Time is just flying by!

So Harrison is now 4 months and a week old! He's so much fun! He's cooing, laughing, and rolling around. Everything is going in his mouth these days; his hands, toys, Mommy's hair, and even his feet! Those are the cutest!
We've survived the first 6 weeks of me back at work and him at the sitter's. I miss him so much during the day but I know he is in good hands. Our sitter is wonderful! She's like a second mom to him. We really lucked out. When I was pregnant, everyone warned us about going through several sitters before finding one we really liked and we haven't had to switch at all! She really is wonderful!
These days are getting easier since Harrison is on a pretty predictable schedule now. He wakes around 7-8, plays for 45 minutes, takes an hour nap, eats, plays for another hour, takes an hour nap, plays for an hour and 1/2, takes a nap, eats, plays, blah, blah, blah. Bedtime is at 6 or 6:30 then he wakes around 2 to eat again, wakes to eat at 5ish, and that continues everyday!
He is still waking up several times throughout the night to nurse, which is fine with me. Since I'm gone all day I really like having him with me in the middle of the night. Adam changes him around 2 and sticks him in bed with us where he sleeps and nurses. I love having him all cuddled up next to me!
We tried cereal last week for the first time. Harrison seemed to enjoy it and slept for 12 hours straight that night! But ever since then, he seems to hate the cereal and we've given up on in. I might try it again in a few days.
