomplishments, you laughed for momma today! It was the sweetest sound mommy's ever heard! You did it multiple times when she "tossed" you in the air. We can't wait for daddy to hear it! 

You are in 3-6 month clothing & quickly outgrowing some of those even. I have a feeling you won't be in this size much longer. You are in between a size 2 & 3 diaper. We just started size 3 diapers yesterday, but are trying to use up the last of the extra size 2's we have. You are taking 5 ounces of formula every 3 hours during the day with your longer stretches at night.

4 Month Stats:
Height: 26.5 inches || 94%
Weight: 18 pounds, 2 ounces || 95%
Head circumference: 45 centimeters || 98%

We love you so, so, so much little man. I can't wait to see what the next month brings!
