Triton 4 months

Late again...but here is a little bit about our 4 month old Triton.

At 4 months, Triton...

...has managed to develop pretty solid head control despite rarely being forced to "exercise" with Tummy Time.

...weighs 14lbs 1oz and is 26.5 inches long. Apparently this makes him 25 percentile for weight but they must use a different scale for boys because he is definitely bigger than either of his sisters were at this age. Also he is 90 percentile for if he looks tall to you, it's because he is! still a very happy smiley baby (when he's not plagued by gas. Poor kid gets majorly sad then toots like you wouldn't believe! Then Aahhh! Sweet relief!)

...loves to munch his fingers. And slobber. Is he teething? Who knows, but the slobber is intense! In the words of Hibou, "mom, he's bubbling on his shirt!!!" getting pretty good at grabbing and holding things and even getting those things up to his mouth. The girls applaud any time he successfully picks something up.

....eats whenever he wants. Probably every 2 hours, but whose really keeping track?

....takes 2 or 3 naps (on those days when we are home and I actually put him down for naps...which isn't often) One is usually 45 mins and the other is longer. The 3rd when it happens is usually a quick 15 min bedtime nap. 

...goes to bed around 8 and gets up around 7 give or take. With a few breaks in between. The past week it's been a lot of breaks but I am hoping that is related to his cold and not a regular habit so we won't bother with those sleepless details :-) still very adored by his sisters.

I love these kiddos!
