Tiny big man

Yesterday Asher had his 4 month check up. He came in at 25 1/4 inches and 12 lbs, 11 oz. He's in the 75th percentile for length and only the 10th for weight. So he's tall, but little. I'm okay with that. At 2 months, Asher was in the 25th percentile for weight and has dropped off some since then, so his doctor would like to see him pick up a little bit of weight. But, since he's rejecting formula and isn't interested in eating from a spoon yet, there's not much we can do about it now. He seems satisfied with what he gets and continues to gain weight, so there's nothing to worry about now. We're hoping hell start eating from a spoon soon.

On Monday I left him on his play mat on his back while I went to get a little snack. When I came back from the kitchen, I found him on his tummy - sneaky little guy. Most babies roll the other way (from tummy to back) first, but Asher didn't seem at all interested in that. Until yesterday, that is. Jeff put him on his tummy and all the sudden Asher turned over to his back. It ma be more accurate to say he fell over onto his back as he seemed as surprised by it as we were.

We've gotten a few more giggles and are loving all of Asher's many expressions.

Big Brother Eli is doing well, also. He's been helping in the garden and making sure that Asher always has his "pi-er" (pacifier). Yesterday, while we were sitting at the table eating lunch, Eli said to me, "Momma, that's hilarious." I can't even remember what it was in reference, but what three year old says "hilarious?"
