7 Months and Growing!

7 Months old!

Well, I neglected to write after Q’s doctor appointment on the 15th of December, but my boy is 15 lbs, 14 oz. and 26.5 inches tall. That puts him in the 15% and 43% respectively. His head circumference is 17.5 which is the 65%. He’s obviously super smart. The doctor had no concerns, and commented that he obviously liked his orange veggies because his skin was slightly orange/yellow at the nose.  His favorite veggies are squash and sweet potatoes, so I’m not surprised. He did pretty well with his shots.  Daddy was making faces at him to distract him, but he still didn’t get getting poked so many times. Continue reading ‘7 Months and Growing!’


Oh, What a Month!

6 months and loving it!

My little man is now over 6 months old. (Picture above taken on the 1st). As I mentioned in my last entry, he popped out a tooth on the 2nd day of the month. On the 28th on November he cut his second tooth, making his smile even more adorable.  I haven’t managed to get a good shot of them because he tends to hang out with his tongue sticking out of his mouth now.  Goofy kid. Of course, it’s not just that his tongue is hanging out.  He’s really upped his “talking”.  He babbles for 10 minutes easy and has babble conversations with his cousin Oliver.  Soon he’ll say his first word.  I hope it’s “mama”, but from his babbles, I’m guessing it will be “dada.”  Charlie will love that!

5 Months!

Can you believe it? 5 months have passed since my world has gotten exponentially better. As I write this, I’m enjoying snores from the other room where he’s asleep… and hoping the other little one will stay asleep too. 5 months. Wow.  This has been a bit of a tough month for Quentin, but there have been so many good things too.  He now eats solid foods like a champ and he can roll over back to front, and that was just in the beginning of the month.

So excited!

Quentin has reached another milestone today.  While I was playing with him this morning (and taking pictures) I looked away to look at a picture on my camera and turned back just in time to see him finish rolling over… Of course, he’s rolled over before, but he was always on an incline and just used gravity… so I put him back on his back and he did it again… so I took out my camera and took a video.  My boy has been rolling belly to back for months now but now he can officially roll from his back to his belly!

Pictures and video below!

And so it goes…

Fluffy Butt!

Well then… So far cloth diapering is a success.  I’m still getting used to it though and his clothes have gotten a little wet every once in awhile.  It’s harder to tell when he needs a change. Tomorrow I go to a store and hope to find some new cloth diapers so I can start my own stash and so I can eventually return the diapers that I borrowed, especially since I don’t want BBQ to stain the diapers too badly.  If they were mine, I wouldn’t care, but they’re not. Yesterday, Mr. BBQ was in a matchy-matchy outfit.  Everything he was wearing had frogs on it, with the exception on his socks… even his diaper, see above.  Then he went to bed in froggy pajamas.

Rice Cereal…

My Little Man

My little rascal...

Today we went to the doctor’s for Quentin’s 4 (and a half) month visit.  He’s my little man as he is now in the 15%.  He weighed in at 13 lbs, 11 oz. and stood (horizontally on the table) at 25.5 inches tall.  He is right where he needs to be developmentally and I’m excited to try out solid foods with him.  Rice cereal anyone?
