This month started off with a pretty lazy Labor Day weekend. We hung around town. On Saturday night, we met up with the Clinard family to check out a Beavers game at PGE Park. On Sunday morning, we took lattes and bagels over to Mr. John and Miss Kirsten. Well, Mr. John only got half a latte--Moms ended up wearing the other half, apparently wanting to completely ignore that "CAUTION: CONTENTS ARE HOT" warning on the cup. I'm just glad I was safe and sound in my carseat behind her when the cup fell over!
On Labor Day, Moms prepared herself for her return to work. To celebrate, I have started waking up two times a night. Pops likes this too since Moms says now that she's back at work he gets one wake up duty a night. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to give them a break anytime soon. I'll keep you posted.
Luckily, I'm in the capable and loving hands of Granny V and Grandpa Jeff. They come over here everyday and take care of me while Moms and Pops are at work, and so far they're still willing to do it through the end of the year or so, depending on wait lists. Moms says it makes her feel a lot better not having to take me to daycare just yet. She also says that, while she would rather stay at home with me, it's waaaaaay easier to be at work! I'm trying not to take that personally.

Pops found this amusing. Me? Not so much....
Even less amusing: Timbers Soccer
September brings another thing to the Moawad Family Household that I'm learning lots about: FOOTBALL!
Sit me in front of the TV with a bottle in my vibrating chair and I can watch football for hours. Gee, I wonder who I got that from? (That's my first official attempt at baby sarcasm on this site--how did I do?)
Mr. John and Miss Kirsten brought my buddy Jack over to watch the first Sunday Night Football of the season. Right now, our 12-week age difference is pretty obvious, although we have similar interests even now. Check us out!
Can YOU tell whose parents are physically fit from this picture?
Baby, Get In My Belly!!!!
Later that same week, the Lesh Family joined Moms, Pops, Granny V, Grandpa Jeff and I for dinner. I got to meet PorterLesh for the very first time and I can tell we're going to be good pals!
On Sunday the 20th Moms made her first weekend call to the doctor's office when I broke out in my first case of hives. Moms still isn't sure if it's from the mango she pigged out on or if they hives were viral, since both she and Pops (and Granny V!) had colds during the week. I didn't feel too bad with the hives, but I sure freaked everyone out! Pops left for his Fall Classic golf trip with 11 of his closest friends so he didn't get to see how bad they got. Since I didn't have a fever and they didn't cause me any difficulty with breathing, we didn't go to the doctor. At my four month appointment on the 25th Moms showed the doc the pics and she didn't seem too concerned...
I loves my babysitters!
I Love Ducks, too!

Hives Day 2: Pops Got Out Just in Time
As I mentioned above, we went to the doctor this week on 9/25 to be exact.
I am now 17 pounds 6 ounces and 26 and one third inches. That puts me in the 90th percentile for weight and 89th for height. My head circumference is 17 and a half inches, which is in the 94th percentile. The nurse said this means I'm going to be really smart.
For my fourth month present, I got officially booted out of the bassinet in my parents' room and moved to my crib for nighttime sleeps. I've made the transition easy on them so far, but I'm not making any promises that I'll continue to just wake once a night for a snack.

On my play mat. I now grab things with purpose, and try to put everything I can in my mouth.
