Age: 3.5 months, 16 weeks
|got my dukes up...better watch out|
Milestones: L rolled over for the first time this past saturday which was Sept 10, 2011. He was doing tummy time and just rolled over! He did it again 3 more times and I have not gotten him to do it since...he knows I'm trying to record it so he isn't cooperating. He also grabs at stuff more and brings objects in his hands to midline and sometimes puts them in his mouth. I am also convinced he is teething already. I asked the dentist when I went this past week and she said her son had 4 teeth by the time he was 4 months...Lord help me and my nipples should this be the case!!
Eating: He is eating a 6-7oz bottle before bed on the nights I work and then 4-5oz bottles any other time he is hungry usually around 2 am and 6 am. When I don't work I just nurse him and I am so glad that it is no longer taking 45 min for him to eat. He will be done in about 10-15 minutes and I love it! It makes nursing him in public outings much easier as it doesn't take up half the day LOL
Sleeping: He has slept ALLLLL the way through the night a few times!!! Like from 9pm till 6am and then sometimes back to bed till 930 or 10 am!! Its not consistent but such a blessing when it does happen. We put him to bed awake and he puts himself to sleep. Most nights he just stomps his feet a few times and then is out. Some nights he will fuss a bit but usually its only for about 5 minutes or less. We have also moved him into his own room. I think this was harder for me than it was for him, He didn't seem to care one bit but now if we try and put him in our room he WILL.NOT.SLEEP so he stays in his room. We turn on his white noise, his turtle light, the fan, and a lullaby cd and he knows its bedtime. Also, we stopped swaddling him...my baby is growing up too fast!!! He has taken to all these changes like a champ and sleep time really is not an issue there have only really been a few nights here and there that he protests
What I'm Wearing: I am wearing size 6 months clothes from carters and some 3-6 month clothes in certain brands and some 6-9 month sizes...This totally blows my mind that my sweet lil man is getting so big, but I love that he looks so cute in all his button down shirts and blue jeans
Dislikes: Being left alone, being too cold, being put into the carseat, once he is in and the car is moving he is usually ok but should there be a stop sign or red light...its over and a meltdown ensues
|My sleepy boy|
I love you sweet boy and love to watch you grow and change each and every day, you are getting so strong and I love how much you love to be with me, it breaks my heart when I leave you and when Im at work I miss you like crazy, at least you are asleep most of the time I am gone. I love getting to know you more and more each day you are such a sweet baby and I love every minute I have with you.
