The World of a 4 month old
Our little John David, 4 months old!
…and big boy, sitting up shot
He has a dimple in each cheek, and I just love that!
Welcome to the world of a 4 month old!
When Aunt Amy and Uncle Greg visited, Wesley was 4 months old, and he seemed so big to me…..compared to our 4 week old!! That’s so funny because now that I’m at the four month mark too, it still seems so small.

Of course, really there’s nothing small about this chubby bub baby! And we like him that way!
I can never remember what the expected milestones are for each age, so I took a moment to look up what he “should be” doing:
*double birth weight……8.1 lb then and 17 now. Okay, we’re good!
*hands grabbing anything in reach……..He pulls out a handful of my hair a day, so I think we’re covered…
*kicking and pushing themselves with their feet…….Oh yes, Every morning I find him completely sideways in the crib.
*sleeping through the night……..thank goodness!
*2 naps……we’re doing 3 mini naps, and it’s killing me. I need to switch to 2 long ones. Aunt Amy, do you remember your routine at this age? I figure you probably have it written down somewhere if I know you….I could use some help here.
*tracking objects with eyes and head…..check
*changing eye color……yep. He has baby blues like the rest of us, and he’s starting to get comments on them.
*communication with cries, coos, giggles, etc……….check
All expectations fulfilled……marching onward! ; )
I found a few photos of our other boys at 4 months just for some comparison fun! Want to guess which is which???
7. This one is very obvious, but weren’t they sweet together?
They all look so much the same, right???
