I’ve been blogging in my head recently, which is a good sign that I need to write something. It’s been awhile since I have written though, so to keep myself from writing a novel, I am limiting myself to just one person’s update for each blog post for now. So let’s start with Seth.
Seth is the happiest baby in the world. You may think I am a bit biased, but if you ask anyone who has met Seth, they will agree. Since he learned how to laugh (which was fairly early), I don’t think he has gone one day without laughing. I am not exaggerating either, I really can’t remember one day that he has not laughed. He laughs when he is happy, he laughs when he is tired, and sometimes he will even laugh when he is upset.
Seth is also very vocal. We joke that he may talk before Will because he has a whole vocabulary of sounds that rivals Will’s. When there is a conversation going on a room, Seth will often take advantage of any quiet moments to add his two cents. He loves to listen too though. If someone is anywhere near him and talking, he seems to think that they must be talking to him. This is especially true when Daddy is in the room. Seth will just stare and listen intently. Then, in case you start to feel too important, he’ll just start laughing.
He is sleeping wonderfully at night. Usually he goes to bed at about 8:00 and sleeps until I wake him at 10:30 or 11:00 for the last feeding of the day. If I didn’t wake him I don’t think he would be getting enough to eat, because after that feeding he sleeps until about 7:30 in the morning. Naptimes are not as regular, but they are improving. He will go to sleep for naps without my help most times, which I am so glad I finally took the time to train him to do because it is a great help. Since he is my 4th child, I am not too stressed about irregular naptimes, because I know they will develop naturally if we encourage them.
Well, I guess that about does it for Seth’s update. He has his 4 month well child check next week, so we’ll take a look at his size and all that then. Oh, one other thing, he learned how to roll from his back to his front today. He had rolled the other way twice about two weeks ago and hadn’t done it since. Today he rolled from his back and thought it was so cool, that he has been doing it over and over. Elise found him after he had done it the first time, and came to tell me. “Mom,” she said, “Seth is laughing because he rolled onto his tummy.”
