Felix is 4 months old today! He’s still a big fan of baths. He loves being walked around outside and looking at the trees around dusk. He feels most comfortable being held by daddy, or in the wrap with mommy. He’s still breastfeeding with formula supplements, but shows a strong preference for the breast now. Also, he shares a bed with us most of the time still, but we’re slowly transitioning him to his basinet, at least for part of the night.
He doesn’t smile much and doesn’t have too much interest in toys yet. We were a bit concerned about his motor and social development, and meeting milestones, but his doctor said he wasn’t concerned just yet. Babies all develop and do things on their own time, not by dates on a calendar.
He’s still dealing with a little colic, but I think it’s mostly because he doesn’t nap much during the day. Only 15-20 minute naps rather than 60-90 minute naps. By the evening he’s way too overtired and can’t settle in, so he cries. It’s not every night anymore, but probly about 1/2 the time. He’s also had 3 colds now, with awful congestion. So all the colic, gas and congestion for most of his life could be contributing to him not being a super smiley baby.
Life has to get better from here, right?
