Whit @ 4 months:
14 lbs. 3 oz (44%)
25.75 in (90%)
-Has rolled over 4 or 5 times, but only around Ben so I don't believe it's actually happened ;)
-Tries to laugh but doesn't quite have the sound yet- he sort of stops breathing then squeals really loudly as he smiles and his body shakes. It's pretty cute, but I'm eager to hear a full-blown laugh!
-Jabbers to us all the time! His coos have changed, and are now more high-pitched squeals than soft gurgles. We think it's hilarious and end up laughing, which startles him into not cooing anymore :(
-Has experienced a sleep regression this month. I think it's a combination of lots of things; he is strong enough to break his arms out of a swaddle thanks to his uncontrollable Moro Reflexes but can't sleep if he has too much freedom, and his sleep patterns are becoming more adult and he is still learning how to sooth himself back to sleep during a light sleep phase. These two things combined have been sending me into his room once or twice a night to re-swaddle and calm him back into sleep :( I think they are both temporary, though, so his reflexes should calm down and he'll learn to self-soothe soon. Hopefully.
-Still has his newborn hair at the nape of his neck! Can you say, "Party in the back?" :P
-Still loves being put into the carseat and getting changed on his diaper pad. I know that is unusual, so I am very grateful!!!
-Has started wearing cloth diapers. It's new, but seems ok so far! He has sensitive skin and he seems to prefer the feel of cloth diapers. At least he doesn't cry at a wet diaper as quickly anymore :) They can be a pain to change because there are two pieces instead of 1, but I love that they are re-usable, he is more comfortable, and, let's face it, are SUPER CUTE!
-Can sit in a Bumbo seat without help! The leg openings are too large for him, though, so he only lasts a few mins before he can pull one leg toward him and start to topple off balance.
A squeaking conversation:
Showing off his big accomplishment this month of holding onto toys:
Next big accomplishment: Sitting in the Bumbo!
Love to stand up!
Now wearing cloth diapers!
(Ben's Korean is starting to rub off! Baby Gangnam Style)
I LOVE this one!!!
We picked up this hat at Children's PLace while taking a family stroll around our outdoor mall on a cold night. He hasn't worn it since,but I think it looks so cute and funny on him I had to document it!
I love these pictures!
We are really enjoying his fun personality and anxiously waiting for the next cute things
like laughing and sitting up, but I already miss my tiny little newborn.
So yes, I know he's getting big, but try not to remind me :(
