Bobby Updates

Here's what's happening with Bobby these days:

- Bobby stayed in the nursery at the gym for the first time yesterday! As a matter of fact, it was my first time leaving him with strangers. He did great. The sitters said he was an angel, and played the whole time. I can't believe it took me this long to feel comfortable doing so!

- Bobby is in the process of cutting his first two teeth. One has broken through the gum, and the other is just behind. The teething process is not nearly as bad as I imagined. He's had a few moments of crankiness, but overall, he's still the same happy kid. I went with a few recommendations from friends, and bought him some Hyland's Teething Tablets. They are all-natural, and work great! He was getting up, on average, twice a night. I have been giving him the tablets before bed, and since then, he is back to sleeping through the night.

- Speaking of sleeping, Bobby is on average getting 12 hours of sleep. He has been waking up pretty consistently at 7am, which is nice. He slept in until 7:30am on Sunday. His naps are great too!

- Bobby has tried to pull himself up a few times. He is also scooting around quite a bit, mostly backwards. He is still trying to figure out how to crawl, but it seems pretty imminent.

- Bobby says "Ma Ma" a lot, and he's also said "Da Da" a few times. He is so talkative!

Overall, he has just been a dream (as my friend, Jamie would say). He rocked my world as a newborn. He cried a lot, and needed to be stimulated constantly. When holding him, we could not sit still with him. However, now, as an infant, he's amazing! His disposition is perfect, and sweet. He is easily entertained, and rarely is fussy anymore. Things have gotten much easier. I'm not so terrified anymore of having another baby! Ha!
