Baby Update: Baby B is 4 Months Old

It's hard to believe that we're already at the point of Baby B turning 4 months old. Compared to his sister's 4 month update, it seems to have gone by SO much faster this time. But I suppose that's to be expected when you've also got a 2 year old to run around after!

Just like his sister, I'm already thinking about introducing solids because this boy is BIG! He weighed more at his 3 month check up then Baby G did at the 6 month mark. He is one hungry little guy. Still though, I think he needs to be a bit more solid and able to sit up before I start introducing anything other than breast milk.

Highlights over the last month:

  •  We've hired a sleep consultant! (Maybe a mix of a highlight/low point??). You might know that with his sister we had a horrible time with lack of sleep and Baby B is very much on the same path. So I hired a sleep consultant (more on her another day!) and you know what? We've had a few 4 and 5 hour stretches! I'm telling you, I just don't know myself when I've had more than 90 mins sleep. It's brilliant.

  • Trying to roll!! Baby B has been working hard at getting on to his side. His sister had already managed a roll by this stage but in fairness to my little guy, he's got twice the weight to throw around :) I know he's going to do it any day now - I'm already being extra careful with where I leave him down.

  • Christmas! Baby B had his first Christmas and it was so much fun having the two kids this year. 

Lowpoints over the last month:

  • Lack of sleep (see first point above!). I won't dwell on it too much because we're working to fix it, but my god not being able to sleep is just the worst feeling. The exhaustion with two kids under 3 at home AND a lack of sleep is beyond anything I've every felt before.
  • Come to think of it that's really the only low point with Baby B this month. He is such a chilled out, easy going baby most of the time - I really thank my lucky stars! Now if he'd sleep he'd be perfect...

And here's a little photo that's almost a direct comparison to his sister at the same age - I actually forgot all about her one, but love seeing them in the same pose!
