That's right! Landon turned 17 weeks & 4 months old this week. He has been wanting to sit up more. He's not sittin up on his own yet, but he loves to be propped up so he can watch everything going on. We sat him on the couch to get a few pictures and he was mesmerized by the TV (explaining picture #1). He definitely knows what he likes and dislikes. He dislikes seeing his bottle when he is really hungry, but does like it when he is eating his bottle. He does like to play on the floor with his toys and in his new exersaucer, but doesn't like playing when he is tired. His likes and dislikes are all normal baby things, but it's fun for us to see him putting things together. His coordination is much improving. He reaches for things with purpose now, and usually has good hand-eye coordination.

4 Month Check-up
Landon went to the doctor for his 4 month checkup this week. Again he flirted with all of the nurses - gave them smiles and talked to them a little bit. Dr. Hanson said that he's doing great. Everything he is doing - including his excessive drooling - is normal and his development is right on target. His head measured at the 25th percentile, his weight (14 pounds 6 ounces) is at the 50th percentile, and his length (26.5 inches) is at the 95th percentile! Yes, he is a looong baby. He doesn't get that height from his mom :). The only thing that didn't go so well at the appt. was the shots - he SCREAMED bloody murder and continued to cry and carry on until we were a few miles from the house.
Enjoying the warm weather!
Meeting Mr. & Mrs. Thompson
Landon met some new people this week. Mr. & Mrs. Thompson came to visit. They were the very nice people who gave Landon the super cute personalized elephant. Larry works with Dave and it was so nice for us to finally get together and meet each other. Landon smiled and let them hold him the entire time they were here. He eventually got tired and took a little snooze on Dana's lap - so cute!
