Elden hit the 22-mark on Friday/5-month mark on Thursday. Truthfully, week 22 has been a crazy difficult one for us. We're having major nighttime issues and we can't figure out the cause (there seems to be more than just a schedule change/I don't wanna sleep cause). Since he got sick he either seems to have forgotten how to roll over or just no longer cares to. One of his favorite things is to be held, facing out at chest level, and bounced up and down and side to side. Kiddo's gonna LOVE rollercoasters one day! We've decided he isn't ticklish but will oft giggle if you lock eyes with him and give him a huge grin. Even though nights have been tough, he's more pleasant during the day than he used to be, so that helps a little. Hoping that by week 23 we have the sleeping thing figured out...


  1. I don't know if this is helpful, but I remember we went through a brief period of re-swaddling when Leo had learned to roll over. He would roll at night and then get stuck and get mad. So we swaddled him again for a few weeks, until he was more practiced at rolling. It really seemed to help. I think he was 4.5.-5 months, because it was just after Christmas.

  2. I had a cousin that insisted on being held like that, she was about twice his size tho. So, be thankful he's not heavier!
