4 Months!

Mason is 1/3 of a year old! Can you believe it?!?!?! We can't!

Our sweet, smiley boy is growing like a weed...

... well, kind of. He had his 4-month check-up this week and his stats are as follows:

Weight: 12 lbs 12 oz - 12th percentile

(2 months he was 10 lbs 3 oz - 21st percentile)

Length: 24" - 22nd percentile

(2 months he was 21.75" long - 15th percentile)

Head Circumference: 17" - 74th percentile

(2 months he was 15.75" - 51st percentile

He's on 100% formula now (we're trying to make sure that he maintains his percentile and doesn't drop anymore before his 6-month check... once he starts eating solids I'll mix a lot of frozen breast milk into those to use them up) and takes 4 bottles a day. His typical day looks something like this....

7:30 a.m. - Wakes up super happy and smiley :)

7:45 a.m. - Takes an 8 oz bottle

9:00 a.m. - Goes down for his morning nap (we're stil swaddling him)

11:30 a.m. - Awake and hungry! Drinks a 6 oz bottle

1:00 p.m. - Down for his afternoon nap

3:30 p.m. - Awake and time to eat another 6 oz bottle

5:00 p.m. - Down for his evening cat nap

6:00 p.m. - Up again, if we try cereal it's usually now

6:30 p.m. - 8 oz bottle

7:00 p.m. - bath, pajamas, stories with Luke

7:30 p.m. - bedtime

Here are a few other random bits of 4-month info:

- CONSTANTLY has his hands in his mouth... pulls the paci out to get his thumbs in there

- Hair is starting to come back in

- Smiley, smiley, smiley - all the time!

- Rolls from his tummy to his back and occasionally from back to tummy

- Sleeps in his own room and is swaddled during naps and at night

- Still wearing mostly 0 - 3 month clothes, but can wear some 3 - 6 month shirts

- Loves to have raspberries blown on his belly

- Loves it when he holds our fingers and goes from laying down to sitting and then standing

- Not super content to be laying down all the time - wants to be held upright :) Still can't believe there's a 4 on that sign! Time goes by WAY too fast
