Eating: He didn't earn the nickname "Big Buddy" for his small stature or birdlike appetite. Wyatt loves to eat. He nurses 8-10 times a day for an average of 13 minutes each.
Sleeping: Confession: Wyatt sleeps in his swing. I know, I know. I'm setting myself up for a difficult transition but we were in survival mode over here. When Collins was a baby I would have NEVER let her sleep in a swing because I read the websites and knew how to transition her to her crib easily and have her sleep through the night (ha!). While Collins did transition to her crib easily, she didn't sleep through the night until 19 months. What's the lesson here? Every baby is different and you do what you gotta do to make it through. Wyatt only wakes up once per night if at all while in his swing. He sleeps, I sleep, we all sleep. Win.
Collins' dairy intolerance showed up at the same age so I'm not at all surprised by this.
Dislikes: Riding in the car, bottles
Nicknames: WyWy, Buddy, Big Buddy, Super Wy, Wy Wy Boogey, Peanut
I am: MIA. I haven't blogged since Wyatt's last monthly update because keeping two humans alive and happy takes up every minute and once of energy I have. Wyatt is normally awake when Collins naps and if they're both asleep, I spend time with DLW.
DLW is: settling into a new routine at work. So far we have been very fortunate with his schedule and he has gotten to spend a lot of time with Collins when he gets home. He is incredibly helpful and uses his lunch hour to run errands, get to the DMV, and pick up anything we need.
Collins enjoys decorating her brother with stickers but he doesn't seem to mind.
Despite a household cold and one long road trip, we have had another happy month. Now that we have figured out the dairy issue, Wyatt is really the best baby. Collins is adjusting well and really cares about her brother. Happy three months, Wy!
