Thomas - Four Months

Hey there, handsome.  Guess what?  You're four months old already!  Amazing, huh?  Lots of big stuff around the corner for you, buddy.  Pretty soon you'll be rolling over, sticking things in your mouth, and learning to sit up more and more on your own.  Before I know it, you'll be wanting to eat solid foods and you won't want to stay put when I set you somewhere.  Oh, but you're ever so cute, so I think I'll let that go.  Here's what you're up to at 4 months old.

  • Weight is 15 lbs, 9 oz (70%) and height is 25.25 inches (70%).  You certainly aren't the beast your brother Micah was, but you're a healthy boy!
  • You've started sticking your tongue out when you smile real big.  It's incredibly adorable.
  • You snort sometimes when you get a good giggle going.
  • Most of the time, you go to bed for the night between 8:30 and 9:00 or so.  You will wake up somewhere in the 5:00 or 6:00 am hour and nurse, but then you go back to sleep for another couple hours.
  • Yes, we are still nursing.  I'm amazed at this.  Never before have I nursed this long and it is so amazing.  You do get a couple bottles of formula/breastmilk combo every day, but you're great at both!
  • I think you're going to have hazel eyes.
  • On January 7th, you rolled over from your belly to your back for the first time.  Knock it off.
  • Still such a sweet boy.  You like to lie on your back for a while to watch all the activity, but you lose patience with it quickly and want to be picked up and held up so you can have a better view. 
  • Your cheeks are incredibly kissable.  They always look pink because I just can't help myself.

Love you, kiddo.  Just please slow down a little bit, ok?
