4 Months

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 // by alicia

Here we go! 4 months already. I know I say this every time, but he is growing up so fast!

He had his 4 month checkup – everything is looking’ good! Here are the stats, taken December 9th:

Weight: 15 lb 1 oz – 34%
Length: 27″ – 97% !!
Head Circumference: 42 1/4 cm – 61%

Um, can we say TALL?? I think the nurse patted his numbers though, at least on the height. I measured him after she left and I got 26.5″, so… .5″ difference, but still. He is freakin’ tall. His height is mostly in his torso I think. He is wearing 6 month shirts but is still in 3 month pants.

He is just so fun to play with. He just lights up when you give him smiles, or really just hold him. He’s talking up a storm, too.

He loves to sit in the Bumbo (thanks to Jen for letting us borrow hers).

We moved

Happy 4 months to baby Emmett! I imagine Alicia will be doing a post on that soon. I’ll spend a few minutes and talk about moving.

We moved. Again. For the 4th time in 2 years. And it’s going to be the last time for several years. Alicia and I made sure that we had the house pretty much packed up for when everyone showed up to help on Friday morning, and we were able to load up trailers, transport to new place, and unload trailers in a pinch over 2 hours. Great timing! Thanks everyone for all the help, we’ll now spend the next month unpacking. All that’s left to move is a few odds’n’ends at my parents house, and then the last straggling boxes from our storage unit. It feels really nice to feel settled. Our little place in Alpine was a nice but temporary stay – it was too small to stay in for very long, and with that always in the back of my mind it was hard to fully commit to the neighborhood and the ward. We’re done being transient, so we’ll approach this new neighborhood and ward with a more long-term commitment in mind. Next time we move it will be into our own place that we either build or buy – but right now I’m not feeling any hurry to do that!

Tomorrow we take off for Disneyland, so I’m sure we’ll have some fun stuff to write about when we get back! Adios!
