Four months already

Last week Orion went for his four month appointment. He has grown so much I can't believe it. He now weighs 13.5 lbs and is 25.5 inches tall! Time is going by so fast I don't even know what to do to absorb it all! He has been sick lately, but the doctor thinks it is just the flu. Today he finally seems like he feels better, which is great. I really don't like seeing my little boy sick. They started him on cereal at school yesterday, and it seemed to go ok so they are going to continue to do that. We started on it a couple weeks ago, but since he was sick he wanted nothing to do with it. Um....other changes....I'm waiting on Orion to roll over. I know he has the strength to do it (he can stand up all by himself!!) but he's just being difficult. I have a feeling though once he figures out how to do it I may be in trouble. He's so full of personality and already an obnoxious little thing. We may have our hands full! The only other exciting thing is that my sister Ashley is picking up Orion every Monday from school since she gets off at noon. It's great that not only is Orion not spending all day in daycare, he's also getting to spend one-on-one time with Ashley, which will help them bond, but also make it easier for me to trust leaving him with her as a baby-sitter whenever the time comes. I hate leaving him still, but he seems to enjoy the girls at school, and they all seem to love him, so that helps some. Orion is getting very close to sleeping through the night at this point (last night was over 6 hours!) so that's also a great thing. I'm desperately trying not to rush him into anything because time is going so fast as it is, but I do want to see him grow into an amazing little toddler...eventually. I'm thrilled to say though that Orion does love books, including comic books, and is also a total flirt. He smiles and stares at every girl he sees. I can only imagine what that boy has in store for me!
