4 Months Old

Hudson, you are 4 months old today!
You have grown up so much in the past month! The last weighing you had you were at 13lbs 3oz. That was about 3 weeks ago so I can't imagine how big you are now!

You are wearing 3-6 month clothes, but they still swallow you a bit. There are some 0-3 things that you can still wear.

You still wear size 1 diapers.

In the past month we have found out that you have acid reflux. Due to this, and what  mommy's body was telling her (which she was/is sad about), you are now only eating a special formula. It's heavier and sits in your stomach better. You are spitting up less, but still have your moments. I'm just glad you're feeling better and it doesn't bother you as much anymore.

You were on such a great sleeping schedule until you got sick a few weeks ago. It really messed everything up, but we are finally getting it back and you are even going to bed earlier than before. You have been going to sleep between 8:30 and 9 most nights. You still wake up once, maybe twice, and are usually up at about 6:30am. You can't stand to miss a moment of what's going on around you so you fight naps pretty bad. Some days at daycare you sleep no more than an hour, and sometimes you take a good 2 hour afternoon nap. You are such a silly guy when it comes to sleeping! You fight it until you just can't stand it anymore.

You are so active and alert (people comment about this all the time). You are a busy body! You are always moving. You love to sit up or stand. You only like to lay down on the floor when you can kick and play. You don't like to lay down if you think it's going to make you sleep.

You have found your hands and how to control them! You love to have them in your mouth and you are really good at holding your toys! You are working on holding your bottle and occasionally hold it on your own for a second or two. You are really good at pulling it out of your mouth when you are finished.

You smile ALL the time and at everyone! Mommy thinks you are one big flirt with the girls! You are also figuring out your laugh. Sometimes you open your mouth and nothing comes out, ha! But you like to laugh when we put your feet to your face or when daddy makes you fly in the air. Your happiness is contagious :)
You are our everything , the light of our life! We love you more and more each day and are so excited with the new things you are learning to do. We cannot believe how much you have grown up in the past 4 months! We love you little man!
