Dr Austman says: We've got a big boy!  I knew he was growing like a weed but was really surprised that he had put on 3 lbs in the last 4 weeks.  He is 3 pounds heavier than Asher was at this age.  Dr Austman said he looked great but she did notice something that my Mom had said something about a couple of weeks ago... he will only turn his head to one side.  Dr A said this is most likely the way he was positioned in the womb.  She gave me a few things to work on with him to try to get him to loosen up.  She said if he keeps doing it the muscles in his neck will tighten and it will take some physical therapy to fix.  Other than that he looks good and we'll go back in 2 months and see Dr Bash in a couple of weeks.

What he's up to: Little man is wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes but he is outgrowing them fast! I pulled out the tub of 6 mo clothes to go through today! If he keeps up at this pace they won't be in the same season even though their birthdays are just 2 weeks apart. I would hate to have to buy a bunch of new clothes when we already have so much. He is still in size 1 diapers but when box is empty we will be moving up.  Adler has been sleeping  through the night for about 2 weeks now and its awesome!  His naps are hit or miss during the day and I pretty much let him set his own schedule at this point.  He is also one spoiled baby!  I've held him for the last 2 months so now as soon as you set him down he is not a happy camper :( 
Last Friday Adler turned 8 weeks!  I'll say it again - I can't believe how fast the time has gone.  Here are a few pictures from that day
 I'm gonna say this picture pretty much sums him up these days.  He's fat & serious.  We can't get this lil guy to smile for nothin!  We've  gotten a few little peeks here and there but I cannot wait to get a big 'ole smile for Mama!
Morning routine:  Dancing with the boys in my room to Brantley or whoever is on CMT. 
 I feel the same way sometimes...

My niece had the same issue with her head and the way it was positioned in the womb. My sister took her to some therapy, but she was over and past it pretty quick! Love the crying picture... So funny!
