i was just thinking that it's been a while since i've posted milo on here...i mean, he was in our family pictures, but i haven't focused on him for quite some time...so here he is, and his new trick. he tries to stick his whole fist in his mouth. little does he know that one day that could win him big bucks in a talent contest or something. go milo! reach for the stars! anyways, he will be 4 months old on the 27th and he is growing very fast! i had to take hadley to the doctor last week, and just for fun, i asked if we could weigh milo. the child weighs 14.9 pounds, while his 2 year old sister weighed 20.9 pounds. he has already doubled his birth weight and he's 3 1/2 months old! don't they usually do that around 6 months?? anyways, needless to say, he is a healthy big boy. i seriously must be making cream for him to drink! milo is also sleeping through the night and has been for like 3 weeks now! (it's my other kids that need to learn to do that, then we could all have some peaceful nights of sleep!) the other kids did not sleep through the night till way later...like at least 9 months, so to have milo doing that...well, let's just say it's a BLESSING! mama was not doing to well when she was getting up every 2 hours to feed the kid. (maybe that contributed to his weight gain??) he has also started rolling, although i've never seen him actually do it...when i go to get him in the mornings, a lot of the times he has rolled onto his back (yes, he is a belly sleeper...all my babies have been, as they sleep sooooo much better that way...please don't call cps on us...thanks!) so, he's just laying there on his back, looking up at me and smiling...i put him on his belly during the day, when i'm watching him, and he never rolls though...so, apparently, he's a closet roller. he is such a joy to have...and i seriously catch myself just staring at him nearly 80% of the time when i'm around him. i know he's mine, but i think he is so handsome! i just love my little quarter-chinese kid!! ( i need to print this out and read it again when he's 3, right? cause i'm sure i won't have these warm, fuzzy feelings still :) )
well, today is a day filled with laundry (what day isn't with 3 kids??). we are preparing to leave for california on wednesday...gotta run!
