We went to the doctor yesterday. Cameron is a healthy boy. His stats are: height 26 1/4 (75-90%) weight 14 lbs 5 oz (25-50%) head 41.8 cm (25-50%). He is doing great, according to the doctor. He said he is on the right track and growing well. He had to have more shots yesterday and that wasn't fun. It is always hard to hear your little boy cry :(

On the fun side, he does get to start solids. We started that last night and he did very well. He ate it all! He was even helping me put it in his mouth. He would open his mouth for me and let me put the cereal in his mouth. Sometimes he would even grab my hand and lead it towards his mouth! I'm glad that we are already off to a good start.

Here are some pictures of him enjoying his first solids...

He is actually enjoying the food

4 months!!

Our little one is 4 months old! Well, at least this Friday he will be. Time has flown by so fast. I just can't believe that he is 4 months old. He is getting so big. We go to the doctor next week so it will be exciting to see how much he has grown. He seems to be having a lot of growth spurts lately. I feel like I am constantly feeding him. It is not fun and wearing me out.
He seems to be healthy. He hasn't had anything dramatic happen (knock on wood). He has had a cold and that wasn't fun, but luckily we stayed on top of that and it didn't get too bad. He got to help me make a Valentine's Day card for Tyler so we are excited to give that to him. I would post a picture, but Tyler reads this. Maybe I will post the picture after he opens it :)
I will tell you some of the things that he doing now:
  • talking all the time (cooing)
  • kicking his legs like he is running a marathon
  • getting better at tummy time - can actually lift off the ground now
  • sleeping about 11 hours a night
  • found his fingers - loves to suck on them
  • staying up longer during the day
  • liking books
  • loves the bears in his crib - we find him talking to them and smiling to them like they are his friend
  • smiles all the time
  • knows mommy and daddy well
  • starting to sign mom (it looks like it anyways)

He just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I love this little guy! He is the best thing that has happened to our family, for now. We are excited to see him grow. He is lots of fun and we love him lots.

Glad he isn't up all night :)
