So with Aidan, I started off with weekly baby updates while on maternity leave, then went to monthly updates when I returned to work. With Owen, I haven't managed more than two monthly updates and now I hope to have two delayed updates forthcoming. Having two kids leads to less free time, plus there has been a lot of time spent unpacking and organizing.
So Month Three:
Owen spent the first two weeks being cared for by the grandparents before he started day care. Not long after starting day care, Owen came down with a cold, but avoided the RSV that was going around. He seemed to be doing quite well, especially compared to our experience with Aidan. I'm sure Aidan helped Owen's immunity.
I expected Owen to be more awake during the third month, but I believe we have a kid who loves his sleep. He is constantly napping, and it seems like he slept more than Aidan did as an infant.Some days, Owen slept so late, I didn't see him before work, which surprised me that he would go so long without eating. However, he did make up for the loss of food during the day.
your lap, he is no longer content looking at you and playing with toys. Nope, he wants you to help him jump or stand up. He'll jump until your arms are tired, which doesn't take long since he's still a chunker, gaining at a quicker rate than Aidan.
During month four, we moved into the new house. Owen didn't seem to mind or notice. :)
At his four month appointment, which technically occurred after four months, he was 3 ounces shy of 18 lbs and 26.75" long! Big boy. He also was diagnosed with his first ear infection, which was accompanied by a runny nose or sickness. So I'm thinking he's going to need tubes eventually.
