Jamesy boo is 5 months!

James,


This month you discovered your thumb! You've sorta just sucked on your thumb randomly, but I'm sure soon you'll use it to lull yourself to sleep.


You slept through the night for me. One. Time. Mommy is hoping this happens more! But you are doing way better than you were at the start of the month when you experience four month sleep regression. (Yawn.) 


Speaking of sleep, you dropped the fourth nap this month and sometimes during rest time decide to stay up with me instead. And lately you've decided you would rather nap in your crib than momma's closet. It's a good thing you're cute and give me the biggest smile ever when I look at you! 


We had your tongue and lip ties revised this month. You had to have your tongue manually redone also, which was awful. It was a rough couple of weeks, but you hung in there like the trooper you are! And praise the Lord, the revision is healing correctly now!


You are a super happy baby. And it doesn't go unnoticed. I love your chatter and your smiles. Your giggles are just the best!


And let's not forget. You got two teeth in this month! At 4 1/2 months! Two teeth!


You are still growing like a champ. Size 3 diapers. Size 9 month clothing.


That's all for now, Little Mister. I love you to the moon and back!


Xoxo

Mama

First tooth

This guy slept through dinner out last night and then cut his first tooth! Hooray! Here's to hoping more sleep is coming our way!

Four months Mister James!

James is four months! I would've posted sooner, but as soon as we got back from Houston, he got a cold, hit four month sleep regression, and started cutting his first tooth. Whew it's been fun times! Thankfully though he really is such a good baby. His fussy is nothing compared to some others. Plus he's just a third born. Poor kid. He's going to be so well-adjusted.

James at four months -- 
  • Drooling like crazy, with hands all up in his mouth. I can feel the sharp edge of a tooth just below his gum. The bottom gums are super swollen.
  • On the mouth front, he's having his tongue tie lasered next week. Pray for us!
  • Scoots around on his back. If I set him on the play mat, he moves all around and off the mat. 
  • Loves to chat and coo.
  • Loves to face out. Momma got the ergo360 to accommodate. (Thanks China and eBay for also accommodating my budget!)
  • 6-9 months clothes
  • Size 2 diapers but not for much longer. I'm trying to finish them up. We have size 3 waiting.
  • Still takes a bottle like a champ. Even from mom. Hallelujah! (By the way, now that I know so much about tongue ties, I do wonder if Lilleigh's bottle issue was related to that... classic sign. #whoknew #notme )
  • I *think* he's dropping his fourth nap. Hard to say.
  • Still wakes up a lot. If I'm lucky, it's just once per night.
  • Sits up assisted, in high chair, with mom, in seat... he's becoming more steady!

Mwah! Love you little buddy!
