Elijah's 4 months checkup

Elijah had his four months checkup today and here's how our little man's sizing up:

12 lbs 15 oz
24 inches long
head: 16.25 inches

He's looking good! I can hardly believe it's been four months since this little guy entered our lives, but it's true what "they" say: I couldn't imagine life without him now!

He's into so many things these days, I thought I would give you an update:

Elijah loves:
  • kisses
  • holding on as tight as he can to anything
  • Mommy & Daddy singing to him
  • trying to mimic what we do
  • looking in the mirror
  • watching every move Jazz makes
  • his Daddy!
  • standing up as long as you'll hold him
  • kicking like crazy while he's laying down
  • bathtime
  • being outside
  • being naked
  • making "ooh" faces

Elijah's schedule:

  • Right now he eats around 8am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm, 8pm everyday.
  • He sleeps from 8:30pm until about 8am. A dream sleeper for his mom and dad who aren't fans of waking up early in the morning!

Elijah's favorite songs: (well the ones we sing him that seem to keep him calm or make him smile, so we stick with them!)

  • The Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • The Wheels on the Bus
  • Jesus Loves Me
  • Head & Shoulders, Knees & Toes
  • Blessed Be Your Name
  • Orphans of God

Elijah's favorite toys/activities

  • laying on his jungle gym "thing"
  • any teething keys he can get his little gums on
  • his puppy blankie

Elijah has just started really laughing in the last few weeks and I LOVE IT! He's not too generous with his laughs yet, so that means we get to do some pretty funny things trying to get a laugh out of him!

He's a precious gift and we are so thankful for what a blessing Elijah has been in our lives!
