Jacob at 4 months



Little Jacob is 4 months old! Time has flown by. Jacob is still a pretty easy going guy and is happy most of the time. He usually sleeps well for naps and at night time (11-12 hours-yippy!) although he gets pretty upset when I swaddle him because he knows that means play time is over for now. He is one social little guy!
Jacob's biggest fan used to be mommy and only mommy but now his dad and big brother are joining the fan club. He smiles like crazy at joshua. It is almost impossible to feed Jacob with Joshua around.
Jacob continues to be a very big boy although his growth has slowed down a bit. He is bit chubby but not nearly as chubby as joshua was at this age (joshua was 1-2 pounds bigger). Jacob is more big all round. He looks like a toddler. A toddler that can barely hold his head! Ha! When I took him in for his 4 month appointment the nurse had to double check that he was really there for his 4 month appointment. She couldn't believe how big he was.
This age is so much fun for me. He is beginning to roll over (although he can only do it on the bed, not on the floor) and is getting really good with his hands. Everything goes in his mouth of course! Where else?! He smiles and laughs at everything. So fun!
He hasn't had any solids yet and probably won't until at least 6 months old. It's amazing that my milk is all that is keeping this baby going!


4 MONTH STATS:
Weight: 16 lb 15oz (81%tile)
Length: 26.5 in (90%tile)
Head Circumference: 17.3 in (84%tile)

For reference, here he is at 2 weeks and 2 months.

I love those big blue eyes! He is a good looking little kid. Hopefully we'll get to meet him this Christmas sometime!
