4 Months

Little Wesley turned 4 months old a few days ago. He is growing like crazy! At his checkup, he was in the 75th percentile for weight and 95th percentile for length. I guess this explains why he is already wearing 12 month size clothes. I looked up Molly's stats to compare them, and she wasn't this long until she was 10 months old.

His colic is getting better and I think it mostly stemmed from his food sensitivities. Nursing him, I just have to be absolutely sure not to eat any dairy products or we will sure know it the next day. I think he is also possibly allergic to nuts and/or soy. I would like to start supplementing him with formula or at least to have it as a back-up in case I can't be there every 4 hour interval of his life, but with him having so many digestive issues I'm afraid it may do more harm than good. The doctor gave us some soy formula to try, so we will have to give it a shot sometime when we have nothing planned for the next couple days (in case it doesn't sit well with him).

We sure do love our little Wesley though. He is really kicking and discovering his feet, playing with toys, making all kinds of baby noises and putting everything in his mouth. He can roll up onto his side, but hasn't made it over yet. His hair is getting a little thin on the sides and back, but on the top I've already trimmed it twice and it just keeps growing and growing.
