Sweet Baby Sleep!!
Chris asked to help with one of Nate's baths this week... and Momma let HIM!!! He was very gentle and it was the first bath that Nate didn't fuss during! I know Chris enjoyed helping to care for Nate!
Nate is a solid sleeper;) He is still sleeping a good bit during the day but has been GREAT at night. He's giving a couple of nights with 4-5 hours between feedings!!! And even when he wakes, he feeds and is back to sleep:)
And yes, he is sleeping with us. With nursing it gives Momma more sleep! We started co-sleeping with our little babies to survive those first few months when we had Chris!! We'll see how long Nate stays with us... they usually stay until they sleep through the night without Momma!
Momma Has Helpers
Oh, and check out Nate's belly button... the core stump is gone;) Then Momma let the girls dress Nate! Anna worked on the clothes and Lydia kept Nate entertained:)
This week Nate's hands and feet started peeling? His hands finished already, but his feet still have a bit of dry skin on them:) Anna would want to point out Nate's little "piano toes".
Nate loves his hands! We've actually already seen him touch his own hands together! And he has batted at hanging toys on his swing as well as touching our faces and pulling hair;) It seems like he is a little more coordinated than we thought:) Smart little guy!
While Nate does sleep a good part of the day... he is having more "awake" time. Like today he was zonked at our Awana picnic but stayed awake for 4+ hours through church, choir practice and a feed or two;)
And he has become quite the sharp shooter!! LOL!!! This little boy has great aim during diaper changes. We have had a running joke that Daddy is a "soft target" since Nate has gotten him soo many times! But just this weekend Nate got Mommy more!!
