4 Months

JT is now officially 1/3 of a year old- it has gone by so fast!!! Yesterday he has his well check appointment and everything is looking great! He weighs 15 pounds, 15 ounces and is 25 inches long. This puts JT in the 70% in the growth charts for both height and weight- perfectly in proportion :)

He did get 2 shots and one oral immunization, which JT was not thrilled with. His eczema and reflux are still a battle, but the Dr said we are doing everything correctly to help and hopefully, he will outgrow them. She said the reflux tends to peak around 4 months and continually get better. We hope so because we have all had our share of being puked on-LOL! This isn't a little spit up usually, its the type where you change your shirt afterward type spit up! So gross, but just a part of who he is right now. The Dr. gave clearance to introduce rice cereal and eventually other veggies and fruits. Later this week when we have the recorder set up and camera ready it will be show time for 1st tastes of solid food!! So exciting!!!

Some of JT's latest favorites are chewing on his fingers and hands. Sometimes he sticks his fingers so deep in his mouth he gags himself. I have to pull them out because he's not aware he's the one doing it. He also loves chewing and holding on to colorful chain links for babies with different textures and they can hold plush toys for babies. JT has also started rolling over from his back to his tummy!! The little stinker has done this but only when he is alone!! I have found him in his crib on his tummy a couple of times and then another when he was playing on the floor and I went to get something. However, last night I did get to see him go from his tummy to back-yay! Since he has been starting to flip, he is enjoying sleeping on his side-so cute. JT is also talking so much-babbling to whoever will listen and talk back. I have tried recording him, but he has this great amazement with the flashing light on the camera when I'm filming that he stops talking and looks at the light! We are going to try to cover the light so it doesn't distract him when he's doing adorable things.

I hope that you are finding the many blessings that the Lord has given each and every one of us this fall season. From the cooler temperatures, the changing of colors, wonderful friends and family and most importantly the gift of life through Jesus. I am so thankful for all of these and more! Much love to you and yours....
