Henry Francis :: Four

Henry at 4 months is pretty great! He is super smiley, laughing, and starting to grab at toys. All of that *almost* makes up for how tired he makes me. He has also been sucking on his fingers, which is a first for my kids, and super cute. Just today he had been napping and was making some noises here and there, but not really crying. Charlie and I went up to peak in on him and he was just laying there quietly awake and sucking on his fingers. So cute!

Slowly but surely we are getting some extra milk in him, thanks to a generous friend donating some milk. He had a 1 lb weight gain this past month (compared to the 10oz gain the previous month) which was very great to see!

He is still super attached to mommy which is adorable and frustrating all at the same time.

Henry Francis :: Three

Henry turned 3 months last week on the 18th! He is super smiley and it's pretty much the cutest thing ever. Ever since he got his tongue and lip tie revised a couple of weeks ago he has been talking so much more, and he LOVES being held by mommy.

He is still a tiny little guy, but has been nursing better since the tt revision and hopefully that will help with his weight gain. He weighed 9lbs 10oz yesterday during our visit with our lactation consultant.

Here is my sweet baby at 3 months!

Henry Francis :: Two

Henry turned 2 months last Sunday. I can't believe it! He has started talking a little and is becoming more smiley. Sleeping is all over the place, but such is life with a newborn! I'd love to stay he's been an easy going baby, but he's been a bit crabby as of late. He gets startled so easily too, which is not a good thing when you have 3 older, and very loud, big brothers!

He has been slow gaining weight, weighing in at only 8lbs 12oz (7lbs 6oz at birth). We have been keeping a close eye on his weight. His pediatrician is so great and supportive, and is not super concerned just yet. Really hoping we can figure out what's going on, and get some chub on this little peanut!

Here is Henry at 2 months! And no, he doesn't have red hair. That's just the light shining just right off of his cradle cap.

All that tummy time tired him out!
