Therefore, this whole "let them cry it out through the night and they'll be sleeping like angels in no time" experiment is on hold. Until further notice. P.S.: No one dares tell you how incredibly grumpy the children are the next day and the next and the next.....they have conveniently left that part out!
That being said, the Birdman is doing fantastic! He is darling, and fun. Rolling to and fro. Playing like crazy. I will do a Five and Six Month update this weekend. It will be full of rolling, food, words, walking, reading....I bet you can't wait!!

I have re-written this letter a few times, trying to decide what exactly I want these to be. At first I thought: oh! I will update everyone on everything that is going on in the last month. But it gets harder and harder as you get older and learn and grow more. And then I can't decide what to leave out, and what to put in a regular post versus just write my love and dad's love for you....so basically I will just lay out what is in my heart, what my joys and hopes are for you and thoughts I have as you grow.....so basically, they will be pretty cheesy....Hold on to your hats, people.
Daddy spends Mondays with you, and although you gave him a run for his money that first Monday, you guys are the best pals now. Daddy spent two whole weeks with you around Christmas and had a blast reading books, playing with blocks and Dad even taught you your first trick: Grabbing Things! He called me and said "Birdman has a new trick!" and I was so excited all day to see what it was! And then you were Grabbing Things. I was so proud of you!! I will probably pee my pants when you start walking...
You have started to grab things on purpose, suck on your fingers/fist/anything within range, you do really well with tummy time and you started to LAUGH!!! Your laugh is THE BEST baby laugh in all the land. A good game of Peek A Boo will really get you going and it warms my heart when you smile when I come home from work!
Sometimes I wonder how my heart can fit so much love into it. I look at you, your little baby mullet, or wide bright eyes, your smile, I listen to your laugh, and pinch your chubby little thighs and think about how much I love you. And how much I love your Dad, and how much I love our little family, which you made complete, and how much I love listening to you sleep, and how much I love hugging you and holding you and watching you learn, and I think: Can my heart take much more? My life and heart are full.

She was VERY impressed with JBM. She turned him on his tummy and he promptly rolled over! He laughed and smiled and grabbed things. And she said "oh, he is doing 6 month things!!". Of course we were so very proud.
He also had his weigh in!
Weight: 17 pounds, 12 ounces (95%)
Height: 25 inches (55%)
Head: 44 cm (95%)
He is more Round than Long, but hey, what's a kid to do that just sits around and eats, and rolls over every now and then?
