Four Months

Four Month Stats:
Weight: 11 lbs 9 oz (3% or 27% adjusted)
Length: 24 in (18% or 69% adjusted)
Head Circumference: 16.02 in. (14% or 50% adjusted)

Clothes: You are in 0-3 month and 3 month clothes and are wearing size 1 diapers. I had the hardest time packing away your sweet newborn clothes but it is always fun to pull our new outfits that I remember Christian wearing too.

Eating: You of course are still breastfeeding, though you now eat every 2-3 hours during the day depending on your naps. For you, sweet boy, I am still off of dairy, soy and eggs.

Playtime/Activities: You love your activity mat and anytime you can watch your brother. This past month you have joined us on playmates, gone to church (though most of the services we are up in the nursing room!) and decided you hate grocery shopping. (Thank you Amazon Fresh!) We had to take you to Urgent Care this month after you refused to eat for 12 hours are had a 101 fever. Thankfully it was a quick virus!

Sleep: These past few weeks we have really be working on your daytime sleep, which has helped your nighttime sleep too. After being awake for an hour, you are ready to start getting easy to go back to sleep and love being swaddle. I call it your miracle blanket and know if you are fussy, it will immediately calm you down. You take about 4 naps a day, each one anywhere from 30-90 mins. Your best nap is in the morning. You usually wake up 2 times in the night and are up for the day around 9. With your reflux we will have to hold you up for about 30 mins after you eat.

Development: You have come alive! You are always smiling and babbling and have the biggest best dimple. Just in the past week you have started to giggle, although it is not a full blown laugh yet. You can hold up your head pretty well while being held but refuse to lift it up while doing tummy time. You are starting to reach for toys and have accidentally rolled over from your back to tummy a few times.
