4 month checkup

So we took Mr. Gavin to the Dr. Monday and he is progressing very good. When he was born he was 7lbs 1 0z and now he is a whopping 11lbs 2 oz! Dr. said, "Jessica, y'all are doing great with him but he is a little on the petite side for his age," but then turns around and says,"he's progressing in his weight good by gaining like a lb a month." HUH???? So, needless to say dr asked how many times does he eat? I responded "well he eats every 4 hrs so i guess about 5 to 6 times a day." Well Jess, I think you need to feed him an extra bottle." Well how can I do that when he sleeps through one of his bottles at night! HELLO!!! So I then preceded to ask about putting him on cereal. Dr says,"SUURREEE! and try it with a spoon!" What! I can't believe it something we get to do different. So after all that poor baby got his shots which one of them he was not happy about. Gah it kills me when he is like that. I got out of the dr's and rushed to the nearest Wal-Mart to grab cereal, bowls, and spoons. We got home and being so excited about doing something new I fixed his cereal and of course with having a bad day and not feeling good because of the shots he did not like it at all! Well we tried yesterday and he did better and was actually swallowing some of it but we cheat and put his "binky" in his mouth to help him learn to swallow. This was the outcome... of course it takes mama and daddy to do the task....

He is becoming more and more independent everyday! Playing with toys... sitting in his bimbo... and now trying to be a big boy and eat off of a spoon!

Newborn to 4 months

So i can't get over on how much my little boy grows up everyday. It's hard to believe that he is almost 4 months old. Being a 1st time mom does make you look at life in a whole different perspective. I have now gotten over on hanging out with friends and shopping for myself and everything just being about my husband and me. I can't believe on how much I have experienced with Gavin. My life is definetly very eventful and exciting now. In the past 4 months I have gone from Gavin sleeping all the time in his newborn curl, to holding his head up and rolling over to one side at 2 1/2 months to him smiling and making "fishy faces." Now that is a trip to see you little one making faces. He is wanting to make sure he is not missing any excitement and is always wanting to see something new! Gah... what an amazing life!

1st Time!

Well this is my first blog ever. The girl I work with is an regular blogger and after hearing countless stories of other people I decided, "Hey, I want one too!" Then again she works faster than I do so she has more time to do this. To start things off, I have a husband who I have been married to now for a year and 3 months. He just turned 21 a couple of weeks before our 1st year anniversary. Yeah, we started out things young cause hey we thought, "We want to still party with our kids when we're 40 yrs old." We were blessed with our son, Gavin Herschel, on March 25, 2010 and he is just the best thing that has ever happened to us. Everyday is a new and exciting experience for us. I can't even remember what I did with my life before him. It's like all the stuff we used to do doesn't matter all that much anymore cause we are so focused on him but I can't tell you enough how wonderful it is to be a mother. He is going to be turning 4 months soon and I just can't see where the time went! Well this is just a little bit about me for now until next time.. ADIOS!
