Ward at 4 months

Somewhere in the crazy that was December, Wardie turned 4 months old!  He is an incredibly handsome, happy little guy. 

A couple nights ago, he was laying on the floor on his back in the living room, and the rest of us were around the corner in the library.  He started to cry, so Eric peeked around to check on him and was surprised to see him on his stomach!  He had rolled over.  We all clapped and cheered and danced around proudly.  Well, the next day Amos went to Eric and "confessed" that he had rolled him over for tummy time.  According to Amos, we were all so happy and excited he didn't want to ruin it for us.  So, no, Ward isn't rolling over yet.  Why learn when you have someone else to do it for you?

Ward still loves to be swaddled.  I am serious, he demands it.  This morning Eric called him a snuggle monkey, and that pretty much sums it up.  He loves to be comfy cozy in his swing.

The jury is still out on who Ward looks like, though most think Maggie.  His eyes are brown, and it seems like they might stay that way.  That's new for us. 

Ward is continuing to grow well, though he's still on the runty side:

Weight: 12 lbs, 9 oz (5%)
Height: 24 in. (10%)
Head: 39.8 cm (7%)

As you might remember, his height was in the 2% last check-up.  His skyrocketing to the 10% gives me hope that I might get to be a basketball mom after all ;)
