4 Months!

I was a bad mom this month. I didn't take many pictures, and I haven't even finished the 3 month scrapbook page!

But that's ok. LOOK HOW CUTE HE IS!

Nothing much has changed this month. Still 16 lbs, 13 oz (85%), and 26 in (64%).

He's been sick a couple times this month, which is new. I think his poor little immune system is having a hard time with Mommy going back to work.

He's also regressed on sleeping through the night- he'll often wake up at 3 or 4 AM lately. That's still at least 7 hours, which is good, but 11 hours was BETTER. So we're trying to tweak the schedule again, and see what works. Can't kids just stay the same? Do they really have to keep growing all the time?

I can get him to laugh semi-regularly now. He especially loves being "thrown" up in the air (I never let go of him, but I hold him up high and bring him down toward my face, and he cracks up!)

He's right in the beginning stages of learning how to sit. If we lean him back too far, he'll clench his stomach muscles to try and pull himself up. He likes to be up looking around, but if he's sitting up TOO far unsupported he still tips right over and folds in half. He's working on it.

The funniest thing I've discovered this month:
Sometimes when I'm driving him around, he'll get sick of being in the car and start fussing. For a while, I started turning off my audiobook when that happened and turning up some loud music to drown him out (I'm a great mom, right?). I realized after doing this a few times that he would actually STOP fussing when I did that. So I would think, ok, he's done, I can go back to my book.... and he would start fussing again. So apparently, the most soothing thing for my son when he's fussy in the car is loud, angry music. Who is this kid, anyway?

So on my private blog I have a picture of Kaitlyn in a Bumbo, and she is also 16 lbs and 26 inches long. So cute! (Both of our babies, I mean.)

ADORABLE! I love this post. Sorry he has been so sick. It is that season too. We do need to get together soon. He has grown up so much since I saw him last!

He is growing so fast--I can't believe he's trying to sit! So cute.
