This kid. I swear that every week he starts to do something new. It's crazy how fast he's developing. This week he really has discovered his tongue, is starting to roll on his side more, and has been sleeping through the night(!!!). He has been sticking his tongue out like crazy all week. It's pretty cute! He also has started being able to push the pacifier back into his mouth if it's possible to do so, and he likes to grab onto it now. Of course, sometimes that means that he pops it out with his hands, but he'll figure that out soon.
Also this week, when we put him down on the floor or his activity mat, he will roll onto his side and stay there. I think he wants to roll all the way over but isn't really sure how to do that. I'm not really looking forward to when he does that because he'll get stuck and start crying for us to roll him onto his back. I hear it's never ending. But it's pretty cute for him to be on his side for now.
Starting on Saturday night, he has slept through the night every night. It's been pretty amazing. Especially because from Tuesday night on, he's been at daycare and napping and then still sleeping through the night. That's a first. So here's hoping we get many more of those nights. Although, when he wakes up once to eat, it's usually not too bad because he'll only eat for about 20 minutes and then go back to sleep. But I'll certainly take sleeping through the night over waking up!
Hahaha. I believe in the book as I saw Hunter get tired and yawn every 90 minutes. However, regardless of what I tried, I could not get him to actually fall asleep on his own. He took two naps. One was for 45 minutes while I was wearing him, and the other was for 15 minutes on the boppy after I nursed him. I felt absolutely horrible on Monday, and all I wanted was for him to take a nap somewhere other than on me so that I could lay down, too. I think he smelled my sickness like he was a lion and I was a wounded antelope. There was absolutely no napping where I could do the same. By the time Shamus got home from work, we were both pretty cranky.
I thought I'd add this real life picture. I'm still bruised after not doing the shots for 19 weeks. I'm not sure the bruises will ever go away. And I definitely still have a pooch, but I'm just not willing to restrict my diet further with not being able to eat dairy when I want. So my plan is that once Hunter's reflux is better and I can eat dairy every day or I'm done breastfeeding, then I will do an Advocare 24 day challenge. It totally works, and I know that it will slim me down. For now, though, this is my stomach, and it's totally worth it.
