4 Months

Dear Titus,
At four months...

  • You are now fully on formula as of 2 weeks ago because my milk supply wasn't enough for you. You eat 5-7oz every 3-4 hours
  • You sleep from around 8:30-6:30
  • You have 1-2 dirty diapers a day and 5-6 more wet diapers
  • You wear size 2 diapers
  • Your hair is... RED?!?! How did this happen? (see photo below...)
  • You constantly chew on your hands (you don't take a paci)
  • Your eyes are a grayish blue (like mine) but sometimes look a little green (like daddy)
  • You have learned how to grab your toes and they are your new favorite toy! You also grab your toys and recognize them as something you can play with (before you just watched them)
  • You seriously giggle and smile every second you are awake
  • You finally take most naps not being held! Right now you will only nap in your swing but I'll take it. You still dont have a nap schedule; sometimes you take 30 minute catnaps, sometimes you take 2.5 hour marathon naps.
  • You weigh 15 lbs
  • You take Prevacid twice a day (15mg) for reflux
  • You transitioned to your crib last week (you were still sleeping in your Rock n Play because of reflux) and have done fine with it. Now to transition you out of the swaddle because you keep breaking free and trying to roll over!
  • You roll from tummy to back and and tummy to side, but not back to tummy
  • You always cuddle with your Lovie blanket during nap time and love to fall asleep by rubbing your Lovie on your face
  • You know who mommy and daddy are and you recognize their voices from across the room
  • You still fit in 3 month clothes but are mostly wearing 3-6 months (although the neck holes are too small for your head)
  • You still love ceiling fans
  • My favorite thing about you is that you have dimples in your knees an elbows because you're so chubby (see picture below)
  • You wake up happy and talking instead of crying from hunger
  • You like to watch the tv
  • You have THE MOST adorable laugh!
  • Your favorite toy is the activity gym with the toys hanging over your head. You will lay on the floor and play on it for 30-45 minutes without a single complaint
You are seriously one of the happiest babies I've ever seen. Now that you have adjusted to life in this big, scary world you seem right at home. We are dedicating you to the Lord in two weeks and I could not be more excited to see what he has in store for you. I pray every day that Jesus would call you to His irresistible grace and that you would fall in love with Him as your mommy and daddy have. We love you so much, Titus James! I feel more blessed every single day that I get to be your mommy.



  1. Yay Titus! It was fun to see him in person, today! I'm glad to be reminded about what 4 month old babies are like ... right now I feel like that can't get here quick enough :)

  2. He's so adorable, Sarah!! :] I love reading your updates on what he's doing. How exciting!
