My Sweet boy turned 4 months on Saturday and I know I say this every month but I really can not believe it has been four months, then on the other hand time has flown by so fast I cant believe it has ONLY been 4 months, I cant imagine life without my boy it seems as if he has been with us forever. I was looking back at his pictures last night and I just couldn't believe how much he has grown and looks so much older.
Age: 4 Months, (18 Weeks)
Weight: 16lbs (75%ile)
Length: 25 inches (75%ile)
Head: 17inches (75%ile)
Milestones: Oh man every day it seems as if he is doing something new, I just love it! He is much more interested in toys now and will purposefully grab things from your hands or off the ground etc. He likes to tear the toys off his play mat, I will reattach them and he will rip them off. He thinks everything is HILARIOUS. Especially putting a shirt on his head or cleaning out his neck rolls he cracks up and its just the sweetest sound. sucking on his thumb or first two fingers and the Dr said he is teething...joy my boobs cant wait for those razor teeth to bust through! He is sitting up better with support and today I put him on his belly on a blanket and left the room, when I came back he had moved off the blanket...I think we may have a mover on our hands very soon!!
Eating: Still breastfeeding when I'm home with him and taking bottles for daddy when I'm at work. He takes about 7oz before bed and then 5-6oz when he wakes up at night or in the AM before I get home from work, I think I am going to wait till 6 months before we start solids. Still spits up a TON, i don't believe its reflux because he doesn't have the reflux symptoms just massive spit ups...i think its karma because my mom said I spit up a lot too
Sleep: Aye Aye Aye sleep is so erratic around here, I think it may be contributed to teething or this "4 month wakeful phase" whatever it is it sucks! Some nights he will sleep all night like 830pm-530am some nights he will only wake up at like 230 and then 530 or 630 and then some nights he wakes up at 1230, 430, 630. I do the same thing every night. He gets a bath I feed him then we put him in bed with his music and white noise. Part of me loves getting up with him at night its like our sweet quiet moment that I get to cuddle his sweet sleepy self but then I also really want to sleep more than 3 or 4 hours at a time. Im hoping this too shall pass, and in the mean time, coffee is my friend.
What I'm wearing: We use disposable diapers at night and those are still size 2, most of the clothing that fits is 6 months and a few 3-6months depending on the brand. He also fits in the gerber 6-9 month sleep n plays now...he is getting too big!!!!
Likes: Still LOVES his play mat he likes to rip off the little toys I have hanging from the links and kick the side so it shakes and jungles. Likes to sit in his bebepod and play with the little toy it came with. Loves to be outside and go on runs with mommy. Getting his shirt changed, bath time
Dislikes: His car seat!! When mommy works, mommy's little green car (for some reason when we go in my car anywhere he cries the whole time, he hates it!)
