Lucky Number 13!

Oliver's 4m check-up was this past week and he weighs an even 13 pounds. :) It was a quick (and painless *wink*) appointment. Pediatrician told me to keep up the great work breastfeeding and no rush to start solids. (He didn't bat an eye when I exclusively breastfed Abbie and Isaiah to 7+ months. No pushing solids, no mentioning iron supplements... just a pat on the back. I *heart* him).

And since Ollie's 6m check-up would fall in January, he said we'll just hold off on it until springtime as there's no sense in bringing a healthy baby into a germy office during peak cold season. Did I mention I *heart* him?

I can't believe how big Oliver is getting. He's starting to reach and grab for stuff, and I don't think it will be too much longer before he rolls over. He's probably my happiest baby out of the three. That's not to say that he doesn't have his fussy moments (trust me, the past few days have been very fustrating!), but his happy moments are SUPER-happy. You just look at him, and he just melts into a smile, which in turn, melts my heart.

Here's a picture of him I snapped yesterday wearing a hat our dear friend Robin knitted for him. It was a total surprise, and I'm floored by her talent. It's the most perfect hat ever. And it's sooo soft as it's made with bamboo yarn. I just love the turtles!

I think I *heart* him too :0)

The hat is adorable! But those blue eyes have made me just melt, Eggs eyes were so blue when he was a baby. People still comment on them, though they have faded.
