Chase Rolls Over

Zach's out of town for business this week so it's single mommy and her 2 kids this week all alone. Day 1 Emma dropped her Magnadoodle on Chase's eye and boy was he not happy about that! Day 2 Emma and Collin were dancing to some music and Emma (as graceful as she is) fell into the coffee table with her cheeck and boy is it black and blue. So we're on Day 3 - my luck I'll fall down the stairs and break my leg or something. Boy - it's a rough house these days! Zach comes home late Thursday night and we can't wait to see him.

Chase finally slept through the night for the 1st time 2 nights ago. But last night it was back to our usual - up every 4 hours. I can't complain though because he does go right back to bed.

Last weekend Zach and I got away from the kids on Saturday night and went to Glenn and Kelly's wedding in Ohio. We had a great time and the wedding was beautiful. Grandma Barb spent the night with the kids at our house. They had a great time playing and I'm sure enjoyed mom not being here! Thanks again Grandma Barb!

He's been doing this for a while now and trying to do it for almost 2 months now - but here you go!

Chase 4 Months Old




Okay - so behind as usual - but here's a 4 month picture of Chase! He's getting so big. He's 13.8 lbs and 24 3/4 inches long. We are still not sleeping well - but getting better each night. We started 4 months off by sleeping only 2-3 hours at a time at night. But with an 11 day trip home and odd sleeping arrangements - I think he got a little spoiled! So now we're working our way up to sleeping more hours at a time with a little crying at night. Right now at 4 1/2 months he's sleeping from 9 pm or so until about 3:30 am. And then we eat and sleep again until usually 6 am and then it just depends on whether he'll go back to sleep or not without eating. Definately better than the 2-3 hours at a time - but at this point Emma had beem sleeping through the night for almost 2 months!

Chase also started eating cereal and veggies this month. He loves sweet potatoes! And the biggest news of all - we're rolling over!!! I'll post a video later, but he finally got it and rolls both ways now. He had been rolling to his side and almost over for more than a month now and the other day he just figured it out! He still gets made that he can't get to his toys once he gets rolled over, but that's okay because I'm not ready for a crawler yet!
Other than that we're just getting back to normal here. Emma's back in Mother's Day Out 1 day a week, Zach's busier than ever at work considering it's his off season and I'm still home with the kiddos and looking for my next new career!
