Hi, I'm Gideon,

Hi, just wanted to update date everyone on Mr. Gideon.
He is now 5 months-at his 4 months appt. he was 17 lb 6 oz and 27 inches long.

He is currently loving the exersaucer

He has two bottom teeth ( don't look too hard they are not in this picture)
But this smile is always worth it

drooling and working on teeth

He found his thumb and loves to chew on it

And he loves his toes :)

Gideon continues to be such a joy to our family. He is laughing, talking and singing to us everyday. Both Ben and Asher love getting Gideon to laugh and "talk" to them. He is still sleeping about 9 hours at night-I told you he is a joy :)
He is now rolling tummy to back and back to tummy it will be too soon when he is crawling. We continue to do cloth diapers and love them and I might have finally settled on one kind=Grobaby.
At 4 months Gideon started having really dry skin, red and scaly all over his body. So I researched eczema, allergies and oil/lotion. We started using Organic Coconut oil all over Gideons dry skin and I have been dairy free for three weeks. The dry skin might be a milk allergy so if Gideon can't have milk neither can mommy-I am missing cheese :( but Gideons skin looks amazing. No more dry red skin, it has all cleared up.
Gideon continues to grow, and so does our love for this beautiful little gift from the Lord!

:) I love the picture with him holding his feet!

Glad to hear the no-dairy diet is keeping his skin clear, but no cheese doesn't sound fun at all!
