Colton 4 Months

Little buddy you are 4 months old! I can't get enough of you. I love getting to know you more each day. Part of me wishes the baby stage could last forever. All I have to do is talk to you and your huge smile lights up your whole face. I love you bunches little boy.

Size: You weigh 16 lbs.1oz (62%), you are 26.5 in. (94%), and your head is 89%. You wear 3-6 or 6 month clothes and size 2 diaper. You have the best baby legs.

Eat: You eat every 2-3 hours during the day and usually twice at night. Sometimes more. We need to work on this.

Sleep: Things haven't been the best lately. You go down around 7:30 and sometimes will go until 2am but other times you wake before midnight. Then it seems to be every couple hours after the initial waking. And then from 4am onward you usually wake up even more. It's hard to say exactly...the nights are a blur. But that's ok you are totally worth it and you will sleep through the night eventually. We are experimenting with keeping your arms out of the swaddle since you have now learned to roll from back to tummy. 

Likes/Dislikes: You like being held, being in motion (car or stroller or bjorn), baths, people talking to you, sucking on your hands and now you are beginning to put toys in your mouth when you are able to grab them.

Skills: You started laughing a couple weeks ago and it is adorable. You also make some funny sounds especially when you seem bored or a little unhappy and you voice it loudly but it's not a cry. You also just learned to roll over from back to tummy. You are getting more interested in objects and try to bring them to your mouth. 

You are a sweet and adorable baby and I am so glad you are ours!

Merlin's Magic Cotton Sleep Suit worked for us for the weird time between 4 and 5 months!

Thanks! I have heard great things about those! I actually was close to buying one a while back but then was worried he would get too hot. It is already so warm here!!
