4 Months Old

I can't believe you are 4 months old already my sweet boy! I know I say that every month, but truly, time flies by WAY too fast! You are soo much fun! I am absolutely in love with you right now!

Here are some things I want to remember about this age...
- You LOVE your time with mommy AND daddy
- You love your time with us so much on the weekends that your entire schedule goes out the window and you just want to stay awake all weekend (you still sleep through the night though, thank goodness!)
- You're smiling much more often and not just because you have gas, but becuase something or someone makes you happy!
- We've got you on a schedule that you have set (is that any indication on how steady of a schedule that is?) It's not horrible, you're eating every 4 hours on cue, and you are consistently going to bed between 8-9pm and not waking up again until at least 7am!
- You are taking rice cereal in a bottle, your last bottle of the day, which helps you sleep better and longer because your tummy is more full!
- You do FABULOUS when we go shopping together! I truly am amazed at how well you do!
- You LOVE your new sling (and so does mommy!!)
- Your laugh is contagious, kind of like yawning!
- You are grabbing for your toys, and your bottle
- You like the music tat plays on your playmat and you think it's funny when you hit the rattle hanging above you!
- You are wearing 6-9 month clothes and are loving your cloth diapers!

Your 4 month stats:
Weight: 18 lbs. 4 oz. (95%)
Height: 24 1/4 in. (95%)
Head: 16 (95%)

You do have a small flat spot on your head, but Dr. Crow doesn't seem to bee too worried. We'll just have to have more tummy time!


Here are some pics of you at 4 months old!

I'm innocent, Mom, I promise!

The lengths this sweet boy will go to see what's on TV!

Sleeping in your sling, on mommy, I LOVE IT!!

At Cade's 3rd Birthday Party. You didn't know what to think of the playground, but give it two years and you will LOVE it!

Your very blunt thoughts of the Bumbo!

So sweet and curious!

"I'm just chillin' mom!"

"Really, Mom! Do you HAVE to keep taking so many pictures of me?!?"

Sitting up (with a litte help!) on the couch with mom!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

SO fun. It was great to see him yesterday.
For fun I went and looked at what Jacob's stats were at 4 months, 15.1 lbs, and 26 in. Jacob was long and lean but still solid. Boys are so much fun.
It's so fun.
