16 Weeks & Thanksgiving

Logan turned 16 weeks old on Thanksgiving. He had a check-up the Monday before at 15.5 weeks and weighed 11 pounds 6 ounces. Not a great improvement, but it had only been a few days on the reflux medicine. Since then he's pooped everyday. He'd previously been going only once a week or so. I know no one else cares about this, but I like to record the details for myself :) He has also been eating A LOT. This is great for weight gain, but no so great for nursing. I've had to start supplementing, pumping and taking fenugreek again. I weighed him two days ago at 16.5 weeks and he was 11 pounds 12 ounces. A 6 ounce gain in a week, fantastic considering that last month he only gained 10 ounces total. However, it's an average amount and just keeps him at the 5th percentile instead of bumping back up (or worse, dropping even lower).

Enjoying some tummy time.

First Thanksgiving. Of course, I didn't take a shot of all four of us. Someone please remind me to do this at every holiday! I'm mostly upset because I actually did my hair and put on make-up which doesn't happen very often these days :)

Snuggling with Aunt Emily.

This uncooperative little girl did not want me to take her picture (Can you tell?). She had a super cute turkey bow she refused to wear. And, it took all of us to convince her to wear this outfit. Ans has a mind of her own, that's for sure!

Playing in the sand table.

At the end of the day, all tuckered out. Notice the new outfit. Logan leaks out of his disposable diapers every. single. time. he poops. Now that he's going everyday it's getting a little ridiculous. We use size 2 Pampers Swaddlers, but they are obviously not working for him. Anyone have any suggestions?

While Ans had fun attending Camp at Nina's...

...Logan got to see what it may have been like if he'd been born first. Lot's of individual attention!

Well, I guess not entirely. If he'd been born first he wouldn't be wearing hand me down Christmas PJs in November. I promise, we don't make him wear any of her obviously girly ones from this age :)

15 Weeks Old

It's been an eventful week of life for this little guy. We finally got him on some reflux meds and he is a new baby during feedings. No more screaming while eating and he's nursing for at least 20 minutes at a time instead of 10 minutes or less. Because his eating time cut by half over the last month or so he has also dropped a bunch of growth percentiles. In the last month he only gained 10 ounces and weighs 11 pounds 4 ounces (5th%ile!!! Poor little guy). It's all sorted out now, so hopefully he can catch back up quickly. Other milestones are that he has started doing this cute little thing where he sticks out his tongue. He sucks on his hands all the time and still (like his sister at this point) has no interest in rolling over. He sure is cute though :)

Other stats: Head, 41 in... Length, 24.5 in

Super Cute Cousins

Landon LOVED Logan. It looked like he wanted to eat him :) He is so smiley and cute. Logan still isn't sure about his new cousin. Once they get a little older though I bet they'll be friends in no time.

We tried unsuccessfully to take a group picture. Ans refused to stand up and be photographed, while Logan screamed (it's hard to tell, but he is). It was right before we were about to head back home and I think the lack of schedule was beginning to show.

Ans perked back up on our way out to the car. Maybe it was the yellow hat.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center

Saturday we took the kids to Loggerhead Park to see the turtle rehab center and play on the playground. It is SO much nicer than the last time I was there.

Afterwards we had Chickfila at the mall. Ansley was really excited about the fountains, but not the glass elevator it took to get down to them :)

Allie vs the snake

Don't worry, it wasn't poisonous... and got away safely :)
