Oh Luke, you're growing up so fast already! Over the weekend you turned 4 months! You are more alert and social this month than you were last. When someone talks to you you study their face for a moment before giving them a full on smile. You love being in your jumperoo, and we can't believe you're already playing a bit. You enjoy standing on my lap or facing outward when we're hanging out. It is amazing to me how much a little person can change in just a couple months!
Stats: You weigh 15lbs 7.4oz (47th percentile) and are 26 inches long (82nd percentile), your head is 43.3 cm (89th percentile). You wear 3-6 month, and some 6 month and 6-9 month clothes and size 2 diapers.
Eating: I'm still nursing you on demand, whenever you make the mouth movements that show you're hungry. We can't wait for you to eat solid food because you're always interested in what we're eating!
Sleep: You are now sleeping in your own room in the big crib! You have been having a hard time staying asleep during the night so we thought moving you into your own room might make it easier for you, no such luck there. You have been waking up 3-5 times a night, which is rough on both of us. I think it might be because you learned to roll over a couple weeks ago, and you're practicing in your sleep. Hoping you return to being a good sleeper soon.
Health: All is well in the health department! You have a little stuffy nose right now, but that is par for the course when you have a big brother around. You're still very drooly and your hands are your favorite toy to chew on.
Development: You are full on rolling! Though you only roll to your left! You coo and squeal and chat to yourself or whoever is talking to you.
Likes: Talking and being talked to. Being sung to. Eating your hands. Nursing. Your brother! And you're totally drawn to screens of all kinds, which we do not let you watch, although you try to crane your neck around to sneak a peek.
Dislikes: I can't really think of anything you really dislike. You definitely don't like shots, but who does?
And because I always like to compare pictures of my boys at the same age I thought I'd share a side-by-side of Luke and Owen at the same age, and in the same chair. They look so much alike to me, only with different coloring. Size wise they were about the same weight, but Luke is 1/2 an inch longer.
