We interrupt your regularly scheduled Nauvoo Highlights to bring you the munchkin update.
Today we had our 4 month check up. The doctor filled out his medical paperwork to send over to the agency so they can begin filing the finalization paperwork. His exact words were "He's clean and perfect."
Gideon now weighs 15 lbs. 6 oz. which puts him in the 60th percentile for weight gain but he's 26 1/4 inches long, so he's in the 97th percentile for length.
In the last month he's really started to use his hands deliberately. He grabs for toys (and jewelry and hair.) Almost everything goes straight to his mouth. He holds his own bottle about half the time. He sits up very well with a little support. He laughs and smiles A LOT! Likes playing peek-a-boo and when he's in his car seat or laying down he tries to sit up. (He just doesn't have the ab muscles yet.) He's also starting to do this thing where he's scooting around by moving his arms and legs, but not really crawling yet.
Plus, the doctor confirmed my suspicsion today that he's beginning to cut teeth already. Ei-yai-yai! I'm not ready for this. It's way too fast!
Also, we're happy to announce that the sealing will take place on Saturday Sept. 20 at 11:00am in the Rexburg Temple. I'm going to try and get some little invitations made up, but in the event that I don't get to it in time, consider this the blanket invitation. Let us know if you're coming!
