4 Months Old!

Hey ladies...

Age: 4 months old!

Birthday: July 31, 2013

Weight: His 4 month appointment was a little late due to weather- but we finally made it on December 9th.  So he was about 4 months and 1 week.  He weighed 14.6#!  Growing boy!  He continues to be in the 50% for weight, and 75% for height.  

Length: 25 3/4 inches long

Sleep:  Truman is sleeping great.  He is now sleeping through the night.  He occasionally wakes up in the middle of the night but usually just wants his paci.  He's right back to sleep after we give it to him.  We are still swaddling him.  Not sure when we will stop doing that.  He seems to enjoy it and falls asleep so easily after his bottle.  He barely sleeps at all during the day if he's at daycare.  There's always so much going on there that I think he has a hard time settling down.  Most of the time it's a couple 10 or 15 minute naps.  When we are home on the weekends he usually takes a couple 45 minute- 1 hour naps in the morning as well as afternoons.  

My Bedtime: Bedtime routine is the same.  We start bath usually around 8:30-8:45 depending on how tired he is.  He's usually fast asleep by 9:15, 9:30 at the latest.

Favorite Toy: Seems to be more interested in his activity mat and a few small rattles.  He loves a little ball that is small and he can grasp with his tiny fingers.  He also loves his sock monkey :)

Clothes Size: 3-6.  Venturing into some 6 months.  They all very depending on the brand!

Diaper Size: Size 2 in Pampers Swaddlers.

Milestones Reached: Trying hard to roll over!!  We had our first stomach virus :(  Ugh!!  No fun!  Truman got sick first.  A vomiting baby is a scary and very messy thing.  Then he graciously gave it to me, and I gave it to Chris.  We were all pretty pitiful the first weekend of December. After lots of Pedialyte, Gatorade, and chicken soup, we were all feeling better in a couple of days. 

Firsts: He laughed for the first time on November 1st!  He was laying on a blanket in the living room and I was sitting beside him playing and whatever was happening cracked him up :)  Seriously the sweetest sound ever to hear a baby laugh!  Since then we can't get enough and are always trying to get a giggle out of him!

Best Mood: Truman is a great baby and really seems to be in a good mood almost all the time.  He's started being very happy in the mornings!  Love listening to him talk and coo when he first wakes up.  Usually does that for about 10 minutes before I get him up.  So sweet :)  It's amazing watching him grow and really come into his own personality.  He's changing everyday and I am so happy to be his Mama.
