4 Months Old!

Yesterday, Russell turned 4 months old! Here he is for his regular monthly photo shoot:

We went to the doctor today, and Russell got his next round of shots :( We'll see if he takes it better, worse, or the same as last time!

His stats:
14 lbs ~ 40th percentile
25 inches ~ 50th percentile
41 3/4 cm head circ ~ 40th percentile

Here's the news about Russell for the past month:

~He is now grabbing toys, examining them, and putting them in his mouth
~Is sleeping through the night - most nights he sleeps from 7:30 or 8 to 5 am, then eats, then goes right back to sleep until 6:30 or 7! Yay!
~And he moves all over the crib - I never come in to find him how I left him
~Is thisclose to rolling back to front - he really gets all the way over, but his arm stays pinned under him
~Loves the rice cereal; he opens his mouth really wide and will sometimes grab the spoon and stick it farther in his mouth - so funny! Also, the dr told us to start vegetables, so we will be doing that soon (and posting pictures)!

I'm sure there are other things I can't think of - I should start taking notes :) He is such a good baby now! We love him dearly!

  1. Cute pics Jenn! He blends very well with the chair! :) I am so amazed at the success of the sleep training you did! Wow! Russell is a month ahead of where Isaac was! He didn't start sleeping like that consistently until 5 months old! I think we'll have to try your method with the next one! Isaac was right at 14lbs at 4 months also! He was abnormally tall though and had a huge head. Ha! Russell is a little more proportioned it seems. :) Look forward to seeing you Wednesday!
