He had his 4 month check up last Wednesday, and got a stellar report! He got 2 shots, but did GREAT!
Omg, boy you are growing like crazy! This month you weigh 18.4lbs. and you are 26 1/2 inches long. This puts you, little man in the 95th percentile. Wow! As of now,you are wearing 6-9 month clothes and as soon as we finish the last pack of size 2 diapers you're moving on up to size 3!

You are an absolutley happy/go lucky baby. You have the greastest smile ever, it lights up your whole face and anyone else's that looks at you. You have yet to meet someone you didn't like, however you are pretty fond of me, the mommy! Unless you are sleepy or hungry, you don't fuss much and are one pleasent little guy! Your giggle/laugh amazes me. You find the littlest things hilarious, it keeps us all laughing!
I am proud to say that you are still breast feeding every 4 hours. You take an 8oz bottle from your daddy at night, some bonding time for the boys and I have started you on oatmeal cereal in the morning and in the evening. Next up are veggies, we'll add that in for lunch! During the day at your sitters, you take about 6-8oz of breast milk in a bottle. You are a champ when it comes to eating!

Like I said in the feeding section, you nurse about every four hours, usually 5:30/6a, 10a, 2p, 6p, and we wake you for your 10/10:30p bottle. You are sleeping through the night from 10:30/11p until 5:30/6a. Sometimes you wake up around 3:30/4a for some snuggle time. I usually pick you up and put you in bed with me and snuggle up close together and you go back to sleep. You are still in Mommies room because I'm not ready to move you yet, but now you sleep in the pack n play because you grew out of your bassinet. During the day, you take a couple of naps, depending on where we are. Usually one between your 10 and 2 feeding and one between your 2 and 6 feeding. If we stay at home WE go back to sleep after your first am feeding, until sister wakes us up that is. You are a pretty much go with the flow kind of baby. Just like your sister, you sleep on the go. Which works well for us since we're on the go a lot.
This month you have learned to grab things. Toys, blankets, burp clothes and my hair. You love your blankets and to hold on to them tight. You also love the toys hanging from your carseat. There's a giraffe that has loops and things hanging from it that you pull on and a teething ring that you seem to hold on to a lot too. You have totally ditched the paci, which you weren't really fond of anyway, and have now found your thumb. I kinda like this because you can now soothe yourself, but Daddy is not a fan, he knows we can't take it away!

You still love your rain forest bouncey seat and batting at the monkey and toucan hanging from it. Since we're not always at home like in the beginning, you don't swing very much, but when you do you seem to like the pooh toys hanging from the toy bar. You now have a bumbo chair that you can sit in and watch tv, you are loving sister's cartoons, or play with toys.
|Your new chair-Bumbo!|

You are such a blessing to this family Wyatt Jo, and I am so in love with you it is indescribable! I can't imagine a day without your cute pudgy little face!
Love ya bunches baby!
