5 months

Today is Malcolm's 5 month birthday. He has grown so much. I look back at pictures of when he was first born and boy was he tiny.

This weekend we took him on his first camping night out at Mulhurst. He did very well and so did mom and dad. And oh, by the way, the whole suckie fiasco is gone. No sooner did I mention it on Facebook and on my blog that now he has not woke up once in the middle of the night for it. 9 to 9 my little man...what an awesome sleeper.

Now if only my sister will get married soon and start popping out a few for him to play with.

Suckie Be Gone

I never should have introduced the suckie. Malcolm is almost 5 months old now and my wonderful 7 and 8 hr sleeps has now dwindled. I wake up 3, 4, 5 times a night to find a suckie that has been noticed is missing. Poor little guy. I can't wait until he can put it in his own mouth. Do I continue to get up night after night and wait patiently for his independence? When will that be?

Gosh, I love you so much Munchkin...let mommy sleep please. haha.

At least Malcolm is not a screamer..he's very quiet actually but still, I awake and off I go to the room.

My baby, growing so fast and now...no sleep for me.

Okay, tonight I am letting him fuss it out. It's good for him and it will work. I know it will...I just need to be patient.

It's been a while

I haven't written on my blog for sometime now. I have discovered Facebook, although years later than everyone else it seems, and now that has taken over my time.

Let's see, what can I say, my Malcolm is 41/2 months old now and has lost most of his hair. Oh my sweet baby who had so much at birth, now it's gone. But man does he look older. Our days are getting better, if that's even possible. He still sleeps through the night and slowly I am managing to only have to get up once if at all to help him back to sleep in the middle of it. I think I am the one who needs the suckie for him to go to bed...not him.

Malcolm laughs alot and plays alot, and he's finally rolled from Back to Front, last night, when I wasn't home of course. But he did it and now I can capture that one in his baby book to remember always.

I still have plenty of Leslie time and it coincides nicely with Mommy time. This is the best ride I've been on in my entire life.
