WEIGHT: 15 lbs 6 oz
FOODS: Momma’s milk
BREASTFEEDING: 4 months strong!
WORDS: Such a talkative little man! No legit words yet, I don’t think, but I swear I’ve heard “Momma” amongst the babble. I’m aware I’m crazy.
MOVEMENTS: He’s starting to be able to kind of sit up if I put him like that. Also becoming very grabby. Not specific – just reach with open hand & close fingers around whatever is close. However, he can take his binky out of his mouth & put it back in!!
SLEEPING: Still sleeping pretty much through the night. As of recently, only waking up 2 times. Also Matt & I have changed OUR shifts to every other wake up rather than he take all before midnight & I take the remainder of the night. J’s naps have gotten way more predictable during the day, still with his longest one in the middle.
TEETH: I think we’re starting to teeth & I’m TERRIFIED. He’s been extra fussy, not taking to the boob or bottle immediately, chewing furiously on his hands & drool is practically always pouring out of his mouth.
SICKNESS: Nothing that makes us think it’s more than pollen in the air.
FAVORITE TOY: I recently got him this crinkle Hungry Caterpillar book so that’s our go-to. Still loving his Modern Burlap swaddle blanket & my elephant pants.
LOOKING FORWARD TO: Nicer weather so we can get out the house even more!
I think we’re venturing into teething & I’m honestly terrified. Not only for myself & my nipples, but also for Jackson. He’s always been such a chill dude so once he started crying for no reason, we knew it had to be something different. Thank God for Tylenol & patience!! Matt’s parents visit & meet him for the first time next month! Woooo!
