I can't get enough of him

Random thoughts for the day.

Seriously, I never thought I could love someone this much. Carter is one of the best things to ever happen to me. I miss him when he's sleeping, not to mention when I'm at work all day.

He's such a great baby. He's been sleeping through the night (not every night, but most of the time) and in the mornings I go into his room and walk up to his crib and he's just full of smiles. I then take him to go wake up Grant and he smiles some more. It melts my heart every time.

When I go to pick him up after I get of work and he sees me, he smiles and my heart melts some more. And the way he looks and Grant and I is just so precious.

He's sleeping right now and I miss him. Is it weird to miss someone who is in the other room? Because I do it often. I just wanna wake him up so I can see his cute little smile and hear is adorable little giggle some more. But I won't, he needs to sleep. lol.

I love this little boy more than anything in the world.

My new look

Did you see that my blog looks a little different? It's not perfect yet but I just wanted to play around in Photoshop and see if I could even do it. I'll spend more time on it one of these days to make it how I want it.

Carter likes to try and hold his bottle. He's actually been doing this since he was about 2 months old but he's getting much better now. And as you can see in this picture his eyes are still blue. There's a little chunk of brown in his right eye, I thought for sure they'd be brown by now. Grant's eyes are a lighter bluish-gray and my eyes are dark brown. We'll see what his turns out to be. I'm hoping he gets Grant's eye color.

Carter has been sleeping great. He sleeps through the night about half the time, the other times he'll sleep until 5:00 or 5:30 which is right before we have to get up so it's not bad. And he's going to sleep like a champ. We still have no problems, he's able to fall asleep on his own ever night without a problem. We have such a great baby.

I love you Carter!

Carter is 4 months 2 days old

4 month appointment

Carter had his 4 month appointment on Friday and here are his stats;

length: 23 3/4" (up 2 1/4" from month 2)
Weight: 11 lbs 5 ozs (up only 1 oz from month 3)
Head: 41cm I think (whatever it was it was perfect the pedi said)

So as you can see from the above Carter has not gained enough weight. The pedi said it's probably because the pneumonia that he got at about 3 months. She said that the fact that he grew in length is a good sign. She wants to see him back in a month instead of two like usual to check his weight.

His head has grown great though. If you may remember from his two month appointment his head was bigger than average and she said that as long as it grows consistently it's fine. And it did so that's good. And his length is growing consistently also.

Because he needs to catch up on his weight the pedi said she'd like us to wait until he's 5 or 6 months old to start solids. I'm more than fine with this. Solids are not for nutrition, they're really just to introduce babies to different tastes. There's no reason to rush solids so I'll keep him on 100% formula until he's at least 5 months.

And I'll leave you with some pictures;

I love this outfit. My mom bought it for him yesterday.
