Dear Bo, You're 4 months old today...

Here's what you're up to:

  • You are just starting to wear 3-6 month clothes (but your 0-3 still fit).
  • You're in Size 1-2 diapers (for 12-15 pound babies).
  • At your last doctor's appointment (2 weeks ago) you weighed 13 pounds 8 ounces (25-50%), were 23 inches long (10%), and the circumference of your head was 16 inches.
  • You are a chubby baby!
  • You really did a turn around this month and are much more comfortable. At the first of the month you were still having 1-2 "meltdowns" a day and were extraordinarily hard to get to go down for a nap and for bed in the evening, but just this week, you started to get easier to put down and are rarely having any "meltdowns".
  • You smile and talk to us a lot. You are especially smiley and talkative in the mornings.
  • You really follow us with your eyes and head now.
  • You can roll from front to back and will stay on your tummy for a little while so long as we get on the floor and talk to you.
  • You love your floor gym, are finally enjoying your swing and bouncer, love your mobile and crib mirror, and have even started playing in your exersaucer.
  • You like baths but hate when we put your jammies on.
  • You had a couple of weeks of strange nursing sessions (thrashing around and fussing), but now you seem to be back on track. Nursing was such a challenge at first (understatement), but it such a sweet time now.
  • You eat every 3-3.5 hours during the day. You generally go to bed around 8pm, eat again at 10:30pm and 3am, then start your day at 7am. We're all getting more rest. We finally feel like we are getting into a routine! We attribute most of your better sleeping to your nap nanny. A friend at work told us about it, and it has really worked wonders with your reflux at night. This week you even went 2 nights in a row without eating in the middle of the night!
  • We have really enjoyed this month. It's so fun that you're starting to smile, "talk", and interact with us.
Just look how you've grown:
