They grow up so quickly…What the last month has entailed:
Survived his first New Years Eve bash
Also survived hours and hours of bowl games- just hanging out with dad
Fully grasped the concept of rolling over. He dislikes tummy time so much that he’ll always roll to his back. He’s very close to going the opposite way as well.
Loves the bumbo- he’s just small enough and squirmy enough we now have to watch him closely in the chair because he tends to try to get out of it.
Found out the hard way, he really, really doesn’t like Chinese food!
Discovered the Johnny jump up and has been entertained continuously because of it
Watched his first Baby Einstein DVD- kept his attention for a short while.
Takes his pacifier in and out of his mouth and then drops it as well
Sleeps without being swaddled- hooray!
He’s an active sleeper. I’ve found him in all sorts of positions within his crib including both legs out of his pajamas and even an arm completely extended out of the neck of his pajamas. It couldn’t have been comfortable!
Loves something soft against his face to sleep
Experienced colder weather than most sane individuals: -35 going to church one day
His tongue is always out of his mouth
Still throws up- an awful lot, but doesn’t get the distance he once had
Refuses to sleep a whole lot. He does decent at night only wakes up two times but daytime is a whole other ball game. Yesterday he slept from 10:20am to 11 am. That was it. The whole day. If it only happened once I wouldn’t be concerned- however this is not an unusual occurrence. There’s been many a days where there is a 15 minute cat nap and that’s it. From 7:30am to 7:00pm. He just doesn’t like to sleep- figures he’s missing out on all the fun! Definitely something on the list to discuss with the pediatrician!!
And when he’s not sleeping, his stomach is full, his diaper is changed, when he’s not cold, not tired, or bored and when Hallie is not being abusive to him, he can be a happy/smiley baby. The trick is to find that 30 minute window every day!!We love this little guy!
wow he's a good looking kid.
Daylynn was the same way about sleeping until about 6 months. Then the flip switched, and she would take 2 naps each an hour to two hours. Sanity finally came back! I asked my Dr. about it before, and all he could say was, "some babies don't like to nap." That did NOT help me at all! Hopefully, you get a better answer from yours, and if so, please let me know!
He just gets cuter and cuter!
He is a gorgeous baby, Kara!!
Holy cow! Four months! Where does the time go? What a cutie!! I definitely think he looks more like you than Hallie did. It made me laugh to read about all the positions you have found him in while sleeping. You did good Kara… he is a doll!!
How I loved reading about Hunter. What a little doll he is. I know you two are good looking but wow, your genes mix really well!
Oh I love to see that boy! Some day we'll get to meet him, but for the time being it's sure great to see him in cyberspace.
What a cutie! I love to hear about his progress. Sure miss you guys!
