4 Month Update

Just look at that little face!!! It makes me want to burst with love. I can't believe we are at the four month stage already. Time flies when you are having fun.

Height: I don't know, I haven't had you measured since your 6 weeks check up and you've grown a lot since then. Maybe I should get the measuring tape out!

Weight: you are now 13lbs 10! You've put on a whole 2lbs since you were born. I don't think that seems like a lot but the Health Visitor said that was a good weight gain. She said you looked like you were thriving which was really great to hear.

Routine: still hasn't changed much from last month. You are still feeding every two hours during the day and still no naps!

Sleep: still continues to be really great at night. Usually from 10-7 then 8-10 even 11 sometimes. I think this is you making up for the fact you will rarely nap during the day. You will occasionally fall asleep after a feed but you will wake up after 15 minutes. You have maybe a managed a decent nap a handful of times through the month. However it's something to work on through the month cause I do worry that it's not doing you any good not napping.

Clothing: You are still in 3-6 month clothing. Trousers are starting to you a little better but still a bit baggy on the waist as shown in the picture above! You are still in size 3 nappies. I guess you could start wearing your 4-6 month stuff from H&M but there's still so much of your wardrobe you haven't worn. I hate going up a size like that when you've still got stuff from the lower level to wear (even though they are totally different sizes)

Likes: you are really starting to enjoy things a lot more. You're reaching for your you's now as apposed to you only touching then when they were put into your grasp. 
I really love seeing you holding onto things and pulling them towards you. Even if it is just to put them into your mouth. 

Dislikes: Still napping!

Milestones: You have started teething, you are dribbling like crazy and every other day usually you have a little cry cause your gums are sore. A little bit of teething gel usually does the trick if you don't lick it all off my finger instead. Definitely no teeth cutting through yet, but I wonder if it will be long. You have definitely been a bit more content this month. We managed a couple of shopping trips on our own and with Granny and you seemed a lot more happy to sit in your pram and play with your toys. We even had a day trip down to Moffat to see your Granny and Papa C in their caravan and were an angel all day. You even loved playing on the swings with daddy.

Love Mummy x
