Four Months Old

Jude turned four months old last week.

29f11992-6ea5-4f05-b05f-2a35bc8a13fdwallpaperHe’s an impressive 7kgs (15.4 lbs) and just over 62 cm (24inches) long.

He has changed so much these past few months. He is such a relaxed, happy-go-lucky baby.

He’s been rolling from his belly to his back for awhile now and is super close to rolling from back to belly (he spends a lot of time on his side). He can wiggle himself in all directions. On his belly on the playmat he can inchworm himself towards his toys and in the crib at night he often ends up sideways with a foot between the bars!

IMG_8508He grabs everything and can hold his toys so well now. He can turn them over and carefully inspect them. After a good look they always end up in his mouth.

IMG_8658He also loves running his hands all over our faces –

IMG_8986Putting his fingers in our noses and mouths, and grabbing whatever he can (especially hair).

IMG_8911He watches everything that moves with great concentration – cats, youtube videos of elmo, and of course us.

These two will be besties in no time.

IMG_8926Last weekend we went to Ikea and got him a highchair. He is still at least a month away from solids but we wanted to get him used to the idea of sitting with us at the table when we eat. Plus, it’s the perfect height to watch us when we work in the kitchen.

IMG_8956His awesome neck control means we can play all sorts of fun games with him.  Airplane is one of our favorites.

IMG_8661Exactly on the 28th (his four month bday) I watched as he grabbed his feet for the first time and then stuck one in his mouth. Since then he can’t keep his hands off his feet.

IMG_8743He smiles, squeaks, blows bubbles, and explodes with laughter all the time now.  We just love this little guy.
