We went to the doctor for Baker's 4 month visit today.
Our precious little weighs 14 pounds, 7.5 ounces, and is 25.5 inches long.
At our 2 month visit, our doctor refrained from giving us a growth chart, because children with Downs are often shorter in stature and grow at a slower rate.
But today, he slapped that bad boy in front of me.
Baker is the 50th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for his length.
Bow chicka wow wow!
Good stuff I tell ya!

We had a impromptu mini photo shoot before the dreaded immunizations.
There are no words to describe my love for my little angel baby!

My new fave.
You're gonna put that where?

Getting so big and so strong!


Yes, it looks like our doctor's office is in a dungeon.
But no, just an old building in a small town with the most talented and most nurturing doctors and nurses that take such good care of Baby Baker.
The shots were dreadful.
Baby boy cried and cried.
Mommy too.
Scooby Doo bandages, snuggles, and Bake's new friend Sophie
made those tears a distant memory (for him at least).
Stay tuned for new adventures in eating!
Doc gave us the green light for cereal and oatmeal,
and then a slow transition to veggies and fruits.
Time to pull out the Baby Bullet!
I am so excited!!
Happy 4 Month Birthday Eve, Sweet Boy!


  1. Love those little rolls on his arms!!!

  2. Aren't they the greatest!?! I love baby blub!

  3. I love the picture of Baker pinching his belly, as if saying, "look at me, I'm a big boy!" Good stuff Jennifer.
