Parker is 4 Months Old!
Parker is four months old today and he has several new tricks up his sleeve in the last couple of weeks. First and foremost, he loves to stand up and talk as loud as possible. He cracks himself up when he squeals loudly and can hear his voice echo on our tile and hardwood floors. Its the sweetest thing to hear him in his crib in the mornings talking and giggling to himself. Always a great sign when your baby wakes up laughing instead of crying!
He is still a great sleeper, sleeping 11-12 hours each night. He's also close to being on a regular nap schedule. He wakes up between 7:30 and 8am and takes a nap from 9 - 10:30am most mornings. Then he also takes a good nap in the afternoons from 3 - 5pm. Bedtime is somewhere between 7:30 and 9pm, depending on where his feedings fall that day.
Parker is still gaining weight and has grown a full inch in the last two weeks, now allowing his feet to touch the ground in his exersaucer and jeep walker. He still a happy spitter and we can now add happy drooler to the list. Along with the chewing he does on his fingers, we've deduced that he is probably starting the teething process.
He also loves to watch TV. Not a great habit, I know, but it is nice to put him in his bouncer with the news on while I start dinner! More pictures to follow this week!
