My little Elf and his 4 month doctor appointment

My mom got Sutton some fantasic "elf" hats. When she was in town last week she did a mini photo shoot of him sporting his new do. Isn't he the cutest?

The hats are a little big, but it could be because Sutton has a peanut for a head. We took him to his 4 month doctor visit and his head is seriously TINY. He's in the 5 percentile for his head. We weighed in at 14 pounds, 11 ounces (about the 50%ile) and he was 24.5" (25%ile). When Ford was 4 months, he was 14 pounds, 14 ounces and 27inches. So, the boys are definitely different in their bodies.

Sutton's visit was great. About the last week or so, he's started waking up in the middle of the night again and not napping very well. Well, fabulous Dr. Roy thought that it might be becuase I decreased Sutty's reflux medicine. And, guess what? He was right! We immediately upped his dosage again and now Sutton is sleeping, praise the good Lord for that! Mommy and Daddy were TIRED. We've come to the conclusion that Sutton's reflux must be pretty bad and we feel terrible that he was hurting this whole time and we didn't know.

Good news is that other than the reflux, Sutton is thriving. Ryan and I are SO blessed to have 2 happy and healthy boys.
