Four Months

Both Boys have started sleeping through the night. One night I woke up at 6 am freaking out because I thought I slept through their midnight feeding, but lo and behold they both started deciding they didn't need that feeding anymore. Their bedtime routine is eat, take a bath and read stories with dad, they go to bed at 8 :15, dream-feed at 10:30 ( for those of you that don't know what that is, A "dreamfeed" is referred to as the "late evening feeding" in On Becoming Babywise. This is the last feeding of the day before you go to bed) This is my favorite feeding, they honestly know when its coming. I go in their room they prop their legs up for me automatically so I can pick them up and then start making a sucking sound with out a bottle in their mouth yet, and this is all with their eyes closed and half asleep, It seriously is so cute. Then they sleep till 7 in the morning. They are still on a 3 hour feeding schedule during the day . They love singing and dancing, every morning I put on pandora on my ipad and listen to oldies. Their favorite song for me to sing to them is "walk like a man". They have started grabbing things and trying to put it in their mouths. I think they are starting to teeth, but I dont expect any teeth in the near future. They also notice each other so much more now, they just grab at each other constantly and suck on each others hands. Tate loves talking to Porter and Porter just cracks up at any noise Tate makes.


Porter: 14 lbs 11 oz and 25 inches long. Rolling over, always wakes up 45 min in to his naps whines for about a minute then goes back to sleep, is really good at independent play. He can play on the activity mat all day if I let him. He likes to play instead of eat, which makes feeding really hard when holding him. He will just look at me and smile and let the milk drip all over his face. He is a daddies boy. He will smile at Chase all day long. Loves to be sang too while changing his diaper. Loves to suck on his hands, right now anytime you look at Porter I swear he has a fist in his mouth.

Tate: 14 lbs 15 oz and 24 3/4 inches long. Has started to roll over, loves bath time, he is going to be our little swimmer he just kicks and kicks in the tub. He loves his sleep and hates getting woken up from a nap. Is a little harder to see his dimples, I think its because his cheeks are so big, but when he smiles super big you can see them. Does not like to be in one spot for to long, I have to move him around about every 5 min to a different activity. Loves his mamma. I am in charge of Tate at church and Dad is in charge of Porter. He is out little droller and spitter upper. Chase should know better by now never to lift him over his head after feeding, lol but Chase gets to excited to play with him and always ends up with spit up its kind of funny.







I just love these boys to death!

They are so dang cute. I'm dreaming of sleeping at your house this week! Charles has been a really excellent sleeper and then he got sick about a week ago and is up almost hourly with a cough. You are a pro, I wish I had your mad skills at making things go so smoothly!
