Four Months Old

Aiden (AKA Baby A) is 12 lbs 11.5 ounces and 23.5 inches long. Aiden has rolled over, but doesn't seem to do it regularly or consistently. He is SUCH a morning person! He smiles and laughs and is just all around, perfectly content! Aiden didn't have much of a reaction to his 4 month vaccines, which was nice. We have been concerned about Aiden's flat head. If you remember our photos from the NICU, you will notice that Aiden was always laying on his back (Izzy, on the other hand, was in this contraption that allowed her to be on her belly and knees). I really think that was a major contribution factor to the flat head. So the doctor looked at it, and thought it wasn't too bad and that if we continue doing the things we started a few weeks ago, it should be fine (we have to roll a little towel up to put it under his neck, and have him lay on his side, etc.). That was comforting! Aiden is really getting his own little personality and I just adore it. He is funny and easy-going and is just a little love; I cannot imagine a more handsome, perfect little brother for Connor. I love him so much!

Isabella is 10 lbs 7.9 ounces and 23.75 inches long. She has rolled over, but doesn't seem to do it regularly or consistently. Izzy is NOT a morning person. She fusses and gets angry and takes a while before she'll be smiley. Poor girl; she had a horrible reaction to the vaccines. She was fevery, tired, grumpy, and nothing would make her happy at all! But, when she hasn't just been injected with four vaccines all at once, she is the most happy-go-lucky, smiley, beautiful baby! I love her so much!

They don't really interact yet. I can't wait for them to really realize that there's another baby in their crib with them. They touch and hold hands and cry if one of them isn't in the crib with them, but they don't look at each other or smile at each other or talk to each other YET. I can't wait for that! I just sooo want all my kids to be friends!
I didn't get to go with them to their four month appointment, but I'm excited because we scheduled their 6 month appointment for when I'm off of work!! We also scheduled Aiden's kidney check in December and I'm hoping to schedule my MRI for December (if you remember, they found a tumor in my kidney when they did my kidney check after Cole passed away). We haven't been able to schedule Isabella's appointment yet, but if we could get all the kidney stuff done in December - that would be great!
