Logan is four months old! Yes, I can believe it. March feels like forever ago, and I don’t know where April and May have gone. Also can’t believe it’s the middle of July and I go back to work in a month.
It is true that babies get more fun as they grow. New this month are the sounds and expressions he is making. We get the cutest squeals and oohs and goos and ohhs along with guh. Right on July 4, Logan learned to roll over. He was working so hard to go from back to front, and then he did it. It was the cutest. He has gone the other way, but I don’t think he has figured out that when he gets stuck on his belly, he knows how to roll back. Right now he just starts crying out of frustration.
He is also using his hands a lot more. He holds toys, grasps loveys, blankets and burp cloths, and my hair and pulls hard. He is more alert everyday and is enjoying play more. We have some new toys for him to look at and touch, and he still loves his play mat, looking at his mobile in his crib, and anything musical. He can sit in the Bumbo for a few minutes, and also the Jumperoo with some stabilization. Both are new this month. Done are the bouncy seat and swing. He wants to move!
He is also becoming a big boy, literally. He weighs 16 pounds, double his birth weight. I don’t know his length yet, but it is long. It is getting hard to hold him for long periods, like how he likes to be rocked to sleep. I’ll get back to our changing sleep habits another day.
He also transitioned to all sleeping in the crib last month, no more swing or bouncy for naps. And also this month was our first virus, which was no fun.
We also transitioned to all formula in the last month, which has made his feedings more predictable and my life a little more free and enjoyable.
In the next month, he will take two trips by plane, and probably start trying some solid foods like oatmeal. At his rate, he will also be walking and talking and running the place soon!
