What happens when Travis is in charge of Charlie…

I know it’s been a long time since I actually posted anything, but we just get so busy. I’ll try to do better. Charlie is doing pretty well. He’s teething (Travis and I both think we can actually feel it starting to come up – but maybe that is wishful thinking on our part), which means lots of drool and a sometimes cranky baby. He’s beginning to really master the rolling over. He was able to do it twice last night in 10 minutes for Travis and I. He really would rather be walking or crawling, though. During that tummy time in his room last night, he managed to scoot himself in a complete 360 degree circle. It made him so mad that all of his “swimming” (can’t get that belly off the ground) just resulted in a circle and not actually getting to me and the toy I was taunting him with. Since he also loves to stand so much, we put up the little doorway jumper last night. We had tried it a few weeks ago, but his head was a little wobbly then so we had put it back away. Well, he was ready for it last night…and he had a blast spinning himself around, jumping from one foot to the other, making faces at us, and of course chewing on the thing as well.

Let It Snow…

I don’t really think any words are needed…but lots of pictures will suffice.

Long Time No Post

It’s been awhile since I posted because we have been having some sleep issues lately, which result in two tired parents. Travis and I have been alternating nights getting up with Charlie at around 3:45 or 4:00 AM. He was also getting up at around 12:30 or 1:00 as well….and we were exhausted. Last night (my night to get up with him), for some reason he miraculously slept from 8:30 until 3:00 AM. I was so excited to get that much sleep in an extended stretch that I joyfully got up to feed him at 3:00. He was able to go back to sleep again until about 6:00. I am praying that this will happen again and was not just a fluke!!!

Charlie is happy no matter what happens at night – if he sleeps, if he gets us up a couple times – doesn’t matter, because this is what he always looks like at 6 in the morning when he helps me get ready for work.

Four Months Old

I will write a post this weekend on what Charlie likes to do now that he is 4 months old, but for now I will leave you with a picture taken on our birthday walk around the neighborhood Monday – he chatted us up the whole time. It was also the first time we tried out our fabulous BOB stroller. At the doctor’s office, Charlie weighed 16 lbs. 7.5 oz (90th percentile), he was 26 inches long (90th percentile) and his head circumference was still in the 75th percentile.
