Aiden is sleeping through the night!

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!

  1. I'm biased because I grew up as one of three, but I feel it's the perfect number. A lot of the time one of us was left out and it always changed who was ganging up on the odd one out. This taught me a lot about life and friendships and I think put me ahead in forming relationships. It also really helps eliminate a 'favorite' I think, or the illusion of having one. Each kid has strengths and weaknesses, some overlapping, so things feel less competitive.

  2. We have 4: boy, girl, boy, girl! Frankly, with 3, there was a lot of the boys ganging up on the one girl, I think when the baby is older, things will be more even;-)

  3. lol, I'm only 18 and kidless, but I want 4. My boyfriend of 2.5 years grew up in a family of 3 boys, and thinks you should have an 'even' number because 3 always leaves one out – However, I think this is because theres 3 boys, but when my bf (the baby) was born the older boys were 7 and 9. So i think THATS why he was left out much more so than there being three. but i plan to use this to encourage him to be okay with 4. he thinks i'm a little nuts right now though. We'll see 🙂


  4. I am jealous that your 4 month old sleeps through the night. My 2 year old doesn't even do that (though usually she just wants a diaper). Maybe when the baby hits 4 months we will be closer to all night sleep.
