Baby g had his 4 month checkup with his new pediatrician (both mom and dad really liked her). This baby boy is healthy and growing!
Here are the stats:
Weight: 12 lbs 11 oz
Height: 24 3/4 in
We are currently working to get baby g to sleep from 10:30 until 7:00 without a feeding and we are going on three nights that he hasn't gotten a 3:00 am feeding but has yet to NOT wake up. It is a work in progress.
We have also started feeding baby g baby food! The doc recommended that we start with veggies, then fruits then cereal. [Interesting side note: by starting babies on rice cereal we have created a carb loving society. We want to have a vegetable loving society, hence the recommendation to start with veggies. Interesting, no?] Anywho...baby g has added carrots to his diet and on only his second day he was eating them up!
Check out this video of baby g 's first taste of baby food.
In other news, we are still working on the roll over. Gave successfully has rolled from stomach to back three times now. He hasn't quite mastered the back to tummy nor do I think he realizes he has control over these movements. We'll get there though. The kid is crazy strong.
Baby g continues to use his vocal chords and I personally thinks sometimes his singing sounds a lot like a Disney mermaid but that may just be me. Check out his great communication skills in the video below.
