Kelan is growing so fast. I hear people say this all the time, but I really think they grow exponentially the more kids you have. I can't believe the things he is doing already and I'm just not ready for it!
He's been able to roll around for a while front to back and back to front... but now he's rolling and will go clear across the room if he doesn't get stuck somewhere first. It's still a little surprising to him because he'll roll and then look up and have this surprised look on his face, like how did I get here?!? Pretty soon I think he'll master it and will find out the possibilities of being mobile.
He's learning how to grab and hold toys now too. This is really fun for the three older kids because they can be a little more interactive with him.
I took a photo of his video monitor the other day while he was asleep. He used to want to be wrapped up so tight and now he wriggles his little arms out.
Sleep is a bit of a struggle right now partially because of this. He's not used to having his arms free and sometimes will scratch his face or pull his binky out accidentally. As soon as he transitions to not being swaddled at all, I think it will be much easier.
He's drooling and chewing on his hands so much right now. I'm thinking that the long teething process has begun already. It is not so great to have 2 kids teething at the same time! Cohen's eye teeth have just popped through on top and nights have been rough with him lately too.
I thought this picture was funny of Cohen's face in the background...
Like, come on Mom! Quit with the camera already... he's not that cute! Kelan's drool is visible in the photo above too.
Kelan had his 4 month well-check with his pediatrician just after Christmas. I was anxious to see how much he'd grown. I was shocked to find out that he's a little guy now! He's just 13 lbs 11 oz which is only the 10th percentile and his head is only the 10th percentile too. He's 25" long which is 50th percentile. He was 50th percentile across the board at his 2 mo appt, so I'm working on making sure he's getting enough milk these days. Otherwise, he is a healthy and happy little baby and I'm grateful for that!
While I had the camera out, I snapped Cohen's latest obsession:
He got this movie in his stocking and loves it... too bad our original copy of the Cars Movie is all scratched up and not viewable because this one is just a few little short stories. We're excited for Cars 2 to come out!
