4 Months Old!

Yesterday Preston turned 4 months old. I can't believe 4 months has gone by! We had to visit the public health nurses to get his next round of shots. He did cry a bit but not for long. He's such a little trooper! He weighs in at 17 lbs 5 oz and is 26 1/4 inches long. That's a gain of 2 lbs and an inch and a 1/4 in a month! The nurse did confirm that he is teething....But I knew that already. He's actually been better this time with his reaction to the shots then last time and he got the same 3 shots again. I did keep him on Tempra yesterday every 4 hours but today he's shown no signs of crankyness.

22 Days until Preston and I fly home. I'm starting to get excited for all of my family to meet him. He's been really good with the recent strangers we have met so I have hope that he will take to my family quite well.

On monday I got a real giggle out of him during bath time. It was so cute! I tried again yesterday when he had a bath but only got a chuckle. The weather has been nice here and I've been going out for some nice walks with Preston. He's so much better now about being strapped into his carseat. He doesn't cry at all anymore!

Another Update

Every day that passes I watch my little man grown and accomplish new things. He's started to roll from belly to back. On Saturday he rolled over at 6:10 am and decided to chatter. I rolled him back to his stomach as he won't sleep on his back. I checked on him 10 minutes later and he was on his back again watching his ocean wonders. On Sunday he was up at 6:30 chattering so Daniel got him up for the day. On Monday he decided 5:30am was a good time to start the day. I didn't agree. He stayed in his crib until 7am quite happily. The last 2 days he's been up at 7 am and every time I go in to get him up he's rolled onto his back. He seems to only do it in his crib. He does get lots of tummy time on the floor but doesn't roll. He has also been trying while on the floor to roll from back to tummy. He gets almost on his side but that's it so far.

He's started to get some cereal in the mornings. I have been giving him a tablespoon of oat cereal every morning this week. He loves it. He's not pushing it out at all and he gobbles the whole bowl up. I think next week I'll have to up the amount. He's starting to get more co-ordinated when reaching for toys. He can hold on to them now and wave them around.

We haven't been able to get out much again because of this stupid weather. I was out with him on Monday then yesterday it was all cold and rainy. Today is supposed to be better so I hope to get out.

I am having lots of trouble loosing weight. I try and eat healthy but my MIL keeps giving me chocolate and candy. I am going to give all the unopened stuff away this weekend so I won't eat it. I also have a call into the local fitness centre. I want to know the cost of a 6 month membership vs monthly. Even when I get out for a walk it just doesn't seem to be enough. When I do get out to the barn and go for a ride with Sarah I seem to loose a couple of lbs that day so I need more exercise. The fitness centre is only manned by volenteers and no one has yet returned my message from Monday. If I don't hear from them today I will call again.

Anyways it's 37 days until Ontario!

Here is my Pic of Preston for the day!

3 Months Old!

On Thursday Preston had his 3 month check up. He's up to 15 lbs 6 ozs and he's 25 inches long. Dr. Wade was really happy with how well he's doing. Friday and today Preston and I went out for a walk. It so nice out and it was nice to get out and blow the stink off of us.

There is a baseball turnament on the diamond right behind our house. It goes from Friday at 5 pm though to Sunday evening. I have yelled at so many people walking though our yard I am going hoarse!!!! Normally it's just kids but when this damn turnament is on adults are doing it as well because they are too lazy to walk to the end of the street. People can't get it though their heads that this is private property and not a church anymore. The cop next door says if he catches people doing it he'll be charging them with tresspassing.....he he he

I just finished watching the Kentucky Derby. I haven't watched it in a few years. There have been too many horse deaths in major races in the last couple of years. It was a great race this year and even though the track was wet all the horses and riders crossed the finish line safe and sound. The horse that won was Mine that bird at 50-1 odds. Well done!

Tomorrow is barn and grocery shopping.

48 days until Preston and I fly home to see Grammin and Papa!!!!!
