Holy cow where have the past four months gone?! I love looking back through my millions of photos of Peter and seeing how much he has grown and changed. Does it ever get easier, moms?
Peter has surprised us by sleeping through the night a couple of times. He still wakes up hungry most nights so he gets a snack before falling back to sleep. He constantly fights his naps during the day.
We started adding rice cereal to his diet. It took him a few days to get the hang of the spoon, but now he shouts if we don’t get the spoon to his mouth fast enough.
We are still working on daytime naps. The goal is for him to nap in his crib 3 times a day, but of course that doesn’t always work out. He’s gone from sleeping only 20 minutes in the crib to about 40 minutes. It’s something!
Bath time is such a joy to experience. He loves when we pour the warm water over him and he’s learned the art of splashing. Everything is new and exciting and fun.
A friend commented to me the other day that he’s grown from an infant/newborn into a baby. It’s so true, especially now that he’s more aware of his surroundings and spends more time awake during the day.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again- I LOVE being his mommy!
