Okay, this has been my favorite month so far.
This little dude can now roll over from his back to his belly. Although, like Zoolander, he can’t turn left, yet. Jumping is his absolute favorite, and just today we bought this jumperoo which he seems to be enjoying. He loves to grab his feet, along with anything else within reach. I am constantly getting my neck, hair, ears, arms and fingers grabbed and put into his mouth. He loves to chew on things and to drool all over the lucky person holding him.
I am still off dairy and soy. I am not as strict with my diet as I should be, which means that although he isn’t painfully gassy at night, he still gets uncomfortable. He is sleeping in our bed so when we starts to wake up due to discomfort/hunger (usually every 3 hours) I feed him and he goes right back to sleep. We hope to transition him to his crib once he is able to sleep for 4-5 hour stretches. But to be honest, I like the extra snuggle time, especially since I am back to work full time!
He is still exclusively breastfed, and I am pumping about 4 times a day during the week. I feed him at 7 am before I leave for work, he takes 3 – 3.5 bottles during the day (a full bottle is 4 ounces for him right now) and then I feed him at 5:30 pm and then again at 8:30 pm and then bed time for us all. Pumping still kind of sucks, but it is worth it to be able to keep him on breast milk. We started using these Breastflow bottles which he seems to really like. They are made especially for babies who are breastfed and bottle fed.
We just watched The Business of Being Born on Netflix yesterday. If you are pregnant I highly recommend it. Every woman should know her choices when it comes to birth, no matter which kind you eventually choose. I am happy how my birth went, and would be happy birthing at the hospital again next time, but I am thinking that a birth center might be the way to go. I have a few years before making that decision though.
What else… we have his 4 month check up on Friday and I an’t wait to see how much he weighs! He seems like such a chunk to me. I can’t help but to compare him to other babies and he always seems bigger… but he is right on track with his 3-6 clothes. We’ll see.

Pulled out the old Gocco today. I have had a few questions about it in the comments section so I figured I would answer them here! I bought my gocco fore my wedding, so over 2 years ago, at Paper Source. They no longer carry it, I am assuming due to low availability since the product is no longer manufactured. Supplies are hard to come by but I just picked up a few more screens off ebay. These cards will be up in my shop soon enough! I need to go clean the screens so that I can print a few different colors.

One of my very best friends, Natalie, is getting married next month (woohoo!) and she recently had engagement pictures taken. I may be a bit biased, but I think they are gorgeous!
