Mason's Four Months!

Mason turned four months the day after Christmas. He and Brighton are becoming good friends. She loves to read to him, sing and give him as many toys as she can pile on top or around him.
I made these shirts for both of them by tracing their hands and a foot. I saw the idea here. I used some leftover brown fleece from Mason's Halloween costume and some knit scraps instead of felt. Dale made fun of them for wearing matching shirts, but lucky for them, they didn't realize it.
This past month, Mason started eating every four hours. Now he only eats four times a day, about 7 ounces at each feeding. He has his last bottle at 7 pm and is in bed by 8 or 8:30 every night. And that's it! He's down until 7 the next morning! We also gave him some rice cereal on Sunday to see how he'd like it. He seemed excited.
Hey Mikey, I think he likes it! He's talking a lot and laughing out loud, giggling so hard he will sometimes get hiccups and spit up because he's laughing so hard. He especially loves to be kissed in his neck fat. And boy is he fat! He's fitting his 3-6 month clothes pretty well. He may be in the next size by next month- we'll see.

Mason has been suffering from a REALLY horrible case of eczema all over his forehead and scalp. When he had his Dr. visit this month, she recommended a shave down and wrote a prescription for special lotion. Hopefully it will clear up soon!
So here he is, in all his beautiful bald glory. At least he's a boy and doesn't look too silly bald. Dale and I finally snapped a picture while the kiddos were wearing their special shirts I made for them.

Mason is doing really well. He weighs a whopping 15 pounds 8 ounces (60%) and is getting tall! He's 26 inches long (75%). I knew he was getting super big! He had some more shots at the Dr. too and did really well, only crying for like 30 seconds. Brighton's made him tough already!

The reindeer shirts are so cute! And it's okay that they matched... B's was very girly and M's was much more manly. Mason looks good bald, lucky kid.
