Jordan Matthew: Four Months

Jordan turned 4 months old on Sunday, January 30th. He now weighs 14 lbs 7 oz and is 25 inches long. I didn't measure his head circumference but he goes into the doctor tomorrow for his 4 month check up and they will do that there. He still has very little hair and it is still a red color. His eyes are still blue. The fuzz on his ears is gone. He wears mostly 0-3 month clothes. He wears some 3 month and some 3-6 month. He has officially outgrown all his newborn sized clothes now. He has just about outgrown his newborn sized diapers (thirsties fab fitteds, kissaluvs fitteds) but he can just barely fit into them still.

Jordan is still 100% breastfed. He nurses about every four hours and usually takes both sides. He's been doing really well going back and forth between nursing and taking a bottle of pumped milk while I'm at work. He still likes his soothies pacifiers. He drools constantly and his hands are almost always in his mouth.

He sleeps about 8-12 hours depending on the night. He still sleeps swaddled in his bassinet in our bedroom. Our next project is going to be getting him to sleep unswaddled. He can turn over to his stomach in his swaddle and then cannot get back to his back. We also plan to transition him into his crib in the nursery at some point in the semi-near future. He is starting to outgrow is bassinet now.

This month Jordan learned how to roll from his back to his belly. I first thought Jacob pushed him over because he never even attempted to do it. Then I saw him do it a few more times. Now he can roll both ways. He also started laughing this month. The first time he did it was when Matt was tickling him. We were both home which was nice.

It's been kind of a rough month for Jordan. He had his first cold on the 5th, a yeast diaper rash on the 11th, and his first real sickness (stomach flu) where he vomited for the first time on the 30th. He also had his first of I'm sure many, injuries from his big brother, who pulled his bouncer off the kitchen table. Jordan was fine, just a bit scared!

He was babysat by his Papa for the first time on Thursdays while Mom & Dad are at work. He also rode forward facing in his Moby Wrap for the first time, which he liked.

He still enjoys tummy time most of the time. He can hold a rattle or other small items for a short time if they are put in his hand for him. He hasn't yet picked anything up on his own or grabbed for anything. He can sit supported and he can stand supported (hold his hands) for a short time. He's very strong. He loves his big brother and watches him constantly.

Here are some pictures from last month:
