Max turned 4 months on Saturday May 17th. Max is just filled with adorableness these days. It's hard to believe that I ever wanted to skip the baby phase and just have a 5 year old. It's also hard to believe that I have already packed up so many clothes that don't fit him anymore. We also returned Tiff's beloved Rock N Play last week because Max is too big for it, and she needs it back for her baby boy who will be born in a few weeks!
So, what can Max do these days?
He can look cute!
Ha ha. He is also "talking" a lot more. Think: goo, goo, ga, ga. We say he is telling us stories about his day. Occasionally he sounds a little angry during these stories, but mostly just happy. I guess sometimes people do things that really piss him off… probably his mean mummy :)
Max and I have been practicing taking photos of ourselves. It's pretty hilarious.
Luckily, we have Caroline to take actual photos of us.
He also has a little bit of troublemaker in him (not surprising). We found out the other day that he has been rolling over for my parents since May 8th and refused to show this new skill to Eric or I until yesterday! Stinker.
In general he is just interacting with us a lot more. He gives a lot of smiles, talking and just looking at everyone and everything. He is taking it all in.
Likes: sticking out his tongue, laughing at others sticking out their tongues, babbling, doing back bends, grabbing hair, putting everything in his mouth, car rides, music, kicking things
Dislikes: napping in his crib, napping in general, being tired due to refusing to nap
Feeding: Max's feeding has pretty much remained the same since 2-3 weeks old. He eats every 3 hours basically during the day. It still takes him a lifetime to eat, but now that I'm back at work I don't mind this because it gives me a great excuse to hang out on the couch for the vast majority of the night. I guess the only change is that he is getting more distracted while eating, particularly if something interesting is happening around him.
Sleeping: I can't complain at all about Max and sleep. He regularly sleeps through the night from about 9:30pm to 7am. In the last few weeks, he has had a handful of nights with early wake ups between 4-5am but those are still not the norm, fortunately. He still refuses all naps in the crib during the day and basically all naps at our house. He will nap in the car and out in public, so that's useful as long as you aren't trying to get anything at all accomplished at home.
My goal is to write posts 2x per month, since I'm recording all this info only here but I only did one the last month (see lack of nap time) so we shall see what happens. I hope everyone has a great long weekend!
