Julian went to the doctor yesterday for his 4 month check up.  4 months!!  Where did the time go??  He is 15 lbs., 12 oz., and 25 inches long.  Yes, he’s humongous.  The doctor said that we can start baby food.  So, we tried, and here are the results:

Not a fan.  But it was fun.  We tried the nasty, tasteless rice cereal that they always tell you to start with.  That was never gonna fly, so I added bananas.  I hate bananas but I think banana baby food is yummy, so Julian was sure to love them.  Not so much.  Oh well.  We’ll try again later.

Daddy went shopping with me yesterday and bought Elliot a nerf gun.  A HUGE nerf gun.  Elliot was so excited when he got home from school.  He loved it!  It’s so funny to watch him play with it.  It’s so big, he has to put it on the floor the cock it and then pick it back up to shoot it.  It’s a little bit too big for him 🙂  I didn’t get a picture.  I was too busy taking video.  Very cute.

Well, I guess that’s all.  Just watching my babies grow, and enjoying every moment 🙂

Neither of us have blogged in a very long time.  Sometimes, I guess, we just get so busy enjoying our lives that we forget to write it all down.  But now, our new baby boy is 4 months old.  Four months old!  It seems like yesterday that his due date came….  and went…  and still no baby.  I was not a happy pregnant girl at 40 weeks and 1 day…

Julian is a very smart, very strong baby.  I’m sure every parent truly believes that, but in our case, it’s actually true.  We get these weekly emails about the milestones that he should be hitting and we look at each other and say “He was doing that three weeks ago!”  It’s crazy.  Such an amazing kid.  When Elliot was a baby, he loved everybody!  He wanted to be held by everyone, and he wanted to talk to everyone.  Not Julian.  He is a mommy and daddy’s boy.  He’s not one for socializing, and he is definitely not one for dinner conversation.  He’s got these big brown doe eyes that he already uses to melt your heart, and these cute little monkey ears.  He always has a binky in his mouth that Daddy likes to refer to as his “excite-o-meter” because the speed and intensity of the sucking increases the more excited he gets, or when he sees someone that he loves.  Oh, and his feet!!  His little, wonderful, fat, feet!!!  They look like little buttered dinner rolls that you just want to eat!  They’re amazing.  I think I could just sit and study him all day.

Mommy and Julian

This kid has definitely turned our world upside down, in the most the most wonderful way.  The past four months have been amazing, and they’ve just flown.  It’s unreal.  Elliot is the most amazing big brother, and he’s so proud of Julian.  Trey’s completely in love, and well, my cup runneth over.  When I go to bed every night, I feel like everything is as it should be, and all is right with the world.  I didn’t think it was possible to be this happy, and here we are, living it everyday.  I’m going to lay in bed with my three boys now, and watch How to Train Your Dragon, for the 50 millionth time, and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing.

Happy 4 Month Birthday my precious angel!
