Charlie has started pinching. I don't like pinching. I thought he might actually pinch my nipple off the other day - he has very good aim! Grabbed the whole thing in his little fist and pinched and twisted it.
And at night, he is doing all the nursing signals.. and not nursing. Repeatedly. I could be sleeping forever, apparently, if only he didn't fool me. We haven't gone shopping yet this month (paid soon, though!) so he's very gassy from end-of-month cooking. We did a nice fart break this morning - the leg press - he liked it.
I'm having an issue with his neck. I think it was the combo of friction from the amber necklace (we took it off at least a week ago now) and the 600 gallons of drool, but his neck got raw. I am now washing it frequently - checking it every diaper change and cleaning anything I see - and greasing it with either coconut oil, a salve I was given and/or breast milk. It's bled three times. Not sure what else to do about it. Yesterday morning I checked it and there was no redness and then that after noon it was bleeding! (not much, it's just a smear through there and pore sized holes).
He's also puking lately. Like what Carrie describes as reflux. At random. He's usually pretty happy about it, oddly. I need to go scrub his carseat.
And! We bought the Super absorbant inserts for his SoftBums and used them last night - SO GOOD! I changed him during our fart break this morning and what is usually a completely soaked diaper... wasn't. It was wet, but the material change made it feel pretty dry. Yay! (And yes, he is still peeing like a horse in the day, so I doubt it was a change in peeing)
He also just sat and happily played by himself for about an hour.
I'm going to make carrot cake today. This one: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/carrot-cake-iii/detail.aspx but with no nuts. Mm! I have beautiful carrots from a farm I know :)
Oh!!! And he rolled over last night! Dusty was playing with him on the bed - rolling him from tummy to back and kissing his belly - and one time he rolled him to his tummy and Charlie just kicked right back over! Couldn't get a repeat, but yay! :D I'm sure we will.
