Tanner David: 4 Month Update

I'm slowly, very slowly, catching up here. :)

Weight: 16 pounds 10 ounces (71%)

Length: 27.25 inches (99%)

Head circumference: 43 cm (85%)

Physical milestones:  This month, my littlest guy started rolling from back to belly.  He's a big fan of tummy time so not much rolling the opposite way, he prefers to be playing on his belly.  He has definitely discovered his hands and his hands have found his mouth :). Just like pretty much everything else - straight to the mouth. 

Eating/Sleeping:  We are still on our normal every 3-4 hour eating schedule.  Tanner doesn't seem to be too interested in eating solids.  I started some solids with the other two kids around 4-5 months.  I specifically remember Brody really being interested when we were eating.  Tanner on the other hand, not much interest.  Plus, he seems a bit behind in regards to milestones compared to Kayla and Brody.  So we held of solids for longer.  Sleeping is pretty good, but started to get a bit worse around Tanner's four month birthday.  He actually developed what they call Baby Bronchitis as well as a double ear infection (which I thought may be the case based on his slight increased crankiness lying down - I mean really slight).  So sleeping is still a crap shoot, a couple nights of 3-4 wake ups which was really abnormal for Tanner, but overall still 2 times a night.   

Tanner is like an angel baby.  He had a double ear infection and bronchiolitis and is still the smiley-est happiest kiddo.  He's a joy to be around really for everyone around him.  And he's so content just playing on his tummy and watching his brother and sister be silly.  I feel so blessed.  

Lots of drool nowadays

Coughing is a norm now...

Mid sentence. :)

This is how I roll:

Tanner David: 3 Month Update

Dude, I am forever going to be behind right?  That's just how it works with three?  I've started scheduling out my "to-do" list in my planner so I'm going to try to blog at least once a week (for real this time).  Anyways, here is what I can remember from 3 months ago!

Weight: Probably around 15 pounds or so but not really sure.

Length: Not a clue

Head circumference: No idea

Physical milestones:  Tanner rolled over once from his belly to his back on the floor next to the dinner table the day after his 3 month birthday.  Therefore, he is getting pretty good at lifting his head and shoulders in prone (on his belly non PT people). :) He also founds his hands and realized he can touch them with each other this month. 

Eating/Sleeping:  Sticking to our same 7, 10, 1, 4, 7 schedule during the day pretty much (give or take 30-45 minutes here and there).  Nighttime got down to about 1-2 feedings per night depending on the night.  They are never at the same time.  It's really a crap shoot.  The kid is still a fabulous eater, just like his big bro.  He is liking the pacifier more and still mostly falling asleep for naps and nighttime on his own.  

This kid is really the most happy baby.  He is so easy to be around and Kayla and Brody just LOOOOVE him.  Still waking up at night 1-2 times but doesn't bother me because he goes right back to sleep and I get to lay with him a little bit and get some mommy snuggles in.  He adores his brother and sister.  Just like everyone else, Brody makes him giggle and he lights up when he sees Kayla come into the room.  He is so content and will likely be a little slower with the milestones since Brody and Kayla do everything for him!  I'm willing time to slooooooooow down!
