One month: Like any new parents, having you, Taylor was a wonderful blessing and a life changing experience! We didn't get much sleep the first week or so as you were up crying each night from about 2-5AM, yikes! Happily it was a short period of time that even seems hard to remember now.
|Taylor and Harrison looked so thrilled, don't they :)|
At your 11 day check up you were up over your birth weight to 6lbs 14.75 ounces (10th %) and 19.5in long (25th %). Your cord fell off the next day at 12 days old.
You had your first bottle from daddy on 6/5/12 at 5 1/2 weeks old! And we got to see your first smile the next day on June 6th!
Two months: At your two month check up you weighed 9lb 10 ounces and were 21.5in long. Both 50th%. Your head circumference was 38.5 cm, also 50th%.

Four months: You had your 4 month check up a little early because we wanted to get you your second set of shots before our trip to Seattle for Courtney's wedding! At 14 1/2 weeks old you weighed 12 lbs 4.5 ounces and were 24in long. You rolled from back to front for the first time on 8/22/12.

Mommy went back to work after 16 wonderful (well lets be honest. . . exhausting, weepy, and wonderful :) ) weeks off with you. Naly and Meme stayed with you during the week when mommy and daddy had to work. This was so WONDERFUL and they took fabulous care of you as always!

Five months: You finally started rolling more and from front to back too. We all got to meet cousin Ty as he was born October 1st, the day after Buddy's birthday. We can't wait to see the two of you grow up together! You will have lots of fun and I'm sure get into lots of mischief too! Daddy's work scheduled changed and you started going to Miss Vickie's during the week while we worked. She has taken such good care of you!
Six months: At your 6 month check up you were up to 15lbs 13ounces, still in the 50th%. Your length was 24.5in (not much longer than your 4 month check up and at the 15th%) and your head circumference was 43cm (50th%). We gave you your first baby food! You started with rice cereal and then progressed to veggies and then fruits. Your favorite seems to be sweat peas! And like your daddy you initially didn't seem to be such a fan of green beans but you tolerate them!
Life with you is a grand adventure! We have had such fun so far and I can't wait to see everything else we are able to experience with you.
