Weeks 15, 16, & 17

The last few weeks have been pretty good. Here's what's been going on...
  • Sully is getting more and more active - he's rolling and holding his head up so good now.
  • He has started reaching for objects and grabbing onto everything he can. His hand eye coordination is really improving!
  • Teething has begun, so he's been pretty fussy at times. No teeth yet, just lots of drooling and trying to fit his fist (or fists) into his mouth.
  • We had his 4 month check up today and everything went great. He weighs 12 lbs 7 oz and is 25 inches long.
  • We are starting rice cereal today so we'll take pictures and let you know how it goes!
  • We had a good stretch of sleeping through most of the night, but lately its not been so good. We're hoping the rice cereal will help keep him fuller longer and hopefully he'll sleep better.
  • Sully had his first Thanksgiving and got to meet lots of family for the first time!
All in all, things are going pretty good now! Here are pictures from the last few weeks...

Sully's first Thanksgiving!

Weeks 12, 13, & 14

Everything has been going a lot better these past few weeks. Sully really is like a different baby - not that he wasn't great before, he's just much more calm and happy now!
  • He's ok to just hang out when he's awake, which is a huge improvement. He has started playing with a few toys and being very interested in the world around him.
  • He's not nearly as fussy in the evenings (thank goodness!)
  • He's starting to get a lot better at his head control - he is still a bit of a bobble head, but is very close to holding his head up completely on his own.
  • He has started grabbing a things around him and loves to hold on to stuff - our fingers, my shirt, a burp rag, toys - anything he can get his hands on.
  • He loves to stand (of course with our help!). He locks his knees and loves to just stand and look at everything - it's so funny since he doesn't have the best head or body control, he looks like he's dancing most of the time - so funny!
  • His sleeping has been much better - naps during the day are still hit or miss, but the last 3 nights he has slept through the night!!!! We'll see if it continues, but for now it's heaven!
  • He has been talking a ton the past few weeks - hearing his little baby talk is the sweetest sound I've ever heard!
It's been so fun to see his little personality start to develop. He knows who Griffin and I are and will respond to our voices and smile and talk back to us. He is already growing up and changing so much! He's such a sweet little boy and we are both so in love!

We forgot the sign, but this is his 12 week picture.

My smiling boy!

Sully was playing on the floor and just conked out right in the middle of the living room - so cute!

Here are a few halloween pics...
