Nate's 4 Months Old!

Time has passed so quickly. Our little guy is already four months old some how.

He's been rolling both ways for a week or so now, but in the past couple of days he's turned it into a sport. Gone are the days of leaving him on a blanket and having him be there when I get back. He has found he doesn't like walls or chairs--they get in his way. As for books, he'll just roll right on over those!

He still loves "Old McDonald" and pulling my hair as much as ever. He's also found that he likes to play 'Trot a Little Horsey' and 'Peek-a-Boo.'

He'd been getting up four times a night. I just couldn't keep up, so I started mild sleep training--I won't feed him until it's been 3-4 hours since his last feeding. Now he's being fed twice at night and generally gets up one time between those, requiring me to get up and soothe him until he goes back to sleep. I don't think I've ever been so tired for this long in my entire life. Mama wants a nap. He's luck he's so cute!

I weighed him on the bathroom scale and got that he weighs 16 lbs. this morning. And 24" with my yard stick--highly precise instruments, they are not, but a good guess-timate, since he's not scheduled to see the doctor until the end of March for his official stats.
