I’m sorry, but someone is just growing up without my permission!
Jake had a great 4 month check up today! With the exception of some mild torticollis (which we have to do neck stretches for now), everything was perfect! If you’re wondering what that is, look at the above picture. See how his neck is tilted more to the left side? Well, he tends to favor this side, so we need to make sure the muscles on the right side are just as strong. But seeing as how Jake excels in everything he does (have you heard his Spanish??), we’re not worried!
Check out these stats:
Weight: 12 lbs 13 oz (25%)
Height: 24 inches (25%)
Head Circumference: 16.25 inches (50%)
He also did WONDERFUL with his shots. We were shocked. Last time we definitely had the “silent cry” and were in hysterics for a minute. This time however, he started crying and then immediately smiled at his Daddy. What a champ!
I realize I desperately owe all of you some pictures. I apologize! Jake didn’t feel too well this past week so our sleep was limited. We sorta defined walking zombies and it was wonderful to finally get more than a few hours of sleep last night! I love how God works…just when we think we can’t possibly take anymore…He gives us a great night of sleep and we have the chance to recharge.
But before we continue…

Umm, really? Not as cooperative as we were in the 3 month pictures! “Look at the camera? Nah, let’s try to get my toes in my mouth instead.”
