4 Months

Its been forever since I have posted. Things are really busy. I forget how hard it is to be a working mom with an infant. Both Davis and Samuel are doing great. We had a really good Christmas. We drove to Baton Rouge to visit Chris' grandmother. It was her first time seeing Samuel. She smothered him with kisses. Both of the boys got way too much for Christmas and now I am trying to figure out where we are going to put all of the new toys.

Samuel turned 4 months on Christmas eve. Here is a picture from that day. Its not great but its the only one we got as we were rushing to get out of town that day.



He had his 4 month check up today. He weighed in at 15 lbs 15 oz. in the 75th percentile. He is quite tall - 26.25 inches (the 90th percentile) and his head circumference is 16.5 for the 25 - 50 percentile. The doctor said he is doing very well and cleared us to start solids. They want you to do cereal with a spoon rather than adding to the bottle so we'll probably see how that goes this upcoming weekend and next week while I am home from work while Chris is out of town. He got two shot. He seems to be doing pretty well so far. Sleeping was going great. I actually got three days in a row of 7 - 8 hours but he seems to have lapsed back into the every few hour habit since we've been home from Baton Rouge. I am hoping he goes back to the other soon.

We have the same carseat! I can hardly carry it, it's huge and heavy. But very nice.

And funny, I have several pictures of Colt with the same expression!
