Triton 4 months

Late again...but here is a little bit about our 4 month old Triton.

At 4 months, Triton...

...has managed to develop pretty solid head control despite rarely being forced to "exercise" with Tummy Time.

...weighs 14lbs 1oz and is 26.5 inches long. Apparently this makes him 25 percentile for weight but they must use a different scale for boys because he is definitely bigger than either of his sisters were at this age. Also he is 90 percentile for if he looks tall to you, it's because he is! still a very happy smiley baby (when he's not plagued by gas. Poor kid gets majorly sad then toots like you wouldn't believe! Then Aahhh! Sweet relief!)

...loves to munch his fingers. And slobber. Is he teething? Who knows, but the slobber is intense! In the words of Hibou, "mom, he's bubbling on his shirt!!!" getting pretty good at grabbing and holding things and even getting those things up to his mouth. The girls applaud any time he successfully picks something up.

....eats whenever he wants. Probably every 2 hours, but whose really keeping track?

....takes 2 or 3 naps (on those days when we are home and I actually put him down for naps...which isn't often) One is usually 45 mins and the other is longer. The 3rd when it happens is usually a quick 15 min bedtime nap. 

...goes to bed around 8 and gets up around 7 give or take. With a few breaks in between. The past week it's been a lot of breaks but I am hoping that is related to his cold and not a regular habit so we won't bother with those sleepless details :-) still very adored by his sisters.

I love these kiddos!

Odds and ends

Just some odds and ends from the month of November (possibly also the end of October).

The girls got new skirts and vests from Grandma L (who is loving retirement and doing wonderful things with her new found spare time)

Lovin' on triton.

Playing train. 

Sleeping through church.


It's only more than a month late, but I couldn't help but share some Halloween memories.

This year papillon was Aurora, Hibou was a Bumblebee and Triton was a Frog.

We first celebrated a week in advance with ZooBoo, complete with candy, crafts and free sunglasses!

Aunt Mimi came along for this adventure.

So did Mon Amour.

Then, on the actual day, we actually went door to door trick or treating for the first time ever. Oh the excitement!
We went with some friends and had a blast. And while there are still some parts of Halloween and trick or treating that seem bizarre to me (like, how old is too old? Clearly there is no limit. Also the scary costumes are usually the stupid costumes worn by the people who are just hoping to score some candy. Lame!) we really enjoyed it and will certainly do it again next year! 

My cuties!

Oh and we did end up with a ton of cady which we rationed out. Hibou, being the one with the sweet tooth, carried hers around and lined it up to count if over and over again. Papillon, being the one with a definitive sugar-max, would often ask for candy, taste and then leave it behind only to forget about it. Triton, as the girls would put it laughingly "only gets milk! He's too little for candy!"
