Sleeping it Off

Zzzzz....I went to the doctor today for my 4m well visit and I was assaulted with 3 pokes and one dose of yucky stuff.  I've been sleeping a lot of the day. I cannot believe Mom signed the consent for for all that torture. 

I am 17 lb and 26 inches tall. That means I've grown 4.5 inches and I'll have doubled my birth weight very soon (I started at 8 lb 15 oz).  Amazing what I can accomplish in one quarter! I can now hold my head up well, put things in my mouth, drool, make spit bubbles, and make a whole range of cute sounds. I smile back at people.  I'm also really good at diaper blow outs. I no longer mold myself "treefrog" style into someone when they hold me.

Doc said to wait until 6m to introduce me to solids so Mom and Dad have a little bit more time before I start making food messes. I mainly nurse, but I get some formula too.

I'm still sleeping in Mom and Dad's room in my bassinet, but I'm getting quite big for it. During the night, I like to listen to crickets on the iPhone.

I'm off my Zantac and doing fine.

Sleepy dude.

Feeling Corny

On Saturday, Mommy and Trent took a Day of the Dead art class. They learned about the holiday and got to decorate their own skulls.

On Sunday we went to our first dog birthday. Bella across the street turned 4, so she had a park doggie playdate. Lucky her- we haven't done anything for Betty turning one yet.

We also went to our first pumpkin patch of the season.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!

Halloween 2017

This week Alden turned seven. We went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa for an Outback dinner. This was the birthday of Nerf.

We had a great, active Halloween weekend.
