4 months old

Taylor turned 4 months old on Monday.  We celebrated by trying rice cereal for the first time.  He doesn't swallow a whole lot, but he did pretty good.  Today at the doctor he weighed in at 12 pounds 11 ounces (9th percentile) and 24 1/4 inches (22nd percentile).  Yeah, he's a little guy.:)  He's strong though...he always wants to be standing up on your lap, checking things out.  If he's on the ground, he's pushing up on his arms or rolling over.  He likes to hold a rattle and try to eat it, and especially likes to gnaw on fingers (his own or anyone elses) so he's a drool monster from that.  Sometimes at night, when he should be in bed, he likes to stay up and have little cooing conversations with mommy and daddy for up to 2 hours.  He's still not a good sleeper, but I've resigned myself to thinking it will probably be just like Chase and we won't get any good rest until he's a year old.  He sure is cute though!

He's so adorable, but I swear he has a different look in every picture. Guess I better just come out there in a couple of weeks and see him for myself! : ) He did really well with the cereal too...my kids hated that stuff.

I love Chase wanting cereal in the background, isn't that just the way with two kids, they always want the same thing at the same time! : ) Aubrey always wants to be held when Asher is being held, etc. Funny ...

He is sooo adorable! Happy four months! I can't wait to meet him in August. That was funny with Chase, even more so when he jumped so quickly to finding his fruit cereal :)
