4 Months

This month...
  • We attended the MCC Sale

  • Eat at 6:30, 9:30, 12:30, 3, 6, 8, 10:30
  • Take 2-3 naps during the day and sleep on and off during the evening
  • Mom spent a full day at work away from the boys
  • Both boys had a major meltdown for dad while mom was at the Fiddler on the Roof.
  • Clothing: 3M is snug, 3-6 month fits perfect and 6M is starting to fit really well. 
  • They both hold their heads up very well
  • One week they started putting their hands in their mouth and the next week they started playing with things that they could easily hold onto
  • Like being read to.  The books we read include: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do you See? Peek-a Who? Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb; and Peek-a-Pet?

  • One day during playtime I caught the boys holding hands even if they didn’t realize they were doing it, it was still cute.

  • Weighs 15 lbs. 2 oz. and is 26 ¾ inches long
  • Has been working to rolled over from his back to front all month but hasn’t accomplished it yet
  • Has rolled from front to back one time on April 25
  • Laughed for is dad on April 21 for the first time the same day Jase rolled over.  Apparently he didn’t want to miss out on showing new tricks that day. 
  • Consistently sleeps through the night
  • Wants to sit up. He will strain forward while in his car seat or setting in someone’s lap trying to sit up straighter
  • He is getting much more vocal and talks louder this month
  • Sucks on his thumb from time to time
  • Often has his hands in his mouth
  • Has drooled a lot this month
  • Had his first taste of beef jerky by accident.  Luckily mom caught it in time so he didn’t eat any

  • Weighs 14 lbs. 6 oz. and is 26 ½ inches long
  • On April 21, Jax was trying so hard to roll over, so I moved him to a different blanket away from Jase so he had room, when I turned back around Jase rolled over from back to front.  He has also rolled over at daycare that week.  
  • Laughed at daycare for the first time on April 23 and has given little laughs at home once in a while.
  • Mostly sleeps through the night, but has had a few nights where is wakes up at 4-4:30 because he misses mom.  (that is just what I tell myself)
  • Has his hands in his mouth a lot
  • Likes to study things in his hand like a blanket, toys, etc.
  • Holds his arms to his side frequently.  When his is really tired he will put his arms at his sides wanting to be swaddled tightly.


  1. This is such a fun stage!! They are so cute! I know I am biased, but I just can't wait to come cuddle them and play with them! I'm going to get the jumparoo and exersauser today. I will bring it to mom and dad on Saturday so they can bring them to you. Not much longer before they will be able to use them!

  2. LOVE the updates!! - Uncle S. in A. ;-)
