That’s what this week has felt like! It hasn’t been a “bad” week per say (how can it when your 7 week old starts off the week by sleeping thru the night?! Ahhh, I’m beginning to feel human again…)
I really meant to keep track of what happened everyday because I just couldn’t believe it all!
However, two notable “moments” –
1- Before Keaton’s dr’s. appt. Wednesday, he managed to DUMP his container of applesauce on his head …BEFORE his appt., so I had to give him a bath. Not a big deal, but I don’t know the last time I gave him a bath – a job that has fallen on Zach because it was hard for me to lift him while pregnant. So that was a lot of fun 😉
2- This is a “dirty” story -This morning, Benjamin woke up WAY earlier than normal – I was still eating breakfast, so I just sat him on my lap while we finished up eating. Well, while sitting there, he took his morning poo. So, I finish eating and let him finish doing his thing (for future reference, if anyone watches Benjamin in the early morning, his first poo is a process….a LONG process…haha) So I take him in to change him while Keaton finishes breakfast. I take his diaper off and he peed…all over his face!!! He was screaming bloody murder! (who could blame him?!) So, I wiped him all down (a bath is coming as soon as Keaton is down for a nap!) grabbed a new pair of pants and a onesie for him, turned around and he had kicked his leg and kicked the diaper ONTO his leg…poo was EVERYWHERE! I start to wipe him down with another wipe…and he pees…AGAIN! I finally got him all cleaned up and said something along the lines of him keeping me on my toes today – he laughed! Who could be upset after that sweet precious laugh?!
Randomly, I was talking with Michelle, our Lactation Consultant the other night and she informed me that she would no longer be with our pedis office anymore. I was devasted! Well, she offered to “hook me up” with some free “lactation supplies” so we swung by on Thursday morning (can I just say I got a FREE double electric PUMP!!!!!) and did an impromtu weighing of Benjamin! He weighs 12lbs. 11oz! At Keaton’s 2 month appt. he weighed 13lbs. 6oz. We don’t go for Benjamin’s 2 month for another week & 1/2, so I’m thinking he can match or surpass that! 🙂 Considering he’s wearing clothes that Keaton didn’t wear until he was 3 or 4 months old!
Here’s a load of pictures for your enjoyment…
