4 Month Update

At 4 months, here is the skinny on Maddox:

-He weighs 13 pounds, 8 ounces (10th percentile) and is 25 1/2 inches long (50th percentile)

-His hair is over 3 inches long

-Maddox laughs a ton and has a cute, flirtatious smile

-He especially loves his dad and can't look away from Scott when he gets home from work

-Maddox kicks his legs and flaps his arms when he gets really excited

-He loves bath time and is really good at kicking and getting mom wet

-He gets excited to take his vitamins

-He likes watching mom wheel Great Grandpa Layton's toy tractor around on the floor and he tries to push it around himself

-Maddox likes to sit at the table with mom and dad during dinner; normally he is in the Bumbo, but if we are holding him, he'll try to grab our glass when we take a drink

-He likes looking at the computer, TV, iPhone.... basically anything with a screen and color

-He is very ticklish on his back/sides

-He can stick his pacifier in his mouth AND let go (that was the tricky part for a while)

-He is a master at sitting in his Bumbo now

-Maddox can roll from his tummy to his back and is so close to rolling from his back to his tummy, he just needs to swing those legs over

-He is almost able to sit up on his own

-He is finding his legs and feet a lot more

-He puts EVERYTHING in his mouth

-Maddox helps turn the page when we read

-Maddox is rocking cloth diapers

-He currently spends 3 days a week with Mai while mom and dad are at work; she is wonderful with him and he is always happy at the end of the day when we get home

-He sleeps a lot better than a month ago; currently, he'll take 2 good 1 1/2 hour naps during the day and at night he's going down between 8:30 and 9:30, waking up 2 times on a good night, and sleeps for about a 3 hour stretch at a time... we are constantly working to improve his sleeping habits:)

-He is liking tummy time a lot more and will rest his head when he needs a break instead of immediately crying

-He had his first tears a couple weeks ago...sad:(

-Maddox has this cute little cry/shrill that Scott has dubbed "the dinosaur cry" (he compares it to a baby velociraptor or pterodactyl)

-He went to his first motorcycle show last weekend

-He went on his first hike two weekends ago

-Maddox went on his first road trip (to Connell at 3 months) for Christmas; while we were there, he also cheered at his first basketball game

We opened gifts here at home Christmas Eve before heading to WA.

First road trip!

First hike!

We found Maddox's doppelgänger... Nick from Scott's work.

Maddox loved the motorcycle show...almost as much as
dad loved showing it to him.
