Four Months

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
At his 4 month well check, Cullen weighed 13 pounds, 8 ounces and was 26 inches long.  This boy is long and skinny!  But he is finally starting to get some adorable little leg rolls...I love them!(Based on our scale at home, he is now about 14 1/2 pounds...only about 2 weeks later.  That is some serious growing!) 

What Cullen is doing these days:

Rolling from front to back.  I was home from work with him one day and he flipped about 10 times in a row.  I'm glad I thought to take a video of it, because he didn't flip for Corey until about a week and a half later.  Apparently Cullen does not do things on demand; he will do them on his own time.

Laughing out loud.  This is my new favorite!  The things that make him laugh the most are zerberts on his belly and lots of kisses on his neck.  He definitely ticklish like his mommy.  He starts laughing if it even looks like I'm going to get near his neck.  Silly boy!

'Talking' All. The. Time.  Just like his Daddy. ;) Seriously.  Between Cullen and Corey, I don't think I'll ever get a word in again.  He babbles on and on; sometimes like he's telling you something funny that happened earlier, and sometimes like there are some serious issues that need to be taken care of and this is no time for'd better listen to what he has to say.  

Nursing like a pro.  We had some issues in the beginning and were pretty confident I was just going to have to pump and bottle feed for a year.  (Which wasn't the most convenient, but at least he was getting my milk.)  About a month ago though, something clicked and Cullen figured it out.  Leaving the house is so much easier now!

Putting everything in his mouth.  Toys, books, blankets, bibs, fingers, arms...   If he can get it to his mouth, he is going to chew on it.  And he drools everywhere.  We go through at least 3 bibs a day, usually more.  Early stages of teething?  Or just experiencing new things?

What Cullen likes:

Flying super hero style.  It amazes me how quickly he can go from fussing to laughing when Corey lifts him in the air.  

Being naked.  As soon as the clothes and diaper come off, he flashes the biggest grin he can.  He loves it!

Looking at pictures.  Of people he knows, people he doesn't know, and especially himself.  i think I'm going to make him a book of pictures to look at.

Sitting and standing.  If Cullen is awake, he wants to be sitting up.  If you try to lay him down, he does sit-ups and gets all red-faced.  I can't believe how close he is to being able to sit on his own.

Tummy Time.  Now that he can roll over, Cullen actually enjoys being on his tummy again!

What Cullen doesn't like:

Baths.  He doesn't cry or anything, but he is definitely not amused.  We try to make it fun with toys and splashing, but he is just not a fan yet.

Burping.  He hates it.  Most of the time, I don't even try. 

Once again, I am amazed at how quickly time flies!  Pretty soon, we will be attempting solid foods...I feel like that is a huge step!  I hate to be 'that mom', but he is growing up way too fast!  I love how much fun we have together, though!

Bonus:  Look at this cutie in his hat and shades!
