Porter had his four month check up today (you know, because he's closer to five months than four). He is doing well. He weighs 22 lbs 7 oz (99.8%) and is 26 1/2 inches long (85%). As we all know he is huge and very cute! He did a good job with his visit. He smiled at the nurse and the doctor plenty. He had to do one oral immunization and two shots. :( He wanted nothing to do with drinking the oral one. He made quite a face and then tried to keep his mouth closed when he realized it wasn't his normal food. He only cried when the nurse intially poked him and was over it after a minute. Too bad those shots make babies tired and fussy the next day or two afterwards. Anyway, he actually weighs less than Vance did at this age (one pound less). I guess that's where the .1% comes in. Haha. He weighs about 3 pounds more than Tanner did at the same age. If I had a small baby like my niece I just wouldn't know what to do with him/her.

Isn't this the greatest picture you have ever seen? Stephen probably won't be excited that I posted this picture, but I don't care because to me this picture represents so much. Love, companionship, work... just to name a few things. Do you want to know what I was doing while Stephen weeding away? I was lounging in a camp chair playing with our baby (and sneaking a picture of my wonderful husband). Weeding is just one of the many things that Stephen does around here and I am so grateful for it. He faithfully takes care of the trash and does the dishes every night too. He always gives the oldest two boys their baths. Oh, there are countless things he does to help me out and I am so appreciative of it all. I am the smartest woman in the world for picking him to be my eternal companion. I am so blessed.

Porter came into this world four months ago today! Time flies, but at the same time it's hard to remember what life was like before he was here. Porter is working on sitting up all by himself and continues to grow, grow, grow! Does anyone else see some resemblance between Porter and Elder Holland?

I always hear how change can be a good thing. Change is scary and unknown. I don't like it, but I realize that it helps us grown. With all the changes that have been unfolding in our lives the last few months I decided a new blog design should be one of them as well. :)

P.S. Stephen is back in school pursing a degree in Information Technology with an emphasis in Networking. I don't think I've mentioned that before.
