-Rolls 3/4 of the way over
-First overnight trip
I can't believe our little guy is four months already...time is seriously flying by! Our chunker is 15 lb 2 oz and 25.5" long. He's already in 6-12 clothes too and he still has my huge cheeks. :)
We went on our first overnight trip as a family to Tahoe on a whim. There was a ton of snow but the weather was beautiful and sunny and we had a great time.
Benjamin seems to be teething now and has random screaming episodes where all he wants to do is chew his hands or his burp cloth. It comes and goes though and otherwise he is still a happy baby. He isn't quite rolling over yet but he'll actually roll 3/4 of the way over and somehow roll all the way back the way he came! He's still nursing a ton at night and getting up every 2-3 hours, so I'm still a super tired mama. I had mentioned last month how happy I was that he was sleeping a 4-5 hour stretch and that was great for the one week that it lasted! After a week, he reverted back to usual and has been up every few hours since then. People have suggested all kinds of tips but nothing seems to work and no, I'm not letting him 'cry it out'. At least I am finally loving breastfeeding though, so that's a plus.
I start back at work on Monday and I have mixed feelings. I'm either going to love it or hate it! The good news is I'm only working 24 hours a week and I get to work from home, which is great. Benjamin absolutely refuses the bottle right now, so it should be interesting. I guess when he gets hungry enough, he'll eat, but hopefully there won't be too many tears. The hard part will be ignoring his cries while I'm in the office working and he's with the nanny. At least I can go spend lunch time with him and, of course, I can take breaks and pop out whenever I want to see his adorable face. :)
We visited with some friends from out of town and Benjamin went swimming for the first time ever! At first he didn't seem to know what to think, but I do think he liked it.
We celebrated Easter at church and then had an awesome brunch with family and friends. Here's Benjamin looking all cute.
