Numbers Game

Caleb had his official 4-month doctor's appointment this week, even though he is actually now 4-1/2 months old. It's hard to believe how quickly he is growing up! We were curious to know how much he has grown, and here it is:

Height: 25 inches (approximately 38th percentile)
Weight: 14 pounds, 6 ounces (approximately 27th percentile)
Head Circumference: 16.25 inches (approximately 16th percentile)

He has definitely changed from when he was in the 5th and 10th percentiles shortly after birth! We were kind of surprised about the head circumference, as his head seems so huge to us! But I guess all babies have big heads in proportion to their bodies. :)

He has started to occasionally grab at things, most frequently my hair! He always seems to have a few strands wrapped around his hands. He is spending more time awake now and enjoys his swing and pack 'n' play. He talks to himself and is learning to blow bubbles, which is so adorable. He drools like crazy and is getting the hang of sucking on his thumb, although sometimes he seems to prefer the whole fist. He laughs when we undress him (future nudist on our hands?) and sometimes when we move his limbs to "dance." We think he is the most precious boy on the planet! I will have to take some more pictures to post soon!
