Jace: 4 months


Weight: 14 lbs 11.5 oz  (30%)
Height: 25.5 in  (61%)
Head: 43 cm  (85%)

Jace is a big boy!  He's still average on the charts but our babies have always been so small, he's wearing things that Alex didn't wear until he was 8 months. It's crazy and I wasn't expecting it. So he's already outgrown SO many things that I hadn't gotten out yet. Sad! 

He's my favorite. I am so in love with everything about him. 

Update: He got thrush last week but luckily, I still had the stuff I used to knock Alex's out (after 4 months of taking Nystatin with Alex, the doctor finally gave me Diflucan and it was gone in hours) -- same thing with Jace. I gave him the Diflucan and within hours, ALL the white sores in his mouth were gone. Hooray! 

His eczema has been so bad since he was 1 month old that he just constantly has scabs and bloody scratches all over his body. The back of his head, neck, back, arms, back of knees and ankles, etc.  Poor dude. It kills me. And I'm sure that it has had a hand in keeping him up at night. He's so itchy!! We tried EVERYTHING and finally we got a prescription for 2.5% hydrocortisone. We lathered him in it on Tuesday night(his entire skin was sandpaper, red spots, and itchy eczema circles) and when we woke up in the morning, his skin was PERFECT! Not a red spot to see! Medicine is amazing!!

His tongue is majorly tied. Which we'll just watch and take to a dentist if it starts to hinder his speech or anything. He's been pretty good with nursing.  

Love this Squealer!!!

He looks huge to me! But Quinn is on the small side too so I can easily believe he's average on the charts. But he definitely looks like he could take her despite the two months she has on him. He's adorable as they come though!

Your kids are so cute Camille! I just read about Jace's tongue tie. You should talk to Rachel about it. She would have a lot helpful info for you. Both her babes and tongue and lip ties. good luck. You are such a cute mom!
