4 months old


Wow, time sure does fly!  I can’t believe Foster is already 4 months old!  This has been a wonderful month for Foster.  As I talked about in a previous post… this month was a much happier time for Foster as he continued to grow out of his reflux issues.  Rather than being fussy all the time, Foster now smiles constantly.  He rarely cries unless he really needs something.  He is such a laid back, easy-going baby now.  (Praise the Lord!)  He has become really good at holding his head up while on his tummy.  He loves to be on his tummy during tummy time and look around for about 20 minutes or so.  When he gets tired of being on his tummy, he just rolls to his back…. which brings me to his next trick.  He is now rolling from front to back and back to front on a pretty regular basis.   He also loves to be held in a standing position.  When we hold him straight up, he laughs… I’m not sure why it’s funny but it is to him!  As you will notice in several of these pictures, he has found his fingers and hands and they are his new favorite toy.  His hands are in his mouth constantly and I think it’s pretty cute.  In addition to smiling, he also started laughing this month.  I just LOVE that sound.  He has also started making raspberry noises with his mouth which he thinks is just hilarious- and it is funny to me too. :)  ON his 4 month Birthday I began to try to stretch his feeding intervals to 4 hours and he did great.  So now he eats at about 8 am-12 pm-4pm-8pm then bed.  I also do a “dream feed” at 10:30.  Some nights he sleeps through the night, but some nights he wakes up 1 or 2 times and wants to have a “chat” with mommy or daddy.  How can we mad at this face though, even at 2 am???
