Baby Update - Four Months Old

Our babies sure do grow up fast don't they? It's amazing how fast time passes the older you get. I'm going to blink and this little fella is going to be 18 and heading off to college (Texas A&M University to be specific)! I've definitely been slacking on my posts, he's kept me so busy! We actually turned 4 months old back on April 12th. Just a little behind, whoops!

The last time we checked in Peyton had just started daycare and I was getting use to being away from my little man. Well, a lot can change in a month and now I am thrilled to say I am now a stay at home mom, or a work from home mom, if you will. I'm definitely working! I am so happy that I am able to stay home with him during this time in his life. It was the hubby and I's goal to make this happen and we did!

Developmentally, I feel like Peyton isn't too far behind other babies his age (since he's 6 weeks preemie). At his 4 month appointment he weighed 14 lbs 8.5 oz and measured 25" long which are both in the 25th to 50th percentile. Then that little noggin of his puts him in the 75th to 85th percentile fro head circumference. I'd say that's pretty good for a preemie! I'm anxious to see how big he is in the coming months because I have a sneaking suspicion this kid it going to be big and tall like his daddy!

Month 4 Skills and Events:

+ Babbling ALL the time, starting to make his consonant sounds
+ Rolling from his tummy to back more often
+ Trying SO hard to roll from his back to tummy (yet to do so)
+ Blowing air
+ Tracking things in a fluid motion
+ Smiling ALL the time
+ Had his first BIG belly laugh (my fave!)
+ Grasping really well
+ Learned what tickling feels like and laughed when tickled
+ Sleeping through the night more often
+ Shaking toys
+ Loves standing!
+ Wants attention ALL the time
+ Sick for the first time :(

How cute is this little punkin? We'll be back in a few weeks!

  6. The author has discussed a very resourceful topic in times of the pandemic. We, as a nation, cannot keep our children out of schools forever. Hence a plan needs to be implemented where children can safely go to school without getting mass infected. However, it is not recommended for parents or children to go physically to the shops for book supplies. Hence there is a need for an online book shop such as KitaabNow.
