Hey Jasper, you’re 4 months old today. Your Mama and I cannot believe how fast the time has flown and how quickly you are growing and progressing.
In the past few weeks you’ve been to Lake Chelan and Sunriver, OR. It’s a slow pace to get you up to loving to travel like Mama & Papa but we’re pretty sure we’ve got you on the right path.
You’re developing your own little personality; you’re holding your head up, coo’ing, smiling. You’re starting to grab things and suck on your fist. And we caught your first giggle on video (which Mama has watched “6 billion times”). You also love to pass the time on walks with Mama during the day and playing with your blue peacock named Jon. Even though you haven’t quite made it, you are so darn close to rolling over.
Today, we went to visit your doctor for your 4-month check up. After getting your DTaP immunization, we learned that you are now on the regular growth chart for a 4-Month Old after tipping the scales at 11lb, 9oz and being 24 inches long. We no longer need to use your adjusted age for plotting your growth (but you would be in the 90th percentile for length and 50th for weight if we did).
It’s been a learning experience for all of us for the past 16 and a half weeks, but we are so happy to be growing as parents as you grow into a little boy. We can’t imagine that we have ever lived a life without you in it.
