Baby’s Weight: He weighed in at 16 lbs. at his 4 month well check. I’d venture to guess he’s around 17 lbs now.
Baby’s Height: He was 26 inches at his 4 month well check. Probably an inch or two taller? We need to start marking his height on his measuring frame we have in his nursery!
What size of clothing does baby wear?: I’ve just packed away the last of the 3-6 month. He’s in 6 months exclusively. And the Carter’s 6 months probably only have a few wks of wear left
Any milestones baby reached during the month: Early on in the month, A rolled belly to back pretty regularly. He’s still not a huge fan of tummy time, but he does roll. He’s gone to his side from his back, but not all the way back to belly. He loves standing. He’ll hold a good standing stance propped up against something for a minute or two. He is also getting better at sitting up in the tripod position.
Special outings baby had during the month: This month was pretty low key. We are waiting for the nice spring weather to come and stick around for longer than a day! Running errands and dinner at ILs are a regular thing, we spent a fun Easter Sunday over there, too. We went to Catholic church for the first time as a family.
What was baby’s routine: A wakes up for his morning nursing session at around 6am (give or take a half hour), he snuggles/sleeps in bed until 7/8am and then his 3 hour day time cycles start. His awake time has increased steadily to 2 hours. And he’s taking naps well in the pack n play! He’ll avg 1 hour naps 3x a day. Some are longer, some are shorter. On teething days, he’ll even nap for 3 hours+! :O He “eats” 5-6x a day. On my office days, he’ll take a bottle 3-4x, and we’ll nurse in the AM and before bedtime. He loves playing on all of his baby gear/toys. My mom has him on a rotation! Exersaucer, tummytime, high chair/toys/fish tank viewing, bouncer with sassy links, etc.
Did any big changes occur: A has two teeth! His two bottom teeth are poking in and we first noticed them on tax day (4.15.13). I almost had a mommy meltdown. I can’t handle how fast my baby is growing!! He’s also grown out of his swing. We transitioned him to napping in the pack n play we have set up downstairs. First of the big baby gear to be put away in the basement. I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW FAST TIME FLIES.
What are baby’s favorites: He is obsessed with standing. LOVES it. He LOVES when daddy comes home from work. He has the biggest smile and laughs greeting him. He’s also started to notice the dogs and loves petting them (when Bailey’s not trying to lick his face!)
What are your thoughts about the past month: It is so mind-boggling how quickly time flies and how much A has learned in just a month’s time. There is just so much for him to take in, he’s such a curious baby, always wanting to look out for the next new thing in his line of sight. It’s hit me really hard this month at just how these weeks are flying by. I can’t believe how much he has grown in the last few months. :*) I’m also so excited for the upcoming Spring/Summer months of activities we have to look forward to with A!
