Four Months.

Happy Friday! I feel like we're just blowing through these weeks and months now!
Travis (L), Reid (R)

Stats - Reid weighs 14lbs (45th percentile) and is 24 3/4" tall (50th percentile). Travis weighs 13lbs 14oz (25th percentile) and is 25 1/2" tall (75th percentile..WHAT!).

Dr. Smith saw some white bumps on their bottom gums which means we are officially teething. YIKES! 

Reid is definitely the chattier baby and loves the sound of his own voice, whether its babbling or screaming, but both can melt hearts with their smiles and giggles!

Eating - We transitioned to the next Moms On Call schedule once they started sleeping through the night, which increased their bottles to 6.5oz each time. Each bottle is of breastmilk, except for a formula bottle before bed due to not producing quite enough for that last bottle of the day. Eating at 7am, 10:30am, 2pm, 5pm, 8pm.

I forgot to mention last month that I am no longer having to eat dairy and soy free. After three weeks of it and having Reid on dairy free formula, I started reintroducing my breastmilk back to him. I accidentally ate something with butter in it and didn't see any side effects in him. So I started eating a little more and a little more dairy. Still no side effects. So, I think maybe I jumped the gun and he was just going through a gassy, fussy period. So happy to be eating cheese, butter, and soy again!

Diapers - Right at the time that they turned 4 months old, they started wearing size 3 diapers. 

Clothes - Wearing clothes anywhere from size 3 months to 6 months.

First sicknesses - Travis got a 24 hr stomach bug and Reid got a cold that we're still dealing with a yucky cough from (going on 2 weeks)

Exciting moments - Travis rolled from stomach to back for the first time February 17th, but hasn't again since then. He's also pretty close to rolling from back to stomach. Reid seems to have no interest in either.  

Travis and Reid were baptized on February 19, 2017 at Westminster Presbyterian Church. Travis wore a bubble that Cameron's older brother, who Travis is named after, wore when he was baptized. Reid wore a gown that my granddaddy, sister, and I wore when we were all baptized. They behaved so well! When they were presented to the congregation, Reid even gave out a little giggle. Following the baptism, a beautiful reception was held at Cameron's parents house on Johns Island. It was a beautiful, sunny day!

Travis' excited face
He makes this face when he kicks a lot in the bathtub. It's the cutest!

Reid still knows how to work the pouty lip

They wore their Shake and Bake onesies on this day which was my dad's birthday (he gave them the nickname). This was also the day of the Daytona 500.
