"He is going to be ALRIGHT"

Well, Today was a big day!!

Reese had his four month check up! He had four BIG shots...Daddy came because Mommy cant stand to see him in pain. Ginny kept the room "light and happy" when she said to Dr. Guetersloh....:Doctor? What is wrong with that mans face?" Referring to the Human Body map on the wall...I guess you had to be there, it was sooo funny!

Anyway, here is the breakdown:
Weight: 15.1 pounds (50-75 percentile)
Height: 25 inches (75 percentile..WOOHOO!)
Head: 17 inches (90 percentile...he has a lot of brains, ok???)

We can now start feeding him rice cereal. Tonight we attempted this and it wasnt his favorite thing, but with time I think he will start to like it. Reese is very happy just nursing, but the rice cereal might help with getting this boy to sleep.

I told Dr. G that Reese didnt liked to sleep at night and he said, "Lindsay, put him in his crib and close the door" and that is what I did tonight. It was the hardest thing in the world, but he is sound asleep and has been for the past 5 hours. I want to sooo badly sneak in there and grab him up! But, the doc said..."you need TOUGH LOVE, momma". I brought Allen with me to the doctor so he could be there to hear all that the doctor had to say AND so he could MAKE me put him straight to bed in his crib at night.

Ginny and Reese were treated to some fabulous Vday gifts from GiGi and Poppy!!! There is something sooo great when you arrive home from a rough day with a BIG package at the door... thanks Mom and Dad...Ginny has had a blast with all her goodies!!

Here is Reese's first Rice Cereal experience...
