We took Eli to the doctor for his 4 month check up on the 25th. He was 16lbs 10 oz. It amazes me how close in size the 2 boys are. He is 6 oz away from what Ethan was at 4 months. He got his shots yesterday and did really well! Hardly cried at all. He really just did this little pouty face. I was impressed.
Sorry I haven''t updated in a while! We''ve been super busy with doing things around the house. The fence is almost done! Woo hoo! Let''s see, we''re still working on potty training Ethan. He''s doing great though! The weekends are the easiest and today he''s only had 1 accident. Now if we could just get him to tell us when he has to go, he''d be done. He''s added so many new phrases to his vocabulary too. It amazes me some of the things that he says. Right now his favorite movie is Monsters Inc. That''s all we get to watch on movie night. But that''s ok. We like it too.
Eli''s growing like a weed! We had to change his 4 month appointment from April 11th to the 25th so he''ll be more like 4 1/2 months. I''m guessing he''ll weigh somewhere around 17-18. He''s such a chunky monkey. He''s so giggly too. His baptizm went so well and he was soooooo happy during it! I need to get some pics from family members because I forgot one of my many cameras. Too much on my mind that day. Ha! He had his first overnight with Grandma Sheryl last weekend and I think (hope) that went well. She also had Ethan and cousin Lexy so she definitely had her hands full. He''s been teething like crazy and drooling all over the place so I''m hoping he gets some teeth before Ethan did. We made the switch to cloth diapers too! And I really thing he likes them. I actually put one on Ethan last night (they''re 1 size which is super nice) because he''s been peeing out his pullup at night and voila! No wet pj''s this morning! Woo hoo makes for a happier momma that I don''t have to wash the sheets everyday. :) They have cloth training pants that have snaps at the sides that we''re looking into. Just something little that we can give back to the environment.
We''ve been working on going green around the house. Cloth diapers, reusable or paper sacks, no additive detergent and no additive all purpose cleaner. I''m currently reading a book about green gardening. Once the fence is finished I might put some of that to use. We''re also working on getting our recycling bins together. I think the little things that you can teach your kids is what matters most. Hopefully they''ll catch on. :)
