4 Months Old

My adorable handsome little hunk is already 4 months old!

From October 2011

It is hard to believe how quickly the time is flying by...even faster than I remember it going with his sister!

What is Cooper up to these days?

*Cooper weighs about 15 pounds. He goes for his 4 month shots next week so I will get all of his measurements then.
*He wears a size 3 diaper.
*He wears 3-6 month clothes.
*Cooper is trying really hard to roll over these days. He is so close, but just can't get that last little umph to make it to his belly!
*Cooper LOVES to talk, and LOUD!

From October 2011

*Cooper ADORES his big sister! If she is in the room, all of his attention is on her.
*He has the cutest coos and I love to hear him laugh!
*Cooper still eats about every 2 hours throughout the day.
*At night time, Cooper is usually having a 9-10 hour stretch of sleep. He usually goes down around 8PM and wakes between 5 and 6 to eat then goes down again until I wake him for school. On the weekends he usually sleeps until 8:45 or 9!
*Cooper is a horrible napper! He usually will take a 45 minute to 1 hour nap for me in the mornings on the weekends. Then I find myself trying and trying to get him down for an afternoon nap. He is just too curious about everything going on around him and fights sleep like crazy! By 5 PM, that boy is exhausted so once I have tried a few times to get him down, I usually take him out in the car seat and can get a little nap in that way. At school, he cat naps in 15 minute increments a lot, and sometimes will take a nap for a longer stretch.

*Cooper is still exclusively breastfed. We probably won't start any solids until he is closer to 6 months old.
*If the TV is on in a room, he loves to watch it! We try to keep that to a minimum though.
*Often in the evenings while Chris and I eat dinner, he sits in his bouncy seat on the counter with us. He loves to stare us down and has the dreamiest little gaze.
*Cooper has a great grip these days and can hold on to toys. He can pick them up if it is something worthy of putting in his mouth and it is within his reach!
*He loves chew on his burp cloths as well as his doggie and elephant crinkle toys!

Cooper has been such an incredible addition to our family. Chris and I both feel blessed beyond measure!
