One new big thing is his growling! Ha! Two weekends ago I was talking to him like the guy on Star War's - the one that says "Luke I am your Father" or whatever he says and ever since then he has been "growling" at everyone! It's so cute and I can't believe he caught on and it's even more funny b/c he does it on purpose. If he starts out with his normal voice you can see him readjust until it comes out in his growl voice!
We also had our first Parents As Teachers home visit yesterday and I talked with Dacia - that's our Parent Educator - about him not rolling and she said by the SOUND of it he is focusing much more on his vocal skills/development then on his motor skills, which made me feel a little better! I was so proud of him! He did so good while Dacia was at the house he played and talked and talked and talked and flashed smiles constantly! I was worried b/c now that he is going to bed at 7 - anytime after 6 a meltdown can happen, but he did great!
Here is a Quick Milestone Recap for the Month!
Talking non stop!
Actually understand the Jumperoo now and knows how to make it make music and noises - he has tied the bouncing to the music so that when the music stops he knows to bounce!
He is also getting really good at sitting up - this past weekend he has started to do "mini crunchers" trying to sit up whenever he is sitting reclined! It's really funny - he even tries to sit up in his carseat, but when it's buckled he doesn't get too far!
Another big milestone if sucessful is that we are in the process of weaning him off his Nutramigen formula and so far we are at 75% Parents Choice and 25% Nutramigen - he has been handling it well so far, the only thing I notice is that he isn't having as many BM's, but that's to be expected!
Hopefully next month there are more motor milestones to talk about, but vocally and visually Dacia was impressed!
We aren't going to the Dr. until next week b/c I hear the 4 month shots are a bear and we have a busy weekend planned! Ha!
