I can't believe my little baby is 4 months old. Everyone says enjoy the newborn stage because it goes by so fast but when you are waking up with him every 2 hours at night you think that stage will last forever. But it didn't and now he is sleeping around 10 hours a night waking up once for about 10 minutes to eat. He is smiling and laughing a lot which I absolutely love. He can now roll over from his back to his stomach. He loves it when I have him stand on my legs and he just starts jumping like crazy. He now weighs 15.6 pounds - 62%. It's no wonder I keep losing weight since I carry this little chubster around everywhere. He's in the 46% range for height and 90% range for head size. He's also the cutest thing on this planet! His doc said we can start giving him rice cereal and since he has seemed more interested in food lately, we decided to try it. Turns out he isn't into the idea of eating anything other than mommy's milk. Oh well, we will try again later. Here are some pics of his cereal adventure
I just got a coupon in the mail for a free baby carrier/sling. You just pay around 10 dollars for shipping/handling. I bought one because they were cute and free is just too good to pass up, however, I haven't received it yet so I don't know how well it works. I just thought I'd put it out there for anyone in the market for a baby sling. All you do is go to www.sevenslings.com and click on shop now. Click on slings and pick any sling you like. Make sure to look up the sizing so you get the right size. Enter the promo code "New Mexico" and they will deduct 100% of the price. Oh and you can also go to www.uddercovers.com to get a free nursing cover - just enter the the promo code "seven" and pay shipping. They are the good nursing covers too - the ones with the stiff neck so you can see your baby. Even if you aren't in the market for a nursing cover or sling they would be a great baby shower gift! Here is the sling I got!
Ethan had his spring break a few weeks ago and we jumped on the opportunity to visit family in Utah. We spent more time with my family over Christmas break so we thought it would be fair to spend some extra time with Ethan's family. But since my family was only 6 hours away and my Grandma has an apartment in Salt Lake, they decided a road trip to Utah would be fun. So we got to spend time with both families. When the time came to go back home, Trey and I were having too much fun and didn't want to go so we extended our vacation another week and a half. Ethan headed back to school and we kept on playing. It's hard not having any family around so any chance I have to visit with them I am going to take. I really want Trey to know both sides of his family and be comfortable with them. To help this process we also try to skype regularly with both families. Here are a bunch of pictures of our Utah trip.
