Will is 4 months old. He is by far my biggest child. At his doctor's appointment today he weighed 17 pounds, 1 1/2 ounces, which puts him in the 95th percentile in weight. He was 27 1/2 inches long, which puts him in the 97th percentile for height. With both Ellie and Max, they didn't quite hit the 20 pound mark by their first birthday (the weight and age minimum to be able to turn their carseats forward facing), but I don't think that will be a concern for Will. He may even hit the 20 pound mark before his 6 month birthday. It makes me a little sad to not be able to snuggle with a tiny newborn anymore, but I'm happy that he is growing and thriving.
He is still happy and content most of the time. He is developing a great smile and laugh. You can't help but smile when you hear his little laugh...it's contagious. He's working on cutting a few teeth, but none have popped through yet. I wish they would hurry up, so he doesn't have to be in so much pain.
The transition back to work hasn't been too bad. It is such a blessing to have my mom there with the kids while I'm away. I can focus on my work and not worry about the kids too much, knowing that they are in great hands...and the kids love spending time with their granny. And it is awesome to walk in the door and be greeted by happy "MOM"'s and big hugs from the big kids, and great, big smiles from Will when he meets my eyes. Love 'em all bunches!
