Better Late than Never!

August's tummy problems have almost completely abated! He hasn't been on meds now for over a month. Whohooo! He spits up far less & is in less pain, but he still does spit up (especially this past weekend. Wow). He's eating lots of solids these days - his favorites are anything orange - squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, but he also enjoys applesauce, green beans, pears & bananas. He doesn't like peas too much. He likes prunes okay which is good because the little guy is often constipated. I'm not sure the prunes are helping too much.

He is so strong! He can stand (if we hold his hands), he is almost getting into crawling position. He rolls & scoots & slides everywhere! He is going to be very mobile, very soon. Time to really start babyproofing. Something that will be tough with a 3-year-old in the house who likes to leave little toys everywhere. Ay yi yi.

He has been sleeping a lot better. In his own crib! He has taken several multiple hour naps & slept for good chunks at night. The other day he SLEPT ALL NIGHT. From about 11pm to 5am. I heard him fussing & was going to go in there, but he quieted himself down til 7am! It was the most awesome thing ever! Last night he slept for a chunk of 6 hours, & I still think that is pretty awesome. Just last week he was still sleeping in one-hour chunks.

His smile is infectious; his laugh is so joyful. He is interested in everything & becoming so fun to play with. His little personality is developing right before our eyes. It's amazing.

His favorite thing is still the ceiling fan. I wish we could have one in every room!

That post sounds like it was written by a mom who is finally getting some much needed sleep! Hooray!

I showed this post and the last one to my mom and dad who were here today. They smiled and cooed and said, "Dahlia looks just like Carrie! And look at August's big eyes!" So there. Your kids are pretty awesome.
