Weekend tidbits volume 2

My weekend tidbits are delayed this week because well it's been a crazy busy week at work and I haven't had time to update.

My mom came to Atlanta to spend time with us and my aunt and cousins.

If you really want to see how much Ben has grown since he was born, check this out...
It's hard to imagine him being so tiny, since he gained weight so quickly.

Here they are again after dinner at Mimi's

Sunday my little man turned 4 months old and once again he has grown so much.
He now weighs 14 pounds 10 ounces (almost 9 pounds over his birthweight!) He is 24.5" long.

On his 4 month birthday he mastered rolling over from his back to his tummy...
Doesn't he look so proud of himself for his big accomplishment!
He now rolls over both ways and is thoroughly enjoying doing it every chance he gets!
We talked to the doctor and we are going to wait on starting baby food until he is 6 months old. I was a little disappointed because I was looking forward to him trying foods but I think it will be better to wait especially since I have digestive issues (Crohn's) lets not push it too early.


  1. Hello Melissa...the pictures of Ben with Mimi are just adorable...I love your blog. I didn't remember you having Crohn's. My sister has had it since she was in her early 20's. She's had many surgeries and some really bad bouts but right now she is in a good place. Several years ago she saw a doctor in Atlanta and I'm not sure what he did or if they tried a new medication but she seems to be doing good right now...I hope yours in under control and you have good doctors ... it makes a huge difference. Hope Craig and Ben are well and you all have a great weekend...Caryl aka(Anonymous)

  2. @Caryl, I found out I had Crohn's a little over 2 years ago. I caught it very early and we were able to get it under control quickly with medication. My doctor has been great and I was very lucky that it stayed under control during my pregnancy.
