17, 18 and 19 weeks...

Okay, I thought I would not do the weekly thing, but I can't stop! Just took me a bit to get this done!! Can't keep up with the day-to-day record, though.

Hmmm... these past few weeks... Had fun with the weather now getting cool. Nate looks super-cute in long sleeves!

Went to our first Halloween party (of 3) with the mom's group at church. It was fun being around all the kids. We also went on a walk with the Gretencord's (and had our first romp down the slide), and then found the Higgins' family, and Thuy invited us for lunch. I think that was the best tortilla soup in awhile. I've decided to try a new soup recipe each week - what are your favorites?

Nate's been having a little trouble sleeping. I think it is just because it gets colder at night. I just bring him close and he goes back to sleep. How do y'all keep the kids warm?

We also had another Halloween party with our neighbors, and then one at our house on Halloween - The 2nd Annual Dobson/Williams Halloween bash. We had fun! At least I got to drink (well, just 1 glass of sangria) this year.

These past couple weeks also included 2 baptisms (Sam's and Joshua's), our 4 month appointment (doing well, Nate just needs to put on some more weight) and a couple lactation consultant visits. We have found out that I need to make more milk, and I'm taking some herbs to help. They are not doing the kick, so we are now supplementing a bit with formula. Hopefully in a few weeks Nate will be back on track and I'll be making more milk.

Nate also ROLLED OVER!! Yea! He didn't like tummy time on Saturday, November 8th, so he just kept rolling on his back. He also is serenading us in the car (with or without the radio) and has found his tongue this week. What a fun time!!

Here are pics from week 17 and 18:

feeling all grown up...

We did it - we bough a freezer! Well, it was the smallest at Sam's, but we now have one.

And the reason...we purchased a quarter of a calf! Yes, a happy calf raised up near Granger. Good grass-fed beef! Soo yummy! Ry made the best burgers!! Can't wait to try the steaks, roasts and other cuts! Any recipe suggestions?

4 month update...

Well, Nate had his 4 month check-up this week! He is growing in length but hasn't put on much weight. We visited with the lactation consultant and now I am on some herbs, pumping, increasing my protein and liquids, and on a 2 to 2 1/2 hour feeding schedule (and sometimes more often). Hopefully this will help him put on a few pounds. Please say a few extra prayers that we can get this under control.

The pediatrician wasn't very worried - developmentally he is exactly where he should be, and he is growing. We'll see what pans out in the coming weeks.

One of our neighbors put up white lights this week. I was hoping that it was for Halloween, but they were white icicle lights and a white christmas tree of lights in their front yard. I'm trying to convince myself that they were dressing up their house for Halloween, but the lights were still up today... craziness!!
