4 Month Update

That's 1/3 of a year! (for all of you 4th graders learning fractions)

Weight:16 lbs 13 oz, 85th percentile
Height: 25 3/4", 75th percentile
Head Circumference: 17", 75th percentile

Eats: He has started eating some 8 oz bottles at a feeding as opposed to the usual 6 oz.  Also, we've switched to the Level 2 nipples which have a slightly bigger hole this weekend.  I was noticing how lazy he was while he was eating and he was completely distracted by everything going on.  It would take for him to finish a bottle and he was quite gassy.  I'm noticing some decrease in the gassiness.

Also, the doctor gave the greenlight to start solids so we'll probably be giving him some rice cereal some time this week!  I promise not to put to many pictures of Ezra covered in food, but stay tuned for photos of his first feeding!

Sleeps: Amazing.

His new thing is that he "sings" himself to sleep.  He likes to be rocked to sleep (I know, bad mommy, I'm sure I'll be complaining when I have to break this habit) and while he's rocking he puts his mouth on my shoulder and "sings" until he falls asleep.  Cutest.Thing.Ever.

Likes: Jumping.  Seriously, the jumperoo is the best thing that's ever happened in this house.  He could jump all day.  He yells and laughs while he's jumping, and he basically has the springs maxed out.  His little feet are the cutest, he only uses his left foot but he really gets some air.  Best $22 I've ever spent!

Today, he officially started eating his feet.  He must've chewed them for 20 minutes straight at the doctor's so I'm thinking he's moving away from the chewing on the hands to chewing on his feet.  I only mind when he starts pulling off his socks.  We all know how I feel about baby socks...

Dislikes: The snot sucker.  It's his arch enemy.  He had a cold this past week which required frequent meetings with the snot sucker.  It is certifiable baby torture. You'd think I'd twisted off one of his toes or something.  Nope, just sucking snots.  And, yes, I think Ezra is the cutest baby - BUT - he's not as cute with boogers dripping out of his nose.  Ew.

Milestones: He has mastered the back to belly roll in both directions.  Still working on the belly to back.  He just gets mad once he ends up on his belly and kicks his feet and cranks until someone turns him back over so he can do it all again.

2 teeth.  Yes, 2, teeth have broken through on the bottom.  This explains all the drool, chewing, and some of the crying.

He blows raspberries all day long.  So cute.

Things I want to remember about this age: The way you sing yourself to sleep.

Your toothless smile.  I'm sure your toothy smile will be cute, too, but I know I'll miss those gummy ones!

The funny faces you make when you suck on your tongue or bite on your bottom lip.  I need to take more photos!

Here are some 3 month photos for your viewing pleasure:

  1. What is it with the 4 month photos? Jack was so anti at his 4 month photoshoot too! Maybe because they are a little more mobile?
    Anywho, super cute!!!! And I can't wait to see the first meal pics :)

  2. I literally "lol'ed" at the photo shoot! He's so cute and happy, I love it!


Tell me what you think ;)
