4 months old!

Where has time gone?  Henry is 4 months old today!  In the grand scheme of life, 4 months is a short period but it seems like he's been with us forever.  He celebrated the milestone by breaking free from his swaddle blanket rolling from his back to his front twice in the middle of the night and crying for someone to help him.  Stats are unknown as his next appt. to see CNP Allyson is next week.  I'm looking forward to hearing about his progress-I've got a work meeting I can't miss so C is taking the afternoon off to go to the appointment.  

Other developments include "talking".  H likes to carry on full conversations with us, especially while being rocked and at the end of nursing sessions.  

Henry is eating every 3 hours during the day abs every 2 hours in the evening in an attempt to "stock up" for nighttime.  He still gets up between 2-5 times a night-sometimes to eat and sometimes we just comfort him.  Clearly, he isn't self-soothing yet :)  We start bedtime between 6:30 and 7:30, with a goal of 7pm pjs, story, rocking and last feeding...sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  

We love our little guy and can't wait to see how he continues to develop!
