Tommy turned four months old this past week.
At his four-month check-up earlier this week, he weighed in at 14 pounds 7 ounces and measured 25 inches long. His head circumference is 16.5 inches. Tommy’s numbers put him around the 25th percentile for weight and 40th percentile for height. His doctor was pleased with his growth progress, and everything else checked out well.
Tommy is well out of the newborn stage now. He does still have occasional “food coma” moments but can also polish off five ounces in a single sitting and be fully alert afterward. He no longer gets lulled to sleep by white noise (like the shower) and is so alert the entire time he’s awake. Tommy’s always been fairly alert but just grows more alert every month, focusing on new objects and faces at every opportunity.
