First Food

Devlin had his four month check-up today. He weighed in at 14.1 pounds and is 24.5 inches long. The pediatrician was very happy with his progress. We were told that we could start Devlin on solid foods; cereal, fruits, and veggies. We started him tonight with some cereal. We have been adding cereal to Devlin's bottles since he was 2 months old to help with his spitting up (read projectile vomiting). We knew that he would tolerate the cereal well, we just had to see if he would eat it off a spoon. There is a slideshow on the right.

Double Trouble

Devlin wanted everyone to meet his cousin Lex. Devlin's Aunt Staci brings Lex over when she watches Devlin. Lex is 21 months old and is a little ball of energy. Devlin loves to watch his cousin play with all his toys. Lex is very nice and shares his toys, but Devlin insisted that he needed some of his own.
Since, Bryan wants Devlin to start walking as soon as possible (Bryan figures walking is the first step to potty training) Devlin got his first walker. Unfortunately it is a piece of junk! Devlin is very disappointed because he loves to be pushed around the house in it. Of course, every time Bryan pushes Devlin around, he runs into something, like a wall or fridge. Devlin does not approve of his Dad's driving skills. The other issue is the wheel always pops out of the socket. Bryan is going to return the walker and we will do some research before we buy a replacement. Until then, Devlin will have to lean on Daddy when practicing to walk.

16 weeks

Devlin is 16 weeks old today. We estimate he weighs around 13 pounds and is about 25 inches long. We will have exact numbers in 2 weeks when he goes for his 4 month check-up. Devlin recently started wearing his 6 month old pjs and may soon be in 9 month old (he has very long legs). He is still wearing his 3 month old onesies, but should be moving up to the 6 month ones soon. Devlin is becoming more active and is showing more interest in toys.

He has mastered rolling from his tummy to his back and is working on rolling from his back to his tummy. Devlin has been sleeping in his crib for the past month and just recently he started sleeping through the night. He is now sleeping about 10-11 hours at night. In the beginning, Devlin was placed on a sleep positioner in his crib, but we discovered that after an hour or two he would wiggle off it. He has also been known to kick his feet through the slats on the crib. Bryan found him stuck one day, so we had to put a bumper on his crib. Devlin is a huge fan of bath time. I think he knows that he looks adorable all wrapped up in a towel.
