Well, Noah is losing his hair in the same "old man receding hair line" patttern that Ethan did ... it gave them both such a "little old man" look. He's also come down with a funky case of baby acne ... poor kid
At least he couldn't care less about it *lol*. And whomever mentioned the green flecks ... we have that here too. I don't think it's anything to be concerned about. Noah's umbilical cord stump is still attached ... I'm ready for that durn thing to fall off. It doesn't seem to be irritated or anything though, so I guess I'll be patient. Ped. said if it's still there when we see him back at 4 weeks he'll want to cauterize it ... that doesn't sound fun ... so hoping it drops off in the next week!
Meli, I'm so glad you managed to get some sleep. Hope this is the bend in the road for you and things are less difficult from here on out!
FutureMama ... I really admire your perseverance. Yay for you and your babe
Oy, I was up from 12:30 to 3ish last night with a baby that was slightly fussy, and determined to be awake. Needless to say I was dragging this morning, and I had my first serious emotional meltdown. I was trying to get breakfast for Ethan, and had put N. down on the boppy, which he'll usually tolorate for a few minutes while I try to quickly do something ... Ethan started whining about the (in his opinion) poor selection of cereal, and Noah started crying loudly (who knows why!) ... and I totally snapped at Ethan. He looked up at me and his eyes filled with tears and he said, "Why are you talking to me like that, Mama?". So I proceeded to feel horrible and cry, and we sat down on the couch and cried together for a few moments, and I apologized and eventually we both recovered. Whew. I felt so horrible. My poor, sweet, big boy ... he kept saying "It's ok Mama, please don't be sad". *sniff* I'm waiting for N. to settle down for his long afternoon nap, and hopefully I'll get to nap too, since E. & DH are outside raking leaves.
