4 Months

 Look at my handsome 4 month old!! Can you believe how big he is getting?!?
Stats: As of Monday's check-up, he's 15lbs 1oz and 25in long. He's in the 50th percentile for his weight & length and the 75th percentile for his head. Ok, so he has a slightly big head (inherited from his father). All that means is he's going to be extra smart!!
Sleeping Habits: Kaden has been sleeping through the night for a while now. Shortly after he turned 3 months, we moved him from the pack-n-play in our room to his crib in his room. He adjusted just fine, however I had a harder time. I woke up for several nights to go check on him. Paranoid?...maybe!!
Eating Habits: Still nursing exclusively. He eats every 3-4 hours. Sometimes I can stretch him 5. At his 4 month appt, his doctor gave us the ok to start food. We've tried cereal, and he wasn't a big fan. I gave him applesauce and he did a little better. I think he's still getting use to the spoon & texture. 
New Tricks: He's found his hands & toes, and he LOVES them. They're his new favorite toys!! He learned to roll from his back to his front. It took him lots of practice, but he finally got it. He's little smiles have turned into full fledge giggles. That's my new favorite trick!!
Dr. Visits: We went to the Dr. for his 4 month check-up. He's growing right on track. Dr. says we couldn't ask for a more perfect, healthy baby. We're very blessed! We go back in 2 months for his 6 month check-up.
General Observations: We've always had fun with our little guy, but I do believe he's entering into that really fun age! He's interacting more. He laughs out loud. He reaches out to try to grab things, and does hold them if he can get his hands on them. He laughs at silly faces. He plays with his hands. He tries to put his feet in his mouth. I think he's discovered his tongue and spitting. 
Look at that smile! LOVE IT!!!
