Garrett is 4 Months Old

June 19, 2010

Garrett turned 4 months old Wed and we had his checkup Thursday. I though you all might to hear how he’s growing. He weighed in at 15 lbs 14 oz, which is the 75th percentile for his age (down from the 85th percentile last time). He is 25 1/2 inches long also in the 75th percentile (up from 50th percentile last time). His head circumfrence is 16 1/2 inches at 45th percentile (about the same).

Garrett is a busy little boy. He is very interested in toys and grabbing things. Last night I was holding him in my lap while eating rolls for dinner and he kept trying to grab my roll and eat it. He got pretty close a couple times. 🙂 He is very close to learning to roll over onto his tummy – he gets very close and just needs to learn to swing his legs over. He’s a very happy, smiley baby most of the time and so much fun!

Kalyn is doing great, as well. Right now she is very interested in insects. We often have a few ants exploring by our back door (we can’t seem to get rid of them but they’re really not a big problem – there’s hardly ever more than a handful) and she loves to pick them up and have them crawl on her hand. We have a community garden plot and she loves to see all the bugs while she is there. She also was in a “Curious Twos” class (a 1 hour class a couple times a week for 2 year old with art and songs and stuff) and the theme for the 2 weeks she was in was insects, so she had a lot of fun with that.
