So...I blinked sometime between today and April 22nd and totally missed Jackson's 4th month. I kept saying to myself that I would post his 4 month stats tomorrow night...pushing it off day by day until...boom...Jackson is 5 months old!!!
So lets first..tonight..focus on Jackson's stats at 4 months and then HOPEFULLY I will get around to posting about 5 months sometime before he turns 18 years old!
Jackson weighed 15 lbs 10 oz and was 24 1/2 inches long. I am sure he is much heavier and longer now but I was SOOOOO happy to see that he is gaining weight splendidly!!! He is still nursing anywhere from 6-10 times per day but he is taking a little longer in between each feeding. He still was having trouble turning from his front to his back and he HATES being on his stomach. In fact he hates it so much that he has developed a flat spot on the back of his head. He always likes to lay on his back. The doctor wants me to be doing some neck stretching exercises to help his muscles pull the plates back in the right spot. He absolutely hates those exercises and I feel like I am torturing him when we do them.
This month Jackson started noticing EVERYTHING his big brother is doing. Matthew really does pay attention to Jackson too though. In fact, Matthew will wipe spit up, sit Jackson back in his swing upright (if he falls to the side) and tickle and entertain him. We got the Bumbo seat out for Jackson to start using (I figured it couldn't hurt his flat head) and he was sliding to the side and Matthew came running in the kitchen screaming (very upset I might add) "Jackson's hurt!!! Jackson's hurt!!!" I love seeing how much they are starting to care about each other.
Happy 4 month birthday little Jackson!!!
