Tyler turned 4 months old on October 23! We had a doozie of a time trying to get a pic of him with his 4m sticker. Every time we tried to snap a pic, he would suck on his fists which covered up the sticker. This is the best we could get:
I finally just stuck it on his butt.
He's mastered the grip and likes holding onto his toys/blankie. Unfortunately he likes to apply the death grip to my hair as well. I see a short style in my future.
Even after he's fallen asleep, he's still holding them.
He likes helping with diaper changes, or least he thinks he's helping.
This kiddo loves getting his diaper changed. He smiles and coos through the whole thing.
He loves being read to.
He's mastered rolling over both ways and can flip over instantly. He loves being on his tummy and flips to it every chance he gets. This is what I woke up to:
Up until now, Ty has slept in our room almost exclusively and has determined his own bed time. We started a bed time routine on his 4 month birthday. We start the routine at 8p. We read to him, change his diaper, put him in pajamas, dim the lights and either walk with him or put him in his swing just long enough to get him drowsy. We then we put him in his crib at 8:30p. It works like a charm and he does so well. Proud mama! I've decided to alternate between the crib and co-sleeper until I can adjust to him being upstairs.
He's quite the wiggle worm and rarely sits still.
He's really close to holding his own bottle. I bet he could if it wasn't for us using glass bottles as they are a little too heavy for him.
He's found a new nursing position he likes. He sits on my leg and nurses sitting up. I don't know how long this position will work as I'm short waisted and he's long waisted, it won't be long before he's too tall.
He recognizes the milk jugs and dives for them whenever he sees them. It's quite hilarious!
He only had 1 patch of strawberry blonde newborn hair left, so we cut it off and saved it in an envelope. He's now a pure blondie.
Seems everywhere we go, ladies gaga over Tyler. Kerry says he's a chick magnet. He jokes that maybe we could rent him out to single guys to recover some of the IVF cost.
Tyler gets lots of comments on what a calm, content baby he is. We have an ongoing joke whenever we get compliments regarding him, we tell them we paid extra for that upgrade.
He's continuing to grow out of his clothes lengthwise rapidly. I started him in his 3-6m size and he's already too long for about half of his sleepers.
He weighs 13lb14oz.
Show and Tell:
Nothing new, just getting closer to being bald. =(
