Four big months

Charlie Baylor Pierce turned 4 months old this week!  Crazy! Relieving!  There is something momentous about his being 4 months old now - I feel like we can all relax a little.  He can sit up in a baby chair and hold his head up by himself.  He can grab toys from in front of him and put them in his mouth.  He can lay looking at something for several minutes straight.  So much independence! And boy does he laugh a lot!

We had his 4 month check up and here's the stats: 
15.10 pounds (52%), 25 inches long (45%) and I don't remember how big his head is, but it's in the 72nd percentile for his age :)

Here's our monthly monkey picture: not quite as adorable as last month but they can't all be winners. 

Look at the chubs on those legs!

Here's something noteworthy - we were given the okay to start giving him rice cereal so we did!  It's pretty optional at this age, but since we've had so much trouble with him as it is, we thought it was worth a try.  He loved it.  So much that at dinner he was getting visibly upset watching US eat and not giving him any.  AND....are you ready for this? HE DIDN'T EAT ALL NIGHT!  He slept from 10:30pm until 6:10am!!!!  First time ever!  It could be the cereal, or the probiotics kicking in, or the fact that we were outside almost all day yesterday or maybe the vaccines messing with him.  But we'll take it.  BIG FINGERS CROSSED!!!!  Let's do THAT again!
