Playing Catch Up

Sooo, we've hit the dreaded four month sleep 'regression' in our house, hence the no posting for a month (yikes). Any semblance of a sleep pattern has gone out the window and poor little king has been a bit of a wreck because of it.
It started about 3 days before daylight savings went back, then of course that happened, which did NOT help. And then a visit to Granny & Grandpa in Adelaide over easter was too much excitement-sleep just got in the way. Of course having no routine for that time meant he got all confused once we got home, and over-tired too. Then teething started, and to top it all off four month immunisations. After charting his sleep on exel, it seems he's trying to go from mostly asleep to mostly awake during the day, and this obviously takes some time developmentally. (yes I am that geeky, but this guy is worse)
But through all this we've had some good things too: he's learned to roll back to front and to stand up from sitting (with a hand held from dad). He's tried pear, and loooved it, drooling, lunging at the spoon with his mouth and grabbing the container to throw pear everywhere. Avocado was a great success too-a green moustache is very sexeh, apparently.
He's nearly discovered his feet-he keeps staring at them, and has grabbed them once, but not really with intent yet. And he's nearly commando crawling, spinning in a circle, and moving about 3 inches forward, but we're still a way off yet.
His eyes are slowly going brown, and he's looking a lot more like his daddy (personally i think it's the monobrow, but don't tell him that!). His hair has yet to fall out and re-grow, but there's a lovely bald patch on the back from rolling around looking at everything-very becoming.
I haven't had much time to make things alas, but I've managed to fix and mend a couple of things that were in desperate need of it (bras nearly falling off, holes in favorite shirts that get worn to work without getting me to fix them. sigh.)
With a little more sleep, I'll be more inspired, I promise!
