It’s hard to believe but Jamisen is four months old already. We are experiencing what every other new parents on the planet have experienced: the time space continuum breaking and time speeding way way up.
New things Jamisen is doing that make us giggle: he has found his feet (and boy, are they intriguing!), he has learned how to shriek (and boy, is he loud!), he has started to roll over (and boy, we can’t put him down anywhere!), and he has given his Mama two giggles (and boy, is his Daddy jealous!).
He is still only sleeping 2 to 3 hours per stretch at night and his Dad and I are about at our wits end. I have many sleep books (“Health Sleep Habits, Healthy Child,” “The No Cry Sleep Solution,” and “Solve Your Child’s Sleep Problems”) but we have not yet tried serious cry-it-out sleep training yet. We know that time will come if we continue down this multiple-wakings-per-night path for the next couple of months. But until then, we are just keepin’ on, keepin’ on.
If you have any favorite sleep solutions, books or ideas, bring ’em on. Everyone here was so helpful during the constant crying/spitting up stage that I’m hoping your sleep advice will be just as good. And by the way, he’s still spitting up after most feedings but since he’s gaining weight, we just put up with the 8-12 outfit changes per day and thank goodness for a washing machine!
You can tell I’m always the ones taking photos in our house. But Jamisen really really loves his Daddy and brightens when he comes through the door every day. And Chris can get Jamisen to “talk” more than anyone else can for sure. It’s quite adorable to hear them gooing and oohing at eachother.
I hope that you are all having an amazing weekend (long weekend!) thus far. Jamisen and I walked/ran to the Farmer’s Market this morning, his Grandma and Grandpa Renoud (Chris’s parents) visited this morning and (best best best!), I’m scheduled to go paddleboarding tomorrow. Just a reminder, Bramble Berry is closed Monday but we’ll be open on Tuesday. Enjoy the long weekend!
