Brother Bear’s sweetness grows exponentially every single day. Here are a few highlights:
Skills: sitting up like a champ, wanting to crawl, chewing everything
Loves: flapping, smiling, squealing, watching E, bouncing in the bouncer, playing “boom!” with his daddy
6:45 or 7 He awakes and gets a bottle (7oz)
7:30 Breakfast-baby food time. Fruit and rice cereal.
7:40-9 Play, bounce, chew
9-10:30 Nap it out
10:30 Bottle #2
11:00 Lunch-fruit or veggie. The boy will eat an.y.thing. Then more play time.
12:30-1:30 or 2 Nap it out
2:30 Bottle #3 and then play
3:30-4:15 Last short nap
6:30 Bottle #4
7:00 Rock, sing, cuddle, lights out, sleeps all night like a little angel
All these times are approximate. Just a slice of a possible day.I love his schedule right now. It allows for me to shower (should I choose to) and get ready for the day during his first nap, while EBug plays games or has room time. Then we usually have time for an outing before lunch. In the afternoons I can sometimes, if I’m lucky, get their naps to overlap a smidge. Then we usually have popsicles and play outside, once they are both up, until dinner time. While he takes his last little nap I can start to prepare dinner. It’s perf.
He loves to grab my face, nuzzle into my neck, and pull my hair.
The separation anxiety has hit, and he is definitely most content when I am holding him or at least in his line of vision. Such a bittersweet thing. I love that he is comforted by his momma, but my arms may just fall off.
