Markus at 4 Months

Week 17

Today Markus is 4 months old. He is discovering his hands, sucks his fingers and fists constantly. He sleeps 9 to 10 hours a night, but naps only intermittently during the day. He recognises us and follows our voices and movements, cries at night to get company and to be picked up and cuddled. Is very vocal, making lots of gurgles and noises.

Big milestones for me have been leaving him overnight and going away by myself for 2 days. I have written up our birth story and have sorted out all the photos I have taken. I had been wondering how I spent my time, but looking at all the photos reminded me how many guests we have had, and how much I have taken Markus out and about!

We also have a nursery place organised for him from mid February at Kids and Co in Hohlstrasse. Next steps for me are to start exercising more and losing weight before going back to work :-(

But before that we have our first family Christmas to enjoy :-)

My snapshots are up-to-date, and these give a good idea what we have been upto
