Adam Jonathan: 4 Months

**Better late than never! I've had it written for a month and I just stink at getting the pictures into it...**

FOUR months buddy! If I remember correctly, this is when everything started moving super fast with Evelyn. It was like she was a baby that didn't do much but hang around and smile, to sitting up, rolling over, eating food, laughing, walking, running, going to college in a span of 2 minutes.

Don't go too fast though, okay? This past month has been fun and stressful. Let's get the stats out of the way first though. At your four month appointment you were 27 inches long (100%) and 16 lbs 12 oz (73%). Still a big boy! You currently fit nicely into 9 month clothes and don't show any signs of stopping.

You are still a bit on the fussy side, but your demeanor seems to be improving every week. You still love to be held and to look around. You also love to be outside, which is good because so does Evelyn!

Your sleep is definitely improving (although my day in the life post shows otherwise!) and you seem to be falling into a bit of a routine. You go to be sometime around 8 and usually wake sometime between midnight and 2 am. Then you'll be up again around 5 or 6 and if I'm lucky I'll get you back to bed for a little longer. Last week you had a day you slept until 8:30! You'll then take a morning nap about 1-2 hours after waking up and a nice afternoon nap. You usually seem to need a little catnap in the evening but it's harder to come by. We had to stop swaddling you last week because you started to consistently roll over. The first night or two were a little rough, but once you figured out that you can roll over onto your tummy and sleep you did great! Putting you to be has been much easier since doing that!

You've started to tripod a bit. I'm thinking you might sit up early like Evelyn did. You also found your feet! Evelyn never played with her feet, so this is a silly, exciting thing for me!

I love to watch you grow and change, but it's happening so much faster this time around. It's hard to believe you're closer to six months than farther away. Don't grow too fast on me, okay?
