Alex at 4 months

Today we had Alex's four month appointment. How is it possible that he is already four months? And do I ask that every month? Probably.
Our little man weighs in at 14 lbs 7 ozs and is 24 1/2 inches long. This puts him at the 30th percentile for weight and the 25th percentile for height. His head is in the 70th percentile-big head to hold all those brains! He's doing great and the doctor answered ALL my questions ( I always ask a ton) and gave us some advice regarding the sleep situation. The boy is a dream come true-so easy going, he is literally content just hanging out in his swing, bumbo or bouncer for long periods of time. He only cries when he needs something and he smiles at us most the day. He's just a happy kid. The sleeping thing though-oh boy. Hopefully we'll get this down soon so mommy and daddy can get some uninterrupted rest!

We also started feeding Alex rice cereal and oatmeal about a week and a half ago. He is a big fan of eating and seems to enjoy his food. I am looking forward to introducing him to veggies and fruits here soon. I am going granola and plan on making all his baby food. I know huh? So unlike me. I love the idea of feeding my son "real food" while saving money.

Here's a video of Alex eating his rice cereal-you might notice he's a bit passionate about his food....

He's doing so good Stacy!!!! That's the way Hayden was with his hand...it used to frustrate me so bad! Made such a mess! I'm so glad he's doing so well too! Fabulous site to recommend for making your own baby food if you're interested...www.wholesomebabyfood.com. You may have already visited that site though. Adorable as always and I LOVE Sydney's commentary in the background! She's such a good big sister!
