I fully intended to post this a few weeks ago. My dude is over 4 months now. Le sigh. Such is life.
I'll say this every month. I know I'm biased, but my dude is the best. baby. ever. I cannot get enough of him.
Likes: Still a huge hand eater. He went through a straight thumb sucking phase. Not sure if that will come back.
He loves singalongs and being sung to in any way, shape or form.
Dislikes: Falling asleep during the day. He gets so tired, but he fights it because being awake it so much more interesting.
Sleeping? He was suuuuuuch a good sleeper at 3 months. I dreaded the 4 month regression. Most nights he slept between 8 and 10 hours straight. His bedtime is still later than I would like, but he ends up sleeping from around 10pm to 7 or 8am consistently. If the stretch is closer to 8 hours, he'll usually go back to sleep for an hour or two.
Accomplishments: His hand eye coordination is really improving. He starting to open his palms so they're not always in fists all the time.
He is consistently rolling from front to back. Once he even rolled onto his side, hung out there for a bit, and then continued his roll all the way onto his back. I considered that his first intentional roll.
In other news:
I went back to work March 9th. I'm only part time right now, but I've been able to bring him with me. He's doing great. He definitely has his rough days - like the day I forgot his pacifier. Poor guy refused to nap and was a huge crankapotomus. Squawk squawk squawk squeal squawk squawk squeal.
A few weeks ago he started spending one day a week with my mom. They both love it. Its nice for me to be able to get some work done, but I miss my little man and am always a little sad that I got to spend almost no time with him that day.
