Spear is 4 Months Old!

Spear turned 4 months old on April 1st! I use What to Expect the First Year to see where he’s at in his milestones and development and I purchased his monthly stickers here ğŸ™‚

Spear wore Kye’s pants from his first Easter for his pics this month!

At four months old Spear is doing everything a baby his age should be able to do including: 

  • on stomach, lift head up 90 degrees
  • laugh out loud
  • follow an object in an arc about 6 inches above the face for 180 degrees (from one side to the other)

He can also do everything a 4 month old will probably be able to do including:

  • hold head steady when upright
  • on stomach, raise chest, supported by arms
  • grasp a rattle held to backs or tips of fingers
  • pay attention to an object as small as a raisin (but keep such objects out of baby’s reach)
  • reach for an object
  • squeal in delight 

He can also do everything a baby his age may possibly be able to do including:

  • keep head level with body when pulled to sitting
  • roll over (one way)
  • turn in the direction of a voice, particularly mommy’s
  • say “ah-goo” or similar vowel-consonant combinations
  • razz (make a wet razzing sound)…his isn’t as “wet” sounding 

He can also do most of the things that a 4 month old may even be able to do including:

  • bear some weight on legs when held upright
  • object if you try to take a toy away
  • turn in the direction of a voice

Spear cannot yet sit without support, nor do I really think he’ll be doing that for awhile ha!
