TJ: Four Months

Well, another month has flown by.  The difference between this month is HUGE.  TJ honestly looks like he could just walk to someone or at the very least crawl to you.  He is not your average 4 month old in size.  In fact, I just had to get rid of all of his 3-6 month clothes and bump him up to the next size.  Some of the 6-12 month clothes already barely fit him.  He's very long and very strong.  I finally gave up on his 6 month sleepers because he kicked so hard the other night, he unsnapped all of the bottom snaps on his legs.  I guess he wanted his legs out? =)  

He is the best sleeper I have ever seen.  He normally goes from 6pm-6am now and it is abnormal to get up at 2-4AM now to feed him.  It's INSANE but we love it of course. =)

Feedings are getting more regular.  He is consistently eating 7-8 ounces every 3-5 hours.  We're going to start him on cereal this month since he is so interested in watching us eat.  I can't wait to see what he does with this!  I think he'll enjoy it.   Now on to the stats!
