Dobby I know right? I cannot believe P is less than two weeks away from four months.

P is rolling a lot from her belly to get back and very close to rolling from her back to her belly. She is giggling all the time and babbling up a storm. She also does this fake cough thing to get my attention.

She is grabbing toys now and takes her binkie out of her mouth and puts it back now. She is also holding her own bottle (although not well).

If any of you guys the wonder weeks she is in the dead middle of leap 4 and we found she cannot sleep if she doesn't have her zippidee zip on... She is also going through the stage where my DH comes home after work and she sees him and starts crying. I know it hurts his feelings but since I'm home with her during the day all day she gets so much of me.

Awww that sounds awesome! P is really growing! Sorry about her crying at the sight of DH . A used to do that and now he rolls off my tummy to get to SO r_r.

Still no rolling on a flat surface. He can get to his side going both ways but canít quite figure out the rest haha. We have a pt appointment on his four month birthday so iíll Ask her about it then

Wonder weeks says A has 32 more days in this leap and the sleep regresssion is getting progressively worse

It's hard when babies cry because of your spouse. A went through a brief period where he'd be inconsolable when DH held him. Luckily he has a flexible schedule and is able to spend a good amount of time around him. A does prefer me, and selfishly I kind of like it when he smiles the most for me, but he also grins at DH now. It takes time. And babies/kids go through so many stages of preferring one parent and then the other.

Dobby, I'm sorry about the cold! Sounds like your A is making strides in the rolling department.

I managed to get A on video launching himself out of his pillow and crawling halfway out. But he's a small guy! He's only about 24 inches long (sometimes 24.5 but that might be wishful) and about 15 pounds. For a 4-month-old boy, that's in the low percentiles. I have a lot of short people on my side and I'm only 5'1" so it's not a shock. He's clearly healthy and happy and I know that's what matters. But people can be so negative about short men that it bothered me a little. Then I read a lot of studies about how shortness doesn't matter as much as we think and confidence is what matters, so I'm vowing to focus on that even if A stays in the low percentiles.

Still, my older DS grew so quickly and was in the top of the charts. I almost want to start solids but it seems like it's best to wait till six months if possible. I do have sweet potato ready to go if he shows interest.

Second- Elliot sounds about the same as A. At his 4 month appointment he was 14lbs 10oz and around 24". Which I find so weird because my older son is huge (tall) for his age- 20 months and already 36".

Wow, it sounds like they're almost exactly the same size! And I'm so surprised by it too -- my older son was about that size at nine weeks and A. is eighteen weeks now. I guess every baby is different. I know I'm nursing him about the same amount as I did my older son. Did your pediatrician seem concerned at all? I know four months is pretty young and there's a lot of time to hit a later growth spurt, but if he stays little I'll be OK with it as long as it's healthy!

Nope, they weren't concerned at all. He was born decently small (6lbs 7oz) so going by that he's gaining good. And he's got some chubby thighs.

P is such a peanut compared to most four month olds. She's somewhere between 11 and 13lbs and she's around 24in tall. All my nephew's and my neice were all peanuts too though...

Sorry for not responding A has croup again for sure

He was 13lbs 13oz (though 4 was probably from just eating because Friday he was 13lbs 4oz). His four month is Tuesday so I hope we get the go ahead to stop fortifying

Can't wait to hear how the appointment goes.. I'm sorry to hear about the croup 😔

Ps four month appointment is next Friday the day after Thanksgiving. We are doing family pictures that Sunday so I'm hoping she does well for those.

Afm, I am officially down 40lbs since giving birth.. and since I only gained 26 during my pregnancy I'm lower than my pre pregnancy weight!!! I'm still losing with this new eating and diet program even with my thyroid staying to climb again from my hashimotos...

Congrats, gag! That must be a good feeling to find a weight loss plan that works for you. And the growth charts are pretty different for boys and girls, so it sounds like your little girl is growing fine.

Fading, that's great that they weren't concerned! If he started out a little more petite, it sounds like he's putting on weight really wonderfully. My A. was a big guy, 8 lb. 4 oz. at birth, but then he just went sliding down the chart. I'm going to ask his pediatrician tomorrow. I don't know what else I should be doing, maybe making more of an effort to feed him even if he's not expressing interest?

Dobby, I hope the croup clears up! How hard to deal with it again.
