Asher John at FOUR months
8.7kg (19 lbs) - 98th percentile
67.4 cm (26.5in) in length -96th percentile
45 cm (17.7in) in head cir. - 100th+ percentile
Eating - Same, every 3-4 hours. This month at thanksgiving he tried rice cereal and did great but we took him off of it a week later bc of his loose bowels. He is still eating only formula and loving every feeding.
Sleeping - between every other feeding during the day and goes to bed at 8pm. Mommy dream feeds him around 10:30 or 11 pm and he will sleep all the way until 8am where we will find him in his bed wide awake just a smiling not making any noises. He has a big nap in the morning and the late afternoon but takes cat naps still in between. Looks like we got another good sleeper. PTL.
Sounds - Lots of fun sounds... mostly makes noises when he is chopping on his finger
Smiles - anytime you talk to him, sing to him, or just smile at him... smiles all the time
Happy - Extremely
Best Trait - patient and fun to be around... he loves attention but does not necessarily need it... he loves it when you give it to him though...
Cries - his cries are more like grunts... the other day we were at a friends house and she was playing with him and I said oh he is crying and she said "really, it just sound like he was constipated"... yes thats his cry..
Nick Name - Bubba, Bubba 2, Asher Johnny Boy
Firsts - still trying to roll over... can get the legs over but still working on the upper body. He really enjoys sitting in his bumbo and we have a teether. You will notice in some of the photos below a lot of drool... yes we have teeth coming but not sure where yet... when I give him something to bit on he usually puts it in the back of his mouth on his left side... only time will tell.
Funnies: The best way to make Asher smile or laugh is to squeeze his bum cheeks or the back of his thighs (he loves it) or just look at his and laugh with a gently laugh... he will mimic you...
Big Brother: Pierce loves to squeeze and hold Asher and has to kiss him every morning and every night before bed. There does not seem to be any jealousy for now and Pierce always wants to show his baby brother new toys. Pierce picked out Ashers first Christmas Present... dinosaur hand puppets... he he he
We could just eat this little one up... enjoy the pics...
