What we have learned…he has a “pristine” spine according to the neurologist! So so thankful for a good result from the MRI. Though, we did learn that getting an IV when you’re 4 months and haven’t been able to eat is not a pleasant experience. He’s still all about grabbing blankets and even rolled over from front to back.
What we are enjoying…lots of smiles, being held facing out, whenever he gets attention, and grabbing toys on the kick n play.
What are struggles…when he doesn’t quite want to relax to go back to sleep and when we are slow to get to him.
Most exciting milestones…rolling front to back and enjoying sitting in our lap with lots of support. He’s also rotating when he’s laying on the kick n play.
What Canon seems to like…playing on the kick n play, watching Asher and Melea, music, the carrier, grabbing blankets, being held so he can see out, and being with us.
Dislikes seem to be…when we can’t get to him right away, when his hand gets stuck in a toy, when he’s tired, and when he gets stuck trying to turn around on the kick n play.
What sleep looks like…feels like he gives us a longer chunk at the beginning of the night and then is back to more of the every 2-3 hours. Goes to sleep around 8-9 and then is up again around 1-2 and again 4-5 and usually up for the day around 8 still.
He’s eating…milk! Not much has changed here. Still doing great at nursing and is pretty efficient. Probably eats in about 10 min and still roughly every 3 hours.
Who we have seen…we saw the Charucs! And the Paradees! And everyone over Christmas. Jack and Emily came but Tom, Laura, and Ezra didn’t.
At the last doctors appointment…he weighed 14 pounds something…he has his next appointment next week. He is officially in 6 month clothes and still in size 2 diapers.
