On the fuss
Oh how I love him though, he is so cute and sweet, even if he spends most of his waking hours looking like a grumpy old man. I could kiss every inch of his wrinkly little body! Even when he screams at me...it's still adorable. The girls were much more content with the big bad world than he is. My friend Robin said that maybe it is because he was early and boys develop slower than girls. I hope he is happier sooner. Not for my own sanity but for his contentness. I hate to see him so discontented even when in my arms or nursing.
Okay, I'll admit that it wouldn't HURT my own sanity.
Yesterday and today he had a few more minutes of quiet looking around time, and that was nice. Unfortunately it wasn't when I was holding him. But good for my mom and Sabine to get some yummy quiet and alert time with him.
In other somewhat related news,
Lawrence and I have started the tired competition...
How long will it take him to learn that I WIN this competition. Stop competing, love.
(If you don't know what this means...stay tuned...I promise I will talk more about this as the sleepless months wear on)
In other non related news, we got our first snow in Portland last night, it was unexpected and the girls had so much fun in it. Since it wasn't expected to last long, I even got my postpartum self out there on a sled and went down our hill with Addie, worried that the snow would not wait for daddy. After pulling them back up the hill, I remembered what daddies are for! :) Lily could have stayed out there for hours and hours, and did this morning while it all melted away. I got a great picture on my mom's camera, some of Bryson too...but at this point there is just no hope of getting the pictures and the words together on the same blog. Lawrence and the kids made a very cool fort after he got home from his 1.5 hr - 5 mile commute due to so many abandoned vehicles along the way home. Luckily the snow DID wait for daddy.
Sabine and I also started painting a stripe in Bryson's room after Carrie came over today to help me tape it. It's going to be great, and Carrie even convinced me to do 3 stripes rather than 1, as I had originally planned. I think it'll look perfect, I hope I can finish it this year, because the nursery is a MESS! It's hard to walk in there now with everything pulled away from the wall.
So with that, more photos to come...maybe...
I gotta go nurse Sir Fussesalot, and feed myself...so much for my nap time! Maybe I'll get some sleep tonight. HA!
