Growing Like a Weed!!

My sweet baby boy, Dalton, is growing like a weed!! Everyday, he does something to make my heart skip a beat or two.

His smile lights up a room. His funny "coo's" makes him laugh which makes me laugh. I don't think I could have asked for a better baby. Everyone who has met him has been in awe with his personality.

Well, last friday, April 16, Dal turned 4 months. In honor of his 4 month birthday, we went to visit our favorite pediatrician, Dr. Dickey.

Dalton got his well baby check and passed with flying colors just like he passed his Two Month Check

Brian and I are extremely thankful that we have been Blessed with such healthy babies. As a parent, healthy babies is one of the biggest worries.

Dalton also got the okay to start eating "food"... which we started on Sunday night. Yesterday, Monday, he successfully ate Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!! I am so excited. I hope he will soon start sleeping 9 hours or so through the night (he sleeps from 10:30 to about 5:30 now).

Here are his stats:
weight : 15 lbs 11oz (67%)
he at at 7:30am and it was 10:17 when he got weighed

length : 26.25 inches (88%)

head circumference : 41.5 cm (31%)

Bath time!! (wow... that face is a bit scary!!)

 That's a lot of  SHOTS!!

 He was sucking on my hand and then it hit...

 Poor little dude!! :(

Those pics are so funny! I wonder what the nurse thought of you taking pics while your baby was screaming...Lol.

Dalton's stats are almost identical to Blake's 4 month stats. Blake was a 1/4" taller and 3 oz heavier, but close enough! :) Now his growth has slowed down a little bit due to feeding issues (hate those). Anyway, he sure is a cutie!!

I think the nurses know when the "wild bunch" comes in that the camera is going to be flashing LOL.

I had the camera in my right hand, wrangled the twins with my legs and held D's hands with my left hand.

Thankfully, as soon as I scooped up Dalton the crying stopped!! Yay for tough boys.
