At his checkup, JD weighed 16 lbs. 14 oz. and was 26 inches. I think that was 74th percentile on weight and 96th on height. He's a tall baby, already the same height Cooper was at 6 months and in a lot of 9 month clothing for the height.
About a week before he turned 4 months, JD started rolling from back to belly. He's so silly ... typically babies roll belly to back first, but he rolls to his belly, gets stuck and then cries. Ha.
JD has impressive neck strength. We put him in the bumbo quite a bit and he does well.
He is up to 6 oz. bottles and nurses 2-4 times at home on a typical work day. Anytime he is around me, he seems to want to eat every two hours (other than night time, haha). JD still isn't the world's greatest napper, but he sleeps from around 8:30/9 p.m. until about 6:45 a.m. Great sleeper.
His eyes are still blue and beautiful. He has fair skin and the roundest little head. I say he and Cooper look so alike, yet so different at the same time.
During his third month he attended his first Benton Neighbor Days and got to help his PaPa combine corn.
This month, JD also started smiling and "talking" a lot more.
Our little man really loves being outside and watching the TV. Always likes to cuddle and be around others. JD lights up when he sees his big brother. Cooper does so many annoying things but JD just basks in the attention.
|Haha. Poor baby had shots that day and wasn't feeling it.|
He really is the happiest, sweetest guy and we love him so much. We will keep him forever :)
