He will go in for a 4 months check up not too long from now. He was about 15.5 at his last check-up, so who knows what to expect at this one. They may tell me he weighs more than I do...which would feel about right. He is not just solid, but he's long, and got big hands and feet. I'm not exactly sure where this kid came from. My other two are definitely more on the petite side. Merrick especially. Maybe God knew they will need someone to whip them into shape, or at least he will need some muscle to defend himself from the eldest hooligans.
He is doing lots of cute things, like babbling and trying to grab things, sitting up in his saucer and laughing at us. He is not a fan of sitting contentedly and playing, but insists that there be someone looking at him most of the day. (Thankfully it doesn't always have to be me...but adoration from just about anyone will do. And since he is pretty adorable we usually let him get away with that.) He also has recently started "yelling" at us if he needs something. Not crying, giving you a tongue lashing in baby talk.
I feel like he will be ready for some real food in the very near future, since big ol' men cannot live on formula alone. (I think the other two started around 4.5 or 5 months, but like I said they were not linebackers) He is thoroughly rotten, since he has 4 people telling him all day how handsome he is. He is really such a sweet happy guy most of the time...seemingly pretty laid back unless food is involved. He may just be trying to lull us into a false sense of security, though, like Tirzah did before him. So I'm not keeping my heart set on having a calm one to add to this crazy mix just yet. ;)
The first shot is for Macro Monday
