    So I am a few days late as usualy but atleast I am posting right?

    3.5 mo-has his 4mo check up in a couple of weeks and then we will see how big he is. He is somewhere around 13lb

    Fun Firsts: I was helping carson practice rolling over. He has been super close to doing it on his own (he would turn all the way on his side and even stick a leg over but his arm was always in the way and he wouldn't go any further). Well we were practicing where I would roll him to his side just a little past what he normally does and then let him finish the rolling over part. We were doing this off and on and then I would let him also do tummy time in between. Well one of the last times I rolled him to his side he finished the roll over and then he completely rolled over from his belly to his back! My MIL and BIL both got to see. It was awesome. As a first time mom its a biggie for me Especially when this month is high anxiety for me. Not because of Carson (he is a super good baby) but because at 3 months of age my older brother (who was two years older) and younger sister (who was 1.5 years younger) both died of sids. Well carson is 3 months old right now almost 4 months so I have high anxiety about that. I was the middle child and ended up my moms only living child.

    Monday moans: Umm we have been having a lot of storms lately and two days ago one of the water mains broke down the street while I was at work and DH was with lil man. In turn they shut our water off. Good thing we have irrigation and little man eats bottles with breast milk in it. So DH could warm up the water to warm his bottle in. By the time I got off work they had it fixed thankfully.

    Time for me: Umm eat chocolate. I dunno
