This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

4 Months Old

My bouncing baby boy is already 4 months old! I'm not going to lie and say it has flown by because it feels like it has been a long summer. But things are on the upswing now and we have a happy growing baby!

Weight: 16lb 6oz
Length: 25 3/4"

At 4 months old you:
  • are rocking the cloth diapers still!
  • take 2-3 one-two hour naps
  • go to bed at 8pm and wake up every 2-4hrs
  • nurse every 2-3hr
  • only have 1 bottle you like when mommy is gone
  • started rice cereal and LOVE it
  • just cut one of your bottom teeth!
  • finally have some very light brown hair growing back
  • still have a little cradle cap
  • love to stand up and look around
  • like to sit and play in your new exersaucer
  • are outgrowing a lot of your 3-6mo clothes already

We started him on cereal a few days ago to see if that would help him sleep longer at night (it didn't). He loves it! He took right to the spoon and doesn't even push the food out of his mouth. In a couple of weeks we are going to start him on some homemade baby food!


He is generally a happy baby and only gets cranky when tired or hungry. He has definitely been teething and today at his doctor appt. I noticed one of his bottom teeth is just cutting thru the gums! He got two shots and only cried for a few minutes. He got some Tylenol when we got home and is napping now.

He is still sleeping in our room because of his frequent night feedings that he insists on. When he is down to about 1 feeding per night then we will transition him to his crib. Hopefully that is soon!! His sleep habits are so much different than Brad's were.
