4 Months Old!

Hello world!

I am the proud mother of a child who does not sleep. He naps... occasionally... but sleep... at night?! Ha! My boy likes to be awake or cuddled in momma's arms all night every night. It is both sweet and sad and exhausting all at the same time. As you know, our sweet boy has eczema and in the past weeks it has spread all over his body. He itches and scratches all day and night and we have been snowed out of 2 dermatologist appointments so far. We are finally going to see the doctor Wednesday and hopefully we can get some answers.

In the meantime, we have been keeping busy with lots of shoveling and play dates for the babe. 

Here is Theo's 4 month update:

PS - yes that does say NEW HOUSE.... more on that soon :)


  1. Aww! He's soo cute. I am a sucker for plumpy baby cheeks. I'm sure you have plenty of people giving their opinions and suggestions on how to get your little cutie to sleep. I have a 5 1/2 month old and she used to be an excellent sleeper until around 4 months. Then she was up every 2 hours to eat for 5 minutes. I couldn't handle. No one (including my daughter) was getting enough sleep. The book "The Sleepeasy Solution" was recommended to me, so I tried it. And it worked!! She now sleeps 11 hours straight at night and takes 3 naps a day. It may not be your style, but I just wanted to share what totally helped me.

  2. How is he doing now with his eczema? I have a 4 month old with same problem. Wanted to see if you have any success in keeping it at bay.
