tucker hit 4 months a couple of weeks ago and i thought i should probably document it here so i can look back and remember what he was like at this age.
this baby is just the sweetest thing. he has the sweetest little personality. he smiles all.the.time. (unless you are trying to make him go to sleep that is..) you literally just have to look at him and he will smile. i LOVE it.
he had his 4 month check up last week and weighted in at 15.5 lbs and measured 25 inches-putting him right at 50% for everything. it seems he may be a little more averaged sized that his sister who always hit right at 98% for everything :)
unfortunately, he has developed some inability to sleep more than 3.5 to 4 hrs at a time again. i do not know what to do with this kid! he was doing much better for about 6 weeks with only waking up once a night but lately it's just getting worse. i hear month 4 can be a time for sleep regression but i kind of just think he's becoming more aware of his surroundings and the fact that he is sleeping in a pack n play in the living room. i also think we are going to have to tackle the dreaded sleep training sooner rather than later. i'm kind of putting it off until we (hopefully!) move into our house in a couple of weeks and he will have a room of his own.
he has started rolling over pretty much any time he is put on his belly. he has also started to notice toys and grab onto them more often. he loves to have a thin blanket to hold on to and pull over his face. he has discovered his feet and will reach up to grab on to them as much as he can. he still doesn't care much for a pacifier but every now and then i can use it to help him get to sleep. he does love to suck on his fingers though.
he seems to be more aware of me and recognize me as a familiar face. which is sweet.
this baby is seriously cute and seriously sweet :)
