4 Months...

I can't believe another month has flown by! This month has definitely been an exciting one! Gage has started laughing at everything! It is the funniest thing I have ever seen. The other night Mom and I took him to Target and I was playing with him while we waited on her in the dressing room. I had him laughing so hard he couldn't catch his breath and everyone around was laughing just as hard. Isn't it funny how a baby brings such joy to everyone in the room? These people had no idea who he was!

I think I finally have his formula situation figured out. Remember when we went to the doctor for reflux and they wanted to put him on Nutramigen? Well, at first, I refused. They were telling me he had a milk allergy and I didn't think that was the problem. After a few days of the throwing up not getting any better, Michael talked me into trying the new formula. I HATED IT! It smelled to high heaven, it stained everything it touched, and every time I fed Gage he cried. It didn't take me long to realize it wasn't worth all that. We tried soy formula and it didn't help either. Thank stunk just as bad! So, I did what I wanted to do the entire time, and put him back on his Gentlease. He is taking cereal in every bottle now...he loves it! We have been giving him a couple ounces of pear juice every day...he loves it too! The spitting up is a lot better, but not gone completely. I'm pretty sure a little spitting is to be expected with a 4 month old. We go to the doctor next week for Gage's 4 month shots, so hopefully we will get a good report on everything. I'm thinking they will probably want to start him on some solids when we go. Part of me is really excited about another milestone, but part of me is so sad! My little angel is growing up right before my eyes :(

I'll do my best to report back soon with his stats for this month! Just a fair warning...he's a BIG boy!

One last thing...a picture of my little man!

He is soooo adorable!!! I love seeing new pictures of him! Hope he stops spitting up soon! Graham STILL spits up but thankfully not as bad or as much as he used to.
