Tucker: 4 months

We've got a baby baby now.  No more newborn times as the little chairs and swing have made their way to the basement again.  This kid doesn't want to lie down but would rather try to sit up and see the world from a new view.

He gets lots of love from his brother and is generally pretty happy about it.  He also got some tough love in the past couple weeks as we did some light sleep training.  He wanted to just be held to fall asleep which was meaning hours of me trying to soothe him.  With Benjamin home later and in school a few nights a week I had to take the advice of my doctor and realize he could learn how to self-soothe and get him self to sleep.

As to be expected it was a tough few days but we did it while Benjamin was home so he was able to go in every 5, 10, 15, then 20 minutes.  After 3 days he got the picture and now I can set him down awake but tired and he goes to sleep.  Glorious.

This little man is feeling not so little and growing by the day it seems.  I love to watch him grow and see the world he's exploring.  I'm trying to savor each step as I know he'll be 6 months soon then a year before we know it.  Sigh.
