Felix weighed in at 17lbs 3oz at his 4-month checkup and he's 26 inches tall! What a BIG baby! He's such an easygoing, happy boy, one of those kids who is always ready to give you a smile. At 4-months he's grabbing for things and wanting to chew on toys. He's also full of very typical baby noises - coos, barks, snorts and purrs, he does them all. We sure are smitten!
We had a lovely visit from Grammie Daisy and Grampy Frank in July and August. They had many people to visit here in Oregon, but we were lucky enough to get them for several days at the beginning of their trip, and then Grammie Daisy stayed to nanny Felix for a whole week after Grampy Frank left. She and Felix got along surprisingly well and we all took advantage of the nice weather with lots of time in the backyard. We put Grammie to work in the garden too! (she's an amazing helper, fyi!)
