Silas is a hard worker!

The last few days Silas has worn himself out in his bouncer.
The first tome he conked out Josh got out the camera.

I really didn't have the heart to move him, but I did and it woke him up.

We have also been venturing into fruits and veggies.

Silas loves sweet potatoes! They are his favorites by far!
He also enjoys apple sauce and prunes!
He is not a big fan of pears or peaches yet.
Our next try will be squash and then on to carrots and peas!

Oh the things he can do!

On Tuesday last week I woke up to see my baby on his tummy! I thought maybe it was a fluke, but after I fed him and put him back down for the rest of the night he did it again!

I haven't caught him rolling during tummy time yet, but I'm watching him lots to see if he'll prove me wrong!

He is scooting himself around though. He has been using his strong legs to kick and propel himself backwards. He isn't quite able to do it on him tummy though. All of his scooting has been on his back.

Silas is also slowly growing out of his 6 month clothes. There are several onesies and sleepers that are just too small. It seems like I just put away all of his 3 month outfits!

Four month appointment

We had Silas' four month appointment last week.

He is 26 inches long and weighs 14lbs 15.8oz.

He is now in the 90th percentile for height and 75th percentile for weight.

Over all Dr. Jones is very pleased with his growth and the milestones he is making.

I told her about his dislike for rice cereal and she said to keep trying at it and also to start introducing stage one fruit and veggies. So far we've only had apple sauce and rice cereal. Mema gave him pears last night and he wasn't sure if he liked them or not.

Here is the video of us feeding him apple sauce.

His bedtime routine is more or less the same, however he tends to fall asleep earlier and wakes up earlier now. Most mornings he is up around 5 to eat and then lays back down for at least an hour before getting up to play. This is without his swaddler because the wiggle worm can now roll over and we don't want him to be stuck without his hands to help him.

some recent pictures of Silas!

We took this last week on his 4 month birthday
