A weekly post to help us get to know some of our CafeMom cuties ...

Who: Conner Michael, 4 1/2 months old, son of amberwriteslove. He was born a day after his due date. I was scheduled to be induced because my husband was leaving for Fort Benning, Georgia, on October 11. We didn't want him to miss out on our first child being born!

How long does he sleep at night?

He is a great sleeper! At 2 1/2 weeks he started sleeping from about 8:30 p.m., wake up at 3 a.m. to eat, and be down by 4 a.m. Then he'd wake up for the day around 8:30 a.m. and take a few naps here and there throughout the day. Since he was 2 months old, he goes down at 8:30 p.m. and sleeps until 7:30 a.m. straight through. During the day he'll take a half-hour to an hour-long nap around noon.

What makes him smile?

When someone blows kisses at him. He LOVES it. His Daddy came home for Christmas Exodus and he had him smiling CONSTANTLY.

What is his latest milestone?

He will grab hold of your fingers and pull himself up. Tummy time is pretty much non-existent. He only wants to sit straight up.

What is his fussiest time of day?

Right around noon before he goes down for his nap. He tends to be really fussy when he gets sleepy.

What will he do for a future career?

He's going to be a kicker for the Chicago Bears. He's been a true-to-form Robbie Gould since he was in the womb. He's always kicking his legs and he intently watches football.
