Length: Not a clue!

Sleeping: This past month poor Judah has been suffering, at first I was quick to think it was the four month sleep regression but now it is plain old teeth. Judah would love to sleep through if he could – he has been doing it since he was 8 weeks old but bless him, on sporadic nights he will just wake up with his fist in his mouth – chomping away because of those pesky teeth! I really am looking forward to them making an appearance soon.

Things Judah likes to do: This last month Judah has taken development to a whole new level! I hope I have remembered everything he has been up to.
I think the best place to start is with his communication, he has ben extremely chatty of late using his grr and duh sounds, along with some fabulous belly laughs. He makes me laugh so much with his giggle, which only encourages him more, so we can have a good five or so minutes laughing to each other which Nate usually joins in on too.
Continuing with hilarious antics, Judah has learnt how to stick out his tongue and I just die every time, for a start it’s pointy and he only sticks it out a little bit, I have tried to catch it on camera but he then becomes obsessed with my phone and stops. Judah’s tongue usually makes an appearance if he is concentrating on something, for instance if a toy on his play mat that is out of reach as well as his arm reaching out to grab it his tongue comes out as well.
I think halfway through the month Judah began work on his abs, he would stick his feet in the air and raise his chin up, crunching on any surface – play mat, bath chair, changing table – you name it he would be ready to work on his muscles in a desperate attempt to sit up – like you do at four and a half months!
This toning must have worked a treat because in true Judah fashion he skipped rolling the traditional way from tummy to back and instead chose the more difficult option from back to his front. I really don’t think he has read the memo about slowing down, and staying little forever because his little legs will kick about and he can unintentionally move himself about a little bit.
Continuing with his great physical strides, after he had gained some enviable head control we popped him in his jumperoo – I can remember Nate’s first attempt being quite emotional but Judah’s first go couldn’t have been more different – he loves it!! I think this is because he generally loves to be upright, seeing everything around him – especially if it has anything to do with Nathanael. Nate is still probably his favourite person around which melts my heart!
