Max is 4 months old as of August 10th. We had his 4 month appointment August 11th.
Max is 27.25 inches long! That makes him OVER the 95th percentile. He is so tall!
He weighs 17 pounds 1 ounce and is in the 85th percentile. I was surprised by this because he seems so big. It must be because he's so tall.
Max has to be to bed by 8:00pm. He has been doing this for awhile now, At least a couple months. By 7:00pm he lets us know that he is ready for his nightly ritual. He becomes a total grump!
We bathe him, feed him, read to him, and then he is out by 8:00pm. This is really nice! He then sleeps until 4:00am. Most of the time. I feed him and he goes back to bed for an hour or two.
The last 3 nights he has been sleeping until 5:30am. Then he is awake and doesn't go back to sleep.
Max is a morning person! He is so happy and smiley in the morning. Mom is not so much of a morning person. I like to sleep at least until 7:00am. That would be perfect! Max does make it easier for me by being a complete charmer in those early hours.
He's been doing really well with his naps. At about 2 hours after he wakes up he has to take his morning nap. I just lay him in his bed with his Binky and he falls asleep.
Max is a great smiler. He is so easy to get to smile. You just look at him and say "Hi Max" and he gives the best smiles. But to giggle, Well that takes work! It's so funny! One day he will giggle and giggle at something and then the next day you do the same thing and he looks at you like, You've got to do better then that! I'm bored. Hilarious!
Max is a really good baby but there are times when Shaun and I look at each other and say, "We might be in trouble." When he's mad he straightens his long legs out, points his toes, arches his back, tightens his arms to his side and growls, squeals, or cries. If he's in his bouncer he arches his back and straightens his legs so sudden that he slips down and about completely falls out of his bouncer. TROUBLE!
Max is also really aware of his two dogs. He loves to stare at them. When they get close to him he squeals with excitement or smiles and starts bouncing or kicking his legs. So funny.
He also does the same thing if I blow up pictures of Shaun and I on the computer. It's so cute. He gets so excited to see our picture on the screen. I love my little guy! He's so funny and adorable.
I love everything about him! Even his hairy back! So funny! And his pouty lower lip. It's cute he pouts out his lower lip before he cries or sometimes before he smiles! It's really adorable.
He keeps you on your toes not knowing if he's about to cry or smile. I prefer smile.
