One of the biggest changes was how much more he enjoyed being in a sitting and standing position. Sometimes he'll cry when on his back until you lift him up. He just looooves to be upright and look around. He also finally discovered his hands. He will just hold them out in front of his face and stare at them and then shove them into his mouth. His hands are constantly in his mouth now. Still not really reaching out yet though. There have been a handful of times that I've seen him attempt to grab something. The winkle toy is nice because it is easy for him to grab onto.
Weight: 15lbs 15ozs
Length: 25 inches
Diaper size: Size 3
Clothing size: All 3-6 month size plus towards the end of the month, he started wearing 9 month pants. 6 month size was just too tight for his Buddha belly!
-Babybjorn Babysitter Balance: Love this bouncer although he is starting to tolerate it a little less. He prefers to be more upright. But he is willing to take a bottle in this thing, so we still love it.
-bibs: This kid is always drooling, so we need lots of bibs.
-Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Puppy: He loves this little toy dog that sings. He lights up when he sees it.
-Lamaze Play & Grow Jaques the Peacock: He loves to stare at this while in his car seat.
Other things of note about month 4:
-loves when we shake his arms. Makes him laugh every time.
-loves a game where I take him from a sitting position to a standing position. I'll using say "uuuup" in a high pitched voice and "doooown" in a low pitched voice.
-He loves to be tossed in the air or turned upside down. I have a feeling he's going to be a rambunctious little boy. He just loves to be tossed around.
-Loves, loves, loves to be in a sitting position. He can even sit in a tripod position momentarily.
-He has also really started to notice the TV. I have to turn him away from it or turn it off because he'll just stare at it. Sometimes he'll even smile at the people on TV.
-Sometimes when he's laying on his back, he'll arch his back and stick is butt in the air.
-This kids squeals and screams like no other. It's so funny!
-He's got great head control now, and can lift his head up so high.
-A few times while he was on his tummy, he's tried to get on his knees.
He has finally started tolerating his car seat. The last couple of weeks, we've been able to get out of the house easily with him. We even went out to eat at a sushi restaurant!
Finally old enough to be worn forward facing! He loves it!
We bought a BOB revolution stroller. It's been so nice taking him out for walks in it and I think he enjoys facing forward.
Month 4 has been awesome! I love watching him learn and his little personality come out. I can't wait see him grow and learn even more. He's such a happy baby. Always smiling and squealing with joy. I feel so lucky that he's my baby.
Your Dad and I love you so much! We can't possibly imagine our lives with out you now. Our hearts have never been so full of love. You are the center of our life and we can't wait to see what month 5 has in store for us!
