32 Weeks

We finally had his six month appointment (at seven months).

Here are his stats:
Height: 28.5 in (90th percentile)
Weight: 16lbs 15oz (21st percentile)
Head circumference: 45 cm (76th percentile)

The doctor was slightly concerned that he had dropped on the curve for his weight so we have to go in for another weight check in 4 weeks. I'm not too concerned. This happened with Nixon, and I think it's just that I need to bump up his solids a little bit. Other than that, he said everything looked great!

Now that he's much more mobile, crawling, pulling up, maneuvering between the couch and chair, he's become much more accident prone. He got his first real wound. We were at church and he was crawling around in the nursery. He had pulled up on his knees on the leg of a stable table, so I didn't worry too much. I was blowing bubbles for the kids when I hear a cry. I looked over and saw he bonked the leg. I tried to console him thinking he'll stop as soon as I pick him up. And he did, but there it was, blood coming from his face. As he was trying to get back down to a crawling position, he scraped his face on a screw head on the inside of the leg that I couldn't see. I felt so bad. Luckily he wasn't maimed too bad, but I could tell it was tender for the first couple days. I guess it begins again.

31 Weeks

How sweet is this face? I'll tell you, super sweet. He has the best smile and loves when I come into his room in the mornings. His face lights up and does his big open mouth smile. He truly has the softest skin. It's so buttery. People ask me what I put on him, but the once or twice a week I bathe him, I put on Johnson's nighttime lotion. Other than that, it's all natural and I love it.

Crew is anti-snuggling and pro-wiggling. This kid will not sit still for the life of me! I'm a little nervous for our trip to Idaho this year!

Also, drumroll......... We've got a crawler! I knew he was days from crawling last week. He crawled for the first time on the 7th. He still prefers army crawling because it's faster, but he's got it down. Thank heavens though, his shirts were getting dingy from army crawling. Now his pants knees are going to be done for. Such is life, he's crawling!

30 Weeks

Happy Cinco De Mayo and 30 weeks to Crew! Unfortunately no tacos for him.

We are literally on the brink of crawling! He has now learned to climb on top of things- diaper boxes, train bin, Nixon's bed and trampoline. I usually let him play in Nixon's room because there's nothing back there he could get hurt on, until I hear a thud and cry come from the room. I run to the back to see what happened. I was initially angry because I thought Nixon had pushed him over, but after some investigative questioning, I realized Crew had climbed on the little trampoline in the room and had tried to pull himself up and fell over. Needless to say I've been a little more cautious! We are literally days from crawling, I just know it.
