Rhys is 4 months old!


--> Our sweet boy. He just seems to take the world in stride. I’m so happy to be settling him in to his own room and seeing what the next month holds for him.

Loves: watching his big sister at all times, being swaddled, white noise, standing up on anyone’s lap and being talked to, bath time, holding his feet

Dislikes: Being buckled into his carseat, stopping at stoplights, being off his schedule. When this guy is over-stimulated, he needs his nap time!

Milestones: laughing, rolling over both ways just a few times, moving up to size 2 diapers, discovering hands and feet


Sleeping: This is changing a bit, but he has been taking a short morning nap around 10, a long afternoon nap from 1-4, a little snooze at 6:30, and then bed at 7:30. But he has suddenly been waking up at 6:15 all week! Not a fan of that, and trying to adjust things to get him back to 7:30ish.

Eating: At this point with Larkyn, I was DYING to start feeding her solid foods. That did not go well, and we tried again at 6 months. I think I’m just going to hold off until then with him too. He drinks 5 bottles a day, at about 30 ounces total.He weighs 15.5 pounds.

His ENT visit at Nationwide Childrens for breathing stridor was at the end of June. Thank goodness his doctor and nurses were awesome, because it was such a traumatic experience for both of us. The official diagnosis is reflux and laryngomalacia (a “floppy larynx” that 90% of children outgrow) and the treatment is Zantac and time. I was hoping that by his next visit this month, it would be gone, but it isn’t.

With his new room, we will soon be trying out sleeping in a crib, using the swing, and pulling out the beloved exersaucer. Time is going fast with this little one!
