4 Month Milestones

Everett will be 4 months tomorrow! He received his 4 month check-up and shots today. He is one tough little man. He received 2 shots today. He didn't even cry with the first shot but the 2nd one definitely got him crying. He cried that soundless cry that I hate. He never cries like that so I know he's pretty upset to do that. I was pretty proud of him though. No cry or fuss whatsoever afterwards.

He weighed in at 14 lbs and 3 oz putting him in the 35 percentile.

He measured in at 25 inches long putting him in the 63 percentile.

Head circumference was 16 and 1/4 inches.

I was so thankful to have Daddy along with us this time. We had to wait almost an hour and a half for him to get in to see the doctor though, which was a little upsetting considering our appointment was schedule for 9:45am and we did not get in til 11:15am. I know waiting is just something that should be expected in any doctor's office but I've never had to wait that long. I'm just thankful that everything went okay and he's a healthy baby boy.

All smiles shortly before getting his shots

Getting a good feed afterwards

At 4 months now, Everett:

-loves standing; which he has loved doing since he was 2 months old
-doesn't suck his thumb but rather loves trying to stick his whole fist in his mouth
-can sit up unassisted
-can hold his head up while on his tummy without the bobble-head
-hates laying down and fusses until he is sat up
-is sleeping up to 9 hours through the night
-smiles and laughs a lot
-feeds 3-5 oz every 2.5 to 4 hours. He's not much of an eater and I struggle to get him to eat most of the time
-coos and talks A LOT!
-naps every 1-2 hours after each feed and will go down with no fuss at all
-still sleeps very well in his crib which he has been doing since day 1

I feel so blessed to have such a happy, easy-going baby!
