I was starting to wonder if it was possible I was feeding too much, but according to this article it's not. Also, all the weight/age stats are for bottle fed babies, not breast fed babies, and that makes a difference. Bottle fed babies have a steady increase, where breastfed (specifically 'on demand') babies gain lots in the first 3 or 4 months, then plateau. Often bottle fed babies actually get bigger than breast fed in the end.
LeoB is now singing along when we sing to him.
He also joins in conversations. He makes his vocalizations when other people are talking. He's started to talk to his toys, alone, too!
He's definitely teething. Jason dubbed him Crankenstien. We're using an amber necklace, and homeopathic remedies so far. They seem to calm him quite a bit. No baby Tylonal yet. I can feel a bump, bottom front and centre! A drooly guy!
He's SO close to sitting up with no assistance. We have a Bumbo seat that he seems to like, although he looks pretty darned funny in it.
He's figured out grabbing, but hasn't quite figured out hand mouth coordination yet. He's not able to hold on to much either, so he's not able to hold anything to help with teething.
