4 months!

Conor is 4 months old today! He had a big month full of lots of changes. He's rolling easily both ways now. He likes to sit up with help and started sitting in his high chair.

After a few weeks of fabulous sleep, he started waking more recently. He usually goes to bed between 7:30 and 8. After that all bets are off. Most nights he sleeps until around 2-3, when he'll nurse then go back to bed fairly easily. Sometimes (rarely) he'll sleep until it's time to get up for the day (7-7:30). More often he's up at least once - sometimes it's just a series of 45 min naps until morning. We can usually get him back to sleep with the paci.

Last week he really got the hang of rolling and I went to get him from his nap to find this:

We stopped swaddling that night because I'm afraid he'll roll in his sleep and get stuck. The first few nights have been okay - pretty much the same not so great sleep as before. Hopefully it will improve.

He had a wonderful visit from Mimi this month. Lots of playing, snuggles and naps. We miss her and can't wait for Christmas!

Fall Walk

Conor went for a walk at Maybury State Park this afternoon. He enjoyed the fall color and daddy's silliness.

That's How He Rolls.

He finally make it over from back to belly!

He started out in the middle of the blanket and scooted around about 90 degrees! Even though he had been rolling to his right side for about 2 weeks, this time he went left and I guess that works for him!
In other news, he's enjoying tummy time again,

and just got a Jumperoo, where he's more interestd in the lights and toys than actually jumping.
