I was baptized today! Uncle Mike, Uncle Dennis, and Aunt Kallie are my new godparents. It was a great day, and, more importantly, I was great!! I smiled and didn't cry, and was way cuter than the other two babies and one adult that were baptized with me. Lots of family and friends came to see me and came to the brunch at our house afterwards, and lots of old ladies at church were giving me lots of attention. What a great Sunday!

My Aunt Emily was just delighted to be around me (then again, who isnt?)
My Aunt Rachel was pretty good at holding me too!

I was exhausted by the end of the day!!!

"Big Boy" & Happy Birthday Uncle Dennis

The doctor's appointment went well today, although I still havent gotten over having to have 4 shots (again!) in my little legs. Make that my "90th percentile legs." Yup- 90th percentile (also known as an A-) I'm growing like a weed:

Weight: 17 lbs, 6 oz (90 %ile)
Height: 26.25 inches (90 %ile)
Head size: 17.25 inches (85-90 %ile)

Let's keep in mind some basics

  • my infant carrier is only up to 26 inches
  • 3-6 month clothes are technically for smaller dudes; i.e. OshKosh size 3/6 month clothes for up to 16lbs and 26.5 inches; Carters is up to 25 inches, and 12-18 lbs. Luckily, because i am proportional, lots of this stuff still fits me.
  • I was only in the 75%tile last time, so I've grown lots!!
I look good otherwise, although i have one clogged tear duct. that's no biggie, and nothing compared to those shots (did i mention there were 4 of them?). I'm a bit tired and pretty cranky from it all, but I am hoping the infant tylenol will start to kick in soon. My next regular appointment is at the 6th month mark, but I am having a "travel consult" visit next month before we go to Thailand. If it means more shots, they can just leave me here. I don't want to see the elephants that badly.

Afterwards Mama, Uncle Dennis and I went to the Brookside Gardens for Uncle Dennis's birthday- he turns 28 (again). We're going out for dinner with him tonite too! [JUMP TO FULL POST]

a third of a year

I'm a happy 4-month old!

I love lip-synching...

I can't imagine why they say I might be getting too big for this carseat....

This is how I roll......

Being an infant is hard work...

i am officially 4 months old today. I'm still generally pretty happy, although I still have a little bit of that acid relux stuff. I have my checkup on Tuesday, so will have more details on the weight, height, etc then. I'm pretty interactive now- making a slapping motion with my hands if I want something- it's my way of saying "pick me up" or "more milk please" or "how come LOST is a repeat again!?." I also can ride in my stroller like a "big boy," which is great especially since i may get the news on tues that i am too big for my infant carrier (too long). I can put all my weight on my legs with my moms just helping me with balance. I can also soothe myself to sleep in certain situations, especially those including white noise, like the air filter or bathroom fan or running water. I still can't roll over completely, but I'm getting there. I do great at my tummy time, and can even keep my head up with one arm while grabbing for a toy with the other. i try to hold my own bottle, and sometimes can, but usually i fling it accross the room, just for fun. i get distracted alot when i eat, which can be frustrating for my moms, but hey- i dont want to miss anything! i'm in 6-9 or even some 9-12 month clothes (mostly length) and am growing by the minute. overall, pretty good for being out in the world 4 months.

Happy Easter everybody!

Happy Easter everyone! I had a great day today.
I learned about the wonderful world of Peeps, and Mama made some delicious cupcakes with them.
Poppy, Nona, Rick, Uncle Mike and Uncle Dennis came for a yummy Easter dinner that Mama cooked
The Easter Bunny brought me a basket with these cool shades and hat, and the outfit I am wearing, plus other fun things
This is what I wore to church. Mama thought maybe I should go play some Cricket afterwards.

Here comes Peter Cottontail...

*Note: I am not sure how I feel about the man that the Easter Bunny has apparently eaten...

16 weeks

I'm 16 weeks today- and what a week it's been! I have been eating all the time, and when im not eating, i sleep. My moms think it is a growth spurt or that i'm fighting a cold. i dont let it get me down- i'm still generally cheerful...

today i also got to meet the easter bunny and have my picture taken. hence the fancy outfit, complete with baby oxford shirt below. anyway, i didn't fuss or cry- just gave some cute smiles and then barfed all over the bunny. everyone was quite impressed. my moms will try to scan the pic tomorrow...
