Mason Alan you are 4 months old!
What have you been up to this past month??
Can somebody please just slow time down, because it feels as if the days and months are just flying by! You are growing up before my eyes. It's hard to believe how quickly you change from the newborn stage to the happy, lively baby stage. You are such a blessing to our family Mason Alan!
Mason, you are such an easy, happy baby! You love to snuggle and fall asleep on someone's chest, but you are just as content to be swaddled and layed down. You are happy laying on the floor, in the bouncy seat, on your activity mat, in your Johnny jumper or nestled up in our arms. You love to be talked to, kissed and loved on, even by two toddlers who don't understand the concept of personal space, who like to pick your nose and kiss you just a little too hard. You take good naps and sleep through the night, in the car seat, on the couch, in your bassinet or any other random place you might end up sleeping. You love to nurse, but take a bottle like a champ.
Weight: 15 pounds 1 ounce (39th percentile)
Height: 24.5 inches (18th percentile)
Head circumference: 17 inches (91st percentile)
You are wearing size 6-9 month clothes. You are still in size 1 diapers, but could really use size 2. I'm determined to get through my supply of size 1 diapers if possible.
You nurse about every 3-4 hours. You take 3-4 naps a day. You sleep at night from 7:30-6:30. You sleep swaddled in a sleep sack. You still sleep in the bassinet in our room. I keep saying it, but soon I will move you to your crib in Matthew's room.
Just like your bro bro and sissy were at this age, you are a bald little dude!
You love your Banna, and she thinks you are a pretty special little guy. Because you are so easy and love to just be held, you usually spend one morning a week with her while Mommy, Matthew and Mollie run errands or do something special.
You found your hands! They are ALWAYS in your mouth.
You are starting to bat at, reach for, and play with toys.
You sat in your high chair at the table with us for the first time. You'll be starting solids soon!
You also played in your jumperoo for the first time. You got tired after about 10 minutes but loved looking around and playing with your brother and sister.
You are laughing! We still have to do a bit of work to hear them, but it's pretty much the most adorable thing ever.
You love to coo and smile!
You don't really like being in the swing, but love riding in the stroller.
You love your boo boo and bath time is always a hit!
Mason Alan God knew exactly what our family needed when He created you! Never forget that you are perfectly made by Him and loved beyond measure! We love you to pieces!
