4 Month Checkup

Mason had his checkup today (along with shots) and he is doing wonderful. Weighing 14 lbs. and 22 1/2 inches long. He continues to be such a happy baby and is now sleeping through the night. Normally, Mason is in his crib between 8:00/8:30 and sleeps until 5 AM. Kevin and I try to make the most of the time that we have with him in the evenings and of course the weekends are extra special for us.

He is really trying to roll over. He is pushing with one foot and rocks back and forth. I'm sure he'll get there soon. He is babbling, cooing, smiling and loves to put his whole fist in his mouth. He would rather do that sometimes than to have his paci. Mason loves to watch TV. Maybe it's because we have a larger TV and he can see it really well. Although, if Blue's Clues is on, he is hooked for the entire 30 minutes. Strange how at 4 months he is that into it, but he is.

Within in the next few weeks, he'll be ready to start on some cereal and baby food. The doctor said to start with the vegetables first since I'm sure they are less desirable. I'm looking forward to seeing him eat. I'm sure he'll be excited.

His next appointment is at 6 months.
