Fantastic Four Months!!!

my little monkey is now 4 months old! i can't even believe it! he has grown so much and changes everyday! i'm so proud of him and how far he has come since birth. he has always been such a strong baby. we had his 4 month check up last week. our pedi, dr bubba is amazing. seriously the best pediatrician ever! he's really sweet and always makes me feel better about the job i'm doing with jack. he said he's doing great. he told me to start trying out rice cereal. he said offer it once a day until he starts showing real interest. then offer it twice a day. once he's a pro at that, we can start fruits and veggies! it's hard to believe we're getting close to the baby food stage!! he also had to get more shots, which is definitely harder for me than him. i had to leave the room. i just can't stand to see that pouty lip and crocodile tears!! ben stayed with him. thank goodness for a strong hubby who can take it! dr bubba said at the 6 month checkup we'll talk about feeding jack pizza crust!! wahoo!

Jack's 4 month stats:
weight: 11 lbs 1 oz
length: 23 1/2 inches
head: 40 cm

he's in the 25th percentile for everything, which dr bubba said is good for him. he was 5 weeks early!

little jack,
i'm so proud of you. you are growing more and more everyday! you are the joy of our lives and we are so thrilled to be your parents. your favorite things to do are: stand up and look around, look at books, talk and coo, stare at lola, lay on your tummy and lift your head and blow spit bubbles! you started rice cereal and you absolutely love it! it's so cute to watch your face when you eat, you get so excited! you hate to be burped and throw quite the fit when we do! it's so much fun to watch you discover the world. you are a blessing and we love you SO much!! happy 4 months baby!
