Late September Update


  • Last week was busy, and though I took some video to put on here for our family and friends near and far, I did not get a chance to upload. Three video clips are posted below.

  • Although Buddy took his shots like a trooper in the office on Monday, he was in a great deal of pain later that afternoon. Both Hubby and I took turns dealing with a very fussy baby. It broke our hearts to hear him cry like that. The last time we had heard those cries, I think he was in the NICU.

  • Buddy is now giving us around 5-6 hours of sleep at one time at night. He has slept from 11ish to 5ish now the last few nights, and he is going back to sleep after eating. It still takes him awhile to settle in at night, but he is doing better. He doesn't really like a binky, and he has found his hand (yet not his thumb) to suck.

  • Buddy is starting to like play time. He is becoming a bit more interactive and slowly learning to smile more, hit toys, and other things. He wants to roll over, but isn't quite there yet!

  • I am trying to get Buddy on the E.A.S.Y. routine (eat, activity, sleep, you - time for Mommy to rest and get work done), but it is taking awhile. He often likes to sleep after he eats or if not sleep, fuss. If we do an activity he would sometimes like to eat again. I know he will get there, it will just take some time since I didn't start this routine from birth--- or rather his "due date" in his case.

  • Speaking of date, Hubby and I went on our first real date since Buddy was born, and our first time with both of us leaving him in someone else's care since he left the NICU. Uncle F-man and Auntie M came over to baby-sit Friday night while Hubby and I went to see a musical with two free tickets we won on the radio. I only called to check in twice! I knew he was in very good and very capable hands, and we were thankful for our time away. (But very glad to be back to see our little guy.) Buddy spit up on Auntie M and snuggled up with Uncle Fman apparently. I forgot to ask if Fman changed the diapers. Somehow I think Auntie M got stuck with that.

  • We are looking forward to seeing family and possibly some friends this weekend for Buddy's dedication. I have managed to scrub the guest bathroom today in anticipation for the company.

  • Whew! If you got through that update, you deserve a gold star.
