Back and forth

Well in the past month or so Davis has perfected his ability to roll over both ways. He has been rolling belly to back for a while but he started rolling back to belly about 3 weeks ago and has gotten pretty good at it in the past 2 weeks. If you put him on his back, he rolls to his belly. If you put him on his belly, he rolls to his back. He's a squirmy little guy. Did I say little? Skinny is a good description for him. A couple weeks ago Davis turned 4 months old. We went to the pediatrician for a check up and got his stats.

4 month stats:
Weight: 13lbs 2oz -----> 16%tile
Height: 25.25in -------> 62%tile
my tall skinny guy!

A friend of ours let us borrow her bumbo seat and Davis has really really enjoyed sitting in it and playing with toys that Lily so willingly brings to him. He also likes to play in the entertainer that another friend of ours lent to us. He is quite the engaged and active guy.
I have tried to start rice cereal a few times in the past month and have failed each time. How can you fail at feeding your baby rice cereal? well I will tell you. First of all when I put the spoon with the cereal on it in Davis' mouth he just sits there and smiles while all of it drains out his mouth and down his shirt. Clearly not interested. Secondly, what little amount he does swallow seems to upset his tummy pretty badly because he has some serious sleeping issues on those nights. We are getting about 11 hours of his sleeping a night and on the rice cereal nights he sleeps for about 4 wakes up cries for an hour+ and then goes back to sleep to do the same thing again later. SO, a good number of my friends suggested trying oatmeal instead of rice cereal. We did that last night and he still didn't eat a ton of it but he didn't have tummy issues which was GREAT!

So, that is the update on my little man. He is so happy and loves EVERYONE. He will give smiles to anyone who will pay him attention and he absolutely adores Lily and of course she adores him in return.

Here are a few of the professional pics that we got done of Davis at 4 months.
