Happy Birthday Landyn!

Today is Landyn's 4 month birthday! We had his well child checkup first thing this morning. He weighed in at 14 pounds 6 ounces 44% and is 25 1/8 inches long! (I'm pretty sure this is wrong his head was over to the side when she measured him.) The doctor also gave us the go ahead with solids but we will be waiting until he is ready or about 6 months. He was only 6 lbs 14 ounces when he was born so he has to gain 1 more ounce to double his birth weight! His shots went way better than the 2 month ones. His legs are not swollen and he's really not as crabby as I imagined.

We also have started using cloth diapers! I'm totally loving it right now and with my new washer I just press all the buttons and it does the prewash, soak, normal wash, spin, extra rinse, and spin again! All of that in 82 minutes! But the nice things is I don't have to walk all the way down to the basement again to start the regular wash like 20 minutes later! Yup lazy me doesn't like walking down to the cold basement to flip the laundry! oh well!

Okay it's time for me to take a nap, I know it's super late for a nap but if tonight goes the way last night did I will be lucky to get 4 hours total by 7 am! I can't wait to get the replacement crib parts so we can start following the guidelines from the book "Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child". Or as I'm starting to call it, "Sleeping Bootcamp". More about that later!

Happy Birthday my sweet boy!


  1. glad the shots went well!! i know you said you're waiting to start the solids, i've started dustin and he is sleeping even longer at night now. so maybe that'd help the sleeping stuff for landyn. or it may not. i don't care what you do. lol. i know some people wait til six months. but dustin is my fourth kid and he'll most likely be on some table foods by then. lol. it's amazing how things change after having your first. :0)

  2. my son was 4 months on the (supposed to be the 30th) of Feb. and he goes for his 4 month wellness check up and shots tomorrow. can't wait to read more of your blog.

    your son is so cute!!!
