Atticus - Four Months


Height: 25.5" (75th %)
Weight: 15 lbs, 12.5 oz (75th %)


Diapers:  Yep, still exclusively in cloth diapers.


Sleep:  Sigh.  We are in the process of teaching Atticus to sleep using the "Healthy Sleep Habits, Healthy Child" method by Dr. Marc Weissbluth.  He is currently going to sleep on his own and waking 1 (sometimes 2) times to eat.  

Food:  Atticus is still exclusively breastfed.  We've decided to completely forego cereal, as neither of us believe it's nutritionally beneficial.  We've also decided to not feed Atticus "baby food."  We're planning to do baby-led weaning, and we don't plan on giving him solids until he is able to feed himself.  I'll do an entire post on that later.


Clothes: There is one Petit Ami outfit that is 0-3 months that he can still wear.  I typically dress him in shortalls or johnjohns, and they're usually 3-6 month.  He has a few 6-9 month outfits and a couple 6-12 month outfits that fit.  The 3-6 month sleepers fit but are getting snug, and 6-9 month sleepers fit great.


Atticus can roll over both ways.  He loves to play in his jumparoo thing.  He loves to pull on my hair and try to put it in his mouth.  He hates sitting down.  He'd prefer to stand.

Oh, how I wish this picture wasn't blurry. :(

He is still showering or taking a bath with Michael or me (well, me).  He loves water.

We took the pacifier away at 4 months old on the dot.  I've only given in and given it to him once since then.

Just for Ss and Gs, here is a collage of months 1-4.  He's grown up so much!
