Four Months Old - Gabriel

Gabriel Michael is four months old! Where does time go?!?  I'm really late writing this post but this is my baby book so here it goes!

  •  Gabriel weighs 17 pounds and is 26.25 inches long.  He had a healthy checkup on the 18th and is growing big! He is in the 95% for height and weight.  He is almost exactly the same size as Santi at this age.  Santi was a quarter inch taller but weighed exactly the same.  Their head is the same too.
  • Wears size 3 diapers and 9 month size clothes.  It won't be long until he is in 12 month. 

  •  Can do the tripod sit but tumps over real fast.  
  • Has turned over once from tummy to back....more flips are coming soon though!
  • Reaches and grabs toys and woobies and puts them in his mouth or swats at them.  
  • Smiles and coos and laughs out loud - especially at his big brother.
  • Is ticklish!

  •  Nurses every 3.5 - 4 hours and 4-5 times a day.
  • Sleeps through the night in his own crib from about 8:30 pm until 7:45ish am - sometimes longer!
  • loves his paci and can almost put it in his own mouth
  • loves bath time
  • Only really cries when he is hungry or real tired

  •  Still dealing with reflux.  We increased his dosage of Zantac due to his weight gain and that seems to help make him feel better but he still spits up large amounts after every feeding and sometimes projectiles it!

  •  Loves to snuggle with you.  He'll wrap his arms around your neck like he is hugging you and sometimes plays with my hair.
  • Gives big slobbery kisses!
  • It melts my heart when we make eye contact and he just grins so big! 
  • Loves attention from people
  • Raises his eyebrows and does a elvis type grin
  • still loves his swing although he is getting pretty big for it
