Look Who's 4 Months

Wow Little M! I can't believe you are 4 months old already. Here you are waiting on our turn at your pediatrician. It took several clicks of the camera and a lot of noises from Momma to get this smile. I love it! So, what have you been up to these 4 months?
- Well, you've started sleeping through the night, despite your daddy's snores.
- You still like, even insist, on being swaddled.
- At 16 weeks you went through a growth spurt, eating several times a day and waking 1 to 2 times a night, but now you are back to sleeping through the night again. I don't mind the night time feedings, it's one of the only times it's just you and me.
- You talk a lot, especially when Mommy's on the phone, and you have 'said' a very clear MaaMaa, even though it wasn't in response to me, just a sound.
- You love to watch your buggy mobile while kicking and playing in your crib.
- You are a very good car rider and love to go different places.
- You have recently began to enjoy sitting in your bouncer in the kitchen while Mommy cooks or cleans.
- You have not rolled over yet, because... you HATE being on your tummy.
- You do roll from side to side to reach out and grab your toys.
- Great Grandma loves to rock you AND you enjoy the being rocked by snuggling up right next to her and falling asleep, always waking in her arms with a smile.
I can't wait to see what this next month holds in store for us.

"Hmm, what is he going to do to me?"
This is our pediatrician, he is really nice and very helpful to an over anxiety ridden mother.

So, what did the doctor say?
- Heart, lungs, bowels... All good
- Ears, nose, throat, and eyes all good
- You weigh 13lbs 3oz and are 24 3/4 inches long.
- Your very strong with arms, head, and legs. You need to work on shoulders (but you hate your tummy!)
- Dr says the Swine Flu (H1N1) is no more worrisome than the flu that kills 40,000 people a year. Media Hype
Doctor orders: MORE TUMMY TIME:) We shall see....
