This month Kai turned 4 months.
Here’s an update of any achieved milestones and progression from his last update.
Kai is really starting to come into his own. We are noticing that he is putting on the weight (not that I’ve taken him to be weighed). I find that if I carry him for any length of time my arms feel the strain he is what I would refer to as a “Chunky Monkey”!
Now that he is appearing sturdier Max seems to be less aggressive towards him. He now loves him, sometimes a little too much. In the past few weeks I have caught him:
- Feeding Kai a rich tea biscuit (Kai didn’t seem to mind)
- Try to pick Kai up (with sound effects)
- Shove a dummy into Kai’s mouth
It doesn’t happen often but occasionally I will them alone.Never for longer than a moment.
As with Max I have started weaning Kai now that he is 4 months. I’m aware guidelines say 6 months but it is my personal preference to start at 4 months. We have started with baby porridge, he loves it. He actually screams for the next spoonful.
Something tells me he will love food like his big brother.
We are trying to fit in moire TUMMY TIME and this is coming along nicely. It’s tricky to get as much time down on the mat with a toddler running around. Luckily Kai has very strong neck muscles so I don’t expect him to take to long to master this new skill.
We are witnessing a big personality from Kai. He is very gobby and doesn’t shut up (just the way we like it). Overall he is a very content baby. Don’t get me wrong he also has his moments, just like any other baby.
We’re still attending Baby Yoga at the local childrens centre. He actually partook in the whole class last week, the first time since we started this term.
There is no sign of him siting unaided or rolling yet. Not that I expect there to be, he is still quite young.
We are getting through 8 oz of formula, every 3 – 4 hours and he rareky naps during the day. We dont mind too much because he sleeps during the night (I know which I perfer)
We are all settleing into some kind of routine.
Getting to know all about each other. Im really looking forward to the coming months, theres so much in store to come.
For now I plan to enjoy all of Kai’s baby charm for one day soon he will be a toddler and I know only too well what a challenge that can be.
