Four months old!
Where does the time go? Four months already! Colby had his well baby 4 month check on the 12th. Poor thing had to get two shots, but he handled them very well and recovered from the trauma very quickly. He weighed in at 12 lb 4 oz and almost 23 inches long. He is eating well! He is just barely on "the normal curve" for weight, and just under the curve for height and head circumference. We are very pleased with his progress!
Some of the things he is doing - smiling, laughing, clasping his hands in front of his chest, following our voices, and holding on to things like our shirts. Steve can get the best smiles and the cutest giggles out of him - it's so sweet!
We made a visit back to the ICN at Wake Med and visited with some of the folks there. It was nice to see them and fun for them to see how big Colby has gotten. It was nice to visit, but so great not to be going there every day!
I am back at work just about full time, and that is going well. It is such a relief to be able to leave him at home with a great nanny. We hope keeping him at home will help him stay healthy this winter.
It's fun to have a baby at Christmas time, but it sure is hard to get things done! It took us five days to get the tree up and decorated! That's OK we just aren't doing as much this year - scaling back a little bit!
