Jackson - 4 Months

Jackson, you are 4 months old!! You are becoming more and more fun each day! You are so happy all the time, we can just look at you and you break into the biggest smiles! You are becoming a much better sleeper, usually only waking up once a night, but occasionally twice. You’re getting better about your naps too, I just wish you would sleep a little longer than 45 minutes. Everyone tells me you have the cutest chubbiest cheek, and I’m glad you don’t mind people squishing them, because EVERYONE does, especially your Daddy and me. We just can’t help it!
You roll extremely well from your tummy to your back, but only when you want to, which of course is never when mommy has the video camera out or when I want to show someone. You rolled from your back to your tummy once, but I think it was an accident. We’ll start working more on that. You love to play Peek-A-Boo, airplane, and go side-to-side with your daddy. You also LOVE to hear him sing. You laugh a lot now days; especially when we tickle you…you take after your mommy in that area.
We went to your 4 month appointment and Dr. R said you looked absolutely perfect! The doctor that delivered you told me that you would be tall and skinny, and from the looks of it, she is right!
Weight: 14 lbs 13.5 oz (50%)
Height: (80%)

You had to get 4 shots this month and you were WONDERFUL! You screamed for about 3 minutes, but you calmed down so quickly once I started talking to you, you were back to your happy self before I finished getting you dressed. Since you were hungry, I had to rush home instead of stopping at Sonic like I normally do every time I take you to the doctor. I can’t wait until you’re old enough to enjoy cheese-tot awesomeness with me…you’ll love them :)
You’re still eating like a little piggy. I’ve tried giving you cereal a few times, but it is just not working out. It gives you awful gas every time, so bad one night you were waking up screaming in pain every 1 ½ hours…not a fun night for either of us. I wanted to cry right along with you. After waiting a couple weeks and trying again, with the same results, I decided that you can just skip cereal. Dr. R said we could start veggies and fruits soon, since the cereal isn’t working out, so I’ll probably let you try that in a few weeks. Maybe once you can handle that, I’ll try the cereal again. Right now you seem like you’re getting plenty to eat, so I’m not in a rush.

I can’t believe you’re already 4 months old! It’s flying by so quickly. You have turned my world completely upside down, and I love every single minute of it. I love you so much baby boy!

Apparently the fourth month is also the goofy-face month. I barely have any pictures of him without a silly face in it! Ha!
Monkey Boy!

Playing in the exersaucer.

This just cracks me up! I love his little face! We were watching the snow out the front door, but I don't know what he was doing here!

Just relaxing :) and looking a LOT like his daddy here!
