Mr. Hayden you are 4 months old! I’m going to say this every month, but I really can’t believe how fast the time is going!
You are still such a smiley, happy boy and we just love it!
You really only cry or fuss when you are tired or hungry and who can blame you for that? 🙂
You just had your 4 month well check and here are your stats:
Weight:14 lbs 11 oz. (42%)
Height: 25 1/4 inches (66%)
Head: 42 1/2 cm (58%)
Dr. Willman says you are absolutely perfect 🙂
(right before your shots)
You did so well with your shots. You only cried for about 10 seconds and a soon as I picked you up you whimpered a little and then you were all smiles again.
You are now in size 2 diapers and still mostly 0-3 month clothes. We’ll be moving to 3-6 month shortly!
This month you attended the South Dakota State Fair and went to your very first Labor Day parade!
You still LOVE your bath. Now you always take the washcloth by your mouth and suck the water out. It is so funny.
You love playing with your daddy. He is the only one who can really make you belly laugh. Mommy tries but I guess I’m just not as funny as him 🙂
You are starting to get a little more hair. You can actually see it when the light hits it just right 🙂
We moved you out of the Rock N Play and into the Pack N Play right after you turned 3 months old. We also took away the swaddle when you were 15 weeks old. I was so worried it would effect your sleeping, but it didn’t even phase you! You still slept the whole night!
(your last night being swaddled)
You are so animated. You are constantly kicking your arms and legs, making noise, and moving your head around to see what’s going on.
You have mastered the high pitched squeal and love hearing yourself. Deb has even commented that you have one of the highest squeals she’s ever heard haha!
You do so great on your tummy now. You love lifting your head up and you even mastered rolling over!
You still love your hands are are constantly sucking on your fingers. You also discovered your feet this month. You reach down to grab them and make the funniest grunting noises while doing it. It’s so cute.
You are still getting only breastmilk and you take around 6 ounces every 2-3 hours.
You are so happy in the mornings. Your dad and I always comment that it’s one of our favorite times with you. You always wake up smiling!
Your sleeping habits have changed a little bit and you started waking up in the night sometimes. Some nights it’s once and some nights it’s 3 times!
Sometimes you just want to be held and you fall right back asleep and sometimes you are hungry, but you fall right back asleep after you eat.
You are such a sweetheart, Hayden. You are growing and changing every day right before my eyes. I cherish every minute that I get to spend with you and am so happy that God chose me to be your mama! I love you so much!
