Ethan Graham is 4 months old!
He is getting bigger by the day. He is starting to look a little more filled out these days but he is still long and thin v. chunky. His head is definitely getting bigger and more round, too!
He is a good eater. He takes a bottle with no problems and is good when I feed him, too.
He LOVES his naps and can sleep for 2 hours, easily. He currently takes 3 naps a day anywhere from 1-2.5 hours. At night, he is doing well. He still wakes up 1-2x a night. However, he doesn't really need a night feeding anymore. The wakeups are more because he woke up during his sleep cycle and needs a little comfort. We put the pacifier in and go back to sleep.
We also put him down "drowsy but awake" and he will put himself to sleep. For naps, he still needs to be held/convinced he needs the nap at first. Once he relaxes, we can put him down and he goes to sleep.
Still likes the Ergo. Not loving his car seat or riding in the car anymore.
He can turn his head pretty smoothly from one side to the other.
He will turn his head when he hears one of us walk into the room or talk to him.
He can grab with both hands & transfer a toy from one hand to the other.
He kicks his feet in the water, when in the tub.
He is squealing and making more noise these days.
Rather than try to roll over, he is trying to sit up. Like, think V-Sits or rollups from pilates. That's him.
He found his feet! He likes to sit up and lean forward to grab his feet.
He is a pretty happy baby! He is usually very giggly and smiley, unless he's tired. Then, it's put him to bed ASAP. He is loving his time home with Dad. They have the naps down and have fun playtime together. He eats well, so we never worry about that!
We go to the doctor on Friday for his 4 month appointment. We will see his weight, height, etc. Sadly, he gets his 4 mo shots which will be so sad to see him cry! It is also his first Halloween! We'll show you a picture of his costume, if I can pull it off. :-)
