Hoping sleep regression is over–Nolan has fallen asleep within 30 minutes after his bath for 3 nights straight now. That would have made it a total of 5 weeks. He’s become so advanced so quickly in rolling, crawling, pulling himself up, plopping himself back down and cruising that his brain is finally giving him a much needed break. He tends to wake up crying more when he sleeps in his own crib though. In our bed he sleeps so much better and “snakes” his way to a little nook between mine and Rob’s pillows as if he knows that’s where he belongs. LOVE my little munchkin for being the sweetest thing!! But really hoping he stays used to sleeping in his own crib. We like our own space and don’t want to co-sleep if we don’t have to.
Two more teeth are growing on the bottom so that means lots of drooling and tons of munching on anything and everything (even on our fingers–ouch!). We’re so lucky that it doesn’t make him too fussy and no fever has ever affected him either. Nowadays he smiles as if to show off his pearly whites. He enjoys playing peek-a-boo and chasing mommy around corners. His favorite snack, hands down, are the savory Gerber sticks. No matter what he’s doing, even if he’s “full”, he’ll drop everything midway to munch on one. Looking forward to next week’s 9 month check-up for new official stats to share!
Can you see the two coming up?? The 2nd photo looks as if he’s trying too hard to either smile or show us his teeth.
Noly being his usual giggly self.
Always giving me beautiful smiles in between munches.
This shows how addicted he is to that pacifier with the old switcheroo.
