Ryan and I took Owen to get his 4 month check up and along with that shots! At his 2 month shots he cried and slept all day so I was prepared to deal with crying all day again. Owen surprised me though he was so brave. He cried when he was shot of course but I picked him up after and comforted him and he was fine!! Yea. He had his whinny moments of course but for the most part he was fine. 4 month old shots aren't as bad as 2 month.
Owen is huge he is in 6-9 month old clothes already. He weighs 17 lbs and is 25 inches long. He is in the 84% for his weight (so he thinned out a little) and 77% for his height so he has a chance to be tall. We always say I hope he has Kevin and Trent genes for height.
Owen is thriving he can sit up for a few seconds by himself. He can also fall asleep with just a binkie, most of the time, he has been recently fighting me on his naps. However he is no good at Tummy time. The doctor says I need to do it more he is getting a flat head from being on his back to much. So all day long we spend a few minutes on our Tummys then switch to our backs for a break when he gets sick of it. Then after a few minutes back to the Tummy. We still do fun things like look in the mirror, go for walks, swing, play with our toys, sing songs but I had to go hard core on him since he fights me. He will stay on his Tummy a little bit longer if we have a musical toy to distract him or we play airplane on my legs. All day long we do Tummy Time this kid will like it, will crawl when he is suppose to and get the upper body strength he needs. I know he has strength in his legs because when he is sick of Tummy time he puts his head down and kicks with his legs and will move a little.
Lets all hope and pray he gets his upper body strength!

Ryan's Pharmacy class had a White Coat Ceremony on April 6th. What is a White Coat Ceremony? Its' kinda like a pre-graduation Ceremony. He doesn't graduate for another year, but at the end of the month they are done with class work and off into the real world. This next year he has 7 different 6 week rotations which are like mini internships. Since they will be working in actual pharmacy's they all needed there white coat. My mom and Becky came with me and Desi was nice enough to stay with Owen so I could enjoy it. Owens not good at sleeping with so many distractions and it was nap time.

Owen grows so fast he is 4 months old and I pulled out his 6-9 month clothes. Crazy! Anyways while I was going through his clothes that size, I found a swim-suit. I got excited people have been swiming here since February and they heat our pool so it can't be to cold. Since Ryan had the morning off today seemed like a perfect day. I wasn't excepting Owen to like it. I thought he might cry but it didn't seem to phase him. I told Ryan it must feel like the womb he woke up, I fed him, and then he was floating around in water. I will have to start taking him down to the pool more often.
