Four Months

Win turned four months old last week. I'm late with this post because he had a doctors appointment today, and I wanted to add his stats. He weighed in at 17 lbs 11 oz, and measured 26.5 inches long
He is up 3 lbs and 2.5 inches in last two months.This baby is giant! He’s in the 95th percentile for weight, and 90th for length. Everyone jokes that he stores it all in his chunky thighs.

In the last few weeks, Win has mastered the art of grabbing. He is now very interested in toys, and loves to pull whatever he manages to grasp into his mouth. He has started drooling a ton and always has his fingers in his mouth, which makes me think he might get his teeth on the earlier side, like Eleanor did (he first broke through right at 5 months). He has started laughing a lot and loves his sisters antics. She can always crack him up with a silly dance or a tickle.

He is still a pretty happy baby on average. Our only problem area right now is the car. He absolutely hates being in his car seat, and he screams pretty much the entire time. When I put him in it he gives me this pitiful look like, "No Mama, don't do this to me again," and starts crying immediately, then the moment I open the door to unbuckle him he is all smiles. Luckil, we don't have to drive very often--usually just once or twice a week to run errands. I try to keep our car trips to the minimum, and still do as much walking as we can, which we all prefer anyway.
