Happy 4 Months Gio!

Stats:
Weight: 14lb 5oz
Height: 24 1/2in

Saturday our little Giovanni turned 4 months. This update is a little late, but I want to get the stats from the Doctor first. He's doing great! He is still in size 1 diaper and is now in that transition stage between 0-3 and 3-6 month clothes. Growing right along. He's gotten so active! He rolls all over, plays with toys, belly laughs, even scoots! It's not crawling though. He pushes his feet down and scoots forward a little bit, he just doesn't move his arms yet, so it usually results in a face-plant. Ha ha. Not sure I'm ready for another early crawler! 

We've entered the world of teething! He drools & gnaws on everything in mouths reach, which is usually my fingers. Although, if he takes like his brother, I don't anticipate him getting any teeth soon. He still sleeps in the bassinet next to our bed, but we will be working on transitioning him to his crib. (He's ready, I'm not.)

Over all he is such a happy baby. He is always smiling and making noises.


MILESTONES:
*Rolling both ways! He started that early in his 3rd month.

*Grabbing his feet

*Belly laughs

*Splashing in his bathtub :)


His Favorite Things:
*Standing up
*Toys..rattles, links and anything he can fit into his mouth
*Bumpo Chair
*Swing
*His Pack-N-Play Play mat
*Baby Einstein Videos
*Exersaucer
*Mobile
*Bath time


Things he hates:
*Being away from mommy.
*Getting stuck on his belly.

Eating:
Still nursing like a champ. He has made some progress in taking a bottle, but it's definitely not an everyday occurrence. He eats every 3-4 hours, for about 10 minutes. We haven't started him on solids yet. He hasn't showed any interest. We will wait another couple of months or sooner if he seems ready.


And now for his monthly size comparison pictures. By the way, we just had his pictures taken by another AMAZING photographer. I am waiting on getting those back now, but the sneak peak blew me away! More on that later.
He's trying so hard to sit up on his own.
 Such a happy Baby!


And a month by month comparison picture:
