Baby G Firsts
Similarly to what I did for baby E, I've decided to track all of baby G's milestones in one place. Not to compare the two, but so that when someone asks me later when they started doing X, I have a chance of remembering. I'll try to update periodically, but I can't promise to remember everything!
First Doctor's Visit: 12/26/2018
First Movie: Vice on 1/14/2019 at 3 weeks old.
First Roll (stomach to back): 5/04/2019 at 4 months old, but still not consistent.
First Roll (back to stomach): Did it 5 times in one day on 5/08/2019 at 4 months old. No more swaddling at night!
First Babysitter: G stayed home with Grandma June 3 - 7 (at 5 months old) since daycare hadn’t started yet, followed quickly by his second babysitter, Aunt Raina two weeks later.
Sitting Up: 6/18/2019 at 6 months old. Went from not knowing how to being a pro in two days time.
First day of school: 7/01/2019 at 6 months old. He went for two and a half days the first week due to the holiday, and then started a full week the following Monday.
First time out of State: 7/27/2019 at 7 months old. From Massachusetts to New Hampshire to Maine for a week’s vacation.
Tom and my favorite TV commercial is the luv’s diaper ad with the first time and second time parents attempting bath time. It’s so us. With E, we were terrified to give him a bath, and made our visitors do it for us. With G, its just part of our day. So his first sponge bath happened on 1/2/2019, and his first real bath was on 1/11/2019, which I did solo when I was home with him and he spit up everywhere. We’ve since even done parallel baths with Tom giving E a bath in the bathtub and me giving G one in his baby tub.
G’s first night sleeping through without waking or eating, was 4/13/2019 at 3 and a half months old. Since then he’s gone back and forth between sleeping through the night and keeping us up all night long. 4/29/2019 was his first night alone in his crib, at 4 months old. Between 4 and 6 months old he would sleep through the night a few times a week, and scream for a few hours a few nights. By 6 months old he’s pretty much sleeping through the night consistently.
We started giving G food around 5 months. He tried purees on 5/18/2019 for the first time, and had a green pepper a few days later. Over the next month we introduced a bunch of new foods, whatever E happened to be eating at the time. One things for sure, G LOVES food.
