We’re at the point now where we can look back on old photos of Remy and say “look how little he was!” And I know that’s only going to be more obvious as time goes on, but seriously how is he already 4 months old?
Remy is almost 15 pounds now and he’s 25 inches long! He had his 4 month shots the other day and his doctor says he’s doing great and we even started talking about introducing solids in a month or so. We’re so not ready to start feeding him real food, but are also really excited about seeing his reaction to veggies and stuff. His shots were pretty brutal this time around and he ended up spiking a fever afterwards. I knew he’d eventually get a fever or get sick, but I guess I didn’t prepare myself enough for it because I had a total first time mom moment and freaked out. After lots of Tylenol and snuggles he’s returned to his happy state (and I’m still kind of recovering).
I know when I did the two month update I complained about how Remy never slept through the night, but since then he’s the best night sleeper ever! He sleeps about 7 hours straight now and only wakes up around 5 am to eat. It’s pretty damn nice! Unfortunately on his 4 month birthday on the dot he’s started the dreaded sleep regression and wakes up about 3 times a night again. Fingers crossed that he’ll give us those long stretches again soon.
He’s really grown up in the last month, he grabs at things now (and sticks everything in his mouth) and he can see things like the kitties. And now he actually smiles when he sees us just cause he likes us! I also started watching my 1 yo nephew during the day and he looves to watch him run around and he’s usually trying to catch a smile from him-it’s one of my fav things to see. He still hates the car seat unfortunately so when we go out it’s really discouraging but everyone keeps saying he’ll eventually be cool with it.
It was this time last year that I found out I was pregnant with Remy. My sweet smiley 4 month old was just a little cell then and I had noooo idea what I was missing out on. Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. And we’re not religious by any means but Ricky and I started dating on Christmas and I found out about Remy last year so to say I’m excited would be an understatement!
