4 Month Check-Up

Yesterday Dominick had his 4 month check-up with Dr. Paul. His weight: 14lbs 14 oz height: 25 inches. He is in the 50th percentile in both height and weight. Dr. Paul said that Dominick is doing great and is perfect (which I already knew that ;) ) He then got 4 shots. He screamed during them but a few minutes later he was fine. He was a little cranky afterwards but went to sleep early (which I thought was great until he was up every 45 minutes starting at 2:45 a.m.). So needless to say, we are very happy that his growing and doing just fine!

Dominick Rolled Over!

On Sunday, Dominick finally rolled over belly to back three times!!! Since he has been doing so well with pushing himself up while on tummy time my Mom thought Sunday morning might just be the time he will roll over. We put him down and in less than 2 minutes he was on his back. I thought it was because he was half on the matt half off but my Mom swore he really did it on his own. So back to the tummy we go and sure enough he did it again. Yay Baby!!!! Daddy was busy still getting us moved so I called him to tell him. By the time Daddy got home Dominick was not wnating to show off his new trick so hopefully Daddy will be able to see it soon.

Dominick is finally tolerating Tummy Time!


Dominick has not liked tummy time very much. I was starting to get a little worried becuse every time I did tummy time with him he would just lay there and fall asleep or he would lay there and scream. Our routine for bedtime this week has been... I give him his bottle, then we sit up and hang out for a little bit, then go to my room and lay on the bed and play and then we roll over and for tummy time. We have been doing much better with tummy time now. He plays for a few minutes and the passes out. He is also starting to push himself up and hopefully he will rollover soon!

Getting Started

Ok so this one will probably be a little long.... I am going to try and keep this updated as best as I can. This blog will mostly be about Dominick because well.... he is what our world is all about.

Quick catch me up on Dominick... He is 4 1/2 months olf and has the cutest personality ever. He is a major talker (which I think he gets from me). The kid can out talk me! He has been talking since he was probably about 2 months old. His favorite thing to do right now is chew on his hands. Oh and he also likes to try and blow raspberries. Dominick has been starting to sit up since January 2nd. Daddy was working very hard with him while we were in Georgia and he did it once up there to show off for me. He has been getting better and better every day. Yesterday I got my first laugh from him. It was awesome! Of course the way I got it was because I was talking about the dogs (which he absolutely loves). Now to the not so good.... Dominick suffers pretty bad from acid reflux. He has been on cereal in his bottles since he was about 6 weeks and was on Zantac but it wasn't cutting it so now he is on Prevacid and Zantac. We had an appointment last week with the Gastroenterologist, Dr. Koutouby and I think starting next week we will be giving Dominick the over-the-counter dose of Prevacid which means.... feeding Dominick pears every morning!!!! I will definitely post pics of that mess. On Monday, Dominick has his 4 month check up and will be getting 4 shots :( but only if he is better from his cold. Dominick had his first major cold these past few weeks and had bronchitis and laryngitis. Poor guy!!! He is doing much better now and has stopped the Albuterol. Well I think that is it for now but will keep you all posted on his doctor visit Monday and all his new adventures.
