We had Cole's 4 month check up yesterday. We are a week late with this because of going on vacation. His stats are: Length: 27 in (96%), Weight: 16 lbs, 12 oz (78%), and Head: 44 cm (86%). So he's dropped out of the 90th percentile in his weight, but he's still really long. Cole has continued to be a great sleeper. He goes to be around 8 or 8:30 and doesn't wake up until 7 in the morning, and he's pretty predictable with that. He still eats about 5 times a day, but we are starting to see him being able to go longer in between feedings. The doctor said we should start him on some rice cereal once a day, so we'll have some pictures of that soon!
The major milestone Cole has achieved this month is the roll over! Two days ago, he was on his tummy and started to cry and get upset and just pushed his arms up and rolled right over. Now he has figured out that he knows how to get off his tummy and will roll over pretty quickly. He also is full of smiles! We love this of course and try to make him smile all the time. He will also do a little laugh every now and then, but that is a little harder to come by. It has to be something really good to make him laugh!
Cole is still wearing 3-6 month clothes, but is starting to grow out of the ones that are a little smaller. He can also wear some 6-9 month clothes as well. He really grew while we were on vacation! He is also done with the swaddle blanket, we think. He's been sleeping in a sleep sack for the past few nights since he was waking up out of the swaddle blanket anyways.
During his 4th month, Cole also went on his first vacation (which I still need to post pictures of!) to Myrtle Beach, SC and Charleston, SC for a week. He did a great job on the airplane on the way there, and not so good on the way back. I think he was just really tired and ready to be back home since he was really off his schedule in Charleston. But, he did really great otherwise. All of our family really enjoyed spending time with him for a whole week. He got lots of love!
Cole's personality is really starting to show. He's so much more interactive and watches everything. It's so much fun! We love our little man to pieces!
