Theodore: 4 Months


You are 4 months old big boy!

Here are some of your stats for the month:

-You went to the doctor Monday and weigh in at 13 lbs. 4 oz.

-You are in size 2 diapers.  You are in 3 and 3-6 month clothes.

-You've accomplished holding your head up.  Such a strong boy.  Now onto sitting up.

-Still rolling from belly to back, but not the other way around yet.  You sure try though!

-You know mommy, daddy and sissy's voice.

-You are so smiley and started laughing this month.  Very much a boy laugh.  You are ticklish under your chin and on your feet.  Madelyn likes to tickle your feet.

-Still a fan of bath time.  You've discovered how to splash!

-You are still sleeping pretty well.  Great at night!  Your naps are a little hit and miss.  Sometimes it's an hour sometimes 2.  You're growing like crazy so always very hungry.

-Your naps are typically from 9am-10:30am or 11am and afternoon nap from about 1pm-2:30pm.  Then you take a catnap around 4:30pm or 5pm and wake up around 6pm ready for that last bottle.  You go down early like your sister, around 7pm.  But you don't wake up until 7:30am or 8am.  Just whenever mom and dad get you up.  You are very happy in the morning.

-Eating 8 oz. every 3.5 to 4 hrs during the day.  We switched you over to soy yesterday and it seems to be helping your tummy.  We'll try it for a month and see how it goes.  You're Eating rice cereal 3 times a day and just started veggies yesterday.  Your first is carrots and you seem to like them.  You're not spitting them out, so that's good!  Next is peas.

-Starting to "talk" a little more and becoming very observant of things.

-You are definitely a thumb sucker!

-Doing great for all babysitters.  You love to be cuddled and they sure love to cuddle with you.

We sure do love our baby boy!

4 months!

-Mommy and Daddy
