Avery {4 months}

I am finally caught up! Only two weeks late! Hopefully from now on I can keep up with monthly postings.

{4 months}


We have not gotten an official weight since his 3 month appointment but know that he is definitely packing on the pounds. On the bathroom scale, he weighs in at just over 14 lbs! Our scrawny little newborn has morphed into a baby with chubby cheeks, arm and leg rolls and dimples on his hands and elbows.

Within one month he outgrew all of his Newborn sized clothes and has almost outgrown his 0-3 Month sized outfits. 


Avery still sleeps a solid 12 hours every night. He is typically in bed by 6 PM and then is up in the morning between 6 AM and 8 AM. He typically still wakes up twice to feed but has gone a couple nights with only a single feed around 2 AM. Every once in awhile he likes to surprise us by waking up at 5 AM...

Naps are still all over the place. Although he has developed a consistent habit of going down for a nap with in two hours of waking up in the morning. We usually take fully advantage of this nap for at least one of us to go back to bed for a nap ourselves.


Avery continues to be impressively strong. He can stand with very little assistance. He loves his excersaucer even though he can barely reach the ground with his feet. We are getting excited for him to be able to use a jolly jumper soon.

He still dislikes tummy time but is getting better at it. He has started to work on rolling from back to front. He makes it about 3/4 of the way over and then rolls back. I think it is because he remembers that he doesn't like being on his tummy...


Avery has the best laugh and smiles. There is nothing more rewarding then when he sees one of us and his face lights up. Or when you are able to get him into a fit of giggles with tickles or raspberries.

He is constantly studying the world with his blue eyes wide open (often forgetting to blink while he is at it...). He loves watching the world from the window, or even better, being outdoors, especially amongst the trees.

Planning our next vacation... he picked Argentina...

Likes: the bath, being naked, walks, being outside, singing songs, airplane rides, standing, Mylo the cat

Dislikes: tummy time, bottles, 30 C+ weather, sitting still, face washes from Jersey


Avery went on his first plane ride! We took him to San Francisco to visit with David's university roommate Eric, his wife Yuko and their one year old son Christofer. Avery's first "international play date" as the border service agent described it! I will do a detailed post on our trip soon.
