Max 4 months

Our big boy is 4 months!! It makes me sad that a quarter of the year has already passed.  Max is growing so fast!

Max, you are eating 7 ounces 5-6 times a day.  You tried cereal for the first time last night and was not a fan!  We will try again in a few days.  I don't think you need it, so I'm in no rush!

Sleep:  You have been sleeping through the night for about 3 weeks now!  They usually have their last bottle around 7:30, have a bath then go to bed.  We have had about five times where they have slept til six, but we average about 5:30.  If Claire didn't wake up, he would probably sleep later!
You are taking great naps!  Your morning nap is the longest, but you average 1.5/2 hrs per nap!

You love bath time now!  The pool opens this weekend and I can't wait to take you and see how you do!

Clothes:  Our big boy can wear 6-9 months in most everything.  Some of his 6 mo shorts are to big, but the 3 mo are to small.  He is wearing a size 2 diaper

I think you are weighing 16 lbs.  I got on the scale with you last week and you were 15 lbs.

You are still not a fan of tummy time, but we still do it every day.  You usually keep your head down, but you can sit up in the bumbo seat.

Max is a mama's boy!!  I love it.  You are such a great snuggler.

You are cuter than ever! Your hair line is gone and you are all blonde!  You even have some spikes up top!!  You smile all the time and even laugh every now and then.
You follow voices and objects - you always know where Mommy is!

Our daytime routine is usually a circuit of toys!  In the morning you and Claire play on your mat, then later after your next nap you have some tummy time and will sit in your bumbo. You are getting better at grasping toys.   We try to take a walk every day.  It is starting to get hot so we are going to have to change our "circuit" around.

I'm more comfortable taking you and Claire out by myself.  Recently I took both of you to the grocery store and target.  You did great!

You went to Grandpa and Grandma Fredrick's house in Atlanta for the first time.  You did so good, especially since you didn't get all your naps in!  Everyone talked about how cute you were!  (still looking like daddy)  You are very loved!!  We are going back to Atl in July and I know you will have a great time!

We love you!
