Big boy Simon turned 4 months old on the 21st! I was waiting until today to post his update, because he had his 4 month checkup today with his doctor. He was such a big boy and was all smiles, until he got his shots. Even then, he only fussed for a minute and then was okay. Poor babe.
Weight-15 lb, 2 oz (40th percentile for weight)
Height- 26in (75th percentile for height)
Head Circ- 42.4 cm (60th percentile for head circ.)
The doctor also said Simon has eczema, he has a rash on his tummy and some patches on his ankles. She prescribed some medication for that, so hopefully it will get better soon!
These two! I can already tell they're going to be quite the duo, and get into lots of trouble together. Yay for me. Hah. Adeline has been wanting to hold Simon more and more. She gives him kisses and says, "night night" before bed, which is so sweet!
Simon is still nursing. Yay! There was a week between when Simon was 3 and 4 months old that I about gave up. He just did not want to nurse. I tried to nurse each feeding session, and usually ended up pumping and having to give him a pumped bottle. Thankfully, it only lasted a week and we are back on schedule and doing great. For a week or two after that he was feeding every 4 hours, now he is back to every three hours. Still going to bed between 930-10. Then we will feed usually once during the night, sometimes twice.
So I didn't end up writing down any sleep times, like I wanted to from last month. Who was I kidding, it lasted about a
week day. Anyway, he seems to be taking 2 really good naps one in the morning and one in the afternoon and one shorter one in the evening. He has been sleeping better at night. He goes to bed between 930-10, then wakes up around 3 (feeds) then goes back to sleep until 6-7 (feeds) then goes back to sleep for another hour or two.
-Simon rolled over (back to tummy). He has only done it a handful of times, but always fun to see!
-He tried rice cereal (mixed with breastmilk) for the first time. He ate it, but was a little unsure at first.
-Definitely on his way to sitting up! He definitely prefers being in the upright position now, rather than lying down flat on his back. He is constantly picking his head up and leaning forward, trying to sit up.
-Getting to be a big boy, he has out grown all of his 0-3 and 3 month clothing and is wearing 3-6 month, 6 month, and even some 9 month clothing.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to check out Simon's other monthly updates (1 month) (2 months) (3 months)
Have a great day :)
