4 Month Birthday and Dr. Appt

Today is Caleb's 4 month birthday. It truly is flying by. And maybe it's because he is ginormous, but he doesn't really seem like an infant anymore, which makes me a little sad. I had been waiting for it to get warm enough for him to wear this little outfit. He looks like a little man in it to me. (Aaron pointed out the weird "firey crown" on his head; that's just the sunshine from his activity gym and all the pics I took had him positioned like this- sorry).

Yesterday was his 4 month checkup, complete with another round of immunizations. Once again, he handled them like a champ- one long angry cry then just a few whimpers after that. I think the idea of starting him on Tylenol before we get to the appointment must help a lot. He was kinda fussy and sleepy yesterday but was all smiles and no napping today :)
So here are the latest stats on our incredible hulk of a son:
Height: 27 1/4 inches (97th percentile)
Weight: 18 pounds 1 ounce (96th percentile)
Head Circumference: 45 cm (97th percentile).

It is almost comical that he is so big- people that we meet around town guess that he is 6-9 months old. Kim posted that Adalie is almost 7 months old and weighs about 2 pounds less than Caleb. It's funny to me because when they visited at Christmas and we put them side by side in the pack and play, she looked huge in comparison. He has more than caught up now!! (By the way, Kim is in trouble for putting a HORRIBLE picture of me on her blog. I guess she's excused because it was part of a happy birthday wish but it is really bad. I don't think I realized how swollen I looked right before Caleb came along- YIKES! )

Off to bed I go. Busy next few days as we prepare to have company over the Easter weekend. My dad's sisters are coming in from Kansas City and Asheville. It should be a great time. We are also going to try to go up to the church and take some Easter pics as evidently they have some great decorations outside the children's area. Will post if we are successful in that venture.

You couldn't take a bad picture if you tried! Either way though you can take a new picture with Adalie now if we get to see you guys when I'm in town next week! I'm anxious to see Caleb in comparisson of Adalie, too! He is such a cutie patootie!!! Has it really been 4 months!
