He Rolls and has Rolls too!

The Baby had his 4 month check up- and the verdict is in- He is PERFECT!

Weight:15# 9oz. 67th percentile
Height: 26” 89th percentile
Head Circumference: 16.14” 26th percentile – that is right, he is humble, no big head here!

Some of the things that make the Baby so Perfect-

He can roll over from back to tummy and has even started to roll from tummy to back- though he only seems to do this second type of rolling once or twice a day and usually when no one is looking.

He can hold his shoulders and head high off the ground while on his stomach

He Smiles and Giggles

He has reaches out for toys

He grabs at fingers and hanging toys and holds on tight
He sings! He doesn’t seem to like lots of syllables, no dadadada momomomo bububu it is more like aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa brrrrrrr aaaaaaaaaaaaa

He can turn his slobber into really frothy slobber by buzzing his lips

He goes down for naps with out crying 75-80% of the time

He eats 6-7 oz ever 4 hours and because of this fact, the doctor said he could start eating Solid Food. (If you are wondering “What exactly constitutes Solid Food?” and you know who you are- for now it is rice cereal- Pictures will be coming as we attempt to eat solid food)

He can stiffen his legs and loves to stand with help

He has such an amazing case of eczema that he gets to go to the Dermatologist!

Hurray for the Babay! (it rhymes)

Great blog Kate! I am so happy to see my nephew! The lack of sleep is a killer, huh?! Good for you for taking care of yourself. Mommies are so much happier after a little rest. You're doing great!

Kate!! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I didn't know that you were a blogger too. Your baby is ADORABLE! I want to just eat him! Just kidding.

I'm glad to see that you're doing so well and I love your attitude on life. I'm sure life will bring you many days of happiness.
