Micah @ 4 Months Old

At four months old, Micah...
... weighs 15 pounds, 7 ounces and is 25 inches long.
... eats up to six ounces per feeding, and has started on jar food.
... is wearing size 3-6 month clothes, and size 3 diapers.
... hates being held like a baby, and usually fusses at you if you attempt to hold him laying in your arms.  Unless, of course, you are feeding him.
... attempts to sit up, if he is laying down, or propped on pillows.  He really wants to sit up like a big boy, and strains to do so, even though he cannot control his body well enough to sit unsupported.
... sleeps through the night most nights, and is sleeping in his own crib.
... is not rolling over.  He doesn't even seem interested.  He would rather work to sit up.
... still enjoys his baths.
...  chews on his fingers.  Sometimes he chomps down too hard on them, and hurts himself.  He fusses for a hot second before he goes back to chewing on his fingers.
... Still no teeth, but there are signs they're on the way, including chewing on his fingers and lovey, spitting, and drooling.
... is pushing up when he lays on his tummy.  It is so funny to see him laying on his tummy with his hands folded in front of him .
...is reaching for what he wants.  His coordination is still not the best, but he is trying and getting better at it every day.
... gave his first laugh.  He finds the silliest things funny, and since I enjoy seeing him smile and hearing him laugh, I try to oblige him.
... covers his face with his lovey, the sheets, or blankets.  For some reason he loves feeling them on his face.  It's disconcerting, because I worry about him suffocating, but he just puts it right back if I pull them away from his face.
... goes by the nicknames Toot, Gus-Gus, Chubba-Chub, Micah Maine (mommy), and Micah Man (daddy).

Here's how we ended a very short photo session.  Three pictures short.  He wasn't feeling having his picture taken tonight.
