Monthly Milestones: 4 Months!

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

So I definitely do not have a newborn anymore. I have an old born! Haha! Man oh man how time is flying so quickly that my mind can barely comprehend that I have a 4 month old! Four months ago I was so eager for him to get to this point and now that he is, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic to the day he was born.

  • 14.6 lbs - 24 inches 
  • Eats every 3-4 hours,  is now 75% bottle fed and 25% breast fed. 
  • Sleeps patterns have varied, I guess its true what they say about the "4 month sleep regression" because it definitely caught you! It was nice sleeping more than 4 hours while it lasted! Lol!
  • Diaper Size: 2
  • Clothes Size: 3-6M/6M
  • Likes:
    • Staring at the ceiling fan, lights, moving things
    • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
    • Trying to grab things with your hands!
    • Laying on Dada's chest
  • Dislikes:
    • When I'm not in sight. You start freaking out when I walk away from you for even a second!
  • Milestones: 
    • Eating baby food! 
    • Holding your own baba (bottle!)
    • Drinking from a trainer sippy cup (for 4m+)
    • Sitting up with little assistance for a short period of time
    • Definitely more "talkative" now and you try to mimic what we say the best you can. Sometimes it sounds like your'e saying 'Ma-ma' or 'Hi' or 'Hello!' 
  • Firsts:
    • Hiking (day) Trip @ Belle Isle in RVa with Mama, Dada and Uncle Josh! Dada carried you on the ergo the entire hike, you fell asleep 30 minutes into the hike! 
    • Norfolk Botanical Garden Trip for the Laterns of Asia exhibit! You got a kick out of this ones because of all the lights! It was such a joy to see you so amazed and amused!
    • Zoo Visit @ the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, Dc! Of all the animals we saw, I think you enjoyed the cheetah, zebra and the elephants the most! 
    • Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, Dc! 
    • Eating actual baby food! Your very first meal (aside from breastmilk and formula) was organic oatmeal cereal, and your first veggie/fruit was butternut squash that I made for you! So far you've tried cereals, squash, and sweet potatoes! :]
  • Personality: 
    • Your character and personality is definitely coming out more now that youre more interactive. You're a very curious little guy and love to blabber as usual!
