Four Months!

Well, my baby is officially four months old. Where has the time gone?! (I'm a little late, he turned four months on September 23rd.) He had his four month appointment on the 24th, and he's still a little guy!

Height: 24.5 inches (34.53%)
Weight: 13 lbs 4 oz (14.76%)
Head Circumference: 16 in (13.41%)

Definitely growing, but a little on the small side. He is at a six month developmental level, though. His pediatrician is guessing that he'll walk between seven and nine months. Smart little guy!

Just a few things for my memory.
-He can sit up unassisted for up to 5 minutes. He can go longer if he has the boppy or even just something sturdy at his back. Then he slouches forward.

-He can give "mama kisses." Which consists of him leaning forward, mouth wide open, and sliming my face. Then he does one suck, licks my face, and pulls back.

-He is army crawling, and he'll get on his knees and scoot forward on his head until he's flat again. So a little like a worm. But it gets him where he wants to go, I guess.

-He stands if we balance him. We can put his hands on the couch and he'll stand there. (I have a picture of this one in the pictures below.)

-He loves to babble, but he's not really making consonant sounds yet. Occasionally we'll get a "da" or a "ga," but it's not consistent and it's usually only one.

-He LOVES to grab/suck on his feet.

-He still wears 0-3 month size clothes. They still fit very nicely. No change in the foreseeable future there.

-He likes to put his hand on his mouth and make farting noises.

-He is teething. And apparently, he's a zombie. He loves human flesh, and he WILL attack your hand and go to town on it.

-He likes to feel things. His favorite is the couch. And last night, it was the bedsheets. He was scratching them in his sleep. Right next to my ear. =)

-He likes to look at the tv.

-He finally loves his toys! His favorites are his bright colored rings, Bear, "hypno-toad," (A little frog that has a string you pull and it vibrates.) A super annoying musical bear that I mostly just regret buying for him, and some brightly colored soft blocks.

I think that's about it. Picture time.

Not cooperating for his comparison pictures.

Yeah, he's huge.

"Oh...hello, Bear!"

"I know. I hate pictures, too."

Playing with his friend, Soren.

First time in a high chair at a restaurant!

Jake at his first football game. (In the Legacy tent. He decided he wanted some ice cream, too.)

And again.

Yesterday was October 1st. You know what that means!


And now, a video for you to enjoy. I love how he knows what's coming!!

Wow...he sure is moving right along in those milestones. I pretty much love his dimples.

I know - he's moving so fast! I wish he'd slow down and just be my tiny baby for a bit. =(
I love them too! I hope he doesn't grow out of them. (Can they grow out of them?)
