4 Months Have Come and Gone

It only seems like it was yesterday that I was holding Samuel for the first time.  I was busy admiring how tiny he was the day he was born.  His little hands were so strong and yet so fragile in mine.  Just last week, he passed the 4 month mark, and he continues to fascinate me. 

In his 4th month, Samuel:
Weighed 14 lbs and 6.5 oz. (40th percentile)
Was 23 and 3/4 inches long. (15th percentile)
Had his shots and balled...  like a baby.
Is wearing 3-6 month clothes.
Is in size 2 diapers.
Has outgrown his 0-6 month socks.
Smiles all of the time.
Loves to snuggle.
Laughs out loud.
Makes lots of noises and little "talks."
Rolled over from his belly to back.
Working on rolling from back to belly.
Held his bottle on his own.
Made his first trip to Cracker Barrel.
Plays with his hands.
Reaches for things.
Sucks on his fingers.
Still takes a pacifier.  Specifically, Avent or MAMs only.
Sleeps through the night. 
Goes to bed at 9:30 p.m.
Wakes around midnight to feed.
Wakes around 6 a.m. then again for good at 9:00.
Rarely cries.
Has a bright red birthmark on one of his fingers.
(Everyone always asks what it is.)

Samuel also:

is completely loved by his big brother.

always has his legs crossed at the ankles.

likes to watch t.v. with Daddy.

loves being loved on by Kam.

oh, and Kenz.

is uncertain about Daniel's hugs.

sure does like his Grandpa.

can hold his bottle by himself.

cracks up when being tickled.

is very serious about toys. 
He examines everything.

has the sweetest smile you will ever see.
rocks out his mohawk.
totally not on purpose...
He's losing his hair.

starting to sit up in the Bumbo.
likes being upright.
had his 4 month well and did very well.

holds himself up.
Here, he is waiting on his shots.
