4 Months Old!

Owen was 4 months old on Sunday...he's getting so big. We haven't been for his four month check up so we don't know his exact height and weight yet. However, thanks to Josh's aunt, Jeri, we have our own scales at home we can check his weight anytime. At his last weigh in, he tipped the scales at 12 lbs 13.5 oz.

Things you're doing now....

  • You're wearing size 1-2 diapers

  • You can still fit in you're 0-3 month clothes, but not for too much longer. You've started wearing a few of you're 3 month outfits

  • You started a new formula called eat about 3.5 oz every 3-4 hours

  • You're still sleeping in your pac-n-play in mommy and daddy's room

  • You love sleeping on your tummy

  • You've rolled over from your tummy to your back a few times. You did this for the first time with your Aunt Anna

  • You really like playing with your toys... the cow and dinosaur are by far your favorites

  • You've laughed out loud a few times...but you make us work really hard for those giggles

  • You smile at us all the just melts our hearts

  • You really like your've figured out the buttons that play music and love to push them until you're completely exhausted (really, you have fallen asleep sitting up in that thing)

  • You love music...Baby Einstein and Veggie Tales are your favorite

  • You're drooling ALL the time

  • You still LOVE your paci

  • You love to eat your can almost get your whole fist in your mouth, and sometimes prefer them to your paci

  • You LOVE splash the whole time

  • You coo all the time...we have to keep your paci in at church to keep quite

  • You love being outside

  • You've started riding in your stroller like a big boy

  • You love to stare at the writing/print on mommy and daddy's stare at it forever and try very hard to grab it

Owen is doing much better. We've continued to have some vomiting issues, so we've been trying to find a good balance between his feeding schedule and the amount of formula he's taking in. He also started on reflux meds last week, which seem to be helping a little. We have an appointment at ACH on Aug 10th, so hopefully we'll get some questions answered. We also plan to get an appointment scheduled with a GI specialist that can address some of Owen's digestive issues. Please continue to pray for Owen's health and for knowledge about his diagnosis.
