4 Month Baby Update

I feel like the last few months have flown by. I can't believe it's already 2016. I got so behind on posts with the holidays but things are finally more settled now. I can't believe how big Nathaniel has already gotten. He went from being born in the 30th percentile for weight and 50th for height to being in the 80th percentile for both.

- Talking, cooing, babbling and having people respond to him when he "talks"
- Sucking on his fingers
- Bath time, he's always super smily and happy after
- Pulling my hair, I'm seriously going to go bald with the amount of hair he pulls out
- Watching Tv, he will shift until he's facing the TV
- Car rides, he falls right asleep in his carseat, which is nice because I can take him out for dinners and shopping and he'll sleep the whole time
- Attention, lots and lots of attention, he'll smile and coo at anyone that gives him attention

- Laying down, he likes being sat up when he's awake
- Pacifiers, they just make him frustrated because no milk comes out
- Tummy time for extended periods of time
- His crib, he refuses to sleep in there
- Solids, we got the OK from our pediatrician but I've tried a few foods and he usually spits most of it out.
- Wearing shoes, he always kicks them off'

One of the few times I have of picture of him with shoes on, while shoe shopping ;) I wish they made baby Louboutin's, how cute would that be.

It's gotten increasingly difficult to feed him because he's so aware of whats around him, and he wants to look around and isn't focused on eating. He definitely is going through the 4 month sleep regression. He was sleeping through the night perviously but now wakes up every 2 hours to eat. I'm hoping to try to feed him more during the day so he won't get hungry at night. Would love to hear any tips you ladies may have.
I'm so sad that he's outgrown his cocoon. It was one of my most used baby products and I'm sad I haven't found a replacement. If any of you mama's have suggestions, I'd love to hear?

I feel so blessed to have such a happy baby. He rarely cries and only cries when he's hungry or needs to be changed, other then that he's super smile-y
In the last month Nathaniel has gotten increasingly drool-y, as you can see in these pictures. I assume it means he'll start teething soon.

I still can't believe how fast Nathaniel is growing up! He's seriously gotten so big in the last few months. I get so excited when he reaches a new milestone, like sitting and rolling over, but at the same time, I selfishly want him to stay little forever.

I hope everyone had a great new years!
