5 months old!
Here is an update of what is going on during Preston's fifth month:
(Almost) sleeping through the night-We put Preston down for bed between 7-8pm and he is now able to go without a feeding until the next morning. He still wakes up 1 or 2 times per night, and we have to go into his room and rub his back until he falls asleep, but we do not pick him up and he is able to get himself back to sleep with our help.
Sitting up on his own- Auntie Lesley discovered he could do this while we were all eating dinner together the day after Christmas. She sat him on the table and then took her hands away and voila- we had a baby who was able to hold himself up on his own!
Eating solid food- Preston has really taken to trying out solid foods and is being a good sport about eating most of what we have been giving to him. For now, that has only been rice cereal, pureed peas and pureed prunes (that one was for "medicinal" purposes).
Next challenge... working on getting this child to take a nap for longer than 30 minutes! Stay tuned...
