Little Man is 4 months old now! Well he was ten days ago, im alittle behind on this as I havent been close to a computer for a while.
Weight: at his check up he was 15lbs 8oz, He’s wearing all 3-6 month clothing and size 2 diapers when we use disposables
Height: he’s 25 1/2 inches
Eating: Formula fed- 6ozs every 3 1/2 to 4 hours, we also started cereal! He doesnt like it much, i’ve tried mizing a spoonful of some stage one baby food into it and so far have tried squash, sweet potatoes and bananas, he hasnt really shown much favor for that either, he likes to alternate the eating and then some bottle and then another bite, it does seem to help him hold over to the 4 hour mark, we keep trying it and soon he’ll get the hang of it. He does well with the actually swallowing of it, just not the open mouth insert food part lol
Sleep: He takes his last bottle around 9 then we play alittle and he gets a fresh diaper and then we go into his room where the humidifier and lullabys are on and rock to sleep around 10, he usually goes right to sleep. We stopped the swaddling and have since started letting him sleep on his tummy, which he loves cause he sleeps until 5-7am with out waking up but the tummy sleeping makes mommy nervous, I check on him all the time!
Activity: So this kid likes to move, he loves to stand on our laps doesnt mind being on the floor on his back or on his tummy, can roll from front to back and back to front. Sits in his bumbo for all cereal “meals” We just bought him a “johnny jump up” yesterday and he LOVES it. can easily sit in it for 20+ mins. He doesnt jump much in it yet but he loves to twirl around on his toes. He smiles ALL the time, and is so social, if you take him out when he’s crabby he will usually just perk right up and smile at people. He’s started grabbing at/for toys and holds them much longer and chews on his fingers all the time. He also loves to blow raspberries, gurgle and squeal.
We got one belly laugh out of him one night, but havent gotten anything like it out of him since, and believe me we’ve tried! 🙂 He’s taking a notice to the pets a little bit more, watching them move by him, its cute and I cant wait for them to get to play together (as the dog cant wait either!)
He sometimes wakes up from naps cranky so I just take him outside and he’s instantly in a better mood. Although last week he was strangely crabby and just wasnt acting like himself so I took him into the doctor (cause he was coughing and they said that was just from his extra drooling) but that he had a ear infection so he’s been on meds since thursday and takes them until saturday and over the weekend our happy baby returned. Im am so thankful he’s feeling better because those few days were rough!
He is just growing so much and changing everyday! I cant believe how much he changes every month, how fast he learns things, seriously one day I’ll say “oh he’s not grabbing toys yet” then the next day he’ll be proving me wrong! I love it! We already have almost a full photo album full of his pictures and he gets baptized next month and with easter and everything it will be full very soon! I make it a point every month to go print that months pictures and put them in a book, I do not want them stuck on a computer to end up lost of something. Seriously in another 4 months i’ll have a totally different (but still the same) baby on my hands- a mobile one!! Ahh after the grage sale next month the task of baby proofing will begin!!
