Man, this kid likes to eat! He is nursing every day in the morning, taking three bottles at the sitter, and then nursing around twice a night. He still wakes up to eat once or twice an evening as well. It's amazing how much faster he is getting at nursing-he used to eat for such a long time and now he is much better at getting his food fast! The medication for his reflux has really helped...he seems very comfortable and hardly ever spits up. I'm excited to start rice cereal in a month!
Well, I wish I could say that we are both sleeping through the night, but we just aren't quite there yet. Most nights Jacob goes to bed around 8:00-8:15. We give him a bath every other night and rock him starting around 7:30. He usually falls asleep nursing, but we have been getting better at putting him to bed while he is awake. We stopped swaddling him a few days ago, and will transition him out of the rock and play while I am on Fall Break next week! He is getting so big! He is always so happy when he wakes up too and will talk and babble until we go in his room. He greets us with the biggest, happiest grin!
Jacob is definitely developing more personality. He is starting to show when he is bored and will fuss when he is tired of doing something. And boy, does he have a temper when he is hungry! Homeboy will actually grunt/yell a ,"Mah!" sound and give me a look that says, "You know what I want, give it up Mom!" :)
We still aren't rolling over all the way just yet, but he rolls to his sides and has discovered his hands! He will open and close them and is now reaching for toys (he even has favorite toys now) and putting them in his mouth! He pushes down when he is standing up and can hold up his head much better. It's amazing how much he has changed in such a short amount of time!
