Landon: 4 Months

Baby boy, you're getting some personality! You seem so laid back all the time (unless you're hungry), and you are just a happy little monkey!
  • You had your 4 month checkup at the doctor today, and you're the size of an average 9 month old! You're 27 inches long, weigh 20 lb 4 oz, and have a head circumference of 17.5 inches. Dr. T just kept talking about how healthy you are, and you're right on track developmentally. You even did better with your shots this time (and I managed to hold it together, too).
  • You're reaching for everything! Mostly you're obsessed with my hair, but you've started really playing with your toys now. You grab and shake them around, and you just smile every time you do.
  • You just love that sister of yours. Any time she's around, you watch her every move. I'll admit that she is pretty entertaining (and it's safe to say that she adores you, too!).
  • You're rolling over now! Well, kind of. You just roll from your back to your tummy, and you don't quite go all the way yet, but you half-roll often!
  • You love to take baths. You kick and splash the whole time you're in the water. 
  • You sit up pretty well. We don't have a Bumbo, but you do a pretty good job sitting when you're supported in our laps. I think we're gonna bust out the exersaucer soon. 
  • We're still working on a good naptime schedule. It's a little tricky to be home all day for you to get two solid naps (we're usually gone in the mornings), but you do pretty well napping on the go. You even fell asleep playing on your little activity mat. You were wide awake, but I laid you down to play when you started to get fussy, and you just crashed. I felt bad that I didn't notice that you had gotten so tired, but you looked super sweet sleeping in the middle of the floor.
  • You do still sleep well at night though! Tuesday night you went to bed at 7:30 and didn't wake up until 6:45 in the morning. I'd call that success. You do occasionally wake up to eat in the middle of the night, but you go right back to sleep. (And I actually enjoy the sleepy snuggle time.)
  • You are just a sweetheart. We still love those squishy cheeks and that precious smile, and we're so proud to call you ours

Mommy and Daddy
