4 months


You are already 4 months...a third of a year...18 weeks! Slow down baby boy!

You had your 4 month appointment today and I was not surprised to hear you'd almost gained two pounds this month. You are tipping the scales at 17lb 3oz and you are 25.5 inches long. You've more than doubled your birth weight and grown almost 6 inches! Here you are looking chubby as always:

You got two shots at your appointment today. You only cried for a second until I picked you up and have been sleeping on me ever since. Shots make you very tired.

You are still tripodding this month. You pediatrician said it's a 6 month milestone which means you're ahead. You still won't roll though. You still aren't a huge fan of tummy time, but are starting to enjoy it for a few minutes. Here you are looking very cute:

We went to visit your Nani, Papaw, and Uncle A for a week this month. When we got there we found out Nani had a ton of new toys for you! You loved them all, but the walker and Jeep rocker were your favorites:

You are still nursing 5-8 times a day. We've decided to delay solids until 6 months so you can start eating good foods like fresh avocado and bananas. I am going to make all of your baby food when you do start solids. I will occasionally thaw some milk out and feed it to you with a spoon. You love eating like a big boy!

You are wearing size 6-9 and 6-12 month onesies and sleepers and 3-6 month pants. You are in size two diapers.

You are still sleeping in our room and have started waking up around 4:30am to eat. You also are waking up a few times throughout the night just because. We can't wait for you to start sleeping through the night again. You also will only nap on me and are getting quite heavy! You are going to bed around 7 or 8 each night which is nice because it gives mommy and daddy time to get things accomplished around the house.

No professional pictures this month, but here are some of my favorites:

We love you baby!


  1. Love it! Btw- I have that same bouncer/rocker!

    He's so handsome!

  2. Where do you get the onesies with the numbers?

  3. They are stickers you put on white onesies.

  4. ahhhhh why haven't i heard of this before?!? awesome! thanks!

  5. awww we have the same walker! check out my blog for some great pics. I'm pregali80 on the bump :)

  6. I'll miss seeing you on the bump, but honestly, I agree with you on the drama. I mostly get on just to see updates from you and Mrs. Mosley. I'll check in on Henry from time to time. Stay warm!
