4 Month Check Up

My Little Emmett is 4 months old already!  I know it's said a lot, and it's very cliche, but it flew by so fast!

Praise God for how good he is!  He has blessed us with one healthy big boy!
Emmett stats:
Height 25 1/4in  (60%)
Weight 13lbs 10oz  (35%)

Dr. Dave (who we just LOVE) said that he's on the think side because of how much he moves.  I tell you what!  This boy is a mover and a shaker!  All he does it move!  He does not like to sit still, haha!
Dr. Dave also said that he's one of the strongest 4 month olds he's seen.  This made me very happy to hear.  He told me to expect great things from my boys.  I love hearing this.
Dr. Dave is always so impressed with Asa and how clever and smart he is, and has told me not to compare Emmett to him in that category.  But he informed me, that Emmett will definitely be able to hold his own when it comes to strength, and that I might find myself with an early crawler and walker!  (He also told me not to hold him to that, just in case)

We also got some shots today =(  Emmett did ok with them, I think.  At his 2 month check up, he was a mess, it was hard to calm him down.  This time, he cried, but stopped as soon as the band aids were on.  "What a tough guy" was the nurses comment =)

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the last 4 months

A special Thanks to Uncle Jordon who took the last 2 pictures =)

Emmett and Titan

For all you Cat Lovers out there =)

For our first Valentine's Day, Brandon bought a cute fluffy kitty, and we named him Titan.
Titan has been a wonderful addition to our family.  He loves to cuddle and meow, and sleep on my head.

After we had Emmett, Titan didn't get as much attention, and I don't think he enjoyed the crying too much.
All that has seemed to change.

Titan spends his nights sleeping on my head (sometimes Brandon's if I'm up a lot with Emmett). 
Usually around 6 or 630am, Emmett wakes up to eat, so I pull him into bed with me, and we fall asleep afterwards.  This is what I normally find:

But as of the past few mornings, this is what I've found:

It's as if Titan knows that he shouldn't get right on top of him, but to sleep above his head (a courtesy he's never given Brandon or I). 
And truth be told, Emmett usually wakes up within an hour after I feed him, but with Titan he sleeps for an additional 2 hours!
I think they're going to be best buds!
