Chasing adventure & living mindfully while parenting through mental illness

Olin 4 Months

I can't believe it. Olin is already 1/3 of a year old. Nick's cousin just had a baby, and I'm reminded of how fast they grow, how fleeting the newborn stage is. Olin is solidly an infant now. And he is SOLID! He is in the 50th percentile for weight and 85th for height. He has "forearms of authority", which Nick says he gets from "Papa Dan", his middle-namesake! Some other bits about him lately:

  • He is blowing bubbles and babbling like mad! 
  • He loves toys - stuffed animals, rattles, keys, you name it. 
  • His red hair has all fallen out, except one long bit at the front. I can't tell what it will grow in as. 
  • Our apartment is SO HOT. Olin's body temperature throws off the balance, especially if he starts crying. We joke that he is Jack from The Incredibles. He even looks like him!
