4 month stats

Garrett is 4 months old now. He went to the Dr today to get a check-up and his 4 month shots.

weight: 17lb 3oz (95%tile)
height: 26 1/8 inches (95%tile)
head: 17 inches (75%tile)

The nurse started to say "You can now start him on cereal and begin to start foods" So I told her "He's had rice cereal, applesauce, green beans, and carrots" The Dr came in and saw he'd eaten some and reviewed how to go about it and told me that closer to 6 months he'd begin to eat size 2 jars a couple times a day. . . ummm . . . he started on size 2 jars and is up to 1 1/2 size 2 jars per meal, twice a day. . . yeah I left that info out. I just said "Ok" :)

He can roll from his tummy to his back.
He is super close to rolling from back to tummy.
He scoots himself backwards when on his back.
He holds his head up good while on tummy and when being held.
He coos, "talks", and laughs a lot.
He eats 2 jars of size 2 baby food twice a day.
He sleeps most of the night.
He can grasp at still objects above his head.
He grasps his hands and pulls them to his mouth to chew.
He tries to chew on everything he can!
He smiles all the time. (one dimple :) )
He thinks it's crazy to be still.
He wants to be in the standing position all the time.
He loves it when his big sister pays attention to him.

Has your daddy been slipping those steroids into your SIZE 2 food jars??? You come see Aunt Rie and we will get you crawling in no time to work off that baby weight! ;)
