4 Months Old
Height: 26.5 inches (91%)
Weight: 15 lb 4 oz (42%) Still long & lean!
Head: 42 cm (55%)
Clothes: This little boy is all over the map. 6-9 month jammies, 3-6 month onesies, 6-12 pants & coats. He is a tough guy to shop for! I've also started putting some shoes on him when we go out. Completely unnecessary, but they are so darn cute and keep his toes just a wee bit warmer!
Eating: Still loving Mama's milk! I am no hurry to start Liam on solids. Our pediatrician told us that we can introduce a few things once he's sitting up completely on his own, so we will wait til then. However, I am having a little bit of a hard time eating enough calories to keep up with breastfeeding (sounds like a terrible problem, I know) so let the holiday feasting begin!
Sleeping: Liam just so happens to be an amazing sleeper! He now regularly sleeps for 9-12 hours straight! He must know how much I enjoy my sleep! My only complaint is that he has to be nursed to sleep; there is no putting him in his crib until he is completely knocked out and even then it takes a little finesse. His bed time is between 10 and 10:30 and I would like to make that a little earlier too. Regardless of what time I attempt to put him to sleep, this is when it actually happens.
Diapering: Loving all his cloth diapers! I have been working on a post about this, but Liam is a busy boy and hardly leaves me anytime to blog these days!
Trips: We visited friends in Delaware this month! Here's the post if you missed it! We also went to Spokane for Thanksgiving. I plan on blogging about this separately so it gets the attention it deserves! I do love the holidays, and even more so this year as I get to start new traditions with Liam.
Playtime: Playtime is "all the time" now! My little Liam is so busy, wanting to play with anything & everything. Right now, any object is a toy in his mind! I'm trying to help him with certain skills, so we have lots of tummy time and are practicing his rolling over. He is getting so close....I think it could be any day now!
Likes: Touching people's faces (this is so adorable...also kinda gross if he's just been slobbering all over his hands.) Watching our cat Charlie (and all other animals.) Getting dressed (his favorite part is when I pull a shirt over his head!) Anything that crinkles: paper, toys, wrappers, etc. Being scared (boo!) or startled...but there is a fine line between fun and actually being scared so we don't get him too excited!
Milestones: He had his 1st cold which was no fun at all! He absolutely hates the nose sucker and throws a little tantrum the moment he sees it coming at him! He has also discovered his feet, but can't quite grab them yet! He loves when I put pants on him that have animal faces or something over his feet. Like I said above, we're still waiting for him to roll over...he is trying so hard and sometimes gets very frustrated with himself. He of course had his 1st Thanksgiving...blog to come when I find the time!
Best Moment: This had to be Thanksgiving! The holidays take on a whole new meeting now that we are a family. Liam brings a whole new joy to absolutely everything.
