What’s he up to?
He’s eating 7 ounces four times a day. He is still on mommy milk, which is exciting! At his 4 month check up the doctor gave me a prescription for something to get my supply up again. I’m so excited it’s working! I am always going to love his milk breath. Something I would miss if was drinking formula. Am I weird?? I still love his little feet too! He has also been trying to hold his own bottle when he eats
He had a great 4 month check up. He is a happy and healthy little guy. He was good for the doctor until one point when the doctor was checking him out and he randomly started crying. The doctor picked him up and calmed him down. We had a couple questions for the doctor including one about his belly button not healing all the way yet. We are supposed just put some rubbing alcohol on it and that should help. Jackson also got some shots at the end. He cried for about 30 seconds until I picked him up and cuddled him. We are so thankful he is healthy!
He isn’t really sleeping through the night anymore. He wakes up anywhere from 2-6 times wanting his nuk. I think it has to do with his teething but we aren't sure. He does most of the waking up around 2 or 3 in the morning. Then he will sleep until 9. He does nap twice a day for a couple hours in his crib
Little Jackson is already teething! It started with major drooling and now he gets fussy, has a hard time eating and sleeping and wants to chew on everything. What’s really odd is that it’s not the bottom or top front teeth coming in, it’s one or two on the sides. He likes it when I rub his gums with my fingers to help ease the pain. We just feel so bad for him. It has also made him extra cuddly. No complaints here! Him napping in my arms is one of my favorite things.
His hair on his noggin is getting longer, which is so cute! It’s sticking straight up and is really soft
He still has eczema on his legs and a little on his arms. The Aquaphore still makes him feel a little better. His cradle cap is looking good but it’s not gone. Just a little on the top back of his head
Can sit by himself for short periods of time on his changing table
He is sucking and chewing on his thumb more and more
Jackson loves his bouncy toy! He sits in there and jumps like crazy. We call him the “jumpin bean”. The doctor said the toy is really good for him. It’s also making him burn calories! His legs are getting really strong.
His swing is about to be put away. He doesn’t really sleep in it anymore. When he sits in it, he tries to roll out. Obviously it’s not safe!
Because of his strong legs, he is also starting to scoot on the floor! We noticed it one time when we put him on the floor and he had moved to a different spot.
He is still a kicker! He kicks his feet like he is swimming which is funny
He loves watching what Hailey is doing. He gives her great smiles, which she loves too
Squeals when he is happy and excited
He still loves to talk. He also has laughed more! He is definitely ticklish on his ribs. I know just where to get him
He still loves to be sang to. I sing the traditional baby songs but of course Kyle likes to sing other random ones. I think Jackson’s favorite is the “You Are My Sunshine”.
Does a great job when we go somewhere. We went on a little trip to Target the other night and he just looked around at everything and didn’t make a peep
He has a loud cry! When he is upset, you will hear about it.
I love his long eye lashes
Happy guy! My friend Rachel made this onsie for him
I had to throw this one in there
The biggest news is Jackson can also roll back to tummy! He did it a couple weeks ago and now he can do it really fast. He worked really hard and finally did it one day. I even got it on camera!
Here’s him working…
He had the hardest time getting that arm out from under him
I have to add, little Jackson was working so hard that he let out some “toots”. I had to laugh. Of course I got them on camera too
Here are the videos…
He does it in this one!
Miss Hailey at 4 months!
