June: 4 Months Old!

Our little guy is 4 months old!  It's been so crazy watching him evolve and gain new interests every week, sometimes even overnight it seems??  This is a great age too- he is reaching now to explore new things (and not putting them in his mouth- yet.), responds to voices and his name, and is VERY distracted while eating his bottle ("was that the dog?  I love the dog!  Ooh a window!"  You get the picture.)

Age: 17 Weeks, 4 Months
Weight: 14 pounds, 15 ounces
New "Thing": Blowing bubbles with his spit and squealing with delight, discovering items with his hands
Favorite Words: Lately it’s just squealing : )
Favorite Activities: “Standing” with our support, being out in the backyard, and he just discovered TV with his new fave show about pirates
Signature Moves:  Rolling to his right side, or from stomach to back!  We also constantly find him in the opposite side of his crib from where we put him down the night prior, often with his face smushed into the mesh bumper…
Likes: so we went through a 3-week phase of completely hating the bath…and just last night we got back to thinking splashing everywhere was once again VERY exciting….
Dislikes: his binky, fine with us!
Mommy Likes & Dislikes: his laughs are honestly the best sound in the entire world, I could listen to that ALL day….Dislikes: a baby who wakes up for no reason in the middle of night after mastering “sleeping through the night”
Sleeps: since we got back from Oregon he immediately went into his crib in his own room for nighttime- cried the first two nights and now loving it; he will even cry now if he’s really tired UNTIL he gets into his crib; on average falls asleep around 8:30 and wakes at 7am; sometimes waking up on his stomach

Changes in Mood/Behavior: since about 14 weeks he’s been staying awake longer but still naps (powernaps) 3-4x a day 
Eating:  Around 6-8 ounces 5x a day, around 8 oz before bed
Clothes: 3-6 Months, 6 Month pajamas
Looking forward to:  crawling!  He seems so badly to want some mobility, I know this is a few months down the road but I’m excited to see it happen for him!
