It is so crazy how fast time is flying. Everyone said once you have kids the months and years seem to zoom by. It is so true. It feels like yesterday I was at the hospital in labor with this little dude.
He has really turned our world upside down (in a good way). He was a fussy newborn, but the past two months he’s really come to life. His personality is coming out…and we see a temper on our hands! He gets so frustrated if he can’t reach something or get it in his mouth. He is teething like crazzzzy. And already has his bottom left tooth sprouting. I am still nursing, and I told myself I wold stop once teeth came in the picture. But honestly, I have grown to love nursing my son. Now ask me again, if he ever bites down! I ain’t got time for that.
I am still sleep deprived. He doesn’t sleep through the night….still! He might give me a few hours in the beginning, but then he likes to get up about every hour and a half…YES, you heard me right. Once I am a zombie around 4am, I put him in the bed with me. I know, I know, HUGE no-no…but at this point, it is all about survival. I need rest and so does he. I will probably try the crying out method once he hits 6 months. I am not looking forward to that. But I need to somehow keep my sanity. I feel like I am a walking zombie. I haven’t sleep through the night since before he was born. It WILL get better, that is what I keep hearing! I am not complaining, I am so happy and blessed to be his mom. It is by far the best gift I have ever received. When I hear his voice, coos, laughs and watch him smile, my heart melts. Completely melts. He is my everything.
