We refused the Hep B in the hospital when Baby was born, but we're now scheduled to get his first round of vaccinations at 8 weeks.
What are your opinions about delaying a baby's first round of vaccination until age 3 or 4 months?
Are there any pros or cons you can think of?

Before giving any vaccinations you need to do your research and be fully informed. Check the link below for a sheet to help you do some research. IMO pertussis is about the only thing they really need and that is only under the age of about 12 months old, but that vaccination was also the one that scared me the most after I did my research. This is a very personal decision that you need to make for your family.
The second is a link to a selective vaccination schedule to help you out if that is the route you chose.
