Catching Up ...


Seems we have a bit of catching up to do... I will probably do this over a few posts so as not to write an entire book at once. Hmmmmm, where did we last leave off? I think it was the 2 month update! That's pretty bad being that Brody is now almost 4 months old. His 2 month appointment was a rough one for Mom. He got his shots... 4 of them at once. I cried, after hearing him scream, it was SO hard. I am dreading his next appointment at the 4 month mark, where he has to get 4 more shots. He started sleeping through the night completely right at 2 months also, that has been SO nice. Now if he would just learn to do it in his own bed, we'd be good... he currently prefers my arms as his sleeping place of choice. At his appointment we found out that he is in the 95th percentile for length at 24 inches long, and the 50th percentile for weight at 11 pounds, 11 ounces. He didn't have an appointment at the three month mark, so I know he's grown a lot.. but I'm curious to see by how much. In clothing he pretty much skipped the 0-3 month size. I would try clothes on him from that size range when he was still wearing newborn, and everything was so wide. Then all of the sudden none of the newborn onesies would snap anymore and neither would the 0-3... pretty much the same day. Luckily for us, 3-6 month is pretty much the same in width as the 0-3, just a few inches longer which helps. So for now he's in mostly 3-6 month clothes, although we have a few 0-3 outfits which fit him okay thankfully. I was really bummed we blew right through that size, because he had a lot of really cute stuff that he only got to wear once! We are enjoying every moment with him, but I already think he's growing up too fast.

It's about time that you got caught up ; )

What a big boy! Carter was that way in length too...but not 95th percentile...I think he was 26in at 5 months...
It does go so fast. The twins are already trying to crawl!...anyway it's great to see you posting again...can't wait for the next update : )

okay let me try this again...I seriously thought that you said he was 26in at the appt. Okay so maybe he is about where Carter was...he was 26in at 4 months(I had to look at his baby book)...anyway I know what you mean about the cute outfits "he only got to wear once", Carter was chubby too so we almost had to skip the 3-6months too or at least some of them...where does Brody get his height? I haven't seen his daddy yet, wait how tall are you? I know eventually Carter will be taller than me...probably as a teenager...I can't wait ; )

The mailman maybe? LOL jk... neither Sean or I are tall. I'm only 5'6'', and I believe Sean is the same. :) Hopefully he'll grow into his length some.
