4 month old update

First off, sorry for being MIA! I started a new job last month at a nursing home & have been so busy! I miss all of you ladies & will try to do better with checking in when I can. My laptop is shot so I'm always mobile.

Forgot to update the other day but DJ had his 4 month appt on Monday & he now weighs 17 lbs & is 25 inches long. His head circumference was 41.5 cm. He did good with his shots all except for the last one. He is still getting breastmilk only with the occasional taste of sauces and things of that sort.

He really isn't too interested in food yet though so I won't push it. I believe he may be going through a growth spurt because he has been waking up to feed two times instead of once. He is in size 3 diapers & wears some 6-9 month sized clothes, 9 & 12 month clothes also.

I'm still stingy with him lol and no one has kept him except for DF & myself. I don't plan on letting him visit with DF's family without supervision because they don't know how to follow simple instructions when it comes to keeping Kyren so I already know they won't with him.

They keep asking if I'm going to switch him to formula, which I don't have any plans in doing so unless necessary but I wouldn't put it beyond them to go buy him some which is why he isn't there.

What a chunkers! Mine is a chunky monkey too and I love it! Sounds like he is doing awesome! Sorry your DF's family is so untrustworthy. At least you know they probably generally mean well, but it's disrespectful to disregard your instructions when it comes to your kids. I have family like that too and it's super frustrating. Congrats on the new job!

Congrats on your job!

I don't blame you for not wanting to leave him with anyone else. Ha I'm like that with all my kids. He's growing so much! That's awesome. I love seeing how all the babies are growing so well!!!

Sad sorry the family is not good at honoring your wishes! He sounds like a healthy little guy though! Congrats on the job too!
