Micah is 4 Months Old!

(sorry-Daddy took this pic right before bed on your 4 month birthday-but you love getting in your sleepsack and mittens to keep your hands warm, haha)

Micah! You turned 4 months old on your sister's 4th birthday a few weeks ago! You are getting more fun each day-you've officially left the "lay around like a blob and sleep all day" stage. You would much rather be playing with something and are doing a great job of learning how to entertain yourself. You've had a few firsts over this past month-playing in an exersaucer for the first time...

and playing in the johnny jump-up for the first time. Although you didn't really know what to do. You just sat there. Mommy had to bounce you for you.
Suddenly you decided you were done playing.
You're such a good sport with your brother and sister. Your brother thinks its ok to just swat at you whenever-I can see some good wrestling matches coming up in a few years. Your sister thinks it's ok to use you as her own live babydoll. Or, her prince.

You laugh at your brother and sister constantly. They're hilarious, apparently. I love seeing your face light up whenever they talk to you.

You are a momma's boy and can be picky about who holds you. You looove to be held (what baby doesn't?) but like to just lay down on the floor and play some too. You're doing better at tummy time but not too much before you get upset.
You get bent out of shape easily if you get too tired. You will fall asleep instantly though with your magic blanket and paci. You have to have your blanket covering you, all the way up to your neck, with your paci in and rocking-and you're out. You are such a sweet snuggler.
People (even strangers) can't resist touching your cheeks. They also can't get over how big you are for a 4 month old. You are in 6 and 6-9 month clothes and size 2 diapers. You had your 4 month check up and weighed in at 17 lbs. 9 oz. (90%) and you were 25 1/4 in. long (59%).  You nurse every 3 hours and sleep 11-12 hours straight through the night. You take several catnaps during the day and are on a strict routine of eat, play, sleep, repeat.

You're getting so big and so is your noise. You can be as loud as the others if you want. In fact, we say that you are our baby velociraptor from Jurassic Park-that's exactly how you sound when you squeal loudly. You like to make yourself known and do a good job at it. I love getting to know your little personality more and more each day. I can't wait for all the fun we're going to have in the months to come!
