4 Months



Chad is 4 months old! When Chad came into our lives, I loved him instantly.  The crazy thing is that I love him more now than I did then and I didn’t think that was even possible.  He has brought so much happiness & light into our lives.

At 4 months, Chad:

>> Eats SO. MUCH.

>> Laughed for the first time {my Dad was the first person to get him to laugh}

>> Discovered his feet & loves sucking on his toes

>> Hold his head up well

>> Smiles frequently (he’s such a flirt!)

>> Would rather sit or stand than lay on his back or tummy

>> Will react to his name

>> Will drink from any bottle and any type of formula (Hallelujah! Makes emergency feedings less traumatic for the both of us)

>> Is getting much better at grabbing things

>> Can roll over, but doesn’t ever want to

>> Went on his first roadtrip/vacation; he did so well and we loved being in Santa Barbara!

>> Stats:

  • Height: 26 in (82%)
  • Weight: 16 lbs. 3 oz. (64%)
  • Head: 48%
