I'm still sick and have slept most of the day so far...so baby has spent all day with daddy. Luckily, he doesn't show any signs of having my sickness. He is getting bigger and bigger and his face is changing so much, it is kinda amazing. The pic of him in his bed is what he did trying to escape his blankets and wore himself out. So adorable.
I missed this day, but I am sure (or think I'm sure) that I had posted before Pete and I went on our date? I always check that it uploaded, but it isn't there for some reason and I am not sure which picture I took that day. Failure on day 72...but I am going to keep going and just pretend this Tuesday never
My poor immune system, or allergies, strike again! I have a swollen throat and slight fever. So I am kinda staying away from the baby today...but only after we had a multi houred nap next to one another :-S. Luckily, it looks like he has his papas antibodies and he doesn't show any signs of feeling poorly. Lets just hope that stays true over night. He did nap and nap a lot today, but that was before he was even around me, so maybe he is going to another growing spree. The pictures today are not very clear...they are of papa trying to get baby to walk on the counter. He is already asleep so I can't take more pictures, so this is what you get.
Metalica baby! Super cute onsie from the Mitchells and he is rocking it right in his nap. Such a funny baby, or mama ;-P we had a restful day, I think he is about to have a growing spree again...he has been sleeping for hours and hours at time and still sleeping thru the night.
I'm really tired today, so not much to say (or can't find the energy to say it). Baby is getting a little needier now, he realizes that his whining gets him held or attention or whatever so he has begun to make yelly sounds and fake cries just when he needs to be entertained. Pete went out to a friends and I must not be as much fun as he is cuz Tenz was requiring constant holds and talks and cuddles. I dind't get anything done till I put him down a half hour ago! He still goes to bed really well and is sleeping for 7 or 8 hours at a time...so that is all good.
Mom wasn't around cute baby much today...I had a grading paper thing at SLCC and so he spent the day with daddy. When I got home he napped on my chest and tried really hard to stay awake until way, way past his bedtime. He is beginning to cluster feed, we think. This is supposed to be an indication that he is going to start extending his sleep at nite. That is super exciting. I am kinda shocked and horrified about how much his face changes everyday. He doesn't even look like a baby anymore, no wait...he doesn't look like an infant but a baby and well on his way to a toddler!
Not much went on today...we went to Cars 2 and Tenz was great and slept the whole time even when kids were screaming left and right. We went to the Burns and Dude's barking freaked him out a little. The girls made a Lemonade Stand and we walked to the park and he seemed to like the shade and the cool breeze, but not the sun in his little eyes (when it went that way). I took a picture of him crying today...I realized that I focus so much on getting him to smile and take pics that I miss how cute he looks with that little frown. I wasn't able to capture the frown, but this scream instead. I will continue to work on the frown cuz it is really adorable.
We were out in the sun today at the Utah Arts Festival and T was bright red, but still a trooper. He wasn't crying or fussing and was relieved to drink his bottle of cold formula. Gulped it right down and it helped cool him off. We only stayed an hour or so, but that was enough for him. We then went up to Ogden and saw Great Aunt Helen and Great Grandpa Jack at a summer soup dinner. It was fun and he was smiley and adorable with everyone...as expected. He woke up 2 times last night again and I am not sure why he is getting worse about waking up? He ate right before bed tonite and stayed up a little later so I hope he sleeps? but it is just impossible to know how long he'll sleep.
Also, look at this adorable Sons of Anarchy Reaper Beanie for baby's! OMG!
Last night was a living nightmare! After he was grumpy and fussy cuz of his shots, he woke up at 1am screaming. We thought, as is usually the case when he wakes up in the middle of the night, that he was sick. So we fed him. Poorest, poorest baby every puked all that dinner up all over himself and his bed and his dad. It was so sad. I put him in the bath and scrubbed him down but I had to drip water up his nose to get all the puke out of it. He did not love this. He cried and cried like he has never done before and then he was so worked up he had a hard time going back to sleep. Luckily, once he did, he slept for over 8 hours. I didn't get to enjoy sleeping in as I had class this morning, but puked on dad was pretty happy.
We went to dinner with the Burns and the girlies had to pose for pics with Tenz.
Poorest baby had to go to the doctor today and get his 2 month shots. He had 3 of them and we paid for it all day. he wasn't bad when it happened, his eyes got really big as his brain registered that this wasn't a normal sensation and was not enjoyable. Then he cried for a couple of minutes, then he napped. But when he woke up from his nap, he must of still hurt or something because he was so grumpy all day long. He cried and wanted to be held and even then couldn't be consoled. He didn't have a fever, but it was so sad to hear him cry and cry...We gave him some baby pain reliever and that seemed to help because he slept. He had a lot of naps today. You can see the little bandaid on his thigh...
Dr. Pete says all is well with our baby. He is 23 inches long now which makes him an averaged height baby but his weight at 12 pounds 10 ounces is still a little bulkier than the average. He is our little linebacker...who will never play sports other than on the Wii ;-D.
I am a first time mom in my mid-thirties. This is to share pictures and daily info about our precious little newborn son, Tenzin.
