Under the Weather

I had a pretty rough weekend. I have had a cold for about 5 days now but the last couple days I wasn't feeling good at all. I just wanted to be held all the time and I cried a lot. Mommy and Daddy gave me Tylenol and that helped for a while. This morning I had a fever so we went to the doctor and guess what... I have a double ear infection! Yup, an infection in BOTH ears! No wonder I've been so miserable the last few days. I'm on antibiotics now so hopefully I'll start feeling better by tomorrow night. Mommy and Daddy also put a humidifier in my room to help with my congestion so I think I'll sleep a lot better tonight. Well, off to get some rest. G'nite!

P.S. The doctor said I weigh 18 lbs 2 oz!!!

Granddad and Aunt Lacey visit

I turned 5 months old yesterday (also Easter)!! I'm really working hard on learning to roll over and sit up. I'm also getting pretty strong at pushing myself up when I'm on my tummy. I will probably be on the move in another month or so.

Granddad was here visiting last weekend. We had SO much fun! He stayed home with me Friday while Mommy went to work. I slept on the couch right next to him for a couple hours. Every now and then I'd stir and he'd just put his hand on me and I'd go right back to sleep. Here's a picture he took of me when I was sleeping there:

Granddad is so funny...he just makes me laugh and laugh. I love to cuddle up with him too. Whenever he holds me I just nuzzle into his neck and relax. I miss him a lot when he's gone. I wish he lived closer. I will get to see him in about a month though when we go to Baker. Here's a picture of us:

Aunt Lacey was here this weekend. She's a lot of fun too. Every time I look at her she makes me smile and laugh. We went shopping on Saturday and I helped her spend Granddad's money :-) She's going home tomorrow and I'm going to miss her. I will probably see her in Baker too though. I don't have any new pics of us right now but here we are on my birthday:

My 4-month Check-up

I'm feeling much better today. My cold is almost gone...just a few sniffles left to clear up. Its too bad mommy caught my germs - probably because she was cuddling me the whole time I was sick.

I went to the doctor yesterday for my 4 month checkup. I found out I weigh 16 lbs 14 oz (75th percentile) and I'm 26 inches tall (80th percentile). When I was born I weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 20 inches tall. I can't believe how much I've grown! I had to get 3 shots when I was there. I cried pretty hard during the pokes but I had to have an oral vaccine too and it tasted yummy and made me forget my shots. My doctor said I'm a very strong and healthy boy!

Last night, I was sitting on mommy's lap and she and Isabelle were playing tug-of-war with one of Isabelle's toys. Izzy kept grabbing the toy and thrashing her head around over and over. Every time she did that I would laugh out was SO funny! Here's a picture of me and Isabelle about a month ago...

Ok, I'm off to bed. Granddad is coming to visit tomorrow so I have to get rested up!

My first cold :-(

Well, I definately have a cold and mom was right, it is NOT fun! My nose is stuffy and I've had a little fever all day. Despite all that, I was in a good mood and laughed at mommy, daddy, and Izzy a lot!

I also worked on a new milestone....I tried to roll over! I was on my back and I got one foot under me and pushed as hard as I could. I tried a couple times but couldn't quite roll. I'm going to keep practicing and hopefully I'll be rolling all over the place soon!

One week down...

I made it through my first full week at daycare! It wasn't so bad after all. I'm extremely tired though....I have to get up at 7 now and I used to sleep in until 9! At least its the weekend now so I can get some rest.

Me, Mommy, and Daddy went out to dinner tonight with Grandma, Uncle Gar, and Trinity. I was really good and barely made a peep. I smiled at everyone for a little while and then fell asleep while everyone ate. I always fall asleep in restaurants; I think its because I like the constant hum going on around me.

I was a little sniffly when I woke up from my nap this afternoon and now Mommy's worried that I'm getting my first cold. I'm not sure what that is but it doesn't sound fun. She said I need to get lots of rest so I'm off to take a bath and go to bed. G'nite!

Getting Stronger

I sat up on my own today! It was the first time I stayed put when Mommy let go of me! Of course she didn't go far...after about a minute my muscles got really tired and I started to tip over. Sitting up is so much fun!

I've also been making progress towards crawling during tummy time. I've been working hard at pushing myself up on my knees and elbows and rocking a little. When I really focus I can scoot myself backwards a little bit :-) I don't care too much about rolling over though. When I'm on my tummy I just work on pushing myself up and then get frustrated when I get worn out. I prefer to just lay on my back and laugh out loud at the funny faces Mommy makes at me!

My first day at daycare

Well, today was my first day of daycare. It was hard being away from Mommy but I really like daycare. Actually, I think it was harder on Mommy than it was on me :-) I was only there for 4 hours and it went by really fast. I played for an hour, slept for 2, woke up and ate and Mommy was already back! Maybe this won't be so bad after all!

Welcome to my blog!

Hi everyone, my name is Kasen and I'm 4 months old. I can't believe how fast these 4 months have gone! There have already been so many amazing things that have happened.

I wanted to start a blog as a journal to help me remember my journey through childhood. I hope you'll check back often to see what I'm up to!
