Growing so fast

Yay Maximoo is 4 months old!

Let's start with something super important to me...SLEEP! After that one hell-week of sleep training, Max is sleeping happily from 845-9pm to about 7am with no crying in between 99% of the time! YES! I dream feed him around 1am and 5am-ish and he is ready for the day at around 7am (can't win them all). Naps are still at 45 minutes. sadly, he doesnt fall asleep for hours in car seat anymore while strolling...only if it is initiated by a car's!

ive witnessed him multiple times go from back to his side about 50% of the way...enough to kind of worry me about the back to tummy rolling business and how i shouldn't be swaddling anymore when this happens. So today i've started to swaddle with one arm out for naps...but will keep the two arms swaddled for the night. Lets see how this goes.

Max's eyes are showing rings of brown, but still grey/blue in some areas...i think he'll turn out to have those really light brown eyes type or a hazel-ish color. But definitely not blue.

He was weighed at childrens and he's now 15lbs 4oz. His length is at 62cm.

He can roll over from tummy to back...but only when he feels like it. I managed to capture one on video, but have no idea how to upload! he is so strong during tummy time! I remember the times when we were just trying to get him to turn his head to one he just freely does what he wants

Lots of vowel sounds and consonant sounds happening from the little boy...ive heard him say "mum" but i dont think it's the official you-are-my-mom connection. He's doing a lot of lip of those say it don't spray it type of rolling. Love it!

We have giggles over here, but they're random. I can be doing the same thing a few hours later and no giggles to be had.

He's in the 3-9 month clothing now (yes 9 months) and still in #2 swaddlers. though i do have #3 cruisers ready when this box is done

We have a small flat spot and bald spot at the back of his head from all his back-is-best sleeping

We are on the ergo with no infant insert, wow!

4 month vaccinations on tuesday...poor littleguy!


  1. He is just so sweet in that pic. Reminds me of Ben with his round chubby face. Good news on his sleeping. Whatever works for the whole family! Josie is doing the same thing with day times naps. She will sleep the best in the Ergo carrier (2 hours straight) but only does 45 minute stints in other situations. She wakes around 8:30 AM and then wants to nap an hour later. Sometimes she fights it and stays awake, but she used to nod off like clock work for a good hour. I know that at 4 months they do change their sleep patterns. Seriously...always something!!

    1. Just when moms finally think they have it figured out, things change
