Bennett | 4 Months Old

Weight: Bennett had his 4 month appointment yesterday and he weighed 11 pounds, 9 ounces which puts him in the 1st percentile!

Height: 24.61 inches, 26%!
Sleep: Bennett sleeps hard for 12 straight hours every night! 7:00 PM-7:00 AM. He takes three naps a day.

Eat: I'm still exclusively breastfeeding and Bennett eats 5 times a day. He's getting faster and faster at eating. We're down to 5-6 minutes max!!

Clothes: All 0-3 month clothes. Kickee Pants are 0-3 months although we're probably ready to go to the next size. Size newborn Freshly Picked Moccs! A few newborn outfits still fit.
Diapers: Size 2 Pampers Swaddlers and Size 3 Pampers Baby Dry Overnight Diapers.

Likes: Smiling, baths, being outside, cuddling, watching big brother play.

Dislikes: Clothes going over his head. When he suddenly realizes he's super tired and ready for his nap.
Milestones: Bennett can bear weight on his legs now. He brings his hands together and it's sooo cute! Bennett coo's when you talk to him and reaches for his monkeys dangling over his bouncy chair. He stretched his sleep out to 12 straight hours and also dropped his swaddle. He likes to sleep on his side now that he's not swaddled.

Month Four: Bennett experienced his first sickness this month. My poor little guy got diagnosed with croup a few weeks ago. It was so sad but he handled it like a champ. He was a little fussy at times (which is SO unlike him) but he slept great all night. Thankfully it wasn't a very bad case and he recovered pretty quickly thanks to Vicks, the humidifier, and lots of Momma cuddles.
All About Bennett: Bennett is still just as sweet as ever! He's the smiliest baby and continues to be just as easy as can be.....and we're still just amazed by it! My little squirt makes me so happy thanks to his precious demeanor and I love for him to sit in my lap and cuddle any chance I get. I cannot believe Bennett has been with us for four months now. It has truly just flown by. I love my little angel and I feel like whenever I look back on this time, I'll always remember it as Bennett sitting in my lap while we watch Campbell play. It doesn't seem like much but it sure does make me happy!
