Scout // 4 Months

Scout had his 4-month checkup today and we got to see how much he has grown, unfortunately he had to get some shots. We did get the ok to start cereal and some foods. He has definitely made some big changes over the month as far as his strength and movements. He is more active and vocal. We are starting to really see his personality. As you can tell by the photos I post, he is so happy and playful. I can already tell he is going to be quite the social little guy. After reading what Sawyer was doing at this age, we decide to bring out the Jolly Jumper and he loved it! We also plan to let him try out the walker this week too.

Here is how Sawyer stacked up when he was four months. Once again they are super close, even the exact same weight!

Scout 4 Month stats

weight: 15 lbs. 2 oz. (41 percentile) - at 3 months he was 14 lbs. 6 oz.

height: 25 1/4 inches (52 percentile) - at 3 months he was 25 inches

clothing: 3-6 and 6 months. 3 months is really too small. Wearing 6-12 month socks

diapers: still Size 2

eating: Same as last month.....breast milk, eating every 3-5 hours depending on how active he is. Earring longer each time for 15-18 minutes. We think he might be ready for some cereal/oatmeal because he isn't sleeping as long at night now. He seems to be hungry every 4-5 hours at night too when it used to be more like 6-8.

sleeping: He is great at sleeping at night, will eat and go right to bed but not sleeping as long as he used to, 4-5 hour stretches. Sleeping better at school now though, has even taken a 3-hour nap there.

teething: No sign of teeth yet but he is drooling like crazy and constantly chews on his WHOLE hand, yes the whole thing fits in his little mouth.

other updates: Holding his head up on his own and even acting like he wants to crawl. He talks a ton, constantly cooing and babbling like he is trying to converse with us. He reminds me of Sawyer, always moving his arms and legs, especially to music or when he is excited.

Here are some more pictures and videos from the month:
he was so happy during our shoot, had to share a couple more

He even lets his brother shave his legs

Felt like such a big boy!
