Tanner James: 5 months

What's been happening this month:

  • He found his toes.  I don't know why but it's just the cutest thing ever when they start grabbing their feet.
  • We are using the Zipadee Zip now instead of the swaddle.
  • He's such a happy baby.  He loves to smile and be smiled at.
  • He's weighing in at 16 pounds.
  • Still spitting up. Ugh
  • We got out the Baby Einstein Bouncer.  He loves it.  That is the best baby product.
  • Rolling over a lot and starting to roll from back to tummy.
  • Gnawing on anything he can get into his mouth.  He especially likes our fingers and his own toes.
  • He had a really bad drool rash.  Or so I thought...  More on that in month 6.

Tanner James: 4 months

What's been happening this month:
  • Scooting around all over. He tries to scoot on his booty out of the bouncy chair and swing.  He has to be buckled at all times now. He can also turn himself completely around when laying on his back.
  • Still swaddled but gets his arms out a lot.
  • Still in bassinet and sleeping with us.
  • He is waking up more at night since I have gone back to work.  I don't really mind it since I get extra cuddles at night.
  • I'm back to pumping, so that's annoying.
  • I've had a lot more trouble losing weight this time around so Kyle got me a Fit Bit for my birthday.  It's helping a lot.
  • He still spitting up a ton.  It's frustrating for all of us.  We all need an extra change of clothes at all times.
  • He is super snuggly and loves to be held, worn in a sling, and cuddled.
  • Rolling over from tummy to back.
  • He doesn't mind his tummy time and will hang out there for a while.
  • He has set a predictable schedule with a long afternoon nap but is pretty flexible too.
