4 Months Old!
Another month under his belt, Forrest is now 4 months old and 17.5 pounds. In the past few weeks both his body and his brain have definitely been going through a growth spurt. That said, I don't think there's been any time in his life so far that he wasn't going through a growth spurt. When he was 0-3 months old he pretty much wore 0-3 month clothes, but now at 4 months he's already outgrown the 3-6 clothes. Cognitively he is in a whole new league too. It's like suddenly he got real eyes and now he just can't get enough of looking at stuff! And shoving it in his mouth too, because he's probably started teething as well. His legs are strong and he loves practicing standing. He can roll from his back to his tummy but only by accident so far. The main struggle of this month has been his sleep. People talk about the 4 month regression but I'm not worried about it because it's hard to regress if you've never progressed to begin with. Forrest won't go to sleep unless he's being held and regardless he wakes up every two hours, sometimes like clockwork. I've got a pile of sleep training books but I haven't had time to read any of them and even when I do, I'm not sure sleep training is for us because he still seems so little - and so hungry! So that's the news at 4 months!
