This past month has been a whirlwind. We closed on our house, started renovations (we had planned to do things more gradually, but Chuck's allergies required us to start sooner), my dad flew out to vist/help (thanks, dad!), Maddie started a new preschool (closer to home), and our little man has been a little trooper through it all (the girls, too).
Alex has been sleeping through the night for a couple weeks now. He's a champion sleeper. I love him! I've been giving him a bottle of formula before bed to really fill him up. Then I swaddle the heck out of him and he conks right out after a little nursing.
He's an incredibly happy baby and will smile at you and he's even starting to giggle. The girls love trying to make in smile.
They also love on him constantly and are eager to help with him. They are always asking to hold him. I'm so glad they love him so much. I fear he's in for loads of dressing up and tea parties.
Alex loves being in his carrier and I'm so glad I bought a new one. It's way more convenient to use the carrier in many places here I've found. Plus he just goes right to sleep.
I'm looking forward to him being a bit more interactive. He's finally starting to enjoy his playmat and likes holding toys (albeit fairly briefly). I also located the bumbo chair and he seems to enjoy the change of scenery from his playmat.
