Seriously cannot believe that Jace is 4 months old!!! We had his check-up last week, and all this time I've thought that Jace was the chunkster of the 2, but he actually weighs just over 2 ounces more than Reid did at this age (Jace - 15 lbs. Reid - almost 15 lbs. At 4 months of course, now he weighs about 30 lbs.). However, what makes Jace seem heftier is that Reid was almost 27 inches at 4 months and Jace is 25 1/2 inches. (Although, percentage wise, he's 50th for weight and 70% in height and the doctor thinks he's going to have a big growth spurt, so we'll see). Jace is definitely not a newborn anymore! He is quite the "talker" and he LOVES when people talk to him. I think he might be our social one. :) He was doing awesome at night (7-8 hours) but has recently gone back to 4-5 hours. But, I can't complain because he goes to bed around 7 or 7:30, and all I have to do is swaddle him and lay him down (still in the bassinet in our room). He's also an excellent napper and will take 2-3 hour naps in his bassinet...when we're home that is, if we're out, he sleeps in his carseat. We can't imagine our lives without him and he brings so much joy to our family. Here are 2 recent pictures of him:
We took Reid to see Santa at the Villages of Allen and surprisingly there were no tears and no fits. Reid loved it! He told Santa that he wants a train table for Christmas (currently in our attic waiting to be put together). I love how Reid is holding on to Santa's hands. We've had a fun, busy December (and it's only half-way over?!) but I'll hopefully get some more posts from October/November and first part of December.
