4 Months already!

We are in shock that Evan is going to be 4 months on Sunday! Time is flying by, before we know it he will be walking and talking :) It is amazing how quickly he is changing. It really seems that every day he is doing something new.

We went to the Dr. the other week to check on Evan's skin. Since he is so fair skinned I think he may have skin issues for awhile. Just a little excema nothing too bad. Anyway, Evan got measured and weighed and I could have passed out! Evan is now.....15.7 lbs and 26.5 inches!!!! Since his 2 month check up he has gained almost 3 lbs and grown OVER 3 inches! We can not believe it. Our little boy who was in the 20th percentile when he was born is now in the 95th and higher! We are going to have a tall boy.

Sadly, Evan's hair is falling out. I am confident it will grow back red. We are seeing his new hair grow in and it is looking the same color.

As for milestones, there seem to be many. Evan can now sit up without support for a little while.

We put Evan in his exersauscer and he has started to use his hands to move different objects. He knows he has these hands but he is not quite sure how to use them. It is fun to watch but Evan gets frustrated when he can't get what he wants into his mouth.

We are pretty sure he has started teething. Evan likes to put anything and everything in his mouth, including Lady's nose. We have many teethers but Evan only likes one. It is a rubber giraffe that squeaks. Lady seems to think it can be her toy too :)

We are excited for Evan's first Thanksgiving. We are spending with some great friends and plenty of pictures will be taken. Can't believe that one year ago we found out we were pregnant with Evan!

Happy Holidays!

Evan is growing and changing

It seems that this past week has been a busy one for Evan. He had a fun Halloween even though he wasn't awake for most of it. Looked cute in the outfits he had though. A patient from where I used to work gave him some clothes that she no longer needed and one was a Tigger snow outfit. I thought it was going to be small on him, boy was I wrong! It gave us a good laugh!

Evan also seems to have started teething. I don't think we are going to see anything for awhile but he is drooling ALL the time and chewing anything he can get in his mouth.

For the past few weeks Evan has been able to grab things and hold them but it seems like he didn't know he was doing it. Starting yesterday and more today that has changed! Evan is grabbing his rattle/teether and putting it in his mouth! It is amazing to watch the changes and to see how he is advancing day to day.

The time change hasn't really affected Evan. He actually slept better than normal the night of the change. His new schedule seems to be he is in bed around 7:15 and will wake up 3 or 4 times at night but just wants his pacifier. He is taking a bottle around 5 or 6 am and then going back down for a nap until 8 or so. Napping hasn't changed unfortunately. He is the 30 minute nap king! I can clock it which is hard. I get lucky some days and he will sleep for an hour. I don't know what to do with that extra 30 minutes!

Grandma BeBe is in town for a visit this week and Evan is soaking up all the attention. He now has enough clothes to wear one to two new outfits every day and not repeat for at least a few weeks. (it seems that way at least).

That's it from here in Bellingham, the weather is turning cold and the leaves are changing.

Happy Fall!
