Oh boy! Oh boy! 4 months have come... and gone! On one hand I can't believe we've only been doing this parental thing for 4 months because it feels like this has been our life forever but, on the other hand I feel like we're just getting the swing of things. I think you're probably always getting the swing of things? Always changing, always learning? Yes, I think so & I'm loving all of it!
Weight - 15.7 lbs
Height - 24.5 inches
Hair - Still have a ton of hair! It is getting lighter though & in certain lights it has a red tint to it.
Eyes - Still blue as ever! I know you're a boy but, they are some beautiful blue eyes!
Clothes - Officially wearing 6 month clothes! You are still wearing some 3 month rompers and jammies are 3-6 months!
Diapers - Right after you turned 3 months we transitioned into size 2 diapers! We've tried different variations but, it seems that Huggies Little Snugglers are still what works best for you!
Sleeping - We really can't complain, you're sleeping pretty good! You go to bed about 8pm & sleep until about 2 or 3 and wake up for a bottle. You typically go back to sleep pretty easily. Sometimes you wake up about 6 but, not really ready to wake up so it's back to sleep & up at 7:20am on. the. dot!! Naps are ok but, they are more like cat-naps for the most part. Unless you're napping with Mommy or Daddy on the couch - you sleep like an angel! And I'm proud to say you are still sleeping exclusively in your crib!!!
Eating - You are eating like a little champ as proven by your weight gain! You are now taking 5oz bottles every 3-4 hours with the exception of during the night. We started adding rice cereal to your bottle after your 4 month appt. to help with your spitting up but, we aren't having much luck with it yet. Hoping things turn around soon for all of our sake! :)
+You had a couple first this month - first zoo trip & trip to Gruene, TX for Mother's Day!
+ You talk a ton (& much louder these days!) & have begun doing little belly laughs - it's the cutest thing ever combined with your big gummy smiles!
+ This month you found your tongue & love sticking it out!
+ You have started grabbing at things & holding onto thing. Your playmat is your new favorite thing! You love to grab at each of the toys & try so hard to pull them straight to your mouth!
+Speaking of, everything goes to your mouth - your fingers & fist, toys, burp rags - everything!
+ You really enjoy sitting up! Whether it is on our laps or in your bumbo-like chair, you love being in the middle of everything & seeing it all!
+ You are also holding your head up completely on your own! You get stronger everyday!
Telling us allll about it!
+ And by the looks of it you wear a lot of blue! :) You look good in blue, what can I say!?
We love you so much Jack Montgomery! We cannot imagine life without you & are eternally grateful to be your mommy & daddy!!
