Wow, can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. Time flys! Let's see...Callie had her 4 month appointment January 5th. She was 12 lbs, 4 oz. and 23 3/4 inches long. She got her shots and did amazing! She didn't even cry the first 2 shots, but the last 2 got her, our poor girl. I guess she's used to her big brother picking on her. She's still rolling over from belly to back, but hasn't quite got the back to belly urge yet. We did start her on baby foods (organic of course!) after that appointment, but she just wasn't ready. She would have a good day, then want absolutely nothing to do with food for the next few, and so on and so on. I decided to give her a couple weeks to see if that would help. Sure enough, Cory attempted to feed her last week and she really was so much more into it. She's opening her mouth for each bite, and actually tonight, almost ate a full jar! We're thinking tomorrow we are going to add a fruit for breakfast along with her veggie for dinner.
As for Parker, well, he's still not walking. Getting so close though!! He will stand for a few seconds and attempt to take a step if someone is there on the other end to catch him. It's alright though. He's 15 months old and we won't get concerned until about 18 months. Until then, my back will have to keep suffering! He's so heavy! Still waiting for our 1st word too. Is this kid keeping me waiting or what? He's got all kinds of sounds for certain things, so it's pretty easy to figure out what he wants for us that know him real well. I guess he has his whole life to walk and talk, so it's alright with me. I would just love to hear a "mama" though. We're working on getting our little dude to sleep in his own bed. I think we created a monster! We never intended to be a co-sleeping family, but that's just the way it has worked out. Callie sleeps in her bed just fine, but crazy Parker just wont! Who's in charge here, right? Well, we are working on it. He's got a cold right now though and cutting more teeth, so we feel kinda bad for him and we are letting him sleep with us so he gets some kind of sleep at night. His cough is keeping us all awake though. It's okay, it's like that song says that says someday we will miss these days!
