Happy 4 months


You are 4 months old now!  Wow! 
You weigh 13 # 15 oz = 29%
Your length is 24" = 16%
Your head is 43 cm = 69%
You are my little bobblehead- tiny body and big head. 
You  still fit into 0-3 month clothes mostly.  You are wearing a few 3-6 month clothes and jammies.  I think all of your weight is in your cheeks and head.
You eat a lot!  You are eating 5-6 times/day but sometimes you need an extra feeding or two.  Unfortunately I have had to give you 2 oz formula every now and then because I can't keep up with your demand.  You take about 36-38 oz breast milk per day.   
You are now wearing size 2 diapers. 
You stay awake anywhere from 1-2 hours after eating.  You still like Sophie the giraffe that Nana bought you and the plastic hole ball Uncle Clint and Aunt Anne bought you.  You like your playmat with keyboard kick plate and are really liking your jumper and bouncer.   
The weather has been great so we have been able to get out on several walks which you seem to really like.
You are continuing to smile more and more - I'm finally getting some pictures of your smiles.  You are definitely becoming a little charmer - you smile really easily at everyone.
You still really like being held - we can't put you down for too long.  Although, you don't want to sit still, you want to stand all the time.
You have started flipping from your stomach to your back. 
Your eyes still look like a deep blue color.
Your hair is continuing to lighten and is now a dark blonde/light brown.
You still like the tv and are transfixed, but we don't let you watch it, we still turn you away. Although, sometimes we are exhausted and let you stare at it for a few minutes to keep you happy.
For some reason, you have been fussier this past month. - When you have 2 - two hour naps and a couple of 45 min naps you are really happy, but it is difficult to get you to take 2 -two hour naps.  You usually sleep for 2 hours in the morning and then 45 min naps the rest of the day.
You are sleeping about 10 hours per night.   You go to sleep pretty easily, thankfully, but this past month has been rough sleep wise.  You have been waking up a minimum of 1-2 times per night.  You are waking up happy, it's so sweet seeing you on the monitor wake up cooing and then come in and get you and you smile at us -it's hard to be annoyed at 2 am when you are so happy.  
Everything goes in your mouth these days
Always on the move
Your fist tastes good
Teddy tastes good
You are really filling out
Practicing your whistling skills
My little leprechaun
3-6 month outfit - still kind of big and long

You are our sweet, precious gift from God!   We are so...thankful for you.  We love you so much!
Happy 4 months


  1. Ashley,
    Hudson is sooo cute! You totally had me laughing when you said his weight is in his cheeks and head. Reminded me of when my first son was a baby and it took him a year for his body to catch up with his head. It also looks like your little guy is teething. My 2nd boy began teething at 3 months old. I thought that was a bit early.
    Oh and I love his outfits. He's a handsome little guy!

  2. Happy 4 months Hudson! He is SO handsome! Our babies are getting big :)

  3. What a sweet boy! Happy 4 months!


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
