The description of what to expect this week is right on for William. He’s always been a baby who likes to grab out at and hold things, and he’s especially been holding his bottle when given the chance lately.
As time goes on William amazes use every week with how big he’s getting and how very animated as well. This week’s description definitely sounds like him especially in temperament.
As of today William is fourteen weeks or three and a half months old. It’s amazing how time has flown. It makes me grateful that I have had a blog to record things to go back and reflect on later. As the tips below say, he definitely is smiling more now at real live things including seeing Matt and myself.
It’s been definitely obvious that William has been exploring and learning about his world with his hands. This week’s preview reminds me to make sure he gets to use his tactile senses with skin to skin contact and a wide variety of synthetic fabrics as well.
Today William is twelve weeks or three months old. We’ve tried to read to him before this milestone and now and as the app suggests, he doesn’t always pay attention. Last week I tried to read him two books in a row, one of which I’ll be reviewing tomorrow He didn’t seem interested, in either book though as I had tried in part to give him an activity in case he was crying out of boredom. The app suggested that I should take cues from him when it’s time to read or not, and this is great advice I will follow.
It’s hard to believe for us that William is already eleven weeks old. We do see some of the more coordination in his movements. When turning towards something, such as a toy, or away from it, such as a hand trying to do an outfit change, it’s clear his movements are increasingly deliberate a good deal of the time more often.
As new parents, one of our focuses is on sleep. Does he sleep enough – according to many reports he should sleep a lot more than he does, though he is finally starting to sleep a bit more through the night. I wonder if that will change now that I’m will be at work for many hours a day as he’d prefer to get in as much breastfeeding time as he can.
