At his 4 month well baby check, Ian weighed in at 16 lbs. 12 oz. and measured 24.5″ long. He’s wearing 9 and 12 month clothes these days–with the 9 month outfits having a Hulk-like fit–which makes me unbelievably sad walking into a baby section at the store and realizing Ian can’t fit into half […]
Ian Mac is 3 months old! This month’s big achievements include learning how to laugh and getting better at pushing his upper body off the ground during tummy time.
