20 Weeks

Nixon is 20 weeks and the happiest boy! He has had a few weird nights where he wakes up around 11:30-12:00 at night for no reason really. But last night he was back to his old fantastic sleeping self, and woke up right on cue at 9:00am.

He's got the biggest full mouth grin and we can't get enough of it!
He rolling around, literally, all over our living room/dining room, and today his ended up rolling himself up in his blanket. He thought he was pretty funny! He so fun to watch, and I'm so grateful that I get to be home and watch it all unfold before my eyes.

September 11th

I was in sixth grade and I was sitting in Mrs. Howard's homeroom class. The news was on and they kept replaying two buildings being hit by planes. I had no idea what those buildings were, and I don't think I fully grasped what was going on. Little did I know, I was watching history unfold right before my eyes, and it is something I will never forget. 

I saw this quote, and I loved how powerful the message is.

19 Weeks

Nixon had his 4 month check up today. Here are his stats:
Height: 27.25in (98th percentile)
Weight: 14.10 lbs (22nd percentile)
Head circumference: 41.40cm (30th percentile)

The doctor says he's growing big and strong and that with him being fairly advanced in his development (rolling all over the place and getting up on his needs and toes), he said that we could start him on some solids. I may wait a couple more weeks (mostly because the longer I can hold off buying baby food the better), but I'm happy that he's thriving and growing!

He also got more shots and took them like a champ! Crying for less than 5 seconds–I'll take it! (Still loves sucking his toes!)

18 Weeks

I don't know if I'll ever get these done on time, but better late than never! Nixon is 18 weeks and is loving being able to roll all around the place. With that has also come more spit up, which means I'm constantly cleaning and listening for it to come!  He has now officially had his first camping trip and while he's not crawling yet, I don't thing it's too far into the future that he will be.

He also enjoys seeing himself in mirrors.
