4 months old – hard to believe that they are that old, yet difficult to remember what it was like before they arrived (although I think that I had a little bit more spare time, more sleep, and a lot less laundry). This first picture – they are both watching Juliana run toward them…there is a bit of fear in Ruslan’s eyes as he knows she is about to bounce down on the ground just a little too close to them.
Last night was their 4-month check-up.
Ruslan – Weight: 14 lbs 12 oz – 50th% (2-mo was 12-6 70th%)
Height: 24-1/4″ – 25th% (2-mo was 22-1/2 45%)
Wyatt – Weight: 13 lbs 12 oz – 25th% (2-mo was 10-14 25%)
Height: 25-1/4 – 65th% (2-mo was 22-3/4 50%)
At 4 months Juliana was the same height as Wyatt, but weighed a full pound less.
The boys are starting to interact more with each other – they are getting interested in each other – Ruslan will spot Wyatt and just smile at him in the hopes Wyatt will look his way. They are also able to pick-up toys and get them close to their mouth – the best place for anything at this age. And best of all they can both get a hand, some fingers or sometimes even a thumb in their mouth which makes them quite happy.
