Cole- 16 weeks (October 8, 2013)
Weight- we will find out next week at his 4 month check up. My guess is 13lb, 6 oz
Health- Still has a little congestion, but its finally draining so its much better. We elevated the head of his bed and made 'bumpers' under the sheets so he doesn't end up at the bottom of the bed. Humidifier and suctioning his nose has helped too- Love the Nose Frieda
Sleep- Sleeps like a champ at night (8:30 pm to 7 am and I wake him to feed at 4 before I leave for the gym-but we are gonna try to cut this feeding out). Naps are hit or miss- work in progress
Diet- Still eating 4 oz every 2 1/2 -3 hrs at daycare and nurses great at home
Clothes- Still in 0-3 onsies, shorts and pants. 3-6 month footed pj's. Size 1 diaper and small sleep slacks
Development- Changing daily. He now likes to hold his own bottle for short periods of time. Reaches for toys and LOVES hanging on to his dumbbell rattle that Auntie Kiki (Katie) bought him. Rolling from his tummy to his back sometimes too. Still sporting those blue eyes and hair is a light brown.
Crying- Mainly fusses when he is hungry and tired. Or when he has a belly ache because momma ate something accidentally with dairy in it.
Likes/Dislikes- Still loves his baths, watching tv(sports with dad), singing songs, playing on his activity mat and sucking on his hand or arm. Dislikes getting his nose sucked out, interrupting his feeding time for burps, and not being able to see the tv
Milestones-Can't believe my baby is almost 4 months old. He officially is not a newborn anymore. He amazes him mom and dad every day and we love talking about what kind of person he is going to grow up to be.
Happy 16 weeks Cole Michael!!!
