4 Months Old


Harry is four months old today! I know, right? Here are his stats.

Weight: About 14 pounds
Height: Close to 26 inchees
Diaper Size: Size 2 Huggies (after trying all the different brands we have found that Huggies work best for us)
Clothing Size: He's in between three and six month clothes. Most of his three month sleepers are too small but all his three month onesies and pants still fit.
 Eating: 4-6 ounces of formula six times a day. Harry is currently drinking three different types of formula: Similac NeoSure (preemie formula), Similac Advance and Enfamil Newborn. Our transition off the NeoSure has been really smooth. We'll run out within the next week and will then switch back and forth between the Similac Advance and Enfamil Newborn. My OB's office gave me nine cans of the Enfamil, which is why we're using it. I was worried that feeding Enfamil might mess with his flora (a select group of wonderful ladies will understand that!) since the two formulas have different fat sources, but so far so good. When all our Enfamil is gone we'll switch to Similac Advance full time.

Every day I am amazed by my son. I love him to the moon and back, and then back again. I still don't know how we got so lucky with such an amazing kiddo. Everyday he is learning so much and brings both Ant and I so much joy.

He has developed a lot in the last month and is now grasping for objects. He loves playing with the hanging toys on his play mat, especially the ones that make the crinkly sound. He will also grab a toy that is either on his chest or next to him and bring it to his mouth. He loves his Sophie Giraffe toy and can hold her with both hands and chew on her neck. The other day he even held her while he napped! He also loves chewing on his Winkel.

Harry is so so so so so so so close to rolling over. Last night he tried rolling from back to tummy at least 20 times in a row. I am very surprised he's trying that way first considering he doesn't like tummy time much. When we put him on his tummy he does try to roll on to his back, but he's not as close to mastering that way yet.

I meant to write about taking Harry to another restaurant last week, but I forgot. Last Saturday we took him to Chili's with us. It was crowded and loud in the restaurant and Harry just soaked it all in. I was feeding Harry when our drinks were served and the waiter got a good chuckle after he saw me toast Harry's bottle :). Yesterday we were able to take Harry on a walk to Walgreens and he managed to stay awake the entire time, usually the vibrations on his stroller put him to sleep.

And Saturday will mark a big milestone for us, we're leaving Harry with a babysitter! I am super nervous about it, but also really excited since Ant and I are going to see Kelly Clarkson in concert. I think we're going to try a tapas place in Chicago we just found out about, too. Should be fun!
