We're all hanging in here..... I"m not blogging or on the computer as much... there is just soo much to do. And when it's quiet, sleep is required!!!
Nate seems to have changed this week.
He's developed some baby acne :( all those hormones from Momma has caused him to really break out.
He still naps often!! And when we're out of the house or in the early evening... he is zonked!! He likes sleeping on his belly (so we let him do it when we're close by!).
At night, Nate has been waking more often! Like last night he was up wanting to eat every 2 hours!!! So I'm thinking he is either going through a growth spurt or building up my milk supply.
It seems though that he's been awake a lot more. After eating and getting bubbles out, we get to enjoy such sweet moments! He definitely is spoiled and loves to be held! But he's also pretty content in the bouncy seat... especially after Brian put in batteries;) He also loves to be worn... he's done well in all the different carriers/gear I've worn him in... we'll have to do pics soon:)
He's also reaching out more. He touches our faces. Grabs ahold of my necklaces. And pulls the girls' hair... they are so cute saying,"that's what babies do".
But he seems to also have something bothering his stomach :( So we've had plenty of screaming sessions.
We call this the "raisin face"! He scrunches his little face soo tight! Can't you HEAR the scream in this pic??
With the other kids I kept a journal of what I ate so I could figure out their food allergies. But with Nate I've elminated the "allergy" foods and so I haven't been keeping track. If the screaming sessions continue... I'll have to start!! Poor little boy!!
While we're talking about eating. Nate is still nursing well! He's making me melt... LOL... really though, between the dietary changes (due to the food allergy concerns) and nursing, all the pregnancy weight has melted away. Too bad, I'm still healing and am not 100% just yet!
