I also bought a tablecloth, but it doesn't make for a good blogger background. :-P
Elijah had his 4 month checkup this morning. He weighs in at 16 lbs 4 ozs, about 75% for both height and weight. He's also scooting. Dr had him on his tummy to check head control, and he rested on his elbows for a minute before getting his knees under him and she had to flip him back over before he scooted off the table. Anytime I lay him down, he instantly flips over to his front. Last night he was laying on his playmat, which has two soft bars that cross over head, from corner to corner. We have a few toys hanging from the bars for him to look at. Anyway, he was laying there, and started kicking his legs, and he was kicking one of the bars, which made the rattle shake. So he'd kick, and watch the rattle, kick and watch. Then he looked at the rattle really hard, flipped over onto his back (landing directly under the rattle), grabbed it with both hands, and began to chew on it. :-) Smart AND cute! Good thing I'm not partial.
I got up at 4:15 this morning! 5 was fun yesterday, but today was a little too early. I'm glad this schedule is temporary. Tonight some astronauts, including Niel Armstrong, are going to be on base for a meet and greet. Bob and the children want to go, but Bob is supposed to take his final exam tonight. The teacher did say that if he couldn't get off work in time he could make up the test this weekend, but Bob would rather get it out of the way.
Saturday the University of Cambridge is putting on a science thing (it was actually all week)... I haven't even mentioned it to Bob yet. I know it will be crazy crowded.
Well, I better get on with it.
