Luke Andrew - 4 Months Old

Month - 4 Months Old, January 12th, 2015

Height - 26.5 inches (2 ft, 2.5 inches) (95th percentile)

Weight - 16 pounds, 4.5 ounces (68th percentile)

Diaper Size - 3!  We just finished out the size 2 diapers and now were onto size 3 diapers. I have a hard time buying in bulk of diapers right now because of his height and weight gain. I don't want to be stuck with a bunch of diapers that don't fit him.

Clothing Size - mostly all 9 month clothing and some 6 month clothing (pants only and those are getting too small). His jammies were just too short for his long leggies so we moved him up in the New Year! I also noticed that his onesies were getting tight and hard to button up, so we are in the 9 month onesies.....is this kid ever going to slow down in the clothing department? I was joking with Andy that he will be in 24 month clothes by his 1st Birthday!

Sleep - we've gotten into a sleep routine but it's not sleeping through the entire night...ugh! Bedtime process starts between 6 and 7 pm. Bath, bottle then bed. You are really good at just falling asleep now when I lie you down. Sometime you whine but you usually put yourself to sleep. Then you start to stir around midnight. Sometimes you will go back to sleep and other times you want to eat right then and there. Then you're back up anywhere around 4-5 AM which works perfect on weekdays so I can feed you, change you and then get ready for work myself. On weekends I put you back down and you will sleep until 6:30 or 7 AM. 

Eating - 5 ounces and we started on rice cereal on New Years Day. I could tell that the formula just wasn't filling him up. He's done great so far on the rice cereal. We haven't been consistent with it though because you got your first ear infection in both ears and have been quite crabby lately.

Likes - when it's time to eat, his pacifier "Bink", bath time and baby massages, mornings when he is the most happiest, car rides, his light up play mat, being held, looking around when we are out shopping and he is awake, comfy cozy blankets, kisses from Mommy, people talking to you,playing with Daddy (air drumming, rocket ship noises, air karate), Mommy singing silly songs to you and having you dance along 

Dislikes - sitting in one place for too long, sitting in his car seat when the car is NOT moving, stuffy noses, coughing, getting his blood drawn, getting his nose un-stuffy (although he is getting use to it and doesn't fuss as much), being tired, being hungry, being ignored

Firsts - Christmas, New Years, ear infection, trying rice cereal, 9 month clothing, sitting on Santa's lap, going to work with Mommy, car shopping, taking the newborn insert out of the car seat (you fit so much better in there now)

Nicknames - Mr. Luke, bubba, little dude, little buddy, buddy, Mommy's baby, booger, cutie patootie

What a cutie! He's bigger than Liam (his 4mo appt was Monday) but not by much! Liam does 6oz bottles with a tablespoon of rice cereal in it-maybe try that? When we switched to that, he started sleeping through the night. Woo!!!! He does to bed later too, around 8:30 or 9 and we have to wake him up on weekdays, on the weekend he gets up around 8:30. Oh, my blog is private now so shoot me an email if you want an invite to keep following along! :)
