4 Month Stats

Brock had his 4 month check up appointment yesterday and it went great! As usual, he was absolutely perfect!! He let the doctor poke and prod him without a peep. Everything looked and sounded great! He got his shots and the first shot, he didn't even cry!! The 2nd one he cried a little bit, but not for long and nothing his binkie covered in sugar couldn't cure. As we were checking out, he was wide awake, talking and checking out the receptionists and within a second, he was passed out, totally asleep! At first we were worried it was a side effect of the shots, but he was just wiped out! He slept the whole way home, then woke up and was happy as usual. You seriously would not have even known he'd just had shots!

Stats breakdown:
- 25 and 5/8" (80th percentile)
- 17 pounds (80th percentile)
- again in the 90th percentile for his big 'ole head
- GREAT head control and neck/arm strength
Here are some other fun facts about him right now:
- Wearing size 3 diapers (and has been for about 2 weeks)
- Wears 6 month onesies and about to grow out of his 3-6 month clothes
- Wears 6-12 month jeans
- Eats 6, 6 oz bottles per day (every 3-4 hours)
- Sleeps about 10 hours a night (goes down b/w 9-10 and up around 7)
- Grabbing at things in front of him - he loves grabbing ahold of his blanket or burp rag and pulling it up over his head
- Still gets a binkie at night or for naps, but doesn't need it or really use it much
- Gets about 1-2 long naps a day and then sometimes has other cat naps
- He's found his tongue! It's always sort of been there when he smiled, but now he sticks it out and plays with it
- Giggles and talks ALL THE TIME! So much fun! He especially loves to talk in the car

What we're working on:
- Rolling over - the doctor thinks b/c of his size it might be a little harder for him to roll over, so she's not concerned
- Starting solids - we'll be starting this around the 5 month mark
- Sitting up - he can sit up leaning against things, but not on his own yet
- Teething - so far, still no teeth, but the doctor said it could be anytime

We're heading to Wichita this weekend and everyone is so excited to see him! Aunt Teea and his cousins Tatum and Brig haven't seen him since June and Meme and Poppy haven't seen him since his Baptism a little over a month ago. They are all going to be so surprised by how big he is!! We're going to watch Tatum play soccer and then hit the pumpkin patch!!

The check up yesterday just reminded us how incredibly lucky we are that he is so healthy and happy! We never want to take that for granted and thank God every day for our little blessing!!
