Today my sweet boy is 16 weeks old! I can hardly believe how quickly the time has gone. Today we went to the doctor and Edward weighs 14lbs 15oz. WOW!! He's also 25.5 inches, meaning he'll probably be tall just like his daddy!
For the last 13 weeks, Edward has struggled with pretty bad acid reflux. He's on Prevacid to help control the acid that his stomach produces. It has helped quite a bit, but we are anxious to get him off this medicine. That's why we are welcoming the 4-month mark with open arms. Four months meant we could start rice cereal, which will hopefully keep the acid down. Edward takes his Prevacid in a paste, so I was pretty sure that he'd be able to eat the cereal without any trouble. I was right!! He ate it well, but didn't look like he enjoyed it much. The face says it all!
Ok...it's not so bad!!
Before we ate our cereal, we went swimming for the first time. Edward and I went over to Aunt Kelly and Uncle Chris' house, my sister and brother-in-law. Their home backs up to Chris' parents, who happen to have the most beautiful pool. They kindly allowed us to come and swim tonight. I bought Edward the cutest suit a couple weeks ago and was dying to see him wear it. Edward loves bath time until you wash his face and hair, so I was anxious to see how he'd do in the pool. He seemed to enjoy it until he got a little cold. The air was warm but the wind was blowing. He didn't stay in too long.
Look at me! Here comes trouble!
Swimming with mommy!
I love my cousin, Ben!
Getting warm with my Nana.
After a busy day of going to the doctor, going swimming, and having cereal, I'm hoping for a good nights sleep!!
Stay tuned for more posts. I'm going to try and catch up by posting some of the happenings of the last four months.
Until next time...
