Xander's 4 month appointment

Xander is now 15 lbs 1 oz and 25 in long! He is 50th percentile for height and weight and 25th percentile for head circumference. The Dr assures me however that even though his head is small that will not affect his intelligence. He did alright with his shots. He wasn't too happy about them but he calmed down pretty quickly afterwards. He had a fever the next day and was obviously not feeling well, but seemed back to his happy self today. Last week in general he was fussy though. He was on a nursing strike- he would only eat if we were laying down. He gets distracted very easily these days and seems to think that my nipples are made out of rubber! I think he was having a bit of a growth spurt too b/c it seemed as if he was constantly hungry. He was also apparently somewhat constipated b/c he didn't poop for 8 days- the lucky babysitter got to change that diaper! I'll have to take some pics of him in his cute halloween outfits. Today he was wearing a onesie with a glow in the dark skeleton on the front- so cute!!!!

Did the last remaining chicken survive? Your sheep are cute! And so is XANDER! He really does look like a boy (well, I think he always did). Sorry he is using your boobs to teethe...ouch.
