4 months old

Weston Hayes you are 4 stinking months old! My little are such a joy to my heart. I am so in love with you it isn't even funny. I wish time would just stay still for a few months and let me savor these sweet baby moments. Your smiles, your laughs, your coos...all melt my heart.
Quick update on your little life thus far!
Weston you are STILL not sleeping through the night. In fact, I'd say you have started doing worse than before. You were waking up just once, but now we are back to seeing each other at least twice during the night. I honestly don't mind are lots of fun to wake up to. You have been taking very nice naps...sometimes up to 3 hours at a time. You are not really on any kind of schedule, but we make it work.
You nurse every three hours during the day and are a fantastic eater. You are quick and get the job done within 10-15 minutes.
We went to the doctor yesterday and you weight 13.1 pounds. You are 11% for your weight and 19% for your height. You are bigger than your sissy, but are still pretty small.
You wear a size 3 diaper and size 6 month clothes. You have yet to wear shoes so I have no idea what size shoe you are in!
You have started to enjoy tummy time and your play mat. You struggle to play independently for any length of time, but we are working on it. You will tolerate your bouncy seat for a few minutes...enough to let me get a few things done. You are unsure of the bumbo but I'm sure in the next few weeks you will grow to love sitting up.
You absolutely love bath time...I have yet to see you get upset when in the tub. You are growing more and more fond of your sister. I catch you staring at her and watching her every move. You seem less afraid and skittish around her...I think you are realizing she is here to stay and can even be quite entertaining.
We love you so much Weston Hayes. You are the most precious gift from above. Can't wait to see what amazing things you will do with your little life!
