4 Months!

Our precious boy is 4 months old! Can you believe it? How is time going by so quickly? I hope it slows down. I feel like if I blink my eyes one more time, he is going to be walking.

4 Months:

Weight: We have Logan's 4 month check up on Thursday, so I don't know his exactly weight, but last Monday he was 16 lbs. on the nose, so I'm going to guess that by his appointment he will be close to 16 1/2 lbs.

Length: Again, not sure until Thursday, but maybe 25 inches?

Eating: Logan was sleeping through the night, but for the last week he has been waking up around 3 am to eat. I always wake him up to eat at 5 am before I go to work. He recently went up to a 6 oz bottle when he wakes up with Chris in the morning. Then eats two more bottles while I am at work. Then nurses a few times once I get home. Only 4 more days until Mommy is home for the Summer! YAY!

We plan to talk to the doctor at his appointment about when to start rice cereal. I was pretty sure I wanted to wait until 6 month to introduce solids, but Logan has really been showing signs that he might be ready to start before that. He is very interested in what we are eating, and actually opens his mouth when he sees us eating. He has great head control and is sitting with assistance. We'll see what the doctor says!

Wearing: Logan is wearing all 6 months clothes and even some 6-9 month things. He is wearing size 2 diapers, but as soon as we finish this HUGE pack I bought, we will move to the 2-3's.

Sleeping: He is so great about letting us know when he is tired and goes right to sleep as soon as we lay him down. He usually goes down around 8:30, but tonight he is was exhausted and went down around 7:30. He sleeps until around 2 or 3, wakes up to eat, goes back down until 5, eats again, and sleeps until about 8am.

Social Skills: pppppppppppppp......... That is Logan's new sound. He loves to "motorboat". He is also drooling like crazy! He loves to smile and is laughing out loud. He loves to be read to and talks to the characters in the book. I just ordered him a bunch of books from the Scholastic book clubs at school and went to the Scholastic Warehouse Sale today with Megan and Wyatt. I think Logan has about 50 new books!

Motor Skills: We have a roller! Logan started rolling from back to tummy overnight. He did it about 4 times today! As you can see in his picture, he is sitting up very well with assistance and can even sit by himself for a few seconds. He loves to grab his toys and put them in his mouth. He has figured out how to take his paci out and get it close to his mouth again, but he doesn't know how to get it back in. He has also found his feet. While he is laying on his back he curls his legs up and grabs his feet.

Here are some recent pictures:

His monthly monkey picture! Look how much he has changed in just 4 months!

Relaxing in my robe and slippers!

Look! I can sit for a few seconds all by myself!

Logan is now rolling from back to tummy. He tries to pull himself over by pulling his own hand. He shakes and his finger tips go white from the pulling. It's really cute!

Sitting with my monkey friend!

All dressed up after church on Mother's Day.

All warm and snug after my bath! How sweet is that face?

Granddaddy and Barbara came over to eat hamburgers and celebrate Logan's 4 month birthday! Logan wore his camo outfit that Granddaddy gave him when he was born.
