15 Weeks

Arlo is 15 weeks old today, and he's been very smiley and happy this week. When I ran home to visit him at lunch today, he was happy-hollering up a storm. He's been experimenting with consonants lately, and his "ghee" sound he busted out the other day was the cutest thing I've ever heard. His babbles are also becoming increasingly polysyllabic, instead of just "ooh" and "aah."

He's getting better at keeping himself occupied, and he can spend an hour in his bouncy seat now, talking to the hangy toys. It's a lot easier to get simple household chores done now that we're not all tethered to each other all day.

Content in his bouncy seat.

We survived our week without Danny, and it sucked about as much as I was thinking it would—but I was so busy that time flew by. It's a good thing, because thanks to my little non-sleeper, I was running on empty by the end of the week.

A grand reunion!

Speaking of Arlo's sleep habits, we're probably a little late on this one, but Danny and I bought a monitor yesterday and put Arlo in his crib for the first time last night. It was sad, but he did fine. He didn't sleep any better or any worse than when we co-room, which obviously wasn't the result we were hoping for. I can't tell you what we'd do for 4 solid hours of sleep. No, really, I can't tell you because I'M TOO TIRED TO THINK OF ANYTHING.

First night in his crib.

Like we say 10 times a night, at least he's cute.

he won't sleep for 4 hours strait? Oh my god i would die! how are you functioning and working full time? you are superwoman! I have my fingers crossed that he will sleep for longer stretches. we've done the opposite of you guys, we've moved tavi back into our room for some reason the ac just doesn't cool down her room and it's too hot at night.

Em- We usually see every hour on the clock, no joke. I'm so jealous of mamas of sleepers. :P

I feel for you and the lack of sleep. Hayden is 3 and is just now sleeping about 6 house straight. And I have the bags under my eyes to prove it! Hope Arlo lets you get some sleep soon :-)
