Man these past few days have been super dreary around here. bleh, butttttt my Birthday is on Friday and it’s supposed to be 83 degrees and sunny 🙂 I can’t wait 🙂 Annyyyway, my little button is 14 weeks old today!
I cannot believe how quickly he is growing up. The past week I feel like he has grown up so much. He is so alert and actively grabbing things and putting them in his mouth. I realize now that I need a few more toys for him. Ones that are easy to hold so he can put them in his mouth and not chew on his hands all the time. So I ordered these keys
and I ordered more of these, since he loves them so much
I am really trying to teach him not to put his thumb in his mouth all the time. And I know soon I will be saying, man I wish he would stop putting everything into his mouth.. but for now chew away buddy.
As I posted about on Tuesday, we are not doing so well in the sleep department. He doesn’t want to take longer than 20-40 minute naps during the day and he will only sleep 3-4 hours at a time at night. I guess he spoiled us with his 5-7 hour nighttime sleeps last month. Today I resorted to letting him cry it out in his crib for 10 minutes before I went back up there to try and nurse him again so he could fall asleep. It worked but it’s hard to hear him cry like that 😦 I don’t know what else to do. If any one has any advice plllllllease help.
He also seems to be hungry allllllllllllllllllll the time. I don’t know if that means that I am not supplying him with enough milk or if he is just going through a huge growth spurt. I really hope it’s the latter.
This weekend will be my very first Mother’s day 🙂 I am so excited to spend it with my family. Being a mother is such a blessing and now I’ve learned that being a stay at home mom is no joke. I am still learning how to balance baby and housework, and of course as soon as I figure it out I will have to go back to work. Figures right?!
