Joshua at 4 Months

Joshua turned 4 months last Wednesday! He is the happiest baby!

Last month we traveled to Taiwan, and this month we went to Hong Kong. It was just me and the little peanut-and we flew there and came back in the same day. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be-he actually did really good in the carrier. 

It was a tiring day, but he did really good!

Besides going to Hong Kong for the first time, he also rolled over from his back to his tummy this month. Another change is that he is out of the swaddle for all his daytime naps! He transitioned really well to it. We still swaddle at night, but will probably unswaddle soon. He does sleep in a sleepsack though for all his naps.

Paige continues to be really sweet (ha!) with Joshua. She wants to hold him, play with him, and gives him little kisses on his head. She loves to do tummy time with him! You can tell he is thrilled.

Joshua has changed so much! Sometimes I think he looks like Paige (who looks like me) and some days I can see a lot of Daniel in him. 

4 Month Stats:

Weight: Almost 12 lbs, he's a little fella. More on that later. 
Length: Almost 24 inches
Size Diaper: He's in Small cloth diapers during the day and Pampers smalls or mediums
Size Clothes: 3 Months
Sleep: He's a rockstar! This past month he officially he started sleeping through the whole night! He sleeps 7:30-7:30, and sometimes even later. His first nap is about 2 hours long, and then his next two naps are about 1-1/2 hours. 
Feedings: He nurses at 7:30am, 10:30/11, 2ish, 5pm, and 7pm. I do a dreamfeed at about 10pm each night. 
Teeth: None yet, but I'm pretty sure he's teething.

So he's always been a little guy. But I took him in for his 4 month check up and he's fallen a little bit on the growth chart. The little man is not quite 12 lbs, and Paige was over 12 lbs at 2 months! So I met with a lactation consultant this week just to check on how he was feeding and my milk supply. But everything checked out fine-there's milk and he's eating great, so there's no need to worry right now (which I was dong PLENTY of!). We are going to watch his weight, but I think he is okay. He did go up in height on the growth chart, so he's growing, just only one direction, ha!

That's Joshie at 4 months!
