4 months old

Okay, I know I said it last month, but I'm going to repeat myself this month and probably every month after until our boys are full grown men; our boys are so big! They are growing like weeds and it is kind of freaking me out. This month brought many different changes from last month and unlike obnoxious weeds, it has been really fun to watch them grow! Here are some things they are doing now that they are 4 months old:
-Laughing. I have gotten one hearty, belly laugh from each of the boys, and since then I have only been able to get little giggles. But their little laughs are just the cutest!
-Talking. Both boys talk and talk and talk, all day long. They have little baby conversations with each other and if mom or dad talk back, they just smile and keep on talking.
-Both boys fall asleep on their own and sleep for about ten hours every night. We are all feeling pretty good about that!
-They love their little blankets we put them to sleep with. When we put them down in their cribs, they each grab their blankets, bring it right up to their face and calm right down for sleep.
-They can hold their heads up! Both of them get really focused and determined not to let their little (GIANT) heads wobble. It is the cutest thing!
-Both boys love watching each other. If one is having a particularly fun time, they other will just sit and watch his brother.
-They are both reaching towards and grabbing toys!
-Their favorite toy is our brown and white blanket we keep on the couch. It has little tassels on either end and they get so entertained grabbing them and running it along their faces.
-Neither of them really cry when they wake up, I know when there are awake because I can hear them start talking.

-At his 4 month checkup, weighed 14 pounds, 14 ounces with his head in the 90th percentile. He was 26 inches long.
-Benjamin rolled over! He can roll from his back to his belly but gets a little frustrated when his little arms get stuck under his body.
-Uses his two middle fingers as a binkie and sucks on them to fall asleep.
-Sticks out his tongue ALL the time.

-At his 4 month checkup, weighed 14 pounds, 13 ounces with his head in the 98th percentile. He was 25 1/2 inches long.
-Miles Loves his feet and legs. He could be entertained for hours just kicking anything and everything he can get his little feet on.
-Miles has been watching his brother and has just started to find his tongue too.
-He can roll over with the help of the couch.

They love to eat and I think we are all excited to start rice cereal soon. Both boys are very happy and easy going and really only cry if they are hungry. The months go by fast, but each new month brings so many fun changes. We love our little boys!
