Four Months

We had our 4 month appointment a week early and little man is growing and growing!  Life is crazy as usual and we are still working on getting the hang of things!  Here is our 4 month update:


Stats: Levi is 17 lb 1 oz (80%) , 24.75 inchess tall (50%), and his head is also in the 50th percentile. What can I say, my son is built like a Greek god. He is wearing 6-9 month clothing and 9 month clothing and has the chunkiest thighs ever.

Favorite Things to Do: Levi is a happy little guy and loves smiling at us. He thinks mama and papa are pretty funny and smiles any time we smile back at him. He has a grunt of a laugh when we pretend to scare him by saying 'boo' and will sometimes chuckle.  He is still a big fan of his skip hop playmat and loves his girlfriend Sophia the Giraffe.  He still loves taking walks with us and loves looking around at the world. Now that he is at daycare with grandma Tania, he loves looking around and playing with the older kids.

Highlights: Levi started daycare at Grandma's house (my mom). He is adjusting beautifully and seems to love it there. Mama is getting used to being away from Levi and I may or may not have had a meltdown.  For now, I need to be working and I'm glad he has a safe place to stay all day.

Eating and Sleeping: Levi has made big strides in the eating and sleeping department. He takes a bottle at daycare with no problem.  This was my greatest worry and fear going into daycare and I'm so glad he eats like a champ.  I now have the great joy of pumping at work, which I hate with a passion, but I'm determined to continue to breastfeed for as long as I can.  Levi also moved to his bed about 2 weeks before he turned 4 months and has done well.  I am a little jumpy with the baby monitor, but he does a great job.  I will not mess with the sleeping gods, but sleep has been going fairly well for us.

Nicknames: Boo boo, honey, Levchik, Mishka

Our sweet, sweet boy- we love you so much! Every month I say 'this is my favorite age' and I think it's because you make life better and better.  Thank you for making me stop and enjoy each moment with you and for providing laughs every single day.
