I usually take notes on my phone throughout the month so that I can refer back to them when I'm writing these posts. Well this month my note just said: "sleep" followed by about 8 thumbs down emojis. So yeah...you're lucky you're so darn cute ;)
I don't know where we went wrong in the sleep department, but now we're seeing your adorable face around 10:30, 1, 3, 5, etc. It's brutal...just brutal. After taking you to the doctor multiple times to have your ears checked, I think I've decided it's developmental--with a possible side of teething. There's a part of me that wants to do anything in my power to fix it, but another part of me that feels like there's nothing we can do other than letting it run it's course. But check back with me at 6 months...I may be ready for some tough love if this goes on another month ;)
My favorite thing this month has been watching your relationship with Arden grow. Seeing the way you admire her and the way she loves to entertain you makes those first couple rough months all worth it. Sometimes when she's loving on you and you're laughing and cooing, I just have to step back and take it all in. I still can't believe you're both mine.
I'm interested to see if you sit up on your own over the next month. You're really trying to, but that big ol' tummy gets in the way and sends you backwards most of the time. So we shall see!
The weather has been so nice lately and we've been taking advantage of it as much as possible. I put you in the Ergo360 whenever we go to the park--and you love it. You've never once fussed in that thing...even when the bucket hat I put on you was covering your eyes for who knows how long! Whoops!
Your thighs get more scrumptious by the day. That's all.
Your dad claims you're going to be a crazy and out of control toddler...but I'm not sure I agree. Even if you turn out to be rough and tumble, I know you're going to have a sweet side too. You can't not be sweet with a smile like yours!
I'm not sure I'd ever heard a baby fart like a grown man...until you. Holy moly, child.
Let's just say I know who you got that gene from--and it wasn't me!!
You started PT this month for a mild case of torticollis. Basically, it just means that because of the way you were curled up in the womb, the muscles on one side of your neck are tighter than the other. I've been pretty stressed about it causing a flat spot on one side of your head...but after 3 appointments and lots of stretching at home, I'm happy to say you're getting all straightened out and your flat spot is pretty much gone :)
You were baptized this month! More to come on that...but it was so very special.
I don't know how soon they'll pop through, but we can definitely see your bottom 2 teeth under the gums. Of course now that I've mentioned it, you'll be toothless at your first birthday. Ha!
Naps are still short. Your sister's started getting longer at 6 months...so if you're the competitive type, you could just start doing it now. Okay?
You've started leaning to me when someone else is holding you. I just love that.
Nash, you are my chubby little sweetheart. And even though you don't sleep...I love you so much I can hardly stand it. I can't wait to see what the next month holds. And if that's lots of restful nights, you won't hear me complaining ;)
