Here is a status update on our growing boy (Well, technically we have two growing boys, but this guy is growing more rapidly). Schroeder turned four months old on Monday. Over our vacation, he successfully flipped over both from back to belly and belly to back. He isn't making lots of repeat performances on the back to belly flip, though. The first time, Stephen and I were busy packing our things to leave North Carolina, but we heard everyone encouraging him upstairs.
He can grab things with his hands, namely my hair! We call him our little stroke victim since he is still trying to train his hands to do what he wants them to. He'll grab his pacifier and then try to put it back in usually without much luck. We are pushing the pacifier with him as I can take it away. FYI, cutting off thumbs is frowned upon (Although, we are making progress in this department with Julian).
Schroeder is also using his exersaucer and Johnny Jumper. Who wants to sit in a swing when you can use your legs! He isn't jumping yet, but I'm only giving that three weeks. Julian and D'arcy are sneaky and try to use these cool devices when I'm not looking.
We went to the doctor today for his four month checkup and found out he is 14.4 lbs and 25.5 inches. Next up, we will be trying out cereal in the next couple of weeks and then veggies in a month or so. Here is a cute picture of the boy.
