We went to Little Rock yesterday for Jack's 4 month well baby visit, and it went really well! He did great! He was good in the waiting room and we had a great time playing in the examination room.
He now weighs 13 pounds, 6.5 ounces, and he is 24.5 inches long. So he has gained almost 2 pounds and grown an inch and one half in the past 2 months which is GREAT!!! Dr. Malak said that he is doing perfect!
She was really impressed by his head control, which she tested by pulling him into a sitting position by his arms. He held his head up with his body when she did it, instead of letting it fall back, which means he has good head control! YEAH! I wasn't surprised though because I had read about that and tried it at home! :)
He has some dry skin on his thigh and foot that she said to use Dove soap and Eucerin lotion on, and she gave us a prescription for Vitamin D drops. And she said we can start him on rice cereal, which we're excited about!
Then came the dreaded shots, which he hated, of course! He cried and cried! It was worse than his 2 month shots, but eventually he calmed down, and once we got him in the truck he was out like a light!
Today he's had a little bit of a fever and has been really fussy and not feeling good because of the shots, but he's ok, poor little guy! I don't ever want him to get sick! UGH! It's hard enough knowing why he's feeling bad and that it's not serious, I can't imagine not knowing exactly what is wrong and what to do about it! Lord, please grant us mercy! I'm already praying for when that day comes.

Saturday afternoon we went to Columbus to meet two of my good friends, Coop and Mary Evelyn. I hadn't seen Coop in a year, so she hadn't seen Jack yet. It was great seeing them and letting then see our little man. Mary Evelyn is having a baby girl in August. They are going to name her Brinkley Kate. How cute! Doesn't she look just adorable!
Saturday night we cooked out at Kane and Katey's house. The guys did the grillin' and then girls did the sides. We always have the best, most encouraging conversations with these friends! Truly an iron sharpening iron group! What a blessing!
Here's Jack all dressed up for church Sunday. We went to our old church, the Chapel, and saw our friends there. They oohed and ahhed over how big Jack is and of course how cute he is! Then we ate some good ole Starkville food at Peppers after church. Yum!
Sunday afternoon Jack and I went to a baby shower for Mary Evelyn in Columbus. How cute is that duckie bath tub! She got some awesome stuff! Little Brinkley is going to be spoiled! :)
We had a great weekend! It was so incredible and weird being in Stakville again. I felt so awkward driving around, but knowing that I don't live there anymore. Thanks to all of the travelling this month we are now experts at doing it with an infant, but now we are staying home for a while...so ya'll have to come see us! :)
These pictures are from last Friday morning. Jack was doing great lifting his head and then he'd verrrrrry slowly roll over to his back. He did it about 5 times. Then Brian came home and he did it one more time just for Daddy. We both cheered and cheered for Jack. Brian was so proud, and glad he got to see the little man in action! :)
