4 Months!


Sweet little man in 4 months old! 

How the heck did that happen? 
Part of me can't believe it's only been 4 months. It feels like so long ago that we were at the hospital welcoming our sweet boy! Another part of me feels like time is flying by and every time I blink he looks more grown up. 

Here are a few stats from his appointment today:
Weight: 20 lbs 2 oz (100th percentile)
Height: 2' 2.5" (94th percentile)
Head Circumference: 17.01" (89th percentile)

-Wearing 9 month clothes but is slowly and steadily moving into his 12 month clothing. The boy needs to slow down or he won't have any clothes left to wear!

-Wearing size 3 diapers. I went a little diaper crazy when amazon was having a AWESOME diaper sale, so even though he could probably easily go up to a size 4 I am squeezing him into the remaining size 3's

-Hunter got his first little cold from Claire this month. He actually handled it like a champ, so other than a bit of a stuffy nose it wasn't a big deal.

-We're about 40% nursing 60% formula. Since my milk supply is so low we usually end up being able to just nurse the 1st session, but have to supplement after nursing the next feeding. When he takes a bottle he drinks about 4 oz. 

-Sleeping has been going much better! He's pretty consistently waking up only once a night, around 3:00 am, but we are starting to get more nights that he is sleeping all the way through till 6:00am! He takes a bath with Claire at 6:30 and is usually in bed for the night by 8:00 pm.
Naps are also getting better, and Hunter is doing a lot better being able to put himself to sleep without any crying! 

-We officially have a roller! He's been rolling from tummy to back since he was a month old but he's now mastered the back to tummy. Little stinker can now roll himself around the room and get off his play mat. He's still a little slow on the roll but I just know any day now he's going to pick up speed and be rolling all over the house!

-The boy is now a giggle machine....but only for grandma apparently. Every time we see my mom he laughs and laughs, and then I try for days and get nothing! Don't get my wrong, I'm still getting lots of smiles but the kid is making me work hard to try and get a laugh out of him.

-He is loving himself in the mirror this month! Set him in front of it and he's all smiles :)

There you have it; a healthy little 4 month old! The doctor gave us the okay to start rice cereal and some purees if he seems interested since he's such a hungry little guy and the thickness may help with his reflux as well. I'm sure this next month will bring lots of adventures!
