Oh my goodness my lil baby is 3 weeks already! Why is time going so fast? Why is he getting so big? He looks so different! He fits size 0-3 now, and his newborn clothes are all too tight. He’s about to bump up into size 1 diapers too. I love his lil fat body and all his lil rolls. He’s getting stronger, and is stretching his little legs and arms out much more. He’s smiling more and I cannot wait until he is doing it on purpose.
He got his first baths this week since his stump popped off, and seemed to like them. His lil legs were just a pumpin’ away in the water. Breastfeeding him is getting a bit less painful…it only hurts at first and then it starts to feel normal. Oh this week he started to be a lil fusspot. I think he heard me saying how easy and chill he was so he wanted to teach me a lesson. He fusses when hungry/gassy. But sometimes he’ll get his (big, mansized) burps out and still fuss afterward. He loves to be held, rocked and sung to, and I’m happy to oblige.
I’m just loving this little boy more and more each day. His sweet faces and sounds and his snuggliness. He’s got me wrapped around his lil finger. He’s got his dad whooped too. I love when he gets all drowsy while breastfeeding, and then snuggles into me and passes out. I could have him sleep on me forever.
Went to the doc for the postnatal visit. She said I’m still more swollen than she’d like me to be at this point, but said I could start walking if I wanted to next week, and can return to real exercise (and sex) in 4 weeks. It’s nice to have the tape off. Oh and my tummy’s going down a bit too. I forgot to take pics, but I will for week 4.
Mommies, I need your help:
- How do I get Roey to flip his internal clock? he’s up all night and sleeps all day.
- When did your babies start sleeping through the night? 2 months? 3? 4?
- Did breastfeeding make you extremely thirsty and extremely hungry all the time…or am I just a greedy guzzlegut?
- How much hiccupping is normal? My poor Sharkie gets them every 2 seconds!
Let me know!
