all about my sweetie...and a quick update on Jayden

My dear friend Andrea likes to fill these things out on her blog and then "tag" me! But I love her so I do them. Check out her ADORABLE twins at poehlfamily.blogspot.com. And while you're at it, you can check out the two cutie pies I watch twice a week at miaandjacob.blogspot.com! Love you all!

Oh and since this IS Jayden's blog, a bit of news about him. We had his four month check -up and he weighed in at 13 pounds, 9 ounces (exactly 7 pounds above his birthweight!) and is 25 inches long. :)

4 months old, here we come!!

Well Jayden will be four months old on Monday, which we find hard to believe. (a side note: our nephew, Owen, also turns SIX that day...Amazing!). He is doing so well, growing like a weed. He's sleeping pretty well at night, and will start the night with a stretch of anywhere from 6-9 hours. Mommy loves the nine hour nights!! His reflux is about the same, maybe a little better. Still lots of puking and some fussiness during feedings here and there. He is such a happy little guy, though. He fills our days with joy and laughter!

Here are some recent pics of him. Such a cutie pie! :) Oh and also here's a video of him rolling. He's not very good at it yet! :)

tummy time and laughing!

Hello all. Well as usual Jayden is growing like crazy and filling our lives with joy and laughter. He recently started doing really well with his "tummy time." He used to hate it and would lay there and cry but lately he picks his head up, looks around, smiles, and laughs. He is also working on rolling but isn't quite there yet. Here are some pics and a video to entertain everyone!!
