Because guess who completely let this slip by? It's not like I forgot about it. I kept remembering and then getting way too involved with other things and pushing this off to the back burner and the next thing I knew, he'd turned 5 months and it was too late to do it (and no, I haven't yet done it for 5 months... ugh).
Anyway, at Matthew's 4 month check up he weighed 14 lbs, 12 oz (which put him in the 48th percentile), he was 25" long (55th percentile) and his head was 42 cm (43rd percentile).
I kept thinking (and still do think) that he's SO BIG.
And then I went back on the old blog here and looked up Ben's 4 month stats.
Ben was 14 lbs, 6.3 oz (which was, oddly, the 53rd percentile) and 25.5" long (which was the 72nd percentile). So funny how a few ounces or a half an inch can make such a huge difference on the growth chart...
Doctor gave the okay to start rice cereal but we decided to wait for now (I've actually started him on solids but I'll save that for the 5 month update I'll get around to posting some time next February, ha ha).
- watching Ben
- smiling at everything
- being cuddled
- the car seat, still
- being swaddled
- tummy time
He can roll from back to tummy and back again but he doesn't do it often.
And that's it!
