This is the third post I have started since the new year. I just can't seem to actually finish a thought, apparently! They are all fun ones too... well maybe I will get around to posting them someday :) Maybe not, who knows.
I finally have time (I think) and a subject for a new post. I really like to post when I have pictures to share, and alas my camera has not been clicking away lately. So this will be strictly a text update for y'all.
Yesterday Forest had his 4 month checkup at the doctors office. So Steve and I took the whole family in for flu shots as well, and running errands. You know - Costco, Pak-It-Rite, Safeway, the bank(s), Walmart, Jerry's Auto Supply (obviously that was not my errand). Shots and appointment went well. Olaf didn't even cry! Forest did though, poor little guy. When I say cry, I mean CRY. Luckily he passed out sleeping when we got back into the car.
We finally found out how big Forest was!
Weight: 14lbs. (25th percentile) He's a little dude!
Height: 25inches (45th percentile) Pretty average for height.
Head: 18inches (100th percentile) Holy freaking orange on a toothpick, Batman.
Bonus on having a smaller second child - he can wear Olaf's clothes a lot longer! Yeehaw! I am all for saving money on children's clothes. In all actuality, I don't have to spend any money on them, since we get fabulous hand-me-downs from the cousins and friends in Plain. Between Christie and I we could probably outfit 5 or 6 children Olaf's age. What a blessing! Of course because I can't resist a good clearance rack, both kids will still continue to get a new outfit here and there. And then there's always grandma(s) too.
The kids are just FUN these days. No, it's not always easy, and yes, sometimes I want to cover my ears and eyes and ignore the noise or tantrum or mess before me... but it's not that often. Our family of 4 is adjusting just fine, and enjoying life as we go.
