4 Months

Mr Zach-man turned 4 months this week!

At 4 months, Zach:

-weighs 16 lbs, 10 oz.
-is 25.2" tall
-16.7" head size (which is only 1 inch smaller than Emily's head currently is)
-is a MUCH happier baby, and smiles and laughs frequently, and cries less frequently (hallelujah!)
-loves his dangling toys
-likes stroller rides
-is still struggling with sleeping. In fact, I will confess, I started putting him in the basement for part of the night so the rest of us could actually get some sleep. The first time he wakes up in the night (usually around 1-2) I feed him and then move him downstairs until at least 6. Call me a horrible mother, but he does not need to eat 4 times a night anymore, and at least I am better rested and he is learning to go back to sleep on his own.
-loves to watch his big sister
-still spits up a TON!
-is not liking his bottle anymore
-is starting to like his baths

Anyway, I'm so glad he is happier and more comfortable these days. Although this picture doesn't illustrate was his first taste of rice cereal! Apparently, he didn't like it too well.

I would have done the same thing with moving him to the basement during the night. GOOD JOB!!!! Kenzie hated rice cereal at first but loved oatmeal just a thought. he is so cute!!

I'm all for mom being able to get sleep, especially when you know they can sleep through the night without eating anymore. Hope he learns to self-soothe soon!

Time fly's...can't believe he is already 4months! I am not looking forward to rice cereal at all!
