Sorry I haven't posted the last couple days. I have finally got a chance to sit down and reflect on everything. Kannon and I went to the pediatrician yesterday. We found blood in his diaper so we had to get in a day earlier than intended. The Dr. said she is going to get us hooked up with a pediatric gastroenterologist to make sure everything is working how it should. And if all of that wasn't bad enough already, he got his 4 month shots too. Poor guy, he had a rough day...Besides all that, he seems to be doing okay though! He is still a happy baby, and loves to smile! While we were in the pediatrician apt. the Dr. began asking me A LOT of developmental questions. Does he smile? Yes, all the time, especially at his car (a wall decal next to his diaper changer). Does he giggle? No, but he gets really close, like he really wants to! Does he coo/babble? Yes, he is getting to where he will do that a lot more. Does he grasp objects? No. Does he roll over? No. Does he hold his head up on his own? No.
Before I had Kannon I thought all of this stuff was VERY important. I guess to a certain extent it is...but there is also a line to be drawn. The last thing I want to do is become obsessed with what Kannon isn't doing. Instead, I am obsessed over all the things that he can do. He can give you the biggest grin ever, he can make a mean diaper, he is the best snuggle bug ever, his startle reflexes are out of this world (he even scares himself sometimes, either by sneezing, coughing, or even an occasional toot), he rarely skips a meal (he loves his bottle), he hardly ever cries, and for the most part he sleeps through the night, and the list can go on forever! I pray everyday that he will get the strength to do all those things as far as sitting up, rolling over, walking, etc. However, I don't focus my attention on when he will do those things....I just love him for who he is right now. Today is what matters.
