four months

  • you weigh 15.2 lbs.
  • you are 25 inches long.
  • you wear size 3-6 month clothes. 6-12 month onesies.
  • you are in a size 1 shoe.
  • you are in a size 2 diaper.
  • you are such a happy boy!  i can't believe how much you smile and laugh.
  • you went to the church nursery for the first time on the sunday right after you turned 3 months.  you do great in there!
  • you still pretty much exclusively nurse.  when you do have to have a bottle, it's always breastmilk.  we have tried to give you formula a couple of times just to see what you would do, and you cry and won't drink it.
  • you wake up around 7am, and go to bed around 8:30-9pm.  your naps are getting more and more spaced out, but you still take more than 2 a day.  i think you probably take 3.
  • you still only sleep good at night if you are swaddled.  you've gone up to the biggest size in the swaddle blankets, too.
  • you want to sit up so bad, but you still don't have full head control.  at least enough to leave you in the bumbo seat.
  • you are much more wiggly and squirmy during diaper changes.
  • you like to hold your ankie to go to sleep in your carseat, or at nap time during the day.
  • you think austin is hilarious. :)
  • you have a small interest in toys, but it's mainly the colorful links.
  • you have gone back to nursing several times during the night.  i feel like a zombie most mornings. :)
  • you have almost outgrown your swing and bouncy seat.  i think by next month, it will be put away.  :(
  • your hair is finally starting to look like it's growing!
