paxton henry: four months

Our little bear turned 4 months on December 25th.

Side note: I just realized I have yet to settle on one animal nickname. He's (snuggle/little) bear, (love/little) bug, (snuggle) bunny, (wiggle) worm, and piggy. I may have to scratch the last one if he ever gets chunky. Wouldn't want to give him a complex.

Back to the point....

I'm a little late with this post due to the holidays, but, as they say, it's better late than never. I know I'm going to love looking back on these updates when he's grown and gone (tear...), so here it goes:


weight: 15 lbs 1 oz (~50th percentile)

length: 25 inches (~50th percentile)

head circumference: 88th percentile. This is something doctors measure and I have no idea if other parents keep track of this. The only reason I'm noting it is because he was off the charts at his 2 month appointment!



favorite food: Mommy's milk

favorite toys: Big Bug, playmat



clothes: You wear mostly 6 months in onesies and sleepers, 9 months with the sleeves rolled up, some 3 months if it's fleece (doesn't shrink in the wash), and 3 months in pants. Whew!

diapers: Size 1



likes: Being nakey, paci, nursing, sucking/chewing on hands, "standing" (being supported in the armpits)

dislikes: Tummy time, being put in the car seat, staying in one place for too long



firsts: Christmas

milestones: You now roll from your tummy to your back (first time on Dec. 5th), grab toys (especially if we set them on your chest), and you are much better at sitting in your Bumbo.



sleeping: ~9-10 hours at night. We have just started leaving one arm out when we swaddle you for naps. This coming weekend we will begin putting you flat on your back to sleep at night instead of in the hammock!

eating: Every 3 hours. You have become very efficient and only take about 20 minutes per feeding.


And some outtakes, because there were BY FAR more non-useable pictures than useable ones.

Dancing?

Ooo, sign!

Let's eat it.

Seriously, are we done yet?

Typical.

He is absolutely adorable! Four months starts my FAVORITE stage of babyhood--he'll really start getting a personality now. Enjoy!!!

Too cute! I'm totally jealous of the 9/10 hrs of sleep - can't wait to get to that stage.
