Adler 4 Months


Adler is 4 months old!  Time flies when you're having fun!  We're having a ball with you!  This month was your first snow day and first Valentines day!  You are by far the biggest "talker" of the three as a baby.  I guess you've got a lot to say to keep up around here.  You are the most dramatic too which is a little terrifying!

You weigh 14 pounds, 7 ounces and are 24.5 inches tall/long.  You wear 3 month and 3-6 month clothes and we moved up to size 3 diapers.  You take 6 ounces 4-5 times a day.  You want to drop your last feeding but you need the ounces.  You're still sleeping pretty good.  You've started kind of waking up and whining but not really waking up.  We're trying to transition you to the crib, the first night you slept until 4:30 without waking.  The second night you were up nearly every hour whining but not really crying.  We're going to keep trying because you're about to outgrow the rock 'n play that you've been sleeping in.   You usually take 3 good naps and one little cat nap everyday.  You nap well in your crib when we're home, we're just not home enough. ( We're home for the next 10 days in quarantine so getting you to sleep in your crib for all naps and all night is my main goal).  

You are the sweetest "on the go" baby.  We wrapped up basketball season but we're getting ready to dive into baseball season.  You just go with the flow, thank goodness!  We started a small group with a few other families from church and you just slept and then sat in my lap the whole time.  You were just the sweetest!
Highlights this month: Your first snow day.  First Valentines Day, you will roll to your side so you're getting close to making it all the way over.   You try to sit up all the time.  You want to hold your bottle.  You are so loud and it makes me laugh so much.  If you're talking and no on is paying you any attention you just get louder and louder until we acknowledge you.  After your shots Monday,  you were just pitiful.  I was always able to calm your brother and sister down before we left the little exam room to walk out of the office.  Not you, you just screamed and screamed.  When we walked by the nurses station you just looked right at them and poked that little lip out and screamed some more.  You wanted everyone to know how upset you were.  
It's been a fun month!
