New things

A lot of things have happened and changed over the past week or so.
Since he's FINALLY healthy again, Elliot went back to the doctor today and got his 4-month shots {a month late}. He SCREAMED through the shots- way worse than last time. I don't know how those nurses can do it. I cry every time! He weighs 14 lbs 5 oz now- that means he gained about a pound and a half in less than four weeks! The doctor said he was doing really well. I was worried that he wasn't sitting up or rolling over yet- he said that most babies aren't sitting up yet at 5 months, but to keep an eye on the rolling. I'm doing everything right with tons of tummy time- so I'm sure he'll do it eventually. I'm anxious to see how he does when he gets evaluated next month.
Elliot has completely forgotten how to use his "inside voice" and now happily screeches through life {for hours on end}, I can occasionally coax a giggle out of him, he's working on rolling over and is SO CLOSE to doing it, and he can touch his toes now {which is ridiculously cute}. It has FINALLY started to warm up in northern Michigan, which means we've been spending a lot of time outdoors- and yes, pictures to come! Plenty!!
There's also been a big, big change in our CLOTH DIAPER stash. Since this post is already long enough, I'll spare you the details for now and do a post about our stash this weekend.

    What's the amber teething necklace all about? I keep hearing about them, but don't know anything about them

  4. Thanks! :)
    Amber is a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever... body heat {contact with skin} releases it's "powers." I don't know... Elliot seems to be less "teeth-y" when he has his on. And it's cute. So I'm a believer! haha!
