We have really started pushing napping in the crib and he is doing well. I have also started trying to just lay him in his crib cold turkey...he fusses a little, but usually falls asleep. He is not big on napping so I think he is fighting sleep more than anything. Feeding has finally gotten better and he is back taking a full bottle after a few weeks of not eating well. The Bethanachol must be helping (it's a motility med that helps move food from his stomach to his intestines). I get so much joy seeing my baby eating! :)

Here is a special photo that I woke up to on Facebook! Grandma posted this picture of Jason when he was 4 months old:) So sweet!! I love my boys!

Hope everyone has a great week!
Love,
J, E, & H
