I try and give my self a dead line to be consistent with my blog the same time every week. But with Blake and chores and my constant procrastinating self, Well it just doesn't happen. 😑 Other excuses include, I hate typing on my phone and we currently only have a desktop and I don't always like sitting in my husbands Man cave to type in my blog...(Love ya babe and your man cave it's nicely decorated) Just in case he reads this..lol
Anyway another week passing me by... Watching Blake grow and learn. So thankful and happy to be able to stay home and be able to witness all the firsts to come. But no crawling yet. He tries and tries and gets frustrated ad gives up .. He is so close though! I'm sure he will have it down before his 8 months day arrives..
Took Blake to his very first Gymboree class this past week. Quite an experience. I was the awkward mother who didn't sing along to the songs, and awkwardly clapped along. I didn't know the lyrics and I don't like gymBo the clown...(I hate clowns) But Blake played in tunnels. Loved the musical instruments and bubble time. But he was the baby that observed more and kept to him self rather than crawl all over the other babies like his classmates that day. I was considering signing him up for the monthly and weekly classes, But because he isn't that mobile yet he's not able to use everything there so I've decided to wait and try it out again in a month or two..
Past few nights have been hell and that's putting it lightly. I'm trying my best to rock Blake back to sleep and put him back in bed when he wakes up in the middle of the night. But at night, I'm a different person. I'm exhausted, lazy and delusional. My past routine when Blake wakes and cries is picking him up putting him on my boob in bed and going back to sleep. But an uncomfortable sleep... So I've tried not picking him up and letting him cry it out a little. Well Blake is a demon y'all .. He will not stop if he does not get picked up. Even if I am laying beside him he will cry scram cry throw him self until I pick him up. Lord am I in for it as he gets older hahah. I mean it's seriously crazy how long he will go. One night he woke maybe two hours after he was put in bed asleep. And didn't go back to sleep till 4 AM. Just crying.. Nothing pleased or soothed him. It was almost like I had a newborn again.. My sweet demon baby.
Over all things are great, Blake is such a happy baby. Dealing with some allergies and tons of boogies at the moment. His poor little nose is red from all the booger wipes. Loves his bath time still ! Hanging out with the dogs a little more, he loves petting them. Or really smacking the hell out of them, but he's learning. Eating a ton now ! Three times a day at this point and breast feeding in between. Eats pretty much anything. Enjoying dads time home very much, Because we never know his work schedule or when he will be on the road again.
For sure update on Monday! Will be celebrating my first Mother's Day not sure what is in store ! So I'll defiantly have something to write about and snapshots to share.
