I have officially started back to work. The first week of school is finished with many learning experiences for me!!! Learning how much sleep I really need, learning to trust others, and most of all knowing that God will not give me more than I can handle!! My employer has an on-site nursery for staff children only. So that has been very convenient. I take Ben to school with me every day, pick him up for 45 minutes at lunch, then return him to the nursery for the afternoon. What a blessing the nursery is!!!!
Ben’s first week of school went well. He still seems to adjust to new people well, always having something to jabber about when he greets them!! He slept through his first fire drill, has come down with his first cold (and serious cough), which led us to our first “sick” doctor’s visit. Exciting stuff for the little man!!!!
We returned to the doctor today for his Four month well visit. He is officially 17 lbs, 8 ounces, which puts him in the 90th percentile for weight. His length is 27″, which puts him in the 97th percentile for height. And has an average head circumference . . . only the 50th percentile. Guess there were no surprises there, since he’s been in 3-6 months clothes since the beginning of July. AND is outgrowing many of those clothes already. We’ve tried cereal 3 days in a row now and he seems to enjoy it! He is also able to successfully roll from his stomach to his back and his back to his stomach. I’m sure as he perfects his rolling and starts putting them together, he will use it as a mode of transportation!! So the month of August has officially been the month of many firsts for him.Share on Facebook
