A few new things.

Yesterday was an event. Alex went to the pediatrician for his four month well baby. He got his shots and did well the rest of the day by sleeping. Last night wasn't so hot he got up a bunch and had a low grade fever..... those things are normal.....these are the new things.... He weighs 12 lbs and 10 Oz's, he can come off the Zantac med, we can reduce his calorie count on his formula to the normal mix ratio, and he can start eating rice cereal.... it is all so exciting to have normal baby things for him. He was in the 15Th percentile straight across the board for his height, weight and head circumference.We have to get past the post shots blues but I think he will be fine. His cardio apt is Monday I wonder what they will say. His ped said "It wouldn't surprise me if they want to give you a date on Monday" so I guess we'll see.

Hey to the Homer Family!!!!! By the way those Homer men suuuurrreee look like eachother that is for sure. It was so good to read about your family is doing. It was also really, really fun to be able to hold and feed Alex over at Melinda's house last week. Alex is getting so big. We hope and pray that his Dr's appt goes well on Monday. We will be anxious to hear how it went......yes we will even read the blog in Germany. We are way excited for the opportunity to go pick up Ben from his mission.
