Happy 4 Months, Baby Boy!

My baby is 4 months old... WOW. 
I cannot believe I am typing my 9 pound 7 ounce baby boy's 4 MONTH post!




 (SO EXCITING!)

Stats:
On 12/15/12 he weighed 18 pounds and 5 ounces!  
I weighing him  today and he weighed:

All of that jumping in his bouncer made him shed a few ounces!
(I do not know what is up with sucking in his lips... still pretty darn cute though;) 
*Going to 4 month check up soon, so I will know his length then!*

Milestones:

-Someone's personality has definitely blossomed! Last month, you smiled at people who were familiar to you but now you smile at everyone! That sweet smile will NEVER get old!
-Giggling all the time. Daddy can REALLY make him laugh out loud!
-Grabbing, playing, and really concentrating while playing with toys.
-Holds head up really well now! The bobbling is almost totally gone :(
-Stands up on our laps and bends knees up and down really fast!
-Bounces in bouncy seat!
-Lays back and pulls himself up.
-"TALKING" all the time! I have to leave church every Sunday because he is "talking" so loudly. Definitely found his voice!


Firsts:
-Smile at Mickey;) Every time he pops on the screen, he gets so excited!
 (Mickey had just popped on the screen! I told your aunts he LOVES Mickey, WELLLL baby get what he wants;)
 
-Breakfast with Santa

-Visit to sit in Santa's lap!


-Christmas parties!

-Received first Christmas gifts!
 
-First Visit from "The Man in RED!"

 
-Got his FIRST Football he can actually hold!

-Got  footprints at Painted By U and  clay foot/hand prints!





Loves:

 -Mickey Mouse! 
 (This is the trance you will fins him in while Mickey in on!)
 
-HANDS! Sucking them ALL the time!
 (I spy somebody sucking their thumb like their mommy did!;)
 
-Grabbing feet...
 
-Riding in the car.... thank goodness!
-Still loving bath time!
-Bouncy seat/bumbo seat

-Burp Cloth over his head while sleeping. I know this sounds dangerous, but he will fall right to sleep if we put a burp cloth over his head. This is while we're holding/watching him closely;)

-Laying in his Birthday suit while Daddy has a fire going! He kicks and babbles so loud!

Other Updates:

Little Man is still eating 4 ounces every 3-4 hours. Sometimes he gets a 2 ounce snack. Still breastfeeding! I pump 3/4 times a day to keep our stock flowing! He also gets 6-8 ounces before bedtime w/ oatmeal! We plan to start oatmeal this month with a spoon.Still wearing a size 3 diaper. He still gets swaddled at night and sleep about 7 hours straight. The only problem is most nights he is asleep by 7, so that means there is a middle of the night feeding. Not too bad... I give him 4 ounces and he goes right back to sleep until about 7:00. We had a couple of nights this month, where he woke up 4 & five times! I'm thinking it's the early stages of teething...ahhh! Wearing 6 to 9 month clothes but your toes are scrunched up in most of your 6 months sleepers. You let us know REAL QUICK when you are not liking something... by pushing with your legs, arching that back and giving a good squeal! Gage is a happy baby most of the time. It's a little harder to "please" him in the evenings because he fights his naps. But still mommy's sweetheart...

  5. Gage is too cute!! Cooper went through a few sleep issues at that phase and my doctor said it is a normal sleep regression as they go through a lot developmentally. I don't think it lasted long.
