4 Months

Well James is now 4 months old and has survived another round of shots. Both mommy and James cried a little less this time around. James is still a long skinny little boy. He weighs 13 pounds (15%) and is 25.5 inches long (75%).

James has learned a lot this month. He likes to talk to us and smile at us. He has learned to grab at smaller plastic toys and put them in his mouth and chew on them. He likes to sit up in chairs with pillows supporting him. 3 days before officially becoming 4 months old he rolled over. He is no longer able to spend any time on his tummy. As soon as I put him on his tummy he rolls right over onto his back. It won't be long before I can't catch up with him!

We went to the pumpkin patch (a fun fall experience I have always wanted to have with my child). Every year since we got married I have dragged Lee to a pumpkin patch to take pictures of the pumpkins. Those pictures were cool but no where near as special or cute as they are when you put your own little boy in there with all the pumpkins. We got some pretty cute shots even though James wasn't quite sure why he had to hang out with pumpkins for extended periods of time while we looked at him and made faces at him!

3 Months

Well, I figured I should do my 3 months post quick before James turns 4 months old and I am two months behind! Basically at this point I don't remember a lot about what I was going to write about 3 months because it has been so long...

A few things I remember:

James started grabbing things this month. I expected him to grab at hard plastic toys and stick them in his mouth and chew on them but he started with grabbing his burp cloths and chewing on them. Since he seemed to like cloth I gave him his lovie blanket and he liked cuddling and chewing on that.
James started telling us long stories and laughing and cooing.

James started sleeping 8 hours a night and being very regular with a nap schedule during the day.
