happy four months, ford boy!

Ford, you turned four months old on November 8. You have really, really grown and changed a ton over the past month! You have gotten so big, and you are really growing up!

Your four month check-up was on Nov. 11. You weighed 14 lbs., 10 oz. and were 25.5 inches long. You've definitely put on some weight over the past few weeks, and we are so glad!



As you can tell from these pictures, you are just the smiliest little boy I've ever seen. You LOVE to be talked to and you definitely show it by smiling so big anytime anyone even looks at you!

You have such a sweet personality. You really love you big sister, too. You love to "watch" tv with her and to watch her play. She always runs to get me when you cry; I think it breaks her heart.



You are wearing 6-9 months clothes now. You are such a long little boy that we have to buy you bigger sizes for the length. You are still in a size 1 diaper.

You are nursing and taking a bottle (about a 60:40 bottle to nursing ratio). You are easy to get to sleep at night, too. You nurse, take your bottle, and fall fast asleep. Sometimes, you'll wake up to nurse about 1:30 a.m., but other times you'll sleep through the night. It just depends on the night.



You've started sitting in the Bumbo some while I work in the kitchen. You really like it, even though it causes you to spit up a lot. I think sitting in it makes you feel like such a big guy!

You usually take a couple naps during the day-- one before lunch and one in the afternoon when Big Sister finally goes to sleep, too. You love your afternoon naps.



You also love to ride in the car. 99% of the time, you'll fall fast asleep anytime we go anywhere.

You have started taking medicine for acid reflux. We are hoping that it will help you out. Poor little guy-- you spit up A LOT. A LOT A LOT. But, hopefully, the medicine will help make you feel better. You are a "happy spitter" so we hope that it goes away soon!

I am holding off on giving you rice cereal for a few more weeks. We've started adding it to your bottle (per doctor's orders) to help thicken up your formula hoping that will help with the spit up, too. It seems to be helping a little bit.


My sweet Ford boy, I love you so, so much. You are such a sweet baby, and I cannot imagine our family without you in it now. You bring so much fun and joy to our lives every single day. Your daddy, Watts and I love you too, too much, and we are thankful for you!
