Emmett: 4 Months
Weight: 13 lbs 7.6 oz (22nd percentile)
Height: 25 inches (73rd percentile)
Head Circumference: 17 inches (75th percentile)
Milestones: Emmett laughed for the first time a few weeks ago (of course, it was at his daddy). He also rolled over for the first time the other day! He loves grabbing toys and his paci. Emmett is also a talker! There are times where he will talk, gurgle, coo, and squeal for about 10 minutes. It's the best, sweetest sound in the world. Emmett also grabs his feet and folds his hands together (a lot).
Sleep: We're still waking up 2-3 times a night for feedings, but I honestly don't mind. You might remember that he was having issues with weight gain last month, so the fact that he is getting nutrition makes me not feel any frustration about waking up often. I keep telling myself that I can sleep when I'm dead. ;)
Favorite Things: Playing on a mat or bouncy chair, standing up to see the world, putting his hands in mama's mouth, chewing on his fist, bath time, lights, music, and FaceTime-ing with his family.
Health: We found out that little E has silent reflux and he is either lactose intolerant or milk protein intolerant. Either way, that means that mama has cut out most dairy out of her diet (goodbye, ice cream and cheese...). He started gaining weight once we figured that out, so we're all happy about that! He got his four month shots yesterday and had a 103-degree fever, which was so sad for mama and daddy. But he's already feeling better now!
Feeding: Emmett still eats 2-3 times at night. We supplement with 1-2 soy formula bottles every day. We've added a teaspoon of rice cereal in some bottles, and he doesn't really seem to know the difference. He usually eats about 4-6 oz per feeding!
