My little minion is almost 6 months! Half a year! Nearly 183 days considering it is a leap year.
I will never get tired of saying how fast this is going. I will continue to agree with some cliches how time is passing at a rapid pace. How crazy it is I have a child. How much I love him. How much intensity of love and attachment has flourished with my husband. How exciting and scary and wonderful motherhood is. How much my life has changed and how much is hasn't. Ok enough with my dramatic and lively explanation of my life currently.. ( insert silly fave emoji ) ( Because I like emojis and there should be that option in the tab of this blog. )
I have a list on my notes in my phone that is titled Blog. When I get a moment and think of things I'd like to discuss on my blogs in the future, I type it in the Handy Dandy iPhone Notepad. It helps because the forgetfulness mom brain always takes place with my head.
So today and most days Blake fights naps .. Understatement he becomes a warrior and tries to fight his sleep when those yawns and eye rubbing moments happen. I will never understand it. If I could take naps all day and be hand fed and drink off a boob all day I would always be willingly happy and ready to nap. But not Sir Blake he wants to hang out with mom and dad all day and be around every moment possible. So far nap time is quite a challenge for us. He only will fall asleep attached to boob and the moment I get up he is aware because seconds later he is either crying or blabbing baby gibberish. Hand over face... When will I be able to update this thing or do my sewing crafts. It has become a tad more difficult as he is getting older. So no naps today. So that means bath time comes early. We have introduced solids in his routine so Dinner time, Then bath and bottle with dad cuddles and hopefully he is out by then. Well not tonight. It took 3 rounds of nursing and rocking to get this baby to sleep. Last try I just gave up had him on the bobby in my lap and played sleepy music and worked on my new site. He fell asleep.. I currently miss him.. #momproblems
I had to step away as I was writing this last night. Decided to develop some film with Zach which was a success!
Blake slept his first full night in his crib last night! 9 pm to 6 am!!! Of course I woke up several times to check on him and stare at the baby monitor.
Well we currently have 2 teeth! First one came in February 14th. Yes I wrote it in the baby book. And the second one decided to poke through just days later. Talk about a grumpy baby! No more gummy smiles. And yes poor nipples... I am considering pumping only in the future.. It is bitter sweet. I say it because those tiny teeth are like razors rubbing on me. But at the same time Ive grown to love breast feeding. Providing everything for my tiny human. It's amazing.
We started solid foods to give more of a break so that is helping some what. Experimenting with different foods. I bought some organic baby food to have Blake try before I start making large batches at home. It has been a success! He opens his mouth for the spoon and everything! It is amazing and entertaining at the same time to experience all these firsts.
6 month check up is in a couple weeks. I always dread the vaccines. My poor chunky..
