Many of you know that Aiden has been my fussy boy. While he is still fussy I am very pleased to tell you that he is sleeping in his crib (in his own room) from around 8pm to 5am! I am thrilled with this. He still sometimes wakes up around 3am and will cry himself back to sleep and occasionally he’ll wake up at 4am and not fall back asleep until I nurse him. That’s okay though because I’m pleased to be able to sleep!
I often worry about the cribs safety, but I follow the SIDS guidelines and love that I have a Babysense monitor on his crib which will alarm if he quits breathing. It definitely makes me feel better. Since he is not in my room and so far away I worry about him (as any mother does) I love that I have the Babysense and now I also have a Summer Infant video baby monitor which I LOVE. I absolutely love that I can peak in on my kids without the risk of disturbing them and waking them up.
Aiden turned 4 months old a few days ago so I tried giving him some rice cereal. The first time I gave it to him he loved it! The next few times he wasn’t a fan. We’re still experimenting with it to see if he is ready for it yet. I can’t believe my little baby boy is growing up so fast!!!
Aiden growing up leaves my husband and I talking about the “perfect” number of children to have. I’d like 4 kids and he’d be happy with 2. He is perfectly excited to have one more though. He debates #4 🙂 We’ll see what I think after number 3. So what do you think. What is the perfect number for you? I love that I already have a boy and a girl so there is no hoping for a specific gender that we don’t have yet. I always wanted a girl and I really wanted my husband to have a little boy to teach all of the boy things too. I love my family and I’m so thankful for this crazy place we are at in life! It may be busy but it is full of love and so many memories!
