Four months with Adler

At Adler's four month check up, he weighed 17 lbs. - and measure 26.5 inches. That puts him in about the 85th percentile for weight, and 95th percentile for height. 

Like I mentioned last month, we are really starting to discover Adler's personality more and more every day. Here are some things we've learned about our little man in the four months he's been with us:

- Adler will talk, but only when the room is quiet. He doesn't like talking over people or noises.

- He needs alone time. When he's had enough people interaction, he'll get a little fussy. We lay him on his activity mat, and he enjoys being there by himself.

- He gets overstimulated easily, especially by noise. He'll enjoy playing for awhile, but after a few minutes his hands will start shaking, his eyes get really big...and the calming down process has to start before a breakdown begins.

- He's very curious and doesn't want to miss out on anything. He fights sleep, and when he knows you want him to fall asleep, he won't make eye contact with you. He loves to look around the room, especially if you carry him to the window so he can watch the leaves on a tree.

We're excited to see how his personality develops as he grows up!
