4 Months Old!

So Knox is 4 months old now.  It feels like it was just yesterday that I had him.  He's growing so fast and turning into a little man.

Here is a recap of Knox's short life so far:
-Born on 9/24/10 weighing 6lbs 14oz
-Hospitalized for jaundice on days 3&4
-1st set of casts put on day 5
-3 more sets of casts changed weekly
-1 month weight= 8lbs. 5 oz
-Tenotomy surgery on Nov.1
-More castings following tenotomy..........too many to count because they all slipped off
-Flew to Iowa for clubfoot treatment on December3
-Flew back to Iowa for 2nd casting on Dec 10
-Flew back to Iowa and fitted for shoes on Dec 17
-2 1/2 month weight= 15lbs 8oz BIG BOY!!
-Soaked casts off on Dec 31, put into Mitchell's shoes with the bar
-January 14, 2011- Rolled over for the first time
-4 month weight= 16lbs 11oz 26"long  75th %

Whew.......time is flying by.  Knox is starting to coo and blow bubbles.  He rolls over all the time now.  He is getting pretty good at sitting up.  All in all, a healthy boy!
