The Baby Diaries: 4 months

We missed our 3 month diary entry because July was such a busy month. But that didn't stop you from growing and learning new things!

You are now 4 months old. How time has flown! You are most definitely not a newborn any longer.

You weigh 10lb 110z - still on the very petite side and putting you in the 0.4th centile, but perfect in every way! How many times have I had to persuade the healthcare assistants at the clinic that there's really no need to be concerned by your slow weight gain? You just like to do things at your own pace!

You are, however, in the 50th centile for your length. Long and skinny... I wonder who you're taking after!

Your slow weight gain is pretty much the only slow thing about you though. Not long after you hit 3 months, you rolled over and not content to stop there you are already desperately trying to crawl! You get so frustrated with your nose buried in the carpet and your legs pumping furiously that I can't leave you alone for two minutes without you getting overly distressed. It doesn't stop you though, as soon as I flip you onto your back, you roll over to try again!

You have more hair now and most of the time it looks quite fair. Although every now and again we'll catch sight of that red tinge. Only time will tell.

You can now interact with everyone you meet. You like to show off with your beaming smile because you know it provokes quite a reaction from passers by!

You babble away to yourself and can hold a 'conversation' as we take it in turns to 'speak'. And you are just learning how to laugh.

Your grip is super strong and can be quite painful when you get some skin in your fingers!

You have learnt how to take Mummy and Daddy's glasses off their faces which you think is great fun! What you don't understand is when you do, it just means we can't see your beautiful smile. :0)

We moved out of Grandad and Grandma's house this month so you now have your own room. It's not quite ready for you yet though so for now you're in with us. But we like you there anyway!


  1. That's such a lovely time, enjoy every moment #PoCoLo

  2. Such a great idea to do so you don't forget stuff - wish I had done it - might do a monthly one now they are older #pocolo

  3. Thanks, ladies. Can't believe how fast time goes!
