4 months old

TJ just recently had his 4 month checkup. He is getting so big. He weighed in at 16 pounds 4 oz, which means he has doubled his birth weight already. He was 24 1/2 inches long. He is already rolling over from his back to stomach and just recently started rolling from his stomach to back.. I think he is going to be a lot more active than Camo. He still eats about every 3-4 hours and wakes up at least 1 or 2 times in the night. I can't wait until he sleeps through the night. I could use a full nights sleep. He takes great naps during the day. We just recently started him on rice cereal and he likes it okay. We tried sweet potatoes tonight and he seemed to really like those. I wanted to start him on baby food in hopes that he would be more full at night. This may help him to sleep through the night. He also just recently discovered his thumb and loves it. J and I aren't quite sure what to do about it. We are nervous because I was a thumb sucker and had a hard time breaking the habit. We like it because it helps soothe him. He absolutely hates the binky so we feel this is our only option. He is super smiley and very chatty just like his brother. We love him so much. I just realized I have not taken hardly any pictures of the boys lately. I promise to have lots more pictures on his 5 month update.

We had a great Halloween this year.. We started the Halloween week out with carving pumpkins. We didn't get into as much as we did last year. Jordan attempted an Oregon Duck helmet, but only got halfway through. I carved a pumpkin with stars and a moon. We didn't get any pictures of the finished product. Then the day before Halloween we went to the ward trunk or treat. Does anyone else agree that ward trunk or treats are mad chaos? I think Camo enjoyed it though. For Halloween this year Camo decided to be Thomas the Train and TJ was a giraffe. TJ used Camo's costume that Camo wore when he was 9 months old. Kind of surprised me that TJ could fit into it at 4 months. On Halloween night we first stopped at the assisted living home that my mother-in-law works at. The residents like to pass out candy. Camo scored lots of candy. Then we got some pizza and headed over to my sister-in-law's house for some trick or treating. Camo was super excited to go trick or treating. He kept up with his older cousins at the beginning but soon ran out of steam. He still ended up with lots of goodies.
