4 months old!!!

We tried feeding Wake rice cereal for the first time the other day. He was not having it! We have put it in his bottle at times but I wanted to try it by spoon now that he is 4 months old. Well, needless to say, he held it in his mouth and cried looking at me with this look like, "what am I supposed to do with this?". I guess we will try again soon!
Wake just had his 4 month old check up the other week. He weighed in at 16 lbs 10 ozs. He is a BIG boy! He got his shots and did so good. He had stopped crying before we even left the room. We were so proud of him. He is also doing very well in day care. I think he really likes it. He is on a good routine and sleeping well throughout the night. He has stared drooling a LOT so I am thinking that my might be teething. No teeth have come through yet, but I think we are close.
Wake has also started to roll over. Now that he has started, he doesn't stop. Every time we lay him down in his Einstein gym, he rolls over to his belly. I am such a proud mommy! Before you know it he will be crawling...Yikes!!! He has also started to laugh. It is the cutest sound ever!

Proud Parents...

Here are a few random pictures that I have that I just love. As you can see I can't get enough of him. He is growing so fast and I want to capture everywaking minute.

It's cowboy time!

Wake's Aunt Judy bought him this adorable cowboy onesie is I just love. Shawn of course will not let me take him out anywhere in accept for Grammy's house. So of course I had to put him in it and take a ton of pictures. I think it is the cutest thing ever!!! Thanks Aunt Judy!!!

All the Grampas

Wake has gotten to spend a lot of time with his grampas this past month. I just wanted to post some adorable pictures of him with each of them. He loves them all so very much and wishes he could see them all more!

He has found his Toes!!!

Wake has found his feet! He is constantly grabbing for them now. He stretches out his socks and is always trying to get his toes in his mouth. I think it is the sweetest thing ever!!!

Fiona Ivy Stith

I am now a proud aunt to Fiona Ivy. My brother had a beautiful baby girl on August 19, 2009. She weighed 6lbs 14 ozs and was 20 in long. She had a head full of dark hair and had long fingers and toes. :) She is a wonderful new addition to our family!

Wake has finally gotten to meet most of his family on the McKendrick side. He just loved them all. We wish he could see them more often. They were able to come and we all stayed in a beach house out at Jax Beach. It was a ton of fun as we enjoyed playing games, eating and visiting. We hope to be able to do it again soon.

His first sickness!!!

Okay, so I haven't been on here for a while so I have a lot to post. So bare with me. I will try to get the posts all in order.
Well Wake has been sick lately. He has RSV (bronchiolitis?). He had to stay one night in Wolfson's Childrens Hospital for observation b/c he had a fever and was wheezing pretty bad. He was such a big boy! I think I had a harder time with it than he did. :) He started to feel better after a few weeks and has now started to feel bad again. He just went back to the doctor and is now on breathing treatments 3 times a day. He is wheezing and coughing again. I worry about him so much and just want him to feel better. We go back next week to see if the treatments are helping. So lets cross our fingers.
