4 Months Old

Ryan is 4 months old!  I can't believe it.  Time has flown by.  He has really started packing on the weight.  He was just a little guy at his 2 month appointment and was in the 25th percentile for everything.  He went up to the 60th percentile in weight at today's appointment.  He is 16 pounds 2 oz and is 25.25 inches tall.  Interestingly, his head circumference is only in the 30th percentile.  Both Drew and Kayley were near the top of the chart in head circumference so Ryan clearly doesn't take after them. 

Ryan is a really happy baby now (I couldn't say that about him 2 months ago).  He smiles all the time and is turning into quite the little talker.  He generally likes tummy time.  He is still getting the hang of his jumperoo.  He doesn't quite get it yet, but enjoys sitting in there.  He loves his play gym.  He also loves to sit in his bumbo in front of the door to the backyard!  He even started liking his swing a little bit. 

If I could complain about anything, it would just be that he does not sleep through the night consistently.  Ahhh!!  He is a great napper and goes down with little, if any, fussing.  But, he has started waking up again at night.  At first it was clear he was hungry because he would wake up at random times and would down a 5 oz bottle in no time.  The last few nights we have realized he is waking up at the exact same time (3:50am) and isn't as hungry so we are thinking it has turned into a habit.  One we are trying to break!  I am not opposed to letting a baby cry it out...if his siblings weren't right next door!  It is a delicate balance of not going in and picking him up and doing enough to get him to quiet down so he doesn't wake Drew and Kayley. 

Here are a few pictures of Ryan from this weekend:

This swing isn't as bad as I thought!

The red light on my camera stops his smile every time

Look at those cheeks

We have been enjoying fall sickness at our house too.  Kayley started with it on Monday night.  She had a sore throat and threw up several times.  Drew was lucky enough to get it Friday and was sick all weekend with a sore throat, fever and vomiting.  And, lucky me, I woke up with a sore throat this morning.  I just hope Ryan doesn't get it!
