Baby Boy is 4 months!!

Oh wow... little baby Logan is 4 months old! I can't believe it. It's so funny because sometimes it seems like he's only 4 months! Why isn't he more mobile, eating solids, saying words and signing... and then I remember, do I really want those things to happen already? No! I want him to be a little snuggly baby as long as possible! I think what's hard, is that most babies we hang out with are older, so I think that Logan should be able to do what those babies are doing. I really need to get over that, because then I think that he's not developing. Oh geez...what's wrong with me? Sorry, Andy that you have to put up with me. :)

All about Logan at 4 months:

  • He weighs 15 lbs 11 oz and is 25.5 inches long. I was guessing that he was at 16 lbs, I was pretty darn close. These are all in the 75th percentile, which is awesome, but makes me a little concerned because he's been in the 95th up to this point. I'm not concerned for his health...more concerned that he's going to start showing that he got his mama's genes. Yikes!
  • Logan loves to talk and make so much noise. It's so cute when he's just playing with his toys and just talking to them.
  • As much as he loves to talk to his toys, he always gets pretty frustrated with them. One second he will be happy and giggling, and then the next he'll be fussy because he can't reach one, or can't bring it to his mouth. He's just been doing that the last few days and it's kind of funny, but sad. 
  • He's lost a lot of hair...he's got a pretty sweet bald spot in the back. You can see it in some of the pictures. Sure hope it grows back soon...
  • Log loves his tongue! He used to suck on his thumb, but now he just sticks his thumb and pointer finger in his mouth and grabs his tongue. It's so stinking cute. If Andy or I stick our tongues out at him, he will smile and sometimes stick his out back at us.
  • He's hit the 4 month sleep regression...AWESOME! It hasn't been too bad, but he used to fall asleep by 7 or 8 for bedtime, and not wake up again until 3. Now he's up by 1 or so... Oh, there was one night where he woke up at 1:00, 2:00 AND 3:00. It was super awesome. :)
  • Logan will now start reaching and grabbing his toys when he's on his belly. 
  • When he's on his playgym, he will start reaching for toys that are farther away from him (this is about the time he gets frustrated because he can't reach them...). So cute to see him reach though, and not just automatically grab what's right in his face.
  • Logan has enjoyed his first few concerts. During the summer, the city of Kirkland puts on Kid Concerts at the beach near our house. So Log and I will walk down and enjoy the sun and silly music. My favorite is Caspar Babypants (seriously, look him up). I think I love him because he was the lead singer for Presidents of the United States of America (so, a rock band) and he now plays kids music. Super fun!
  • Logan is very close to rolling from his back to his tummy, but can't quite get over that shoulder yet.
  • He is getting more adventurous and loves to be tossed (ever so gently). He finally recognizes what's going on and realized it's pretty fun. He's also started to jump up and down a little, with big smiles and giggles of course.
  • He's still such a snuggler. I LOVE IT! 
I feel like there's more, but that's all I can think of right now (and that's a lot, anyway). Here are a few pictures of the little guy the last month or so. Such a cutie-patooty!!

He is a big boy sometimes and holds his own bottle

Loves bathtime and showers 
He loves to watch soccer with Daddy (note his bald spot)

Cuddling and being tickled by daddy

Loves to suck on his blankets

He loves to read

Seriously, the sweetest face

He loves to sit and hunch over and cuddle me. Pretty funny

Cutest smile ever!
