An exciting week!
Wow, today Landon Jacob Wilson is four months old! I can't believe it, time has flown bye. I want to put a pause button in my life and a rewind, but I also look forward to watching him grow into his own little self. I pray that he is a caring and sweet person that leads a Godly life. Kids are cruel and it breaks my heart to hear of how mean some kids are to other kids. All you can do is try to do the right things yourself, be there for them, and ask God for strength. I think one of the most important things in life is to pray for and with your child. They should see the reality of your faith as your turn to the Lord in prayer when hard times or problems come into your life, or just with help making decisions in everyday life. I think you should encourage them by your example to praise God for the blessings of every day life. I know that life doesn't come with any guarantees, but I want to know that I have done everything that I can.
Please pray for someone that is dear to my heart. Pray that she has strength to overcome the obstacles in her life and lead the life God wants her to. One day she will be proud of who she is and the person she has become, but being young is hard.
We have had a very busy week. Landon went to the doctor on Thursday and had his 4 month checkup. He said he was doing great. He weighed 16.2 pounds (90th percentile) and was 25 inches long (50th percentile). He talked to us about his food and told us to start with veggies first, because if he gets used to the sweetness of fruit he might not ever like veggies. So he has tried sweet peas, carrots, and green beans. He really makes a mess and tries to put his hands in his mouth every time he gets a bite. So tonight I put a towel around him like he was getting a haircut and he couldn't put those little fists up there! It worked out so much better and he ate the whole jar. I have to give him is bottle first and then his food because he is really hungry and gets mad because he can't get the food fast enough. He is eating very well off of the spoon to only have had food for about a week. He is getting cereal in his bottle once a day before bed and has been sleeping from about 8:30pm til 6:00 am.
