Milestones: Hayes is really starting to move this month. On April 1st he started consistently rolling from his back to his stomach. Which makes for a fun diaper change. Hayes is much better at intentionally grabbing things. He is really trying to be on the move, if you stand him up, he starts taking steps. When he is on his stomach, he gets up on his toes and pushes. He can also hold himself up on his hands with straight arms, as soon as he puts the 2 together, he will be moving.
Feeding: Hayes is still eating about six ounces every 3-4 hours. We got the go ahead to start solids from the doctor (which we have now, pics to come).
Behavior: Hayes is still happy 95% of the time. He is still really only crabby if he is hungry, tired or sometimes bored. We have had some nice days, and he LOVES! being outside. I have a feeling he is going to be daddy's little helper as soon as he is walking. Chris was home last weekend and he kept saying wow, I can't believe we have such a happy boy! All you have to do is make eye contact with Hayes and he just lights up! I hope he is always this happy!
Sleep: Still no real improvement on the sleep front. He seems to be doing better with naps, usually taking 2 two hour naps and then a short one in the late afternoon. Nighttime he is still waking up once or twice to eat. He is still good at going right back to sleep though. His doctor recommended some gentle sleep training, so I need to get to the library and get the book she recommended.
Clothes: Hayes is still in the same size clothes as he was last month for the most part. There are a couple of sleepers he is too long for now. He is generally still wearing 6-12 month clothes. He was wearing a 18 month onsie the other day, and it fit great I just had to roll up the sleeves once, maybe he has a long torso. Hayes is still wearing size 3 diapers from Target.
Chris was home this past weekend, and I just realized, I didn't get a single picture :( Grr that makes me so mad. Oh well hopefully he will be back sooner than 6 weeks, like last time.
