A Quarter of a Year

Hudson is 4 months old!

We finally moved into size 2 diapers. I have officially removed all of the 0-3 month clothing out of his closet. His well check deemed him 14.2 pounds! He did great with his shots, cried like he should but quickly calmed down and took a nap.

He is now playing in and enjoying the exersaucer - his sister was more excited about this than he was. She sat right next to him and made sure he saw all of the toys and knew how to use them. I think he just stared at her instead of the toys. I have to tell her to slowly turn him to see other toys, that contraption is overstimulating enough when the toys aren't moving. His feet don't touch the bottom of the saucer and I love that. We have to prop him up with a thin blanket sometimes or he falls over face first, and looks terribly uncomfortable.

He eats every 3-4 hours. Usually it's 3 during the day and he sleeps though the night. He went through a growth spurt and gets a 6 ounce bottle of formula in the evening - to give me a break and a chance to make dinner and clean it up. And bond with his dad. 

He has more routine naps at home, usually around 9am, 1pm and 5-6pm, then bedtime around 9pm. At school things are different and it's a "big deal" if he stays asleep for an hour. I tell him every day to take a long nap, at least 2 hours. 

He smiles. A LOT. Sometimes I think his pacifier doesn't stay in his mouth because he is smiling so much. He rolls from side to side, but has yet to roll on his belly. I'm anxiously waiting! He loves to take baths and pees every time his naked body hits the water. And then just sits there and enjoys his wash. He giggles a lot. Especially when you play with him or smooch him behind the ears.
