Graham is four months old!

     This is super super late (Graham will be five months old tomorrow), but I figured I should post it anyway. He turned four months old just a few days before Christmas and we visited family for two weeks so I just got completely behind and didn't have a chance to write anything up for a while. I will try really hard to get his five month post up in a more timely fashion. But I'm not making any promises...

       Graham still eats every 2.5 to three hours like clockwork. He eats four to five ounces at every feeding. He still gets really mad if you try to burp him before he's had a couple ounces as if we regularly starve him. 
        Pumping is going okay. I got mastitis over Thanksgiving week so my supply suffered some from that and hasn't really come back completely. 

Graham is on a schedule during the day. He will typically go down for naps about an hour and a half after we wakes to eat. This is helping in getting him to fall asleep faster and without too much fussing. At night he generally falls asleep sometime around eight and then we try to feed him once more before we go to bed. He typically wakes up about twice during the night and early morning. He is still sleeping swaddled. 

Other Things I Want to Remember: 
      Graham wears size 3-6 months. He wears size one diapers when he isn't in cloth. We are pretty much in cloth full time now which I enjoy. 
      He has a pretty good amount of hair still, though it is rubbing thin on the back on his head (see photo below). His eyes are still blue.
       I am still amazed at how talkative Graham is. He coos a lot and "talks" to us. He is for sure really smiling now and he laughed for the first time while he was three months old. 
       Another milestone reached during his fourth month was the ability to roll from back to front. He rolled that way for the first time on December 4. 
      While he was three months old, Graham got RSV. It wasn't a very bad case and he did not have to be hospitalized or anything, but it was really rough on us, especially since he had just gotten over the whooping cough. 
      He enjoys music and really loves when I sing to him.
      He likes being on his playmat for limited amounts of time and enjoys looking at the toys hanging overhead and in the mirror. He does really well at tummy time and can hold his head up well. Since he can roll over, he typically does not stay on his back for long. He prefers to be held, but will play for a pretty good amount of time on the floor by himself.
