Emsley, this is what you are like at 4 months old:
~ You weigh 12.9 pounds (18th percentile) and you measure 23 inches long (2nd percentile).
~ You are our biggest, chunkiest baby and people often comment about your rolls. :) We love that you are a healthy, rolly baby. :)
~ You are now wearing size 2 diapers (only 2 sizes smaller than Ethan), and size 3-6 months in clothes.
~ You like your sleep and can't seem to get enough of it. :) Being the 3rd child means your siblings often wake you up or you have to wake up due to our busy schedules and having to take you here and there.
~ You have established somewhat of a sleeping routine. You are now sleeping 10-11 hours at night in the bassinet! YAY!! You usually go to bed between 8:00 and 9:00 PM. You like to take about 2 long naps during the day. Usually you like to nap in the morning and early afternoon. I think you sleep a total of 16 hours in a 24 hour period still.
~ When you are well fed and rested you are a very happy and easy baby. You love when people (especially your family) get close to your face and talk to you. You will always smile back and coo, blow raspberries and "talk" right back. You're talking a lot these days.
~ You have started teething and you are drooling a lot! You also like to blow bubbles a lot too.
~ You have started self soothing by sucking on your fingers and hands, but perhaps that's just the teething.
~ You hold your head and neck up on your own very well now.
~ You like to sit up and you often pull yourself forward from a reclined position to a sitting straight up position.
~ You most like to be in the bouncy seat or on the floor talking with your family. You seem to have outgrown the swing. We've tried the bumbo a few times and you seem to be undecided about it. You like it for short periods of time.
~ Emsley we all love you dearly and we're loving watching you grow! I'm excited to see more of your personality and talents as you get older.
