4 months old
Grayson had his 4 month check up on Friday. He weighs 13lbs and 14oz. I actually thought he may weigh more than that. He's in the 42 percentile for weight. According to the nurse he's 25 3/4 inches long. I think he's an even 26 inches long. He's in the 86 percentile for length. His head measures 17 inches. He's in the 76 percentile for his head. The doctor said he's looking great and I'm doing a good job. :) He doesn't go back until May 7th for his 6 month check up.
Grayson has a tooth that will probably come in soon. Its in the bottom front. You can see it right under the surface. I have a picture somewhere that I'll have to post. You can see his tooth.
Grayson love's to try to sit up. Friday night he was sitting in his Papa G's lap and held onto his Papa's fingers. He pulled himself forward in a sitting position. Then he pulled himself to a standing position. I couldn't believe he did that! That was his first time. Grayson has done it several time's since then.
While we were at his grandparents house his Nana was holding him and he started grabbing his foot. She took his sock off and he was leaning towards his foot with his mouth open. It was so cute!
He's started to laugh more. I love to hear him giggle. He laughs so hard sometimes when I act like I'm munching on his belly.
Grayson really enjoys chewing/sucking on his fingers, hands, my hands, links, keys, anything soft. He loves for his gums to be brushed. One of his favorite things to do is jump up & down in your lap. He likes it when you lift him up & down. He likes to see EVERYTHING!!! He's not one for staying still. He's starting to grab at things now. He almost dived into my plate of oranges yesterday. He is one active little boy. He's learned how to make noises with his lips. I can't think of what you call it. He will make that noise with his lips and blow bubbles in the process. Another new thing he's doing is suck on his bottom lip. When he does that it disappears and he is left with the CUTEST expression. I have pictures to prove it!
Nathan and I love him so much! We're having a blast watching him change day to day. So far his smile is the best!
