Tanner couldn't be better!!

At this very moment, I can honestly say, that I have no worries with Tanner right now. He's taking 4 or 5, 6 ounce bottles a day. I've started to make my own baby food from organic fruits and veggies and he loves them. He would just eat small amounts of the jarred stuff. We've also started trying yogurt which he loves. Tanner was 12 pounds exactly at the doctors LAST Monday naked. This passed Friday I weighed him here at home and it said 12 pounds 2 and half ounces. Now, that's with a dry diaper and a onsie on which weighs 2 ounces. The scales do differ a little. I weighed him today and he was 12 pounds 8 ounces...minus 2 ounces for the clothes.'s a huge gain for him in just a few days!!! We're so proud of him!!! He's always loud and vocal too. He's becoming quite the motor mouth. The only time he's quite is if he's sleeping. He always sounds like he's yelling at us. We took a couple super cute pictures today. Tanner gets so excited when his brothers are around. Just their voices bring a huge smile to his face.
Of course Tanner and Mommy always make each other smile.

Our world isn't completely stress free with Tanner's good health. Poor Carter has always had some digestive issues that have just gotten worse over time. I won't go into too much detail to save him so embarrassment if he would ever hear about this blog post when he's a little older. I only mention it so that our friends and family may keep his health in their prayers.
That's all for today. Thanks for checking in on us:)
