I got a big boy!

Charlie is doing great gaining weight. He gained 12 ounces in one week! The rice cereal in his milk is helping him to keep his food down. Since he is on the rice cereal we had to start giving him apple juice. (He was getting constipated.) He now weighs 8lbs 14.5 ounces!!

Charlie went to his first wedding this weekend (10-24-09). He was very good during the wedding, he was wide awake and didn't even make a sound. Then he slept through the whole reception.
October 25, 2009 Charlie slept in his crib in his own room! He only got up once around 3:30a.m. and didn't wake up again till around 8! He is doing so good! I am so proud, I wasn't sure how he would do sleeping in his own bed, with no one else in the room. He done great. Daddy was home last night for this also. He got up with Charlie when he woke up and let Mommy sleep. Mommy needed the sleep, she thinks she is getting sick.
Mommy left Charlie for the first time yesterday. They had went to Walmart and out to eat with Grandma and Grandpa Dodds, and Chad after church. They just car pooled there, then Grandparents dropped Mommy and Uncle Chad back off at the church. Mommy and Uncle Chad followed them home in seperate cars. It was a little step for Mommy.
Charlie will get to celebrate his first Halloween this next Saturday. He has a pumpkin outfit and a Skeleton onsie and a "First Halloween" onsie.
Mommy has her follow up appointment tomorrow and will be going back to work soon. She really isn't sure if she is ready to leave Charlie or not, but she has to be.

Charlie is much more active and alert during the day! He will stay awake for a couple hours at a time. He is also starting to make all these little noises, they are so cute! He has his time where he just loves tummy time and also just laying on his back looking around!
