John Fletcher at 4 Months

 And suddenly...he's four months old!
 At four months, John Fletcher weighs 13 pounds, 2 ounces (25th percentile).
 And is 25 1/4 inches long (50th percentile).
This month has been an especially intense bonding time for baby and me. I find my heart actively being knitted more closely to his each day. What sweetness!
 John Fletcher is still a very happy little munchkin, even keeping good spirits through his recent illnesses.  When he's well, he is a great sleeper...sleeping at night from about 8 PM to 8 AM, with a dreamfeed and a 6 AM feed thrown in, and taking either two or three naps a day.
He enjoys watching his Baby Mozart mobile, sitting in his Bumbo seat, being entertained by his brother, and listening to music.
He is very ticklish and erupts in giggles whenever I lotion his chest or button clothes up to his chin.  He also giggles at deep voices and loves being talked to.
He finds his mother too slow with the passy (the plight of the second child!), and has learned that he's quite happy to make do with his thumb.
Your father, your brother, and I love you so much, buddy boy!  Happy four months!
