My baby boy hit the 4 month mark today! As I was organizing photos to put in his 2-4 month album, I was simply amazed at how he has grown and changed in just these four short months. His personality and disposition is more and more apparent everyday, and I am so looking forward to what develops in him next.
Oh my little Isaac, how the time flies by so quickly. I wish I could freeze it for just a minute, so I could just hold you.
His 4 month appointment is on Thursday. I am mentally preparing myself to watch them hold his legs down and stick needles into his thighs, while his little face goes from happy to "what the he$$!!!!" in less than a second. I am not sure how much he weighs, but we did manage to hold down the wiggle worm long enough to see that he passed 25 inches. He is still really small, I think. He is still in most of his 0-3 month clothing and just barely into Size 2 diapers. Like, the Size 2s are ginormous on him. We haven't had any major blowouts in the smaller size, knock on wood.
We have whole conversations now filled with goo's, coo's, aroo's and moo's. Although he still fits in the bouncer, it has become a thing of the past as he likes to be up level with mommy and daddy while at home. He loves to stand and jump, so the jumperoo may need to be assembled shortly. He loves the bath, loves to splash, loves the water. He has definately become more mobile. I will put him on his play mat and come back 5 minutes later and he will be completely flipped around. I must have a break dancer on my hands, with all the spinning he does. He sits up really well and loves to sit in his activity chair. His feet are in his mouth constantly, as is Sophie, the French girafe (I didn't name her...that is what her box said!).
I started giving him cereal last week. I put about 1 tablespoon into 4 ounces of milk and he loves it. This came about because Miss K told me that he ate 7 ounces in one feeding. Yeah...so I don't pump that much. I am getting between 4 and 5. He needed a supplement. LOVES IT!
I can't believe how fast the 4 months has gone by. It seems like just yesterday I was begging for the epidural (well, I might have asked for one while I was getting my IUD...is that wrong?)
