Conner still is such a chill and happy baby! Lately he has been such a wiggle worm and loves to roll over, inch worm forwards and backwards and even has started to hold himself up on his hands and knees for very brief periods of time. Conner enjoys the activity center bouncer and sitting up assisted. He still topples over when trying to sit alone but is getting stronger each day.
The spit up situation has been getting better and now burps are only about 50% of the time followed by mass eviction of milk. I’m extremely thankful the spitting up is improving since he now has to actually wear clothes! Some days we even can get away with wearing only one outfit! It’s the small things ;)
Conner’s sleeping habits aren’t bad but they aren’t amazing either - I’d say pretty average baby. He goes to bed in his and Viv’s room around 6:30pm on most nights and then will wake around 11pm or 12am for a feeding. We’ve tried just patting him back to sleep and using a pacifier and sometimes it will work but most times he absolutely demands the boob before he calms back down to sleep. He then wakes around 3am and 6am before wanting to stay up for good and play around 7-7:30am. We try to get him to stay in his crib until the 6am wake up but sometimes during the 3am wake up Conner decides he cannot sleep down in his crib.
Yes, he has us trained but it is so much easier to bring him up to bed at either 3am or 6am (especially 6am) instead of risk waking Vivian up and having both of them up for the day so early.
Conner is still strictly on a breastmilk only diet, despite non-pediatrician suggestions of giving him rice cereal in his milk to help the sleep situation. I’d rather wake up and nurse him than give him filler food - my own opinion. However I am open to the idea of letting him try solid foods as he shows interest. He hasn’t yet but maybe soon!
All in all Conner is a fun little dude to hang around with. His grins, snorts and bubbly giggles crack us up.
