4 months old and going strong...

Jonah just got home from his 4 month well baby check-up, and the Dr. said he's doing great! He did very well for his appointment, considering it was in the middle of his morning naptime and considering he received his second round of shots (2 in each leg--ouch!) He weighed in at 16 lbs 4 oz., and measured 26.5 inches tall! He's in the 70th percentile for weight and the 90th percentile for height. He got the go-ahead from the Dr. to start rice cereal any time in the next two months. I think we'll hold out until the 6 month mark or until he isn't satisfied with milk alone. At four months, Jonah has learned how to 'talk', laugh, grasp toys, play with his hands/feet, roll from tummy to back, push up with his arms during tummy time, and most of all how to make his mommy and daddy smile! He loves to play and suck on everything and anything he can get to his mouth. We are thoroughly enjoying the stage he is in right now and we're looking forward to the stages to come. He is such a blessing to us, and we are thankful for how well he is doing.

Love you both,
