Happy 4 Months Cole!!

Even though we are a few days late (with this being the end of the school year, it got pretty crazy), we want to wish Cole a happy 4 months!!
So Cole, what have you been up to?

  • You are huge, not much else I can say about that. You are in the 97% for height and weight
  • You weigh 18.5 lbs, you are pretty much the size of a 9 month old
  • You have regressed with your night sleeping, so as we speak, we are starting to "sleep train" you. Hopefully this will help you sleep longer than 3-hour spans during the night
  • You are wearing 9-12 month clothes
  • We are still trying to wean you from your swaddle blanket, but you sure love it!! We have one arm and both legs out, eventually we'll have all the limbs out. Quite funny!
  • It is the greatest thing I've heard yet, you've really started to giggle and laugh at people. Especially when they tickle you.
  • You absolutely love your jumper, now you just want to jump all the time, mom and dad sure are getting a good arm workout!
  • The doctor said we should start giving you some solid foods, but instead of starting with rice cereal, she said to start with avocados and sweet potatoes.
  • You love to babble and "talk" to us
  • You have been the sweetest baby, can't wait to see all the new things that happen this summer while I'm home with you!! Woohoo!!

What a gorgeous little guy you have! If swaddle transitioning issues continue, you could try a Peke Moe sleep sack - http://www.pekemoe.co.nz specifically for weaning/transitioning from swaddling! :) Worked perfectly for our LO.
all the best!
