Seriously though. I legit blink and another month has passed.
I’m sitting in a dim room, sound machine soothing our ears, and gently rocking back and forth on a cozy recliner.
I’ve tried transferring you to your crib a few times- but low and behold you protest. Napping is not your strength. Nor has it been your brothers strengths either. So, clearly I could have benefit from reading a parenting sleep book pre-kids. Oh well. I don’t mind staring at your perfectly puffy lips and sleepy eyes. The good Lord knows what your bigger bro’s are doing and dare I peak cause I might cry at the disaster zones in our living rooms.
Anyway, just so you know, you’re pretty amazing. I often wonder what you’re gonna be like. I find myself thinking often how much you are like Crosby…. then you go and do something just like Kobe would. It’s funny. And fascinating! I can’t wait to watch you grow up and see who you are! So far I, I like you. A lot.
Cameron’s Likes: homeboy loves a lot of things. He is still head over heels for his brothers. He loves to snuggle, play, roll, and make a lot of funny noises!
Cameron’s Dislikes: little buddy suddenly hates being undressed. Maybe it’s because my hands have been cold a lot… or he’s just over it. But he’s been needing frequent changes due to drool and blow outs. Perhaps it’s time for the next size up in Diaps. He also isn’t a fan of being set down for naps lately. But we’re working on that. Thankfully the car is now enjoyable- big bro’s are making him laugh a lot in the car- super helpful! And true child-style, he’s not the biggest fan of waiting. For anything.
Nicknames: Cam, Cammy, Homeboy, Bubba/Bubs, Cam Bam.
Weight: somewhere around 18-19lbs and 29ish inches long. Wearing 6-9 & 9 month clothing.
Milestones: Cameron has been in PT since he was 8wks old. He had a pretty good case of Torticollis. And he still suffers from some tightness on his right side. He is currently everything lefty-dominant. So, because of the PT I think he is excelling in a lot activities due to the nature of constantly working with him, stretching, adjustments, and goals. I write this, one, so that I remember these things someday, but also to remind myself that he is probably doing things above his age because of the PT.
- Rolling both ways and also back to front/front to back.
- Sitting slightly assisted and sometimes unassisted for short periods of time.
- Babbles non-stop.
- Scooting around from point a to point b on the floor on his belly very easily.
- Enjoying pulling things over his face then pulling them down. (Kinda like peek-a-boo)
- Grabs things easily, pulls them to his face and plays with them.
- Excellent at mimicking sounds from his brothers and making them laugh hysterically!
- Responding to his name.
- Trying to get himself in a position to crawl.
- Overly observant of activities and loud sounds.
We ditched solids as it made him fussy and of all things, bananas, gave him a rash. And contrary to popular opinions given to me, it did not help him sleep better! Haha
He also is still not an amazing sleeper but it’s getting better than it was allll of month 4. Yeeesh. that was a doozy.
