Levi is sleeping through the night! He is my FIRST (of 5) baby to do that before 2 years old!! We are co-sleepers but he had been falling asleep earlier than the rest of us so I started laying him in Lucas' bed (twin mattress on the floor) in his room (because we also have a Lucas bed next to ours in our room). The first night he slept a few hours and the next night another hour later and the next night ALL NIGHT LONG - from 10pm until 5:30am. Sometimes now, he'll even go until 6 or 6:30. I love that I am not waking up with a stiff neck and a tingly arm but there is that part of me that really misses my baby next to me all night long. I'm glad we're getting better sleep though. My milk has had to adjust but all is good. I bring him in with me whenever he wakes up so we do get plenty of co-sleeping time still, and I have a hard time putting him down while he naps.
He's also mostly rolling both ways! He's not consistent, sometimes he gets stuck, but he can do it.
Sitting - almost!! He gets a few seconds to minutes of up time without any assistance. Again, not consistent and definitely not reliable, but he's getting there. He's starting milestones much ealier than my others, except my first. Surprising too, since he was a month early.
Lots of droooooooooling - I think teeth are near, not so near that I can see them, but he has a lot of teething symptoms.
He's so smiley and coos a lot. He loves the excersaucer but has never liked the swing. We recently took the paci away from Lucas (20 months) but in order to keep it away, we had to take it from Levi too. I sneak it to him sometimes when Lucas can't see or isn't around or is sleeping but I've become more of the pacifier for him now. It's been a really hard transition though - for both of them.
Levi is 5 months and last week he weighed in at 15 pounds 12 ounces and was 25.5 inches long!
I sure love this happy guy! And happy is soooo good - considering all the colic we went through early on.
