Wyatt's 4 months old!

Wyatt's sleeping through the night now. Overall he is just such a happy, carefree baby. We are so blessed. Every day I just feel so happy to have such a great life. I am truly lucky to have such a wonderful husband and son.

Update on sleeping habits

Ok, the night before last Wyatt actually slept for a whole 8 hours! I was shocked! I woke up at about 2:45am and heard him making a little noise, so I was about to get up. I thought "this is pretty good, he did sleep from about 9:30pm". But, before I even got out of bed, he fell back asleep, so I followed suit. No complaining from me!
When I woke up at 5:30am I thought for sure my clock had to be wrong! Nope, he had actually slept all night. Could he do this every night? Or was this a fluke?
Only time will tell, but last night he didn't do so good. Still better than it has been, but not all night. He woke up a couple times around 4am, which still is better than every 3 hours. So we will just have to wait and see how he does. I am really going to try to get him in a routine of having a full bottle, then goind to bed every night around 9pm. Hopefully that will help him get capable of sleeping all night. I just don't think I am ready to try the "cry it out" method, so I am going to try everything before resorting to that.

First dip in the pool!

I took Wyatt for his first swim last week. It was a lot of fun. He didn't really seem to mind the water, and kind of splashed around a bit. I really hope he comes to like the water as much as I did growing up. Swimming was always one of my favorite activities during the summer. It is also such good excercise, I really hope he will enjoy it.
