(Look how big the sticker is on him in this picture!!)
You can see in this picture where I had to clean spit up off of him in the middle of the photo shoot.
Very typical for Jayden lately.
Jayden turned 4 months old on January 11.
He had his doctor appointment Thursday night and he now weighs 12 lbs, 8 oz and is 24 1/2 inches long.
The biggest thing that happened this past month is that Jayden now plays with toys!!
He loves the toy train at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
He loves his seahorse.
He loves books.
Of course his hands in his mouth are still a big hit.
He sleeps well at night. We still swaddle him. Is 4 months old for still swaddling? Probably. It just works so well!! We still haven't moved him into his nursery. He sleeps in the bassinet part of the pack-n-play (one of the benefits of him being on the small side) right next to my side of the bed. We're saving up money right now to buy a video baby monitor. Hopefully once we get that set up, I will feel more comfortable moving him upstairs to his nursery.
He stopped rolling over. He hasn't done it in a couple weeks. His newest thing is pulling himself forward when he is on the floor on his stomach. He does it if the older kids are playing on the floor too and he wants to get closer to them. It's only a few inches total but it still surprised me the first time I noticed he had moved forward.
If he is in a silly mood, he is ticklish on his sides and under his arms. If you catch him just at the right time and tickle him under his right arm, he will giggle. It's rare, but currently my favorite sound in the world.
We tried putting him into his "Johnny Jump Up" that hangs in the doorway, but he needs to do some more growing before he can really use it. Although we had a good laugh watching him hang there. And he seemed to enjoy it because he could watch us do things in the kitchen.
He got a high chair for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa and he does well with sitting in it, but we will not be starting any food for at least another month.
Overall, he is a happy, healthy 4 month old baby boy and we love him to pieces.
