Ashton is 4 months old

Can you believe it? I can't. Where has the time gone? Ashton is getting so big... Not just physically but developmentally too. He is chatty, social, loves his hands and LOVES to sit and stand. He has the sweetest personality and I can't get enough of him.

For record keeping, at his appointment this morning he is 27.25 inches tall (98%) and 15lbs 5oz (61%). He did so well with the doctor. Of course he chatted him up (he is already so much more social than Emerson was). He got an oral and had two shots and only cried for one of them. So brave!

The only things I discussed with the doctor were his sleeping and solid foods. In regards to solid foods, I am really in no hurry to drag all that stuff out (isn't that so lazy?!) so I think we are going to put off rice cereal for another month or so. While Ashton is sleeping 7 hours for his longest stretch, he still gets up to eat at 3am and then again at 6-6:30 and goes back to sleep for a couple hours. Even though Emerson was ready for sleep training at 4 months, I don't think Ashton is. He has NEVER gone all night without a feeding. Our doctor said to wait another month or so and see if he gives it up on his own. If he doesn't at that point he is most likely waking out of habit and we can go ahead and sleep train him.

This is Ash all the time lately... Two fingers in his mouth:)

Look at those eyes!
I had to post this precious profile. Look at those chubby cheeks:)

I loved squeezing his cheeks this morning. What a treat it is watching him grow up.
