4 Months

Little Wesley turned 4 months old a few days ago. He is growing like crazy! At his checkup, he was in the 75th percentile for weight and 95th percentile for length. I guess this explains why he is already wearing 12 month size clothes. I looked up Molly's stats to compare them, and she wasn't this long until she was 10 months old.

His colic is getting better and I think it mostly stemmed from his food sensitivities. Nursing him, I just have to be absolutely sure not to eat any dairy products or we will sure know it the next day. I think he is also possibly allergic to nuts and/or soy. I would like to start supplementing him with formula or at least to have it as a back-up in case I can't be there every 4 hour interval of his life, but with him having so many digestive issues I'm afraid it may do more harm than good. The doctor gave us some soy formula to try, so we will have to give it a shot sometime when we have nothing planned for the next couple days (in case it doesn't sit well with him).

We sure do love our little Wesley though. He is really kicking and discovering his feet, playing with toys, making all kinds of baby noises and putting everything in his mouth. He can roll up onto his side, but hasn't made it over yet. His hair is getting a little thin on the sides and back, but on the top I've already trimmed it twice and it just keeps growing and growing.

Molly Turns 3!

Our little baby Molly just isn't much of a baby anymore..she's 3 years old! She's turned into such a big kid and a wonderful big sister. She's potty trained, eats using utensils, is athletic and aced her 3 year old screening through the Parents as Teachers Program. Well, all except one thing...her name! She would not say her name no matter what. She insisted her name was "Big Sister" and wouldn't consider anything else. Minor details right??

Molly's one request for her birthday was to have a blue cake with strawberries. So, her party didn't really have a theme this year, it just most definitely had a blue cake with strawberries!

Blowing out the candles.
 Instead of having the party at our house, as we have done in the past, we had it in the park with a playground. Molly LOVES playgrounds and was so excited to have her party there, that we had to talk her into opening her presents instead of swinging.

Lucky girl!
 Don't worry though, she had plenty of time to play and plenty of other kids to play with. She really had a fun day and still talks about it all the time. Thanks to everyone who came to her party, sent gifts and wished her a happy birthday!!
