Devin's Data: FOUR Months

Weight: I guess 13.5 pounds

Height: I guess 24 inches

Clothing Size: 0-3

Diaper Size: 2 (he out grew 1s fast. I was tired of exploding diapers all the time!)

Milestones: recognizes and responds to Devin and Baby Bunny, eats solids, cries tears, turns to loud sounds, multi-syllable jabbers, puts everything in his mouth, stands while holding on to something, laughs, working on his "pincher" grip with thumb and index finger

Eating: he nurses when he first wakes up then after his nap enjoys rice cereal and bananas. He likes his cereal thick and will eat a lot. He really enjoys bananas and eats about one small/ normal sized banana per day. I have no idea how much cereal he eats or milk from nursing. But before bed normally around 6 oz of expressed milk in a bottle.

Sleeping: Devin is a great sleeper and he sleeps in his crib in his own room. He normally goes down at 9-9:30 then sleeps until 6 on weekdays and 7:30 on weekends (he hears Daddy up getting ready for work on the weekdays and wants to join him). He goes back to sleep for about 2-3 more hours. Then normally three more good naps throughout the day.

Communication: Baby Bunny found his lungs. He screams now and thinks it is hilarious. He also cries big alligator tears (and has the entire past month) and it just melts my heart. He talks ALL the time and always has a story to tell me.

Likes: chewing on his hands, playing with the plastic linking rings, sitting up in his walker, standing (this would be a love!), going for walks and seeing the world, cuddling

Dislikes: when Mommy is working on something else and not giving him my undivided attention, cereal if it is too cold or thin

Nicknames: Baby Bunny, Squawky

Most Memorable Moment(s): eating cereal for the first time and then trying bananas, watching General Conference for the first time, hearing his sweet laugh, standing up against something (laundry basket or couch) by himself

Hardest Part: cleaning up rice cereal--the stuff should be renamed to edible glue!, trying to decide if Devin is still hungry and wants more or if he is full

Lisa's Favorite Part: every morning (seriously every!) I wake up and tell Casey how excited I am because I get to spend the whole day with Baby Bunny. On the weekends I excitedly exclaim that we get to be together as a family the whole day. I don't know how to explain it but this is definitely my favorite part!

Casey's Favorite Part: hearing him laugh and watching him stand up
