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.

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

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!
