The times, they are a changin'

For the past few days, Christie has been struggling to articulate the reason why she feels Bryce is maturing, but she couldn't quite put her finger on it. I was skeptical earlier in the week, but after spending the weekend at home with him, I've started to notice a number of exciting changes as well. First and foremost, he'll finally sleep without being held constantly. During the day, it's usually only an hour or so, but he's been sleeping soundly for 3 or even 4 hour stretches at night. He still dislikes the crib, but his papasan bouncer chair and swing have quickly become new favorites in the Sonnek household.

Mealtime has become a lot less stressful, too. The hour-long, anxiety-ridden feedings of the past have gradually transitioned into twenty-minute affairs in which choking is the exception rather than the rule. He hit 7 lb., 12 oz. (Logan's birth weight!) this morning, and doesn't seem like he's planning to slow down any time soon. Finally, Bryce is more engaged with the world around him. If he's resting on my lap, he definitely prefers sitting upright, so that he can see what's happening around him, to lying flat, and certain toys consistently arouse his interest.

I've included a short video clip of this morning's Tummy Time below. Not too exciting, but he sure does have a lot of energy for a one-month-old!

  1. Bryce,

    You look and sound fantastic!

    I'm glad to hear that feeding time is going better and that Bryce is sleeping better.
