Four Months

Another month has flown by! Owen is growing like a weed. He has lost pretty much all of his baby hair and now it is coming in blonde. He has really started teething this past month. He is a constant drooling mess! :) His torticollis seems to be getting a little better as his neck gets stronger and his head control is better. He now enjoys spending time in the exersaucer and doorway jumper.

The big surprise this month was that he decided to take up nursing again. I've been pumping exclusively since he was about 2 weeks old. About two weeks ago he started going through what seemed to be a growth spurt and wanting to eat all the time. I got behind in my production and just couldn't get it pumped fast enough. Out of frustration I gave him an opportunity to nurse directly and he latched right on without any problems at 15 weeks old! So now he is fully breastfed as if he had never skipped a beat! Truly amazing!!

We go back to the doctor for his 4 month checkup tomorrow.

Here's a quick look at the past 3 months. It is neat to see how much he as changed!
