Harper is 4 months old!

I cannot believe how quick Harper is growing! He had his well baby check-up this week. He weighed in at 15 lbs 4 oz (6.9 kg) which puts him into the 56th percentile for weight and he was 26 inches long (66 cm) which is the 84th percentile. (He is longer and heavier than Andre was at 4 months.) He is a good baby, but quite demanding as he wans to be held most of the time. He doesn't fall asleep unless he's in the car, or if I hold him upright and outward and bounce with him anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour and a half until he zonks out (hence I visit the chiropractor :). He doesn't sleep through the night yet, but I have been working on him a.k.a. plugging him up with the binkie all night - he seems to be coming around. He is a smiley baby and loves his brother Andre. He loves to watch Andre do silly things and laugh at him. (If I try to copy whatever it is Andre is doing, he generally gives me a courtesy laugh or doesn't laugh at all.) As of 2 days ago he learned to roll over from back to front, and now does it all the time. He doesn't seem to hate tummy time anymore thanks to my persistence.

We love our little Harper and are always excited for the new things he does each day. What a blessing he is to our family!
