4 months

Adam had his 4 months check up today. Apparently what I thought was a tooth is just a cist and Dr Hurley said he could drain it but it woudn't do any good so I asked why Adam has been crying alot lately and he said probably just because he is 4 months old. GREAT But on the plus side he is 15 lbs and 26 inches long. But of course he hated the shots. He got really red in the face and screamed for about 5 seconds. Then the binky made it better. :D Don't know what I would do without binkies! Probably pull all my hair out!

Adam Loves Jenna

Anytime Jenna is around Adam, he always has his eyes on her. Whenever she licks him he gets a big smile and it's like he doesn't want her to stop. I of course have to stop her because she usually goes straight for his mouth.

Adam's First

Lately Adam hasn't been sleeping as well as he had been so I thought it couldn't have been a few things. Not having his own room, not getting enough to eat or just teething. So yesterday for the first time I gave him rice cereal. He loved it and ate almost all of it! He did sleep a little better last night but before I put him to bed I decided to put some baby orajel on his gums. Well as I was putting it on I felt a tooth! It's on the top right side and it's just a little tiny white dot right now but you can sure see it and feel it! It's so cute! He must have been hurting pretty bad though cuz he woke up at 3 am and cried for about 20 minutes so I put more orajel on and gave him a little tylenol and he went right back to sleep.
We were supposed to hear back on the house last Friday but somebody from the bank was out of town so our realtor told us that now it will be this Friday that we find out. She has confidence that everything will work out so then it will take 30 to 45 to close. I can't wait to find out!

Much Better

Adam has been doing much better today. I try and go a little longer between feedings just so he'll stay on and it has worked so far. I'm going to give him a formula bottle just before he goes to bed every night so that he'll sleep longer and see how that helps. He's been waking up more during the night. One reason I think is because his binky falls out. Last night he woke up every 4 hours :( Not good! I want him to sleep through the night without waking up!

Adam and Nursing.... blah

The past couple weeks of nursing have not been fun. Adam doesn't stay latched on, he just sort of plays. So after about 2 minutes on one side I give up and try the other. Sometimes he'll stay latched on for the other side but only for like 2 minutes. And then he would get mad if I stopped. Well last night he woke up about 1:15 and usually I would stick the binky in and he would go back to sleep. Well, not this time. He decided to keep crying. So since I was really tired and didn't want to be frustrated while nursing I decided to make him a formula bottle. The bottle we had been using he wasn't taking and I figured out why. It came out too fast and the nipple was far too big. So I got the ones for 4 months and up and he drank it all right down and went back to sleep. And then I couldn't sleep for like 2 hours. It sucked. Part of the reason was that I kept thinking about whether or not I should stop nursing. There are many pros and cons which I'm sure you can figure out what they are and then I figured out what I'll do and see how long I can handle it. I will give Adam a formula bottle every other time he eats. Then we'll see how we both handle it. I wonder what Rusty will say because formula is kind of expensive. But it just doesn't feel like he is getting enough to eat when it's just me. I guess we'll see. I would really like your opinion about this so please leave a comment. :) Feel free to say what you want. It won't hurt my feelings.

I don't know why I didn't make this post on Tuesday but on the 8th Rusty and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary. We went for a drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon and then afterwards went to Ztejas Southwestern Grill at the Gateway. If you have never been there then I highly recommend it. It is very good. I love my husband so much and am so greatful for all that he does for me and my family. I love you Rusty! Here are some of my favorite pictures from that day!

The House

Our real estate agent has told us that the owners have the house had an 80-20 so the bank that had the 80 part has accepted our offer and now we are just waiting on the 20 bank. I don't see any reason why they won't accept our offer since the bigger part of the loan did. So if everything works out the sellers want to close by mid October! I'm so excited! We have a pretty good feeling that it'll work out! I can't wait to find out!!! Hopefully within the next week we'll hear from the other bank!
