4 months old

I don't know how it is possible, but Conor turned 4 months old on Wednesday. In some ways, it seems like he's been part of our family for as long as our family has existed, but it also feels like he was just born. He continually proves to be a very happy baby (unless Eric is holding him when he's hungry; when that happens, take cover!!) and has a laid-back personality. Conor seems to interact with his surroundings more and more each day. He has taken to playing in our exersaucer (thanks for the hand-me-down, Troy & Staci!) and loves to laugh at the silly things his big sister does to entertain him. He can roll over (both directions), but tends to push himself around in a circle more than anything when on the floor.

On Wednesday, Conor had a routine checkup and was given a clean bill of health by his doctor; she was very happy to see how well he's growing (14 lbs, 8.5 oz) and that he's reached the milestones for his age (rolling over, grabbing at things, cooing, etc.). Of course, it does a mother proud to hear that her kids are doing what they should when they should! She did refer him to Children's Hospital, though, to see if they can do anything to help his acid reflux/barfing issue. It definitely would be nice to get that under control, but even if they do, I doubt we'll stop calling him "barfy boy" and singing the barfy boy theme song! It is just such a catchy tune. :)
