4 Month Photo Fun

My little man turned 4 months old today!  We had a fun, but chilly, photoshoot with pumpkins from Hubby's pumpkin patch.  We were thankful that it wasn't raining (or snowing!) today so we were able to take pictures outside.  The forecast calls for snow tonight so we will see if we wake up to white tomorrow!  

With the cool weather we've found that Cameron loves fuzzy jammies.  On Wednesday night we only got up ONCE!  That's amazing.  If we only woke up at 3:00 every morning, I think I would feel like a completely different person.  I thought we had found the magic remedy to sleepless nights.  I was wrong.  We've been getting up so much the last few nights that I haven't even been able to keep track.  Sometimes he is even awake again before the sound machine turns off (I didn't believe the heartbeat sound would be helpful, but it most definitely has been!) and that plays for 45 minutes.  

I try not to think of my baby's age in terms of "When will we get more sleep" but I'm convinced we will sleep longer when we start solids.  So when I realized that we were at the 4 month mark today, the first thing that came to mind was "Two more months until more sleep!"  I know that this isn't always the case, but it's nice to have a goal anyway.  I have a more solid goal of nursing until his first birthday, so I guess that is a bigger priority than sleep!  

Also, if anyone has ideas for what to do with dill besides pickles (our dill grew like crazy, but our cucumbers did NOT) let me know!  


  1. Our little man actually started sleeping worse at 6 mons when we started solids....ugh i feel like we are right back to where we were at the first two months. Somedays i reallllly crave a goodnight sleep. My only advice is to keep a good perspective. Babies go through phases so fast. Just when you think you have them figured out they set a new routine and change....for better or worse. Goodluck. :)

  2. I'm still struggling with sleep at 7 months. Common with breastfeeding as they miss you! He is also not loving solids, so its a bit of a fight at feeding time! Then mix in my potty training 2 year old who wakes to pee and decides he should get to crawl in and cuddle mom and dad...super cute but I want my bed back with uninterrupted sleep would be nice!
    Oh well, they do grow up fast they say! :) Just hope my tired mommy face isn't too scary!
    Love your notes and he's such a little cutie - gorgeous eyes! :)
