Love hearing the updates so far! They are all beautiful babies with little personalities already emerging! I'll tell you a little about Leo and our nearly 5 months together!
Well I'm still madly in love and devoted to this little fuzz head. He totally stole my heart and I still feel some guilt when I realize how sad I was at the gender unltrasound. He reminds me more of my 9 year old than my 4 year old but looks A LOT like my 4 year old. Beautiful blue eyes, always curious.. turning his head around like an owl at all times.. his doctor says everytime she see's him that he's so alert and interested in watching everything.. she also says he's affectionate and it's so true! This kid is a lover.. wants to be held ALL the time or at least be talked to and played with. He sleeps with me from about 2 or 3am till the morning.. I can't help it, I'm dead tired. Call me lazy but that alarm clock comes early and I need all the sleep I can get! So from 3 on he nurses at least once.. maybe I'm just a pacifier.
So yes, I'm spoiling him.. I'd only admit it to ya'll.. but I didn't want him to cry anything out when he was younger and he's been sicky for about a month.. nose stuffy mostly.. some coughing. We've all been battling colds but when he starts to cry it gets worse and I can't stand it! Have to indulge him.. well, he's a baby, what can I say? He also could be my last so I'm loving this baby stage as mucha s possible! He likes to make noise, sing and coo and sometimes gets loud but he's much quieter than my middle exhuberant child. He seems like more of a listner. I hope it stays that way! He's eating 2 meals a day and I pump when at work so he gets mostly breastmilk.. I don't hydrate enough so sometimes I can't pump enough for him and my mother supplements with formula. I do a veggie around lunch and then cereal with a little fruit at night. He LOVES to eat and has that mouth open like a baby bird as soon as the spoon comes within view! Still a big baby, 90th percentile so I don't feel bad that I introduced food to him at 4 months.. he needed it! Like most of your babies he's turning over from tummy to back but not much the other way.. he can turn to his side if he's motivated from his tummy but I've only seen him do that twice. I'm getting a kick out of how he's turning into a little octopus.. not easy to eat with him in my lap anymore!
Wow.. showing off and talking about my baby felt great! I try not to talk about him at work much because I don't want to be one of those people and family is tired of hearing about him so this was better than I thought! HA HA. Thanks for listening. I do wish he would sleep better but it's improving.. however, he started biting me today.. luckily there are NO teeth and no signs of any (besides drooling).. still, it HURTS! I'm going to have to break him of that.. he gets the death grip on my nipple and he finds it very amusing. Naughty! Any tips would be great!
