As for our children, they are more in love with this baby than I've ever seen older siblings be... Chloe and Nathan are especially dedicated to him. Jillian is a little young still but she's adjusting. :) She's just not used to not being the baby anymore. Lowell has fallen in love with Wyatt and he's thankful that things worked out how they did. That is a blessing that I couldn't be more thankful for.
Jillian has to take a picture of her family to school next week and I realized that we don't have one - not one iwth all 6 of us. So, that's on the agenda for this weekend. I'll post it when we get one and I'm sure I'll make extra copies so that I can send some to the family.
At four months, Wyatt weighs 12 lbs 7oz -- that puts him in the 5th percentile for weight (95% of 4 month olds weigh more than him) and he's in the 25th percentile for length (75% of 4 month old babies are longer than him). His head size puts him in the 25th percentile too, so he's porportionate and the doctor isn't worried. He's definitely gaining weight and we're started him on solid foods. So far he's only had bananas; doctors recommend that you keep a baby on only one food at a time - for three days in a row so that if an allergy arises, you can be sure what the reaction is to. He's not allergic to bananas. Today we're moving on to applesauce or sweet potatoes. The kids are thrilled that he's sitting in his high chair and that they can feed him.
|Very first solid food -- bananas. That's Daddy feeding him. :)|
