Once again, the background issue! :D

On some computers you can't see the background image fully and it looks confusing if you can't. So here it is if your computer doesn't show the full thing! :D I worked hard on it and it makes me sad that some computers don't show it. Plus it has more pictures that aren't posted on here! Love you all!

Nate looks like Phil? You be the judge.

There have been a lot of people that say that Nate looks exactly like Phil. Now while its true that He looks a lot like him, he doesn't look exactly like him! I love Phil and I obviously think he is cute if I married him and want our kids to look like him, but just look how much he looks like me! :D I'll see if I can get Phil's baby pictures on here soon!
Here is a picture of us both at around 1 month old! He has my nose mouth and chin!
This picture of me is when I am 6 months old. We have the same smile. Nate's smiling bigger in the top picture, but still.
I think people get fooled by the fact that they have the same color hair. If he had darker hair, they'd probably think he looks just like me! :D Either way he's still freaking cute!

Nate's 4 month check up!

Nate went to the doctor today!

He weighs 16 pounds 3 ounces, and is 26 inches long (not much different from his 2 month) and is in about the 60-70th percentile on height and weight! So he's pretty average!

He was so stinkin' cute! He kept smiling at the doctor and he was in a surprisingly good mood 'cause we woke him up from a nap! The doctor checked how he was developing physically and she said he is doing really well. A lot of 4 month olds lag their head when you pull them by their arms from a laying position to sitting and he doesn't. And he can bear weight on his legs which is really good too! :D

I talked to her about his spitting up and she said it was normal and that he doesn't have any medical problems (like I said, but no one believes me :D). Also I asked her when she recommends solid food and she said when he starts watching me eat and grabbing for food that he's ready, and that that will happen around 5-6 months.

He also got his immunizations. It was so sad because he was just laying there on the table with this happy mood, just looking up at me. Then she poked him and his eyes got all wide and he looked at me like "what the heck just happened??" I felt so bad naturally and the nurse said its usually more painful for the moms than it is the babies! Haha! He got over it fast and didn't seem too affected by it! Just thinking about it makes me want to cuddle him!

She also asked me how he is letting me sleep and I told her that he sleeps about 9 hours every night and she goes "don't tell anyone else that!" haha! And I was also concerned because sometimes he stays up too late and I can't get him to go to bed earlier. And she said that he will naturally start going to bed earlier and earlier as he gets older. So that made me feel better. He usually will fall asleep around 10 or 11 and sleep till about 7 to 9.

He's just the best little baby in the whole world!! At least I think so and I know Phil does too! We love him so much!

Nate's Halloween Costume! ..and his new winter outfit!

Our little Monkey!!! Isn't he the cutest? I love the little banana!
I can't get enough of this picture! Phil thinks his shirt is something a mom would pick out for her baby, but I just think it is so adorable! So whatever! :D

Why suck a thumb or binky when you have perfectly good toes?

He did this all on his own two nights ago. Crazy kid! Whatever floats his boat! As long as he's still not walking on his feet I'm ok with it!

Nate is 4 months old now!!!

Nate just turned 4 months old on the 8th! :D
He gets cuter and funner every day!
He's really into grabbing his feet lately!

He holds his head up really well! (this picture is from today)

He likes to go on walks in the stroller around the neighborhood
Hanging out with his dad (sometimes he really hates laying down and always wants to be sitting up!)

When we went to my brother-in-law and sister's shop I sat him in this walker and he loved it! He just loves to be in an upright position! So she let me borrow her "exersaucer" which is like this, but it has toys on all sides and he can't walk in it. He likes to sit in it too, but its a little big for him.
Technically I can start feeding him rice cereal this month, but I've read a lot of things about waiting for the signs that the baby is ready because they are less likely to develop allergies so I'm just going to continue feeding him breast milk only.
He still sleeps through the night (and has since 2 months)!
We just love our little guy so much!!!!

Weekly Update

Well, not much has been going on with us lately. Phil REALLY loves his job which is awesome! This one is good because he gets to interact with the students and he loves it. There is actually a program there where couples can live there for $1500 a month rent free with three meals a day. We would work Mon.-Fri. from 2-10 and Sunday after 6 and we wouldn't have to get a baby sitter! So we could go to school in the morning. Anyway we're thinking of doing that eventually, but probably not for a year or so.
This week at work was my first week back from my surgery and I've been feeling really good. I love my job! The nurses are great and I love my patients! :D
