Anyways…it’s starting to warm up in Florida again. I’m hoping it’s going to stay this comfortable mid-70’s that it’s been for the past 2 months. We haven’t turned our air condition on in over 2 months, and we didn’t even have to run the heater this year. (Not to mention, the dirt cheap Electric Bill is so nice!) It’s mid-January already…in another few weeks (if the weather keeps on like it is now) it will be time to start hitting the beach. I’m so excited…I still have some work to do before I step foot on the beach in a Bikini, but I am down to only 5 pounds of baby weight to lose, so I think I’m doing pretty good.
I can’t BELIEVE how fast Noah is growing. I’ve always heard people say that they grow fast, but seriously. He went to the doctor on Tuesday for his 2 month checkup. Granted, he was a little past 2 months (10 weeks if you want to be exact). The little chunk weighed 13.9 lbs and was 22 1/2 inches long. He’s getting to be such a big boy! I was worried that he was overweight for his age, but Dr. Bhumi told us that he was perfect…not that I didn’t already know that, but then again I could be a bit biased. We have finally gotten him on a pretty regular sleep pattern. He’s waking up about every 4 or 4 1/2 hours. Not quite to all night yet, but we are definately getting there, and I can definately tell the difference. I don’t feel like a Zombie anymore. I actually get to sleep some at night. Plus, he’s staying awake alot more during the day time. He’s getting to the point where I can play with him some. He’s going to be a talkative little dude…and definately going to be one I’m going to have to keep up with. He loves to move. Seriously…he has one of those little vibrating seats that he sits in during the day time when I’m busy doing stuff around the house, and he pitches a fit if it isn’t bouncing up and down. He wants to constantly be in motion. I should definately get my exercise when he gets to crawling stage. He is doing really good with his sitting up. He still wobbles some, but he can pretty much sit on his own while propped up. He loves to laugh and smile. That’s the most entertaining part. He loves making noises and faces. I can sit for hours and just look at him.
He did have to get his shots the other day…that didn’t go so well. He did pretty good when they actually GAVE the shots, but about an hour and half later when he woke up from his nap that he started pitching a fit. I got worried because he was screaming so much. He isn’t a fussy baby at all…even with his acid reflux and the digestive trouble he had when he was born. He’s never fussed as bad as he did the other night. And I tried everything. We gave him baby Tylenol, tried a warm bath, put warm washrags on his little legs, walked with him, rode him in the car…nothing was working. I thought we were going to take him to the ER, but Doctor Dad came to the rescue. Turns out 1/8 a cup of sugar mixed with 4 ounces of water stops immunization pain. I had never heard of it. But it was on WebMD and we tried it (after all, nothing else had worked). Sure enough, he drank it, smiled and then slept for almost 6 1/2 hours straight. When he got up, it was like nothing in the world was wrong.
Anywho…now that I’ve done my mommy duty and rambled on and on about my son and all that, I guess I’ll close this blog out. By the way, I decided to re-vamp my “101 Things in 1001 Days” list and start over. Having Noah put a little bit of a halt on that, so I’m going to regroup and start over. Hope everyone had a great New Year!
