Sawyer is 4 months old now! Time really is flying by. It is so fun to watch him do new things and learn more and more every day. He is sleeping through the night now, 10-12 hours each night. We feel lucky to have such a good sleeper. He also LOVES to play with his hands and has started playing with his feet. Sucking his thumb and chewing his fingers are his favorite things to do lately. He is giggling a lot and has the cutest little laugh. He is gaining more and more personality all the time. He even puckers out his bottom lip when he gets scared, and then lets out a loud cry. It is sad, but so funny all at the same time. He likes to play with his toys now, but still drops them quite often. It is so fun to learn more about him everyday. Just tonight I learned that bouncing him up and down when he is really tired seems to calm him down and help him sleep. He has always fought sleep, but I seem to be learning his needs more and more each day. We love him so much and are so lucky to have him in our lives. He went in for his four month check-up and got more shots- Pretty much the same story as last time. He even fell asleep right before just like last time too! Another new thing he has been doing is pulling his legs up and rolling somewhat to the side. He was doing it a lot at the doctors. I was so worried he was going to roll right off the table! Rolling like this has been very encouraging to Tyler and I because he HATES tummy time and we are always wondering how he will learn to roll over without it. (We still make him do it, we just try not to torture him too much!) Along with all these developments, he is growing bigger and bigger each day. We definately have a big boy on our hands. Here are his latest stats:
Length: 25.5 inches- 72nd percentile
Weight: 15 lbs 7 oz- 63rd percentile
You can't tell but he likes to clinch his fists and put his arms straight out- I think he is showing me how big his muscles are!
