Overdue four-month stats

Hello out there. As Matt so articulately laid out in his last post: we are busy. Although we have indeed had an especially busy stretch with Halloween and friends visiting, Ashley and Donnie staying for a weekend to go to a UNC football game and, presently, Mimi being with us to love on the boys and help watch them while I attended a two-day CLE, every and any day feels full of activity. Feeding, bathing, playing, napping (the boys, not us!), cooking, laundering and so much loving. We wouldn't have it any other way, but I'll just tell you that come 9pm, you will find two very tired parents, usually headed to bed.

But I needed to at least take the time to give you Evan's four-month measurements. Perhaps word has gotten out through other channels, but we continue to have a little giant living among us. At four months and six days, he weighed 19 pounds 7 ounces! That's off the charts, plotted above 100th percentile on the pediatrician's growth chart. His weight is also remarkable in that it's almost two pounds bigger than his brother at four months, and Tobin was always an exceptionally large infant. His length (26.5 inches) and head circumference (17.5 inches) are pretty much the same as Tobin's at this age.

So Evan is growing splendidly, if not making our arms a little tired from time to time. By all other accounts, he is doing great physically, even avoiding catching our first family cold since his birth. The one exception is that he is having some minor digestive issues (I'll spare you the details as it involves talk of poop!), so we've been tinkering with my diet, trying to figure out if something I'm eating is the source.

Oh there is so much more I should write here, but I'll need to save that for another day, because while Matt is entertaining Evan, and Tobin and Mimi are out for a walk on this lovely fall day, I shall shower at a somewhat leisurely pace.
