Happy Four Month Birthday, Little Bear!
Our wee cub is now officially no longer a newborn. At least I think. I believe the first three months are really the “newborn” stage and after that a small creature remains an infant for a while and a baby a bit longer after that on the road to grown-up-personhood. He certainly is growing into a personality and is more person-like and less fetal by the day.
He has his official four-month checkup on Friday so I’ll have weight and height stats then. I did want to document, though, that today he had his first haircut. Josh took a pair of clippers to the back of his head. I know in pictures it certainly doesn’t look like he had hair long enough to cut — he doesn’t have much hair at all. But in the back, we had an issue. He had rubbed a bald spot right on the back, but then below that he had a pretty thick thatch of hair. Sort of a back-of-head soul patch. It looked ridiculous. You can almost catch a glimpse of it in the picture below (we forgot to do an official Before and After shot).
