Campbell | 4 Months

Weight: 13ish pounds according to our scale at home. We'll know his exact weight at his doctors appointment next week!

Height: 24 inches long

Sleep: Campbell sleeps so great at night! All of that hard work of getting him on a schedule has definitely paid off. Our little peanut snoozes hard for 11 hours straight!! His sleep schedule is typically between 8:30-7:30. During the day Campbell takes 3 naps that last, on average, around 2 hours.
Eat: Campbell now eats 5 times a day. Two of his meals include solids--lunch and dinner. For lunch he has oatmeal then fruit and for dinner he has oatmeal then a vegetable. I mix the oatmeal with expressed milk to make sure he's getting extra vitamins and protein. The rest of the time he nurses. I'm excited I've made it to four months with breastfeeding. My goal at the beginning was to go 6 months but since it's been going so great, I'm going to try to make it a year. I hope I can do it!

Clothes: Campbell is still in 0-3 month clothes and I don't see him growing out of them any time soon. I love him in little rompers and one pieces. Those are my favorite! When we're hanging out at home he wears a lot of Kickee Pants Coveralls and Gap t-shirts with sweatpants or shorts.
Diapers: Still in size 1 Pampers.

Likes: Bath time, when we pretend like we're eating him (he thinks that's the most hilarious thing ever), watching Mickey on the ipad, going for walks outside, laying on his activity mat, when Mommy sings to him (melts my heart), his pacifier, sitting and bouncing in his bouncy chair, when we do "airplane" with him.

Dislikes: Loud, startling noises, taking naps, avocado.
Milestones: Campbell just recently began holding toys and sticking them in his mouth. He started solids this month and loves them! Scott and I both agree he seems like a happier and more content baby since he started his solids. Campbell started sleeping really great this month. (Can I get an amen!) He bears weight on his legs, and "talks" constantly. He loves to splash and kick when he takes his baths which ends up getting me so wet by the time we're finished. Campbell also started laughing this month which is the sweetest sound in the world! Campbell's hands are constantly in his mouth and just within the last week he's started sucking his thumb (trying to put a stop to that). Campbell has been drooling a lot which I think is the result of his teeth making their way up through his gums. Campbell started sleeping at night without his swaddle but he still sleeps in his swaddle for naps. I can carry Campbell on my hip now which is just so crazy! When we hold Campbell's hands, he can pull himself up (with our help) from a laying to a sitting position. Every week he does something new and it's so fun!

Month Four: Month four has been such a great month! Life with Campbell is easy and fun! We've got a great little routine and system down these days. It feels like we've finally got this baby/parenting stuff all figured out! much as one can get it figured out anyway.
All About Campbell: Campbell is such a sweetheart! He loves his Mommy and Daddy so much. He is soaking in the world and it's so precious to watch. Every month gets more and more fun with him. I can't wait to watch him grow and develop a little personality. He loves sitting in my lap and snuggling. I'm pretty sure I'm his favorite person :) but he loves his Daddy a whole lot too.
