Four Months Old!

Colby is four months old! How did that happen?

 Most of the time Colby is a happy and giggly baby. He likes to listen to people talk and loves it when people talk to him. Emily and daddy can both easily get good giggles from Colby without much work.

Colby can roll from his belly to his back, even though he won't show anyone besides mommy and daddy. From his back, he can roll up on his side, but hasn't made it all the way over yet. Get also goes a good job of squirming and scooting when laying on his back.

Colby has started to play with his toys more. He grabs at toys and tries to put them in his mouth.

Colby has been doing well eating still (except for this past weekend for whatever reason). He normally eats every three to four hours during the day.

Colby typically goes to bed at night around 9pm (in his own bed) and wakes up for the day around 7am. (He was sleeping all the way through until his swaddle went away.) He normally takes a short morning nap and a short late afternoon nap, and then a long nap in the middle of the day.

Because of Colby's starting to roll, we have been trying to ween him of his swaddle. He was doing really well with just one arm out and not having issues going to sleep or staying a sleep. He did okay for a day or two with both arms, but I noticed his naps started to get a little bit shorter and he stopped sleeping through the night. He's been waking up once or twice most nights since we took away the swaddle completely. Tonight we are going to go back to being swaddle with one arm out and see if we can make it through the night again.

Colby is wearing mostly three month clothes, but some 0-3 still fit him and he does have some 3-6 that fit him as well.

Colby LOVES to blow raspberries! And he tends to blow them at the right time during conversations :)
