Logen is 4 months old today! I can't believe it!!!
He had his four month Dr. appointment today and he is continuing to grow like a weed.
Height:27.5 inches long
Weight: 17lbs and 15oz
He is doing great and meeting all of his milestones for his age and more! He is now rolling over both belly to back and back to belly. He is also trying to sit on his own (see below).
As far as Logen's eating patterns, he is still nursing almost exclusively. If we are out of the house, it's usually easier to give him a bottle of formula or sometimes if I just need a break and Steve feeds him, he'll get a formula bottle. He usually gets maybe one or two formula bottles a week. He is, however, drinking 6oz when he does drink a bottle. We asked his doctor about starting foods (we started Page on cereal at 4 months and baby food at 6months). Dr. Ellis said that if he starts acting like he's not getting full from nursing or the bottle, then to start him on cereal, but otherwise to wait until 6 months and start him on both cereal and baby food. Cool! Saves us a little more money! :) And clearly he's not missing too many meals! LOL
Sleeping... well, honestly it depends on the night. He's not super consistent, yet. He usually wakes up around 5:30 or 6 and comes into bed with me to sleep for another hour or half hour until I get up. Then he'll take a little cat nap in the morning sometime around 8:30 or 9 for about half an hour to an hour (depending on how loud the kids are). Then he'll nap when the daycare kids nap, usually from 1ish until about 3 and then another quick hour long (or so) nap in the evening from about 5-6. We eat dinner, give the kids baths, put Page to sleep around 7:30and then it's Logen's turn. He's usually asleep by 8. He usually will sleep until at least 2 or 3, sometimes 4 (8 hours - I'll take it). We are still swaddling him because on the couple times when we've tried it without (last night for example) he is up every 2 hours!!
Logen is doing great and we can't believe he's already 4 months! Where is the time going? He is one of the greatest things to ever happen to us and the other greatest thing loves him SO much!! Page and Logen are best friends. I know it probably won't stay that way, but a mom can wish, right?
He can sit like this for a minute or two.. but then either falls to the side, or...
Tuesday was Steve's birthday. He's not a huge fan of birthdays, so he "gave" his birthday to Page and Logen. So, after they all opened their presents (it was stuff I already had for them) and we enjoyed some yummy ice cream cake, we needed to take a picture.
This is a picture of the birthday people! They were all some variation of the Magic Number 3!!!
Steve - 33 years old
Page - 3 years old
Logen - 3 months old
This is only the case until Wednesday when our little guy turns 4 months!!!
I am the happiest wife and mother of a wonderful daughter and son!! My life is never boring. We moved to AZ from IL in 2006. We love the weather and don't miss snow at all, however we do miss our family and friends!
