Bennett | 4 Months
I don't know what it is about month 4 but it just sounds so old to me! Bennett is a dream child and literally makes me melt every second of every day. He is so much fun and so stinking cool! We just wrapped up a few days at the beach and as expected Bennett loved the water!
Weight/Height: Bennett has his 4 month appointment on Thursday so I will update after that. My guess is he is pushing 15 lbs & 23 in.
Hair: His hair is getting SO much lighter. We spent a significant amount of time outside this month so I have a feeling this summer when we are outside a ton it's going to continue to lighten up. He also lost a ton of hair this month. Poor guy looks so funny.. the back of his head is practically bald and the hair on the top is really long. Too funny!
Eyes: Bennett's eyes are extremely blue still. They keep getting lighter and lighter.
Clothes: Mostly 3-6 months right now, will probably transition to 6-9 soon since his chest is wide and every shirt is tight! Pants/shorts are 0-3 still..#ShortLegProbs
Diapers: Size 1
Sleeping: Bennett goes to sleep at 7:30-8:00 and sleeps until 6:30-7:00 the next morning. We are starting to transition out of the swaddle and he has been sleeping with one arm out for the last week or so. We will probably move the second arm out after another week or two. We are still diffusing lavender in his room each night and after not having it at the beach these last few days I am so anxious to get back to using it since Bennett slept terrible the whole time we were gone. Word to the wise.. DO NOT go on vacation without your essential oils!
Likes: Still loving bath time and walks! This kid would stay outside all day if we would let him. We also discovered his love for T.V. this month ha! We don't like to turn the T.V. on too much but during his witching hour (5-7) it's nice to have a little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse as a distraction ; )
Dislikes: Being hungry or tired
Eating: Bennett drinks a 6oz bottle every 3-3.5 hours. He is still pretty scheduled with his feedings and pretty much sticks to his times each day. We transitioned to 6.5oz bottles and started baby food this week!
Milestones: Teething was in full force this month! His bottom two teeth have been trying to poke through for weeks. He had a few rough nights of sleep because of it but has been doing much better lately.
Baby items we can't live without: Fisher Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat, WubbaNub Paci, Britax B-Agile stroller, and lavender essential oil!
I can't believe how fast time is going and although I wish it would slow down it has been so fun watching Bennett develop so much recently!
