Four Month Update

Someone is now four months old so it was time for another doctors appointment and thus time for another update.


Height: 26.5 inches (93.14 percentile) 
Weight: 15 lbs 15.5 oz (59.36 percentile)
Head circumference: 16.73 inches (73.73 percentile) 

General Updates: 

-Strangers always comment about alert he is and they have recently begun commenting about how big he is.  Boy is he growing fast now. 
-He loves people watching.  It makes grocery shopping with him much easier.  I was in the habit of leaving him behind with daddy until I realized that all he needs is the ability to people watch. 
-He is great with strangers.  I love that about him.  It makes my momma heart happy to see how much joy he can bring other people.  He sat with another family almost all of sacrament meeting, only coming back for a diaper change, without so much as a whimper.  I'll admit I almost felt a bit unloved at that point.  
-He is starting to enjoy toys.  If you consider trying to eat them enjoying them. 
-Still loves his swing and now enjoys his ExerSaucer. 
-Finally outgrew 0-3 month clothing.  I think he will be in 3-6 month very very soon (cloth diapers being part of the reason). 
-Loves music, standing up, a good game of picaboo with mommy, and airplane with daddy. 
-Despite our best efforts not to let him watch it, he already acts like a tv addict.  I think it's due to the people watching interest.
-Was rolling over and then stopped for the most part.  I think he realized that he gets stuck on his stomach when he does it and he hates being stuck on his tummy.
-Amazing head control.
-Stopped taking the pacifier.  He doesn't show signs of getting addicted to his fingers so I am not too worried yet.
-It's interesting to see what scares him.  He will be completely fine after many loud noises and then get completely historically after daddy coughs loudly, or I yelp in shock, or there is a scream on the television (this one actually woke him up out of his slumber).

Aquarium Visit

We visited the aquarium in Waikiki as part of our ongoing 4 year anniversary celebration.  I am sure people were wondering why we thought a 4 month old would find the aquarium interesting, but no the visit was for us, not him.  Out of a 5, I would rate the aquarium a 3.  I enjoyed it but, as hard as I tried not to, I couldn't stop myself from comparing it to the awesome aquariums we have been to on the East Coast.  It is so much smaller.  If we had paid full price it would not have been worth it.  But at the discounted price, I thought it was worth it and would do it all over again, and probably will sometime in the future.  Despite not completing all of it, I did enjoy how they offered a free hand held audio tour of the aquarium.  I haven't been to an aquarium yet that offers that and it gets so tedious reading all of the signs.

Three Month Update

Stats will come next month as we have our next check up then.  For now here are some general updates on my little man:

-Still eats often at night and still adjusting to his crib.  He has a problem with sticking his limbs out of the crib.
-Enjoys the hot tub.
-Stood in the sand at the beach without crying.  Hopefully he continues to adjust.
-Survived 5-6 hours worth of hiking in two days without much of a problem.
-Has begun rolling over onto his stomach and of course he can't roll back over so he gets upset.
-Loves to talk.
-Enjoys it when we sing to him.
-Doesn't yet care about toys but I think that will change shortly.
-Still loves to sleep on me.
-He does fine with other people and seems to actually enjoy them.
-He was blessed this past Sunday and did perfect during it.
-Sporting a major double chin.

Here are a few more pictures:

Made friends with some Japanese girls. 

Blessing day!
