Weight: 13 lbs 10 oz.
Clothes: 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.
Health: He’s still taking Prevacid for his reflux, but other than that he’s a super healthy little guy!
He has been drooling a lot, and has developed a rash around his mouth from all the drool. On Saturday he was really fussy and couldn’t really be consoled. All that would help calm him down was chewing on daddy’s finger Even that didn’t work for more than a few minutes at a time. So after doing some investigating, we think he might already be teething. So we gave him a tiny bit of gum numbing gel and he was in a much better mood the rest of the night. Obviously it’s very early to be teething, but not unheard of. We looked in his mouth and I swear you can see a tiny little white spot on his lower gum. I think I can even feel something! He was fine the last couple of days, so we will see how it plays out in the coming weeks.
Sleep: He sleeps from about 8:30-2:30, eats, and then goes back to sleep until about 5:30. Sometimes after I feed him at 5:30, he’ll go back to sleep for another 45 minutes. I wish he would just sleep through to 6:30 and get up for the day.
Crying: Other than Saturday’s afternoon fussiness, he just cries pretty much when he’s hungry or tired.
Social and Activity: We had Sunday dinner at babcia and dziadek’s house again. They had some apple trees planted so Cooper will be able to pick them when he gets older. Cooper supervised the planting to make sure everything went smoothly.
Likes and Dislikes: Provided he’s not hungry, he actually likes getting his diaper changed. He helps us by lifting up his butt and smiles and talks the whole time.
Diet: Still breastfeeding and bottle feeding. He takes 3 bottles a day while I’m at work. He usually only has 1 bottle a day on the weekends.
Baby Gear Love: Jelly Belly jelly beans. He will sit at the table and look at them while we trade-off eating dinner – so we are actually able to sit down and have dinner somewhat together. He even manages to grab them in his hands sometimes! Don’t worry – we are careful that he doesn’t put them in his mouth.
Milestones: We have been doing a lot more “tummy time” with Cooper, and he’s been lifting his head higher and higher. He is so close to rolling over from his back to his stomach. He just needs a little help getting the one shoulder out from under him. The other day we helped him and he ended up on his stomach and he got the biggest smile on his face – you could tell he was proud of himself.
And he can put weight on his legs for a little bit – he just needs some help balancing.
