Leon's 4 Months!

Leon is 4-months-old and one great baby.  He is always so smily just looking at him brightens my mood.  It is really hard not to be happy when he is smiling at you with the biggest toothless smile you have ever seen.  And if you tickle him he laughs the cutest baby laughs.
Leon actually went from sleeping through the night consistently to waking up at 2:30 every night.  So last month he didn't sleep quite as well.  But I think this month we will get back on track.
Some people want me to cut his hair.  But I just thought I would tell everyone that it isn't going to happen.  At least not for now.  I love his 3" (yes, I just measured) long sideburns.

Leon has also been rolling over like crazy.  He can go both directions but mostly goes from back to stomach.  So when we put him down for bed all wrapped up tight with his arms stuck at his sides he takes about 5 seconds and flips himself over.  Then he pops his head up and looks around like "what happened?"  It is funny, but worrisome because I know he is supposed to sleep on his back but he just wont anymore.  I think we might stop wrapping him so he can at least have the use of his arms when he is on his stomach.

Leon has been loving his hands.  I always catch him clasping his hands together and just staring at them.  It is like he just discovered they existed.  So cute.

Leon is just a doll! My baby is 2 months and almost always sleeps on his belly. It makes me so nervous but he is more comfortable that way and will sleep for hours on end versus cat napping all night long.

Doranda - Leon is sooo cute! I wouldn't worry about him sleeping on his tummy. All of my kids (and probably you and your siblings) slept on their stomachs and everyone is still alive. "Back to Sleep" didn't come about until the '90's I think. Besides, what else are you going to do? I vote for "however the baby sleeps best" is the best for everyone. :-}

He's so cute! I just love that he's so smiley. :) Hannah's been doing the same thing sleeping wise - hopefully it'll get back to normal soon! It's funny because she's slept the best she ever has at your parents house! And his hair is so fun. People keep telling me to cut Jacob's hair, but I really don't want to. So I'm not going to! :)
