Four Months

Briggs is 4 months old.  He is so happy, so smiley, so easy, so fun!!  He weighs 13 lbs, measures 25" long, and is wearing his 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.  He eats every 3-4 hours during the day.  He usually takes 2-3 naps, going to bed around 8:00 p.m.  He is now sleeping in his crib at night, and was sleeping 8-12 hours at a time for most of this week.  However, he's woken up every 4 hours through the night for the past 3 nights.  He has also only been pooping every 5-7 days with his latest record of 13 days ending yesterday.  He continues to spit up amazing well and often, and is starting to drool frequently.   (Maybe you don't have to poop when it's all coming out the other end.) 

Drool on the chin can't keep this little guy from looking cute, though.

Likes:  Briggs is generally a happy, easy baby.  Bath time is still a favorite, and he always enjoys time outside.  He loves to be talked to, lighting up whenever he gets attention.  His sisters love to make him laugh and smile.  Favorite toys include his play mat, his spinning alphabet ball, and rattles.  He still loves music, primarily the songs that Zach plays for him.  And his right thumb is his constant companion.

Loving that thumb!

Can't beat a little outdoorsy time on the beach

Dislikes:  Briggs fusses when he is hungry or tired.  He apparently also gets fussy when he's in the car on the way to Michigan and when he hasn't pooped in over 11 days.  Otherwise, not much gets him down.

Skills:  Briggs has rolled from his back to his stomach successfully once, but consistently rolls from his back to his side.  He rolls from his stomach to his back occasionally, but not consistently.  He moves all around when he's on his stomach and his back, working his way off his play mat and all over in his crib.  He is great at tummy time, and can sit up with only a little bit of support.  He's doing great reaching for and grabbing things.  He'll hold rattles and toys, and is consistently grabbing his ever-present burp rag and bringing it to his mouth.  He can also activate a few of his simple cause and effect toys.  Briggs is a talker, making lots of cute coos and sounds.  He also has the cutest little laugh, and finds many things in life amusing.

Life with Briggs is just so much fun!!  What a great 4 months it has been!!
