Halloween! One of my favorite holidays. I'm usually the one who holds a party at my house filled with costumes, candy, and cupcakes, but I decided against it this year. Isaac is just getting used to going to bed at the same time every night, and I don't feel like throwing a wrench into his already fragile sleep schedule. I'm even going to keep the porch light off so we don't get a bunch of trick or treaters ringing the doorbell all night. I must say that I will miss the festivities. It'll be better next year, when Isaac is walking and (hopefully) sleeping better. To all those going to parties or trick or treating, have a fun night!
The last time I posted I was working on a "no cry" sleep solution with Isaac. That proved to be unsuccessful. In fact, it made him sleep less. That said, I think it was helpful for me in a lot of ways. It taught me a lot about how a baby sleeps, and also some new methods for soothing. I also started keeping track of when Isaac sleeps, and that has been helpful. We've been trying some other things that seem to be working, one of which is letting him cry a little. A few times he has slept for 4 hours straight, which is a huge improvement. The last couple nights have been rough for him, but I think that's because he had his second round of vaccinations on Friday.
At his 4 month check up his stats were : weight13 lbs 14 oz, height 25 3/4 inches, head circumference 16 inches.
I love autumn. It's my favorite season. I love seeing pumpkins everywhere. I love the way the sun glistens through the trees that God has painted all different colors. I love wearing sweaters, vests, jackets. I love winter too, so I'm excited for that to get here soon! I heard a rumor that we're going to have more snow this year than we did last year, so that's exciting.
Here's a few recent pictures of my little buddy.
