It appears that I'm running a full month behind, because today Jack actually turned 5 months old! So that inspired me to post about his 4th month.
He is growing like a weed. I always thought it was so cliche that "they grow up too fast." Seriously not cliche. Definitely truth. At his checkup, he weighed 15 lbs. 10 oz. and was 25 1/4 inches tall. I admitted to our very awesome pedi that I'd been feeding him cereal for some time since month 3 (he is a BIG eater), so she said I might as well start him on baby food. I guess that is considered solids? They seem pretty liquid if you ask me. Anyway! We went straight to the store and stocked the pantry with food for the young gentleman.
He is such a joy to both of us. This month he figured out how to smile for the camera, rather than looking at it so pensively when we bring it out. That's made for a lot more photo sessions, most of which get posted on Twitter or Instagram. Feel free to follow me there--my username is em_gentry.
