4 Months Old

This month has been a little different with summer semester winding down and family events being over. So we've been able to have a little more time together and time to ourselves. Japheth has really grown/developed a lot this month. He's using his hands so much more, noticing everything in greater detail, and using his muscles. We had his 4 month check up and things are in order except that he has a little bit of what's called torticolis (a slight tightness in neck muscles to one side of the body). In Japheth's case it's on his left side. It's created a slight lopsidedness to his head. So we are trying some physical therapy for him to correct it and hopefully add more symetry to his head. He weighed 14 lbs. (50th percentile), height 24 inches (18%), and his head circumference is about 50%.
