Not Enough For Caleb

Caleb is now 4 months old.  He has been fussing a lot at night.  I wasn't sure if it's tummy but I started to finally realize that he wasn't getting enough milk nursing.  He certainly wasn't having enough wet diapers.  Finally, during Sunday School at church, I drove to the store to get him some formula.  I felt so bad about it.  I'm not a staunch nursing mom it's just that I do believe it's some great stuff!  Plus, formula soooo nasty tasting.  Bleh.  I gave my church nursery the bottle and they said Caleb chugged it and wanted more.  NOW, he's exploding in his diapers!  LOL.  Not trying to gross you out but that is a good sign.  He's in the 25th percentile so now he should finally gain some weight.  He's also sleeping better at night so I'm getting some rest too.
Ryan just loves, loves, loves to hold Caleb.  Ryan is homeschooling here while holding his baby brother.  Caleb thinks it's pretty great too!
Ryan climbed into the crib with Caleb to read to him and hold him.  I love Ryan's soft heart. He said he wants a lot of kids some day.  Some lucky girl gets to have Ryan some day!  For now, I'm his main lady.  :D  Thank goodness.  I still got these little guys for a decade or so. 

Anyhow!  It's been pretty warm here.  So much so that my kids have been having a blast making mud pies in the back yard and just making a mess in general!  Letting the kids go mud crazy makes a big job for me when its cleanup time but who cares?  They are having tons of fun and using their imagination.  I love how they are playing together making up stories together.
