Rigby's 3 month photo shoot

I took Rigby to JC Penney's for his 3 month photos. They're super cheap so it was a "must" for us poor people. I liked the way they turned out too.

Roll-ee Pole-ee

Rigby started rolling over just after he turned 3 months old and hasn't really stopped since.  Every time I lay him on his back to play he flops over.  I've even been finding him on his belly in the morning when he wakes up.  It scares me a little bit...sometimes I wake up just to check on him to make sure he's still breathing.  The doctors just scare you to death about SIDS and warn you to definitely not sleep them on their tummies or with blankets or toys...not to use baby name it.  They put the fear of God in you.  Geesh.

Rigby's been teething lately too.  I think the little guy can get a better bite on his fingers when he's on his belly.  He's constantly attacking his fingers and chewing and drooling.  His gums are a swollen too so those teeth should be popping thru any day now.   

Teething has also been affecting Rig's sleeping.  He was sleeping 10-12 hours solid each night.  But since this teething started he's been waking up every couple hours and having diarrhea.  It's so gross.  His little butt has been so sore!  I always thought teething causing diarrhea was an old wives' tale but Rigby has been pooping for about 9 days straight usually more than 8 times a day/night and is not sick.  It's nuts!  I took him to the doctor and he wouldn't admit that it was teething causing it...he said maybe it was viral and wasn't concerned since he's obviously still gaining weight. The little guy is still happy and smiling and eating like a champ so I guess all is well.

Rigby is 4 months old

Time keeps flying by and my little baby is already 4 months old!  He's growing so fast -- and I just hate it.  Derek keeps saying he can't wait until next year when Rig can do more...and I'm wishing things would slow down.  I love that he's still my baby boy, and it honestly makes my heart heavy to think of him and Rowie getting big.  I love this age...everything is exciting and such a joy. 

Rigby had his 4 month appointment on Monday, and he's still the fat kid :)  He weighed 19lbs 12 oz and was 27" long and is off the charts as far as percentile.  He's longer and heavier than Rowan was at 7 months...and I remember thinking how big she was.  How funny :) I was looking back at pics of Rowan to see if her and Rigby looked a lot alike at this age...and of course they do.  I'm posting a pic of Rowan at that age too because she had such a sweet little face.

Hillbilly Hulk

Remember the Incredible Hulk?  He would turn green and outgrow his clothes...

We've started cutting the feet off of Rigby's jammies "hillbilly style" so he can wear them longer.  The little guy outgrows his jammies so fast that I can't keep up.  Yeah, we live in Wanatah :)
