4 Months!

Didn’t I just do a 3 month post? How can I slow these months down?!?

Well, ready or not, Little Dude is 4 months old! We have so much fun together every single day- singing, reading books, visiting friends, laughing (or yelling) at our doggies…I love being Grayson’s mommy!

We went to the pediatrician on Friday, and here are the latest stats:

Weight: 11 pounds, 13 ounces (4%- yep, he’s doubled his birth weight and then some!)
Height: 23 inches (4 %- well, height genetics are NOT working in his favor!)
Head Circumference:  15 inches (1 %- yes, he has a tiny head, but we are going to cram a lot of knowledge in there! We are going to start memorizing multiplication facts very soon!)

The doctor said yes, he’s itty bitty, but he’s following “his” curve just great!

Eating: Grayson is up to 4-5 ounces every feeing. We switched to “Level 2” nipples on his bottles, which makes a huge difference!

Sleeping: Thursday night, Grayson surprised us and slept EIGHT AND A HALF HOURS at one stretch! This blows out his previous record of 5 hours! I really, REALLY, really hope this is the beginning of a pattern.
Favorite new pastime: Chewing on his hands. He can’t get enough of them!
Clothes: 0-3 months, but some of the pants are getting a little short!
Happy 4 months little guy! I love you to the moon and back!

    That black and white picture is TOO MUCH! He's adorable. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad he's growing so well and perfect for his curve. PS – Where did you get the month onsies?

    Love the pics, he is adorable and looking so grown up. Following his own curve is just great, we know all about that over here!!
