Lincoln 4 Months

The Lincoln-ator is 4-months old! 
He's getting bigger....
And stronger everyday!

Here's what 4-month old Linky-Link is up to:

  • Sleeps from 8:30 or 9:00 PM until 4:00 AM just about every night. (Yay!)
  • He is starting to put up a bit of a fight to go down at night. He goes right down for naps throughout the day, but when we put him down for the night it takes several rounds of crying and rocking and nursing to finally get him calmed down for his long nighttime stretch.
  • He has doubled in size! He weighed 12 pounds 10 ounces at his checkup! Way to go big guy!
  • He has yet to give a full blown laugh. He kind of grunts repeatedly when he thinks something is funny, but he mostly just smiles really big without fully giving into a laugh.
  • He is just barely starting to lift his head up at any kind of angle. He's made some big head control strides this month.
  • He is still a completely chill, go-with-the-flow, easy breezy, dream baby. 
  • He's a quick eater! He can nurse himself to a completely full belly in 10-15 minutes.
  • He's been my least spit-uppy baby I think because he put himself on a schedule eating smaller meals more frequently. He typically eats every 2 1/2 - 3 hours during the day.
  • He is starting to clutch onto my shirt, or my hair, so he's slowly on his way to grabbing for things but not quite there yet.
His cheeks may account for half his body weight. Eli was pinching Lincoln's cheeks together one afternoon so then we all pinched each other's cheeks with lots of giggles following each silly face.

The twins! Lincoln looks identical to all of Carson's baby pictures.

These silly boys already have so much fun together. I am so excited to see their relationships grow as they get older.

Happy Four Months, sweet baby!

Lincoln-ator? Is that what we're calling him these days? I love you saying he's your least spit-uppy baby giving your unsuspecting readers the impression that he rarely spits up. I know better. Your least spit-uppy baby is still a fountain of spit up compared to other babies I've known!

I love that Carson's squeezed lips look like a heart and the pictures of the boys in the ties are soooooo perfect. I love, love, love them!

This little baby is a doll!! Love you zooming in on his chunked-up legs and his fisted hands. I can definitely attest to the fact he is finally getting bigger.

Cute update. Cute boys. Cute mommy blog. Cuteness abounds.
