Holden had a slight improvement in this category over last month. A few times we only had one wake up per night but most nights we still get up twice. He still likes to be rocked to sleep at home (yay!) but he doesn't night like it at daycare. Joy (our daycare provider) said that when she tries to rock him, he just arches his back and gets fussy. So, she swaddles him and lays him down in the Rock N Play and he puts himself to sleep. I was worried that he might start pulling this at home too but thankfully he still lets me rock him.
Holden eats 5 ounces every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. We tried to cut back to 4 ounces to see if that would improve his spitting up (which started to get pretty yucky this month) but he wasn't having any of that. So, we stuck with 5 ounces.
Well, I put the 0-3 month clothing away this month and pulled out the 3-6. I think I may have waited a little too long to move up a size as several of the 3-6 month outfits are a little snug. It was a little sad to put all those clothes away! Holden also started wearing size 2 diapers this month.
This may be the last month that this is a category here. Holden pretty much only cries when he's hungry and/or tired.
Well, that cold that we thought he had last month wasn't really a cold. He's been congested ever since. We went to see the doctor on December 12 and he said that sometimes babies are just congested. Since it's not affecting his sleep or weight gain (had gained 2 pounds - 15 lbs 12 oz - since his check-up two weeks prior), he said it's nothing to worry about. Otherwise, he's been healthy (knock on wood).
-Holden likes to lie on the ottoman and push with his feet until his head hangs off the end. He's already becoming a little daredevil.
-He really likes to watch the ceiling fan and looks for it when we are sitting in the rocking chair.
-He like to experiment with his voice and is making louder sounds.
-He doesn't like to smile when the camera is on him. He'd, for the most part, just rather stare at it. He's the same way when he's around more than just a couple people.
-Well the big milestone this month was rolling from his tummy to his back just two days before his 3 month birthday (December 22).
-The big "first" this month was his first time at daycare. He spent two hours at daycare on December 1st, and then spent his first whole day there on December 8th. He has transitioned to daycare very well, which has made it a lot easier on me. Don't get me wrong...walking away from that daycare without him that first day tore my heart out. I asked my co-workers why they didn't tell me that the first days at daycare were harder than labor & delivery. ;o)
-First Thanksgiving was spent at my parent's house
-Holden's first visit with Santa was December 5th.
