Elliot is 5 weeks today ... and he's getting so big! He's actually wearing one of ds#2's medium Bum-Ware aio's, and it totally fits. I need to call for his 1 month check ... I'm curious how much he weighs, though I know it's almost 13 pounds. We are having major sleep issues here too ... last night was really bad. He'll sleep great from about 8pm until about 1 or 2am, then he's up until about 5 to 7am, when he goes back to sleep again. By up I mean, nursing, dozing, fussing, moving, grunting ... nothing that I can sleep through. I was really really frustrated last night by it (and it's not helping that it's blazing hot here and dh decided to let both older boys sleep in our bed with us ... ), and upset because I knew I wouldn't have it in me to go roller skating with the older ones today ... it's such a vicious cycle right now. I know this too shall pass, but I keep thinking ... what is it that is making him so uncomfortable ... am I eating something that disagrees with him ... is it still the thrush we are fighting ... But he's so darn cute and when he's not fussing, flashes the best smiles!
We also go through a similar thing during the days ... once he does wake in the morning, he doesn't want to be put down, doesn't want to be in the sling, just wants me to carry him across my arm, with his head in my elbow and the heel of my palm in his tummy. So, we sit a lot with him sprawled across my lap, patting his back (he loves his back patted).
He did get to go on vacation with dh and I ... dh surprised me with a trip to San Diego (La Jolla) for our anniversary and Elliot got to go too. Fortunately he did great in the car (he hates the car), and sleep fairly well (up every 2 hours) when we were there.
Right now he's on my lap, spitting up on me and smiling about it!
I'm hoping to get a shower at some point in time here ... he might go in with me.
Oh, and yea, baby acne here too ... it looks worse when he gets really hot or really mad ... otherwise it's not too bad.
