I wanted to get this down before I forget. We had the boys well baby appointment today and they both grew and caught up a great deal.
Weight: 13lbs3oz (25th percentile)
Height: 24 1/2 inches (50th percentile)
He won't be on the monitor or prevacid any longer as he has outgrown the breathing issues/reflux...praise the Lord!
We started feeding him cereal last week and will continue for the next couple of weeks. We can then start introducing fruits and veggies. I cannot believe it's already time to start making food again! I will probably make a lot over spring break and freeze it so that I won't have to worry about it with the busy weeks of work coming up.
Weight: 28lbs8oz (50th percentile)
Height: 35 inches (75th percentile)
Head: 75th percentile
He didn't have to get any shots today, thank goodness
Both boys are in perfect health!!

I've been such a bad blogger. Life with 2 is very different when one as far as free time especially with work. And by time I get through with everything it's either too late to pull out the computer or I'm just too tired. On top of that I always like to have pictures with my post and I've lost/misplaced my camera card and the other one that I've been taking pictures on won't download onto my computer, urgh!
So here's a pictureless update:
The past 3 weeks both boys have been sick. I think between the two we've been to the doctor 5-6 times. They both had Croup and with Brody it then turned into a sinus infection.
Brody weighs 26 lbs and Jaxson was up 12lbs6oz.
We go to the doctor on Monday for Jaxson's 4 month well baby and Brody's 2 year well baby.
He's into everything! He's talking up a storm and his favorite thing right now are construction vechicles and the movie Cars. Everything is "I got it" or "I do it" He's becoming VERY independent which I love but at the same time I look at him and cannot see my little baby any longer. He's such a big boy! He can tell us when he has a dirty diaper so we are starting the whold potty training a little. I'm just going to continue to have him sit on the potty at home but then this summer the first week we are out I'm putting him in undies and getting him out of diapers! He loves his little brudder and seeing them interact melts my heart. He will rub his head, give him kisses, give him his paci when he's crying and hold his hand while watching tv. He will be TWO on Sunday and his party is Saturday. We are having a jump party. I cannot believe he is 2
Jaxson @ 4 months:
He is the sweetest baby ever! He cannot help but smile at you when you are talking and loves to babble back at you. He never cries unless he is hungry and loves to sit in swings. He is even sitting up in his bumbo and holds his head up. He's so strong that he tries to sit up on his own and can sit in your lap and hold himself up for quite some time. He LOVES watching his big brother run around and laughs out loud at Brody. I'm pretty sure he will be an early crawler and walker because he's so interested in what Brody is doing.
We fed him his first cereal this week and he really didn't know what to do with it. Half the time he was too busy smiling at me that the cereal would just drip out of his mouth. He got a little better the 2nd and 3rd time. I forgot how slow they eat at first compared to Brody who shovels it in as fast as he can. We will do rice cereal until 6 months and then start introducing foods. He has been sleeping through the night(knock on wood) since he was 7-8 weeks old. He usually goes to bed between 9-10 and wakes around 5 am to eat. When he's going through a growth spurt he will have a week of waking at 1am to eat. Easy breezy!
Clothes: 3-6 months
Eating: 4-5 oz bottles and still nursing like a champ with 1 time a day cereal(2teaspoons of cereal with 2oz of breastmilk)
Loves: to smile, swing and be snuggled
Brandon is finally done with basketball and only has one more sport left for the year (track)! I will be so happy when he's done for the year and we can have a normal/more calm schedule.
I will definitely be getting a new card for my camera so that I can capture these cuties. Will post Brody's 2nd bday soon.
