Hey all! I've been having just a rotten day. Finally got the boys to bed and Dan is off to dry the laundry at the laundromat so I'm having some quiet time at last
Kieran is also getting serious seperation anxiety; whenever I have to run into the next room for something, he's heading my way, gets about halfway there before I come back in and he turns back around, and he sometimes does it several times. He's way advanced mobility-wise, which I kind of expected as Ben was also, but he's just moving far too early. He's been crawling since around Thanksgiving, started pulling up to stand and cruise just after Thanksgiving and I swear he'll be walking on his own in a minute. He's really agile, too, can crawl right to the edge of the bed and turn around to sit without even teetering. He's fallen over a lot in the past 2 months, but it's happening less and less as his balance is getting so much better.
Still no teeth and barely any hair, and what little he has is so light you can barely see it. He laughs so much and babbles almost constantly; "ba ba ba ba ba ba and ma ma ma ma ma ma (each syllable said very distinctly, with lips smacking, it's almost funnier to watch than to hear!), keekeekeekeekee (which seems to be directed at the cats, like he's trying to say kitty??) raspberries and assorted other interesting sounds. He's had some solids, just stuff that we're eating, but he had a really, um, solid poo yesterday so I might back off a bit to let his system get used to it all more slowly. I'm doing that gall bladder cleanse this week so I'm eating a lot of apples (the pectin is supposed to help soften the gallstones) and he's been wanting to share but I think they're binding him up too much.
hmm, what else?? oh yes, nursing gymnastics
driving. me. insane! He's so freaking distractable he pops on and off 20 times and tries to climb over my shoulder while still holding on to my breast. When I put him to bed, he skooches up and up with his tush in the air trying to keep a latch on the nipple until he's almost above me and can't hold on anymore, so I scoop him up and put him back down, relatch and he does it again. It takes 2 or 3 cycles before he'll settle enough to actually fall asleep. have I mentioned it is driving me insane??
I really hope things settle down soon around here, I don't think I can keep going at this pace without snapping. My dad came and rewired the electric in the garage/studio so I can start working out there when it's not too cold (which it has been). Now we just have ot wait for our tax return to get the plywood to finish the walls of the garage and set up the playroom. I can't wait!!
Geez, this got long. Sorry to write such a me post especially seeing as I post so rarely. I'm reading often and answering y'all in my head, I just never get it typed out
Hope you are all having a good week. May February be a faboo month for us all!!
