four months

my baby boy is officially four months old. this really occurred on friday, but today was his check-up.

we went to the doctor this morning.

these were his specs at two months:
  • 13 lbs 1 oz
  • 22 in
  • 16 1/2 in head

these were his specs today...four months:

  • 16 lbs 12 oz
  • 25 1/2 in
  • 17 1/2 in head! in two months, he's gained almost 4 pounds and 3 1/2 inches! how does this happen?!?!

the poor guy also got three shots and some oral vaccine.

you'd think he would sleep the day away.

so not the case.

his appointment was at 11. up until now, he's slept a total of ten minutes.

i put him in his crib about ten minutes ago. he cried for about two and is now soundly sleeping...for now, anyway.

**as i was typing that last sentence, i decided to go check on him...just to be sure he was actually sleeping and not just lying in his bed completely quiet.

this is what i found.

at four months, he is able to roll over from front to back, but this is as far as he can get from back to front. this would be the reason he was crying.

poor baby just gave up and fell asleep like this.

i now feel like a horrible mom.

of course, i didn't dare move him...i only covered him with a blanket...not before i took the picture though.

i can't believe he's already four months old.

the crazier thing would be that next month, my first born will be three years old!

we won't talk about that.
