Well, today was the day! We took Preston in for his custom DOC Band! He will have it about 8 weeks / 23 hours a day! He did excellent! He didn't fuss, pull, grab or cry! I must admit, he is a little cutie in it! We will get used to it for the next few days and go back next Wednesday for a check. Once all is good at that appointment, I will begin decorating! I have some inspiration.... now just need to go buy my supplies! :-)
He knows he looks cute!
He fell right to sleep in it! Good sign!

Our little man is 4 months old today! It's been a fun month as Preston has continued to put not only his hands in his mouth but anything he can get in there... specifically burp clothes and toys! We are working on rolling over and tummy time with him, which admittidly are not his favorite but he is a good sport! He loves his play matt, bathtime, and the "skinamarink a dink-y dink" song! He is laughing and giggling and just being a GREAT baby!

Today was the day! Preston went to Cranial Technologies for his DIC Scan so they can make his customised helmet.... He did amazing and never fussed. They put this stocking type thing over his head (don't worry, he can fully breathe through it) and then took 4D pictures to get a complete view of his head. Preston spent most of the time trying to lick the bank robber stocking on his head, which was rather funny! From this scan they will build his "halo" and we will go in next Wednesday for the fitting. From there, we will go in weekly to have him and the band checked and tweaked as needed. Our check book is a little lighter, but it will be worth it in the end (we hope)! HAHA! We know for a fact that he will be the cutest DOC Band baby EVER!

We spent Saturday afternoon with the Tesoriero's and Miss Mia and Miss Gabriella were practicing their future babysitter skills excellently! They read a total of 8 books to Preston and successfull put him to sleep for his nap! Then Miss G helped me put a little sleeping nook together in her mom's room where Preston could sleep! These girls will be fabulous babysitters in the future! Mia has already quoted us a rate of $100.01 for 5 babysitting sessions! SOLD! We are gonna hold her to that! :-)
Our wonderful neighbors told us about a swim class in Southlake called Bathrime Babies. It is for 2-6 month old babies and it is set up as an intro to the water type class for little ones. So after being on the wait list for a few days, Jason and I finally got into the class (which is free and on Saturdays). In the class, they sing songs, get the kiddos used to having water splashed on their face, try to work on holding the wall, and more! Here are some pics or our little man in his first official class. Sorry the pics are not the best, it was hard with the big windows behind them bringing in all the light!

Thank you so much to the Horst's for another wonderful weekend at their place!!!! We appreciate you guys and always love staying at the "Horst Resort"!!! Preston did well in the pool again, though he isn't to the splashing and laughing part of pool time yet.... he didn't scream and fuss so another success in my book!
