Four Months

Our sweet Ryder boy, you are now four months old! It is so hard to believe that you are 1/3 of the way through your very first year. Your little personality is really starting to make itself known. You are the happiest, smiley little guy- except when you big brother trips over something and falls on you or wakes you up by running in your room and yelling loudly with excitement. I just know that you will be best buddies. Finn knows it too, he just doesn't understand why he can't play with you yet. You are learning that your family is very loud. You mastered rolling by month three, but you are now rolling across the floor. If I leave the room, you are no longer in the same spot I left you. I am not ready for you to become mobile anytime soon, little man, but I feel like it is going to happen so much quicker this time around. You seem to be in a hurry to keep up with that fun big brother of yours. You've started sitting in your bumbo seat and have begun to reach for toys on your play mat (when you brother doesn't take them off). I feel like we will need to get a new highchair soon as you want to be involved in family dinner time. I don't plan to start solid foods for a while, but you no longer like sitting on the floor in your bouncy seat during dinner and would much prefer to sit in our laps and watch us talk.You still hate your carseat, so you now sit like a big boy in the stroller like your brother.

We don't go to the doctor until next week, so I'll post your stats then. My guess would be that you're well over 14 lbs and quite a bit longer. You're still fitting in 3 month clothes, but they're getting pretty snug and I feel like we'll be in 6 month in a couple weeks. You're still in size two diapers. You've started laughing regularly and we'll do just about anything to make you laugh! You are still sleeping like a champ. You sleep 12 hours at night and are more than ready for bed by 6:45 PM. In typical second child fashion, your morning nap is less than consistent as we're usually on the go somewhere. You catch up during afternoon nap by sleeping 3 hours like your brother! You love to eat and have been eating every three to four hours. We are so blessed to be your mommy and daddy and love you to pieces,  sweet boy!

  1. I will say, with 2, 4-5 months is really when I felt like we hit our stride. Though, you seem to have already hit it, so way to go! I agree - Ben seems to be hitting all his milestones much earlier than Canon did and it feels like it is going by way too quickly!!!
