Brayden at 4 1/2 months

My sweet boy

Brayden is 4 1/2 months! Obviously from his picture he is really into drooling! He has also been rolling from his back to his front for almost a month now, and just recently figured out he can roll the other way too. He thinks his sister is the funniest person in the world. When he starts to get fussy I have Brooke go sit with him and sing him a song or talk to him and he will laugh and smile at her! It's so cute! Brayden has always been a really good sleeper, until a few weeks ago. He started sleeping through the night (11pm-6am) consistantly since 7 weeks old! My good sleeper has gone back to his newborn ways...possibly worse than newborn sleep habits, waking up at least 3 times a night! I am not sure how much longer I am going to be able to function...but naptime is definitely coming back into the routine for me! I was hoping it was just a growth spurt, but it's been 3 weeks. I don't know...maybe I'll try giving him some rice cereal. We tried food at 5 months with Brooke, but didn't really start until 6 months. Brayden was 28 inches long (97th%) and weighed 16lbs 2oz (75th%) at his 4 month check up, which is 2 inches and 2 pounds bigger than Brooke at 4 months so maybe he is ready. We'll figure it out sooner or later...hopefully sooner!

Things I never thought I would say (then I had a toddler)

"You can't eat the whole block of cheese"

"Don't touch your poop!"

"You are squishing your brother's head when you sit on him like that."

"You have to wear a shirt when we leave the house."

"Take the magnet out of your mouth."

"Please don't put your hair in your brother's mouth."

"Ok, you can watch Barney"

"You cannot have mac n cheese for breakfast"

"Hand mommy your poop."

"Only mommy and daddy can change your diaper. YOU may not change your own diaper."

"You may not hide in your brother's bed and take your clothes off."

"You cannot eat the butter."

"You only need to wear one pair of pants."

"You cannot eat the pancake mix out of the box."

"Don't put your hand in your diaper, there is poop in there!"

*(notice a theme with the poop...it's been fun)

Love my girl!!
