4 Months Old!

In a highly unusual move, I am writing about Magnus' 4 month-iversary near the actual date. Shocking. 
This little guy is growing up so fast and he has learned so many things. He rolls from stomach to back easily. He is close to rolling from back to stomach. I'm not excited for that milestone because he is still swaddled at night. 
Magnus had his 4 month check up today and he is doing really well! 

He weighs in at 15 pounds 12 ounces. 

He is 24 3/4 inches long. 

He nurses for 15-20 minutes every three hours or so. Sometimes his middle of the night feeding lasts longer, he sleep eats. 

Magnus wears 3 month sized clothes with a few lingering 0-3 month sized pants, onesies and pajamas. He has a few 3-6 month items that fit really well. 

He wears size 2 diapers, while Mina wears size 3. 

Magnus laughs and coos; especially when he is tickled. His armpits and chin are especially ticklish. 

For Family Home Evening we walked to the park. I wore Magnus in the Ergo:
and James played with Mina. She loved every minute of it!
James had fun too!
Happy Four Months Magnus!

Life with a Toddler

Mina is at that exciting age where she wants to do everything. However she doesn't understand that she is limited by her size, abilities and age. It's frustrating for both of is when she can't communicate what she wants to do or eat. Of course, she changes her mind so frequently that who can tell when she gets what she wanted?  We made banana bread yesterday, she helped quite a bit with the mixing. She likes to stir spoons in bowls while saying, "Mix-ah, mix-ah!"
She loves to look in the oven when there is something cooking inside. 
I asked her to look at me and smile here is what I got:
So cute. 
She requested that we add stars to the bread. They were leftover from her birthday (more on that at a later date.)
Everything tastes better with sprinkles, right?

Three months old

During Magnus' third month of life we went on vacation to Bryce Canyon. It was kind of stressful but mostly fun. 
Magnus spent most of the time in the Ergo. 
But he had a few outings in our arms. 
It was easier to wear him especially when we hiked. 

It was a really fun trip. I'll write about in more detail later. 

Back to the three month old. 
He is very easygoing. 
Mina loves to "Hold Mag-us"
He wears size 2 diapers and a combination of 0-3 month, 3 month and 3-6 sized clothes. It's kind of crazy that some of his 0-3 month sized stuff still fits. 
Here is a side by side of James and Magnus around the same age. I think we can see where he gets his hairstyle!
I put Magnus in Mina's doll stroller, probably for the last time. He's getting big!
He has also figured out how to roll over from his stomach to his back. 

We love our little man!
