George:: Four Months

My baby turned four months old this past weekend! Is he not the cutest boy you've ever seen?! He is so sweet and so happy. We are so lucky to have such a fun baby boy.

George grew a lot as a three month old! At his four month doctor's appointment he weighed 15 pounds and 1 ounce and was a whopping 26.25 inches long! He was only in the 40th percentile for weight but the 90th for height and 93rd for head circumference! He is lean and mean with a big ole noggin. :) That length explains why he's already wearing 6 month clothing.

Aside from physically growing like a weed, Georgie's personality also continues to grow! He is such a talker these days and spends most days smiling from ear to ear. My heart could explode with happiness every morning when I wake up to that smiling face.  He loves his bouncy chair, lovey, and is very intrigued by toys these days. He has almost mastered rolling over, too!

The pediatrician said that we could start introducing baby food to George any time now. She said the purees are safe to start whenever we want, but if we want to take the baby led weaning approach then we needed to wait until he was at least six months old. I need to do more research on the baby led weaning process as I'm not sure how easily we could implement it being as both Michael and I work throughout the week. We might do a mixture of both and start him on baby food now and then introduce real foods to him in a couple of months. We'll see!

That's all for now. Have a wonderful weekend!
